Lol if anyone is subscribed to my blog, then you may of recently received about 144 new emails from this blog.
That’s because when I imported all my posts in to my blog, I forgot to disable the Subscribe2 plugin!
Of course why!?
I have moved hosting, I am now no longer hosting my website and blog on Lycos webhosting, I have moved to Hostgator!
I was with Lycos for about six years, and three of them was using Tripod, Lycos free hosting!
I have been meaning to move hosts for a while now.
I have had no trouble with the service provided by Lycos, and the times I have had to contact their support I got quick answers!
But, there was some limitations with the way the server and PHP were setup.
For example, to get my blog working correctly I had to have two additional plugins. One of them changed the default compact WordPress rewrite rules to the verbose type.
And the second was to disable canonical redirects. The server was setting an incorrect $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’] value, which sometimes caused some pages to time out with constant redirects.
I contacted their support staff and they said that they were unable to support a 3rd party product.
I installed their One Click Site install of WordPress, but it was version 2.3.2, which doesn’t suffer from the same problem. They told me that they had no plans to upgrade their version of WordPress.
I can’t remember where I heard about Hostgator, but so far its been good!
The control panel is a little confusing, but that’s only because I’m not used to it yet.
They allow you to have multiple databases, so I have separate databases for my blog, website, and linux-links.
I went with their baby package, which still works out cheaper than Lycos.
And the best bit!?
I have been able to ditch the two plugin’s, and all parts of my blog still work!
But I am still using Lycos to serve my domain’s from.
All the hype surrounding the Large Hadron Collider causing the end of the world, and all we get is another long uri!
It had to happen! After posting about having toothache, it was gone the next day!
When I went to bed that night it wasn’t that bad, and in the morning it was all but gone!
I can’t see if anything has emerged, so I haven’t got any wiser! Lol!
Since Sunday I’ve had toothache! And I’ve been regularly topping myself with paracetamol 🙂 lol!
I believe it is one of my wisdom teeth, I didn’t realise I had any wisdom! Lol!
The pain goes down to the bottom of my jaw, and it hurts if I open my mouth too wide, and swallowing is a different story altogether! Lol!
I’m so glad for paracetamol!
Alright, so the sudden flurry of posts at the start of the month soon died out! Lol!
But why the sudden activity, and then nothing?
I was going to try and start posting more often, not long posts, just short ones, little snippets of information and short stories about nothing in particular.
Well, I had two in mind, but as always, I just never got around to it! Lol!
Not much has happened, the only two things that I can think of is that my girlfriends oldest brother became a dad, they called him Liam and he was born on the 6th of August.
The other is that I have started working on a new site style, and seeing as I have a week off I haven’t touched it! Lol!
It’s in the same style as the current style, but I’m going to rearrange where the sub menu’s appear, and the layout of posts and comments. This will mainly affect the blog side of my site, but I might bring some of the changes into other areas of my site.
