November 2, 1996: Apologies to those who couldn't access the site yesterday. Seems the Halloween gremlins struck at the original site of The David Bowie File, bringing the server down (actually it was a programming error in my automated monthly turnover script :-().
However, it does bring up a good point; namely that people should change their bookmarks to reflect the new location, namely http://www.etete.com/. Currently, all requests to the old site are being redirected here, but this will eventually go away, so you should make the changes now to avoid any problem like yesterday!
