Hey! It’s Moving Day! I registered my own domain and transferred all the stuff over there!
So you’ll need to change your bookmarks to point to http://resolvingtimelineissues.ca, the new home of Resolving Timeline Issues.
The new feed will be there shortly, so update your feed readers from there.
…you get four entries today. They will be done in order to complete NaBloPoMo.
I really should have scheduled posts in advance. I’m usually pretty good at planning, but not so much with the pre-planning and pre-dating blog posts.
And the last post today? Will be a doozy that will probably result in loss of followers on twitter and people abandoning my blog.
In lieu of a post, I made a page. Click the “About” link above.

Or maybe it is.
Some soul came to my blog via the search: how many glasses of wine to blow a .157.
Heh. Honey, I have no clue, because you know what? Yeah, I enjoy my wine, but when I have too much I make liberal use of public transit and taxis.

- Comments Off on Apologies
Apologies to anyone in a reader – I’m uploading a bunch of old posts. You can probably just hit “mark all as read”.
Today is May 21. I have no idea when this post will actually be published. Over the weekend sometime, my blog was hacked and the database is gone. Last night, I was hanging out at the Momocrats’ live chat about the Kentucky (boo!) and Oregon (yay!) primaries, and mentioned my blog was hacked. John J. was in there and said this has been a recent problem with wordpress.
Note to other wordpress users out there: IF you are using WordPress 2.5, upgrade to 2.5.1 IMMEDIATELY. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. It’s a free upgrade – just do it.
(Do you think Nike will come after me for that now?)
Oh and one of my gmail accounts also got hacked. If you got an email from me about cheap electronics, please disregard and delete it. My apologies.
Yes, the passwords on both accounts were the same. Coincidence? Maybe, but maybe not.
Did I mention ALL of my posts are gone? I’ve been trying to retrieve them from Google’s cache, but its tedious and time-consuming. If anyone knows a quick and dirty way of doing this, please let me know.
But, enough about idiot hackers.
I’m using a new feature in Word 2007 to compose this – they actually have blog templates which you can upload later. So once the blog is back up, I’ll see if it actually works.

Today, I got an email from Katie asking me where the blog is. So I thought I should get off my duff and get this thing set up. Its now set up on WordPress’ free hosting whatsit. I wrote the above in Word on the 21st, published it directly from there and OMFG it worked! Hopefully at some point, I’ll get the archives back up. So for those of you in using readers, you may see a whole bunch of posts all at once.
And it seems to work – well, mostly. I like it anyways. It makes life much easier.
(Yay! Apparently 2006 and 2007 are in the wayback machine!)

Blog is moved over to a new server now – it should run a bit faster and just generally work a bit better. The new version of wordpress seemed to clog the old one a bit. Oh and the blogroll is updated a bit. Like adding Huckdoll to it. Among other things. Go there to see.
Moving the blog also seems to have cleared up some other issues – like mybloglog actually links to it. Technorati, not so much and they seem pretty slow about doing a manual activation.
Yesterday I had to work for a couple of hours – well, my apprentice did most of it. Then they found poo in the pool so we cut that bit short. Seriously, one tiny little turd that no one noticed for at least an hour and then they superchlorinated the entire pool (because the turd was there for an hour) and shut the pool down.
Bet you want to go out to your public POOl now, don’tcha? 🙂 Don’t worry, the superchlorination takes care of everything. Really. Trust me. I did this for 15 years 🙂
