Some people may have noticed that most of the links to Japan Times articles on here don’t work anymore. This is because the JT recently renewed its web site a couple of weeks ago, and while they seem to have imported all or most of the data from the old site to the new one, they don’t appear to have added any redirects for outside links, which means that everything you click just dumps you unceremoniously on the JT’s top page. Given that there are hundreds of JT links on this site as a result of my work for them, there’s no way I’m going to be able to go over this whole site fixing them. I’ve moaned about it to the web people, but I’m not holding out much hope. Sorry.
UPDATE: Have been checking with JT people and it seems to have been a glitch and all, or at least most, links seem to be functioning OK now. Hopefully things will stay this way now, but since it’s a new web site there may be future glitches, which will hopefully be sorted out similarly quickly.
