I’m sure that by now those of you who have been trying to access the Salty Ham website either through our link or on your own have noticed that the site is down and that it has been for quite a long time. But I’d be willing to put money on the fact that not as many of you have taken the time to read the nice friendly error page that greets you when you get there. Hell, I work for them and until about 5 minutes ago I hadn’t read it either. But now that I have, I’d like to point something out.
This is a direct quote from the the page cannot be found message that you get when you try to access the home page. Note the use of the words home page in what I just wrote, otherwise you probably won’t get what I’m driving at here.
“Contact website: You may want to contact the website administrator to make sure the Web page still exists. You can do this by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the website home page.”
As I read that again I can’t help but wonder how many people are currently caught in an infinite loop trying to figure out why they can’t get that phone number. Come on, you know they’re out there.
