Google Reader cache-ing feed behavior

Monday, April 21st, 2008

In the last couple months I’ve been “farming out” several domains from the site. I previously hosted my South Carolina Genealogy, North Carolina Genealogy and Online Radio TV sites all in the same virtual server as Well, I’ve noticed some strange behavior from Google Reader as a result…. read on.    Send article […]

Another Status report and upcoming articles

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Everything seems to be back to normal now after the server upgrade and the migration of one of the “child” domains out of the account. I do have several other “child” domains that will be migrating off of this server in the near future, so we may have a few blips, but overall I’ve got […]

South Carolina Genealogy Site current redirecting Here

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

The South Carolina Genealogy Site is the first of my other sites I’m farming out to another server, so at the moment while dns settles that is redirecting here. Sorry for the inconvenience if you’re looking for SC Genealogy content. It will be back up soon. Update as of 9PM all has settled with the […]

Experiencing some turbulence

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

I knew for some time that a server upgrade at my hosting provider was coming – they were essentially upgrading the underlaying software. (New versions of apache/php/etc. the entire system.) The original time was postponed and I breathed a little sigh of relief because I host somewhere in the order of 7 domains here. Well, […]

Back into a Routine

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

I think things are settling back to where I’ll be doing some more routine posting here. I know I’ve been sporadic for the last several months, but the truth is that at one point I had poured so much time into my sites I really burnt out on them. Now I’m taking a new approach […]

Upcoming “thought” dump

Friday, December 7th, 2007

As you can tell, it’s been a little while since a post here. Partly due to health/partly due to being busy. I wanted to note a few upcoming posts are coming to round up a couple trains of thought that I’ve still got running (due in part to the open browser tabs that I just […]

I’ve got a home project to run more network cable here lately and found techtoolsupply to be an interesting resource for network and other cabling supplies. I don’t recall who I ordered from last time, it’s been several years (and those big spools of cable last for years unless you do a LOT of cabling.) […]

Comment Spam

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Deleting TONS of comment spam that had slipped in unnoticed in the last couple months. I may have to generically disable pingbacks as well as comments. (Sad…) I hope I haven’t dumped legit comments in the purge, but…. really life is to short to spend too much time filtering it manually.    Send article as […]

So many browser tabs, so little time – the swirling vortex

Sunday, September 16th, 2007

The last few weeks have been fairly eventful and I’ve accumulated quite a few web pages open in tabs that I’m still holding open (just counted 49 tabs across two windows.) Many of these things are just for my own memory and others will be posted because I thought they’d be of wider interest. For […]
