Log 1: The Log in which I talk about creating the Log

I've created this "Fix Log" primarily so that I have a singular location to share the solutions I find with others, and to make it easier for others to find those solutions.  Secondarily, this will make it easier to find my own solutions if I need them again.  Lastly, this will help me keep a record of progress.

Much of the time I will either be linking or reposting solutions that I've posted elsewhere.  I may even be linking to solutions I find elsewhere.  I don't know if I'll follow any sort of posting schedule, but I doubt it, because things that need to be fixed rarely follow a schedule.

I've created this log using Blogger, but changed the address from a subdomain of to a subdomain of  When I first created the blog on blogger, I chose the domain "", and it failed with an error.  When I tried to create the blog with the same subdomain it said it wasn't available.  So there's something funky with creating blogs with Blogger using custom subdomains.  I next created the blog using a subdomain of blogspot,  This worked without issue.  I then changed the address to through Settings>Basic>Publishing in the blogger settings. redirects to the new address. This was easy to do because I had previously setup the CNAME for

I first thought about calling it a "Tech Blog", but a tech blog typically contains news about new technologies, so I decided that wasn't appropriate and changed the name to  I called it "fixlog" intead of "fixblog", because honestly I've never been a fan of the word "blog".

If I want to use in the future, I don't know what I will need to do.  The fact that the address gives a "404" error makes me think that using that address might require some sort of fix, even if I were to use it for something unrelated to blogger.  I have no need of the address for now, and foresee no need of it in the future, so I'm going to leave it for now.

If someone wants to follow this blog, they can follow it through blogger, or I will mostly likely be posting links to the blog on my twitter at @stewartjmartin
