A Splendid Surprise Out of the Blue

uncorrupted hosting logo

Blogging, at least in the early days, can be a lonely thing (sobs). You may know the deal .. you shove out loads of posts that only Mum reads, tap your fingertips raw until Google realises you are one of those (relatively) rare breeds that actually writes original, half-decent content. Fact is, it takes a while to build ...

VPS Bible Reflects New Nginx/WordPress Versions, with Future Commitment

Nginx logo image

The VPS Bible has been updated to reflect the latest stable Nginx release – 0.7.62 – the effect that this has on the overall setup and, while we're about it, the latest stable WordPress release too.

Holiday’s Over, Now Coming Up

back to the web

OK, so I'm aware most of my subscribers are Statesiders, and I know you folks don't really do the whole holiday thing 😛 Being one of those antique Europeans, on the other hand, I'm a lazy sod and, being Spanish, my wife is even worse, so we kind of take a few weeks out.

This year, I'd planned to ...

a pint of beer

When I started this series I figured I'd cover it in maybe 7 or 8 posts.

I had more hair in those days, and you were younger too.

Apart from underestimating the subject, fact is, with the intended audience for the Bible being Linux and/or VPS newbies, I'd kind of pinned my hopes on uncovering some way to use a control ...

Guvnr Gets WordPressed (hey, I’m on your Dashboard!)

Guvnr, on your Dashboard

Like I said, I've had problems aplenty with my hosting provider Lunarpages * this last week – or was that two – who apparently aren't set up for traffic spikes and then lose databases.

I've taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen again and will blog about that.

* EDIT: Fact is, I binned those LooneyTunes, months ago now, after their “support” department managed to lose ...

Happy New Year, Snappy New Site & a Ton of New Content screenshot

OK, so we're all turkey'ed out and glad to be back at work. Sure, I was really thinking that last week on the ski slope. And I guess this is one of those years we face with a certain degree of trepidation.

Hey, you never know. Maybe Microsoft will go out of business, Internet Explorer finally gets binned and we're all laughing after all.

Maybe not.
