Wow! AKM, you picked a snowy night for the move. Chain up, take it slow, and I’ll see you over there. I’m bringing a big thermos with hot coco & schnapps.

If anyone is having issues with the new blog, please email me at unlocktroll@gmail.com and I will try to help you sort them out.

The server did go down for a short while but all should be fine now.

Also, that email address works if you are having problems with the forums too. Most problems are easily solved, we just need to know what they are. ;)

I am wondering why I cannot log onto the forum site either through , “Join the converstion” or at my own personal email where I have personal messages. Is there something going on right now?

8 12 2008

I am not able to open the PM sent to me.

Never mind. I just saw the post on this site showing that the site was down. Do not scare me. I thought my computer was screwing up. Whew!

Goalie I can’t get in either. So I think it may have crashed again. ;(

Dang…moving troubles/growing pains! It’s to be expected.

I’ve been back and forth with the error messages, too. Have a feeling we can stand by and get the skinny here. Snos prolly busy to the eyeballs, AKM too.
Time to get some work done on my end as well.

Check back at both (or all 3) later.

8 12 2008
Goalie in NM

Good idea CRFlats!

I’ll check back after a hot bath…it’s cold here today! We may have some snow tonight and into tomorrow.

Man…I am a little embarrassed to say that I feel kinda lost when I can’t get access …grin…(I tried the emoticons and they didn’t work either!)

The word from ServerGuy is that there is a wayward module in the software causing an excessive load on the database. So, if you know what that means, you are enlightened! If you don’t know what that means, join the club! And join me in a moment of Zen as we watch the snow fall…

In any case, it’s being worked on and will hopefully be up again shortly!

The forums are up and running. Click the link on the sidebar!

but then i’m easily entertained.

South Side Chicago–AKM, thanks for the gravatar info, maybe I’ll get me one…

Sorry the move is being difficult on all of us. The snow is falling again. I will try again later. I thought I was getting a head start on catching up with my quietly visiting with y’all mudflatters.

Read (hear?) you later!

HuH! I thought Grifter spice might of shut AKM down :(
I have good news! First where is everyone at the forum?
I recieved a response from Rep. Berta Gardner re: email I sent re: SARAH PALIN
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns and opinions with members of the Alaska State Legislature. Like you, many of us are dismayed and disappointed that our Governor who campaigned for open, transparent government, who welcomed an investigation and who called on us to hold her accountable, has turned out to be more talk than action.

We expect a formal report on our investigation when we get to Juneau in January. I, for one, am looking for answers to the discrepancies between the Personnel Board and the Legislative investigations, and I want action taken against those who defied subpoenas.

Best regards,

Berta

I take this as GOOD NEWS!!!! I thought it was nice of her to email me back.

Hey everyone..

Keep an eye on this thread for the latest news on the blog move..

http://www.themudflats.net/forum/index.php/topic,4821.0.html

My latest post there –

WordPress is an imperfect kind of thing. We’re using 2.7 which still has not been released to the public but is in beta mode. Every day they have a revised build of it which we’re supposed to upgrade to. Of course when you do that you lose all the settings you spent some hours carefully putting in (this I only found out yesterday) and you also run the risk of the version you were running before you upgraded being better than the one you just upgraded to, or them accidentally breaking things with the changes they have made.

Last night we were trying a new plugin (wp-cache was the one we were using but that isn’t being developed and wp-super cache is being worked on daily along with 2.7 so we wanted to use that) and it seemed to cause a big crash. But thinking about it now, maybe it wasn’t the plugin – maybe it was the daily upgrade which we had done just before hand.

It is now no wonder to me that the release date for this software was a month ago and it still has not been released. I am just hopeful they can fix it to a point where it works, else it will be back to wordpress 2.3.3 for us.

Some really good humor for Mudflatters enjoyment:

Here’s a link to Robin Williams before a London audience that includes Charles and Camilla Windsor… About 9 minutes of laughing:

Political Irony ð Robin Williams on Obama’s Election, etc.
