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.

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.

May 27

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  🙂

I hope, anyways. I shouldn’t say that *I* upgraded – Darren actually did the work. Except my rss feed still doesn’t work – there’s an error on line 5 apparently. If anyone knows anything about this error, any help would be appreciated:

An invalid character was found in text content.
 Line: 274 Character: 5

<p>Â

I fixed it. Am brilliant. Amazing. Divine and gorgeous.

Also, I have reactivated Akismet in the hopes it might work and turned off the requirement to have a previously-approved comment. Hopefully, there will be no spam and I will be able to free non-spam messages from it.

I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel: I have one section on a paper to write and hand it in tomorrow, and the course I’ve been teaching is 2/3 over.

I have a bunch of stuff burbling around in my brain, not the least of which is my doctor’s appointment tomorrow. Its time for the annual poke ‘n prod, and she’s going to offer a refill on my birth control, which, well.

After 15 or so years on birth control, almost continually, I think its time for a break and let my body regulate itself for awhile. So we’ve discussed and we’ll just see what happens.

There are other benefits too. It means I actually have to drag my flabby butt to the gym a few times a week. The entire reason I went on birth control in the first place was because of The Cramps. Like just about passing out from the pain type cramps. The only things that make them manageable are birth control and exercise.

So that, as they say, is that.
