Welcome to 







Website News


In the life of a website, so much happens. Domains expire, servers go down, servers run out of space or time passes and the site is not updated. As the reader and visitor to this website who is looking for a solution, this can be frustrating and annoying.


This page will explain what is happening and why.


Active notice board


The Mickyj.com domain is not involved with spamming. We do not send out emails. Recently the domain has been involved in a number of spoof attacks. As there is no mail server at Mickyj.com and email is just relayed to my real email address then I have no mail server to be hacked or to spam with. This is a website only.

If you receive spam purportedly from mickyj.com please delete it. It did not come from us or this domain. Someone is fraudulently using this domain name.

for information about spoofing please look at http://www.mickyj.com/spoof.htm



Note changes to my backend domain. Any bookmarks including my RSS feed that link to something other than www.mickyj.com will not work. This also includes cached links in Google.

The Mickyj.com website uses URL redirection from NameZero.com to point to the host website at members.dodo.net..au. Dodo have cancelled the .net.au domain and elected to use .com.au. All previous links directly to the website or XML RSS feed have now broken. Old page records in Google now point to a non existent domain. I have requested google to index the new site and I hope the old links will be removed from the databases over time.


August 2007

Mickyj.com email domain name is being spoofed. I am receiving lots of email bounce backs to email I never sent. As this site does not have an email server (There is a catchall email domain attached to mickyj.com) then I am not able to send spam from this website. All spams are fraudulent.


July 2007

As space has become a premium, another community sub site on the Mickyj.com website (called Jota in the North) has been archived off to http://www.mickyj.com/jota - using Xoomwebs.com hosting. This is a free hosting hence it is very slow. As this sub web does not generate much traffic, this is seen as a way to keep both sites working as best as able, for free.


Blogs converted into a XML RSS feed

Icon created for the URL (Favicon)


June 2007

Due to the excessive amount of images and text, this website is running out of space with the ISP. If anyone has some web space they can lend to this community cause, it would be very much appreciated.


May 2007

Added Google Adwords to attempt to raise money for a larger amount of webspace without charging users. http://www.google.com.au/adwords
