WordPress and thumb drives
Nov 9th, 2008 by Babs

Okay.

I recently figured out how to install and run WordPress on my own computer. My ultimate goal is to install and run it on a thumb drive but my current 2-1/2 year old Sandisk 2GB Cruzer is too slow. Every time I try to install WP instead of getting the “Success!” page I get just a page with the WP logo on it. WordPress insists that an installation has occurred but it won’t let me in as there is no user registered. :( I’ve heard that the thumb drives available now are faster but I’m unsure as to whether they are fast enough to keep WP from timing out. I could get an enclosure for one of the two remaining hard drives I salvaged from my old computers and use that, but a thumb drive would be so much easier to keep with me.

*sigh*

Wednesday night I arrived at color guard practice to learn our captain/instructor, Sandy, had quit, due to “irreconcilable differences”. I’m wondering if we can impeach our Board, Manager and President. Over the last two years the corps. has lost a good many members to other alumni groups, so the last thing we need to drive more away. But what do they do? They piss off an important staff member. One who could take at least half the guard with her. I can only think of two reasons that would be severe enough to make Sandy quit. One is that she’s being forced to write a whole new show for the guard, the other is that they let Ellie back. Either of those would probably make the rest of the color guard leave. We tried the whole new show thing last year. It was HELL! We weren’t given ample practice space, let alone ample practice time, so stress ran amuck. We made it clear to the Board we weren’t going to do it again. As for Ellie, well she’s a fucking bitch that nobody wants to work with. :D

Thursday Amber T. Pusscat scared the beejezus out of me when she went hiding under the Teen’s bed for a day, after a night of spewing and shitting everywhere. I have no idea what caused it, but she is obvioulsy feeling better now. Both this morning and evening she jumped into my lap at meal time to remind me she hadn’t been fed, yet. I’ll have to keep a close eye on her to see if she’s getting into anything that I’m not aware of.

Thursday night Glenn secured himself a part-time job at a local liquor store. Yes, the alcoholic will soon be spending his nights surrounded by booze. *facepalm*

I received an email from Sandy last night. Apparently those irreconcilable differences were reconcilable after all. She’ll be back next week. I just hope they caved, not her.

My wrist is now wrapped up in a nifty wrist brace because the combo of color guard, hand washing clothes, and surfing the internets has wrecked havoc on it. It is much fun trying to weight train with it on. Not. I have no choice, however, because the free weights put stress on my wrist, too.

I found this in my email this just a bit ago: http://www.savetheinternet.com/blog/2008/02/25/comcast-blocking-first-the-internet-now-the-public/ I didn’t think Comcast could sink any lower. Sadly they have proved me wrong. I think it’s time we vote them off the planet.

I’ve been going through the bounced members lists of all the Yahoogroups I moderate/own. Today I’ve noticed an increase in bouncebacks. This periodically happens due to a particular host deciding that another host’s content is spam and blocking email from them. Today’s finding was particulalry humorous because the host doing the blocking is Yahoo.

Yup, yup! Yahoo is blocking email from Yahoogroups. *laughs*
