The End of this Blog for now

Hello

If you’re seeing this post … then that would mean that this would be the last post for this blog. I’ll be taking this blog and this site down for the foreseeable future. Along with this site I’ll be taking down my other site. I doubt that I’ll be putting either site back online anytime soon or if not ever.

This site most likely would be coming down this weekend at the earliest.

If you like to continue reading post’s by me please go to akpdx.wordpress.com.

Goodbye for a while or for good……

doing some site updates

For those who are interested, I’ve done some minor updates to my main site. Its all of those little things that I’ve missed when I did a last update to my site which was some time ago. I also did a few things to make the links more highlighted – though that may not be the right word to use. Anyway, my site should get an updated look to it soon, which I’m starting to plan out.

As for this blog, I’ve changed the theme to something more “colorful” than to what I had before on this blog. So, if you do come by this blog leave a note in the comments if you like the new theme or not.

Speaking of themes, when I get my system the way I would like, I’m going to try and sit down and develop my theme for this blog and the rest of my site. Though it would be awhile before I would actually sit down and develop one.

Anyway, there’s probably going to be some more miner updates to my site over the this coming summer. However its going to be a hit or miss type thing, since I would be moving to a different city this summer – I might said where in another post. In other words I’m going to be busier than normal this summer.

Bye for now….

an update of sorts

Just an FYI to those who follow this blog and or who visit my site every so often. I’m in the process of adding Google AdSense to this site to basically try to help with the cost of hosting this site and my pet site. The thing that was preventing me from doing this a couple of years ago – was that I needed a mailbox at my home which I didn’t have ’til last week. Though I did have a mailbox at my home a couple of years back though it got ruined over the winter and I never really got around to get it replaced – ’til this summer.

Though its going to take some time to actually update the whole site with the code.

As for an earlier post about the troubles that I’ve been having with the MySQL Server with my hosting provider as far as I know its been “fixed” but I won’t hold my breath. Seems like that there is some kind of problems with the MySQL server every so often that happens at my hosting company. Don’t know why the server’s “act up” like this but I think its bad for business and frankly they (the hosting provider) should update to the current release build of MySQL and php though after doing some testing before doing a system wide update/upgrade of the server software. But that’s just my 2 cents.

Anyways, getting back on topic, I’m going to see how the ads will do on my site between now and the end of the year. Depending on how this endeavor goes – will move my plans up on moving to a new hosting provider and move to a new domain register – otherwise, hopefully, I’ll do the move of this site later this year.

bye for now…

P.S. This post may be updated at some point but don’t know when or if this post would be updated or not.

site problems – yet again

Just FYI to those who follow this blog in readers, etc., I’ve been having intermittent problems with the hosting company that I’m currently with. I don’t know how long these problems would continue and I’ve already sent an email to tech/customer service for help with the problem that I’m having with the MySQL server

Updates will follow soon.

feed update

For those who are following this blog using the regular feed located at myjournal.peterlbrett.com/index.php/feed/, I found a plugin (located here) that would forward that feed to my Feedburner feed. i found this plugin when I added a Feedburner feed for the comments for this blog.

I’ve also been having trouble with servers since late Wednesday so the site was slow while using Firefox 2. But don’t know if anyone else was having trouble loading the site with other browsers.

bye for now…

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.

Peter

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.

site problems

For those who follow this blog I’m currently having a problem with the feeds and other things too with the host I have in some fashion. I won’t name names but currently I ‘m trying to get things corrected with the host.

Updates (hopefully) will come over the next several weeks or months.

Peter

Update: Things have been fixed for now, but going to see how things go for a while.

Blog Update

Well I’ve update the back-end software for this blog and this is the first time I’ve had any visible trouble/problems with the upgrade process. Before I did any upgrading I backup the db and the files that I had. Though I had trouble uploading to the wrong place, got everything working – generally again.

Then I had trouble with the sidebar for the theme that I was using when I upgraded, tried to revert to the default sidebar and that didn’t work. Then I tried the default theme that came with the wordpress install and the css wasn’t even work, so then I tried the classic theme and that works.

While I had this trouble all I thought and dreading is the fact that I might have downgrade to the version that I’ve been using. Which I didn’t want to do. This also showed me that I need to change hosting company and register for my site. The hosting company and domain register are one in the same but I won’t name the company here.

Anyway, I don’t know if I would be doing anything anytime soon. The last time I did promise something major I didn’t deliver on that promise, which sucks big time.

I think the main problem now is that I’m starting to have (very) early trouble with my hosting company, but my problem is that I don’t know which hosting and such to transfer to or how to do what I need to – if you could understand what I just said. One thing that I should do is to go through the plugins and themes that I’m not using anymore or if at all. Well that could be said for the rest of the site.

bye for now…

Miner updates

For those who follow this blog you might notice the change in the title because 1) I want to see what works and what doesn’t work, and 2) I wanted to change it for a bit of time, finally 3) the purpose of this blog might change to a varing degree by the end of two months time. Though the url/feed title that I have for feedburner will remain the same.

Other updates to this blog would be primarly minor update’s up to any website move. When and if I change hosts there would be changes to the permalinks and other changes too to this blog and site.

I’ll post something well before I’ll actually move this site and the various wordpress based blog’s that I have on this site.
