While the Patriot-News is busy yelling “It’s On!” at people complaining of plagiarism, Jersey Mike is busy thoroughly scooping them by liveblogging from this morning’s political event. Hop over to his site to watch the fun.
In a few more days, we’ll throw the switch on the shiny new blogHarrisburg forums located at forums.blogHarrisburg.com. We’re doing this to help address the growing mountain of criticism that seems to be constantly levelled at another unnamed forum (I’ll refer to them as the other “Popular Local” forum to help protect their anonymity). Before doing so, I’d like to hear your thoughts or opinions on what the forums should be.
SRSLY. If you’re reading this, you’ve found the new server. As of this post, floor9.com and friends are running on a VPS in the Los Angeles datacenter of Steadcom. Right off the bat, I’m seeing MAJOR speed improvements over BlueHost even on simple things like WordPress administration (and my editor no longer takes 8 seconds to open up!). There’s actually been a LOT of work going on behind the scenes over the past few weeks to pull this off, not the least of which was massive stress-testing and a major security lockdown. Plus, I’ve been doing a lot of testing of various software packages to use with some of the Neat Tricks ™ I have up my sleeve for the coming weeks. And last but not least, I managed to get Contemporary Ruins off the ground and running smoothly. I’m still in the process of seeding the wiki, so don’t expect any great finds just yet, but it’s kept me busy.
Seems that someone didn’t appreciate the footage captured by Roxbury News.Â More than one local political-type figure has had more than one embarrassing and/or inappropriate outburst, antic, or instance of conduct preserved forever thanks to Roxbury.Â And now it seems that maybe, just maybe, one of those political-types may have bitten off more than they can handle.
