The Official Travel Notes Blog

Just when I was feeling content that we had almost renovated all the destination pages and checked the dead links, the hosting service we used for 1800-Countries.com, Meta-Travel.com, 1800-Olympics.com and 1800-WorldCup.com websites pulled out of their data centre and closed down operations.

Sadly, although they had a notice on their homepage, I only found out about the closure the day everything went dead; having been on the road a lot lately.

Rather than spend time looking for another host, I've moved these properties onto the main Travel Notes server.

The Olympics and World Cup pages are static HTML, so that wasn't a problem to get back online, but the database tables for the favourite countries travel articles, meta-travel forums and topsites were lost.

While the travel forum was becoming too much hassle keeping the spammers at bay, we were using the topsites directory for our link submissions.

As I didn't keep a back up of the registered users on my hard-drive, I don't feel like building the database content up again from scratch; especially when there's so many other projects that need my attention on Travel Notes itself.

Alas, I now need to go through and change all these links; although we have hastily set up redirects and put 404 pages in the sub-directories to try and soften the blow of not getting to where you expect to go.

I apologise for the inconvenience and hope that the new projects we're working on will excite the travel community.
