Website Upgrade

Yesterday my mayhematics website was unavailable due to the bandwidth limit being exceeded. This appears to be due to more people looking at it and downloading pages from it. There was a big spike at 4pm on Saturday for some reason. So I have had to upgrade to the next level, which about doubles the price to be paid each year to £60, which still seems very reasonable. At any rate I hope this resolves the problem. Perhaps I should look into ways of charging for donwloads.

I'm also thinking of registering some other domain names, since the subjects covered on the site do not all fall logically under the "mayhematics" heading, they have all accumulated in one place due to previous service providers closing down or not continuing to provide support, and due to changes from dial-up, to cable broadband, to telephone-line broadband connections.

Probably it is about time to upgrade my computer as well, but I dread all the problems that that could throw up so will probably leave it to the last minute as usual when it will be unavoidable.


  1. Mr. Jelliss: I am one of those who would like to download interesting stuff from your Knight's Tour website. Your quotes, references and citations are both extraordinarily interesting and terribly deceiving as there seem to be no (easy) way to get in touch with most of the material you mention. It is very difficult for somebody in a "third world" country as me, to get to know the works whose existence would have been ignored if not because of your remarquable effort...
    Sincerely yours,
    Chile (South America)

  2. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post's to be exactly I'm looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for you? I wouldn't mind publishing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome site!
