A handful of posts on blogHarrisburg have decided to go wiggly lately. I thought I had the problem nailed on Sunday, but apparently it wasn’t so. I’ve made a few final adjustments to the site today and hopefully everything will be back to normal. I’ve also temporarily returned to the previous theme; the new theme was automatically trimming long posts, and while it shouldn’t have made a difference, it’s worth a shot. If everything doesn’t return to normal, or if the plugin author doesn’t update the code within a week, I’ll roll bH back to the previous version of WordPress.
This coming Tuesday (3/11/08), blogHarrisburg.com and floor9.com will be going offline for about four hours beginning at 4am. Steadcom is moving me to a new rack in the Pacific Rack datacenter for bandwidth and network improvements. With any luck, come Tuesday morning, you’ll check blogHarrisburg for your daily news fix and find that nothing has changed!
… you’ll be reading more about what’s happing with blogHarrisburg and Harrisburg Blogs. Until then, my apologies for this ugly-of-ugly themes. It’s only temporary.
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.
