Server Problems

I don’t know if anyone who’s been following this blog may or may not have noticed that I’ve been having problems with the mysql server as of late. What happened tonight is another reason I’ll be moving to another host hopefully by the end of the year.

Before moving this site and my other site I’ll be setting up another website with another host and get a “feel” about setting up a site at another hosting company, before moving this site.

I’ll be posting updates to this blog at some point during the next 4 weeks or so 2 months. Just need to see how thing’s go during this time.

Update: I think it would be at least another 2 months before moving from my current hosting/register provider, just haven’t saved enough money to do this. Hopefully, I’ll be switching hosting providers by summer beings. I’ll post something here in a few months time.

Itunes 7.5

When installing updates to programs on a computer whether its a Windows PC or on a Macintosh computer there’s always a chance that any upgrade would go wrong. I got around upgrading iTunes to version 7.5 on my Windows PC and after the installer updated Quicktime I kept getting errors that were important iTunes files that weren’t found in order to run. After looking in the support forums on Apple’s website and from what I could tell that there seems to a problem with part of the update installation package. While reading the posts on the iTunes forum it seemed – to me at least – that the problem lied with the Quicktime installation of the iTunes package.

It seems that the only way to “fix” this problem if upgraded to iTunes 7.5 while getting various errors is to downgrade to install an earlier version of Quicktime – like version 7.2 – I think is the last version that is / was available.

The thing is that I didn’t get any errors while upgrading iTunes on my MacBook Pro lapto. It also seems like that 9 out of 10 times there are no problems while the remaining time there is a problem while upgrading software and or hardware. But then I never really liked to get my hands “dirty” that much while doing upgrades in some matter on my computers whether its my Macintosh computers or my PC.

These problems happened after I got my PC back from the repair shop, while this problem while upgrading to the current version of iTunes I thought to myself that I don’t need to take the computer back into the repair shop just yet. The only “major” things to do on my PC is get another hard drive (larger hard drive – like around 500GB – would be nice), and get some expansion ports put in, and a new video card too. But those upgrades would have to wait. Though I would have preferred to have or get things done at the same time but things like this never do, and yet it might be to much to do everything at once. After doing this next set upgrades would be it for my PC in regards to hardware upgrades.

Though I’m thinking of getting a new Windows PC at some point over the next couple of years but at this point I’m not certain if its going to happen. If I do get a new PC, I think I would try to get a mid-range system that would have a number of possible upgrades that I could do, I’ll just see what happens over the next couple of years about getting a new PC.

bye for now
