A Good Beer Blog


Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.

Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."

Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."

The Web Way is to set up an HTTP redirect (302) from the old URL to the new URL. That way, Google Reader should learn that the URL has changed.

Whether it actually works I don't know.

I know. I will adopt an AM radio advertising strategy mixed with a small splash of fax machine viral commando marketing.

The bigger question might be: Why did http://beerblog.genx40.com/rss suddenly stop working?

If you visit the URL in a browser, it doesn't bring up the "page not found" error page, just a blank white page. Which means somethin' funky is going on.

You got any techie types who can help you out behind the scenes?

If you send an HTTP 301 (Moved Permanently) then any reader worth its salt should stop asking for the old address and ask for the new one. Less clever readers will keep banging away at the old one and at some point you can either break it for them, or figure out what's best to do with them.
