Graffiti Redirect 404

This is an unusual blog post as it's the destination for unredirectable 404 pages for the old Graffiti CMS that used to host this blog.

A couple of blog posts back I wrote that I had migrated this blog from Graffiti CMS to Blogger. I changed the domain of the blog from a non-www version (guyellisrocks.com) to the www version (www.guyellisrocks.com) so that I could host a redirector on the non-www version.

The redirector receives a request for the original URL and then using a bunch of rules and pattern matches attempts to redirect to the new page on Blogger, this blog that you're reading now. However, before it redirects the visitor it checks to see if the blog page exists in this blog. If Blogger returns 404 then it logs this missing lookup and sends the user to this blog post.

At this point, you should type your query again in the search box above and to the left and it will search just this blog for the missing post.

If, in final desperation, you still can't find what you're looking for then feel free to reply to this post and I'll try and help you.
