Code Changes
Jan 20th, 2008 by Mike

Today I made some code changes to the template that displays this site. That little guitar that displays below each post is now part of the background code instead of code in each post. The advantage is that (1) I don’t have to cut code from a text editor and paste it into each post and (2) if I want to change the icon, I can just change it on the server by uploading a graphic with the name post_bullet.png. The disadvantage is that if I change the template, I have to make code changes to a few files in the new template.

Tomorrow we upgrade to WordPress 2.3 (If I have time).

That Wasn’t So Bad, Was It?
Oct 13th, 2007 by Mike

As advertised by my host, IX Web Hosting, we were only off the air for a short while. Less than a day by my calculations. So now I can regale you with more nonsense.

Preparing for Upgrade
Oct 9th, 2007 by Mike

I’m getting ready to change this site to newer servers at IX Webhosting. So if we go offline for a couple of days, you’ll know the reason why. Hopefully, all will go well and we’ll be offline only a short while.

Got FTP Back
Aug 8th, 2007 by Mike

Looks like my host repaired the FTP issue. Now it seems like everything is slow. It took 33 seconds to load the write page. Does it seem slow to you?

Darn Host
Aug 7th, 2007 by Mike

My host for this blog is having difficulty with its server. I tried to upload a modification to the index file for the theme I was using, but the server wiped it out. Now the theme renders a blank page. So I switched back to an old standby until they get it fixed. (bb this is the entire post).

Updated Subscription Program
Jul 31st, 2007 by Mike

I recently upgraded Subscribe2, the plug-in that supports email subscribers to Major Mike’s Musings. With short posts, subscribers will get the entire text to the post. With long posts or ones in which I insert a “read more” break, subscribers will get a partial post and must visit this blog in order to read the whole thing. Thank you, subscribers.UPDATE: Evidently, the hack I had on this blog interfered with the sending of these email notifications. I’m working on it.

So Sorry
Jul 30th, 2007 by Mike

This site was hacked and hijacked by EmN. 😈 I have been away from monitoring Major Mike’s Musings for a few days so I don’t know how long the site’s been down. I had to go directly to the database to delete the hijacking entries.

Kickin’ Back
Jul 17th, 2007 by Mike

Thanks to some periodontal surgery I had today, I’m just kickin’ back, watching TV, reading, and playing on my computer. I’ve upgraded my local blog, which is my test site for this one. The WordPress latest version is 2.2.1, but I’m not having much luck with some of the sidebar widgets–those things that display the content in the sidebars–so I haven’t upgraded this blog, yet. I’m also playing around with new themes. None are exactly what I want, so I’ve had to do a little programming. Anyway, that’s how I’ve been killing time today since I’m not allowed to do any heavy lifting or sports for the next two days.

Surprise
Apr 6th, 2007 by Mike

I changed the theme of Major Mike’s Musings from P3Orion (a theme I created) to Tiga by Shamsul Azhar. I hope you like it. I needed a little more territory on the sidebars, so I went with a three column layout. I hope you like it.

Upgrade
Mar 5th, 2007 by Mike

I just upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.1.1. The task was complicated by my Internet provider, Comcast, having some intermittent trouble providing service. So, if any of you tried to access this site during the last couple of hours, sorry. As you can see we’re up and running again.

Sorry Folks
Sep 29th, 2006 by Mike

For those of you who have been trying for the last two days to enter comments, I apologize. I had recovered a backup of my blog from a local server and neglected to change the server address to the public one. Dah.
