WordPress 2.8 is Here and Upgraded

Here I am at it again. Hopping directly into the new WordPress release as soon it hit the mainstream. Unmindful of things that could happen to my blog if something’s not right, or bugs that’ll definitely appear, or any of my plugins could break. I even forgot to deactivate the plugins first before proceeding with the upgrade.

The fact remains, I am a loyal WordPress user. And I loved the innovations introduced throughout the years in this favorite web platform of mine. Nevermind the bloated issue, as long as it’s working. (Just like my attitude towards Ubuntu. Yes, it’s bloated. But it works out of the box.)

Anyway, the new release offers some more enhancements. And I can’t wait to be the first to try those out. Check out the release announcement here, or watch this video: Continue reading

The Back-End Story

It has been a gruelling experience. Deuts.NET even has been down for sometimes.

I hate that Hotlink Protection feature in Bluehost’s cpanel. It almost drove me crazy figuring out how can I salvage all my posts and files in the webserver.

I just hope everything’s fine now. If someone finds irregularities and bugs, please help me and bring them to my attention immediately.

WebHost Shift for Deuts.Net

Indeed, the only thing that’s permanent in this world is change.

Because of increasing projects and a need for more webspace, more bandwidth, and more domain names to accomodate into one hosting account, I’ve decided to shift from a previous hosting account with PlogHost to a new one in Bluehost.

I have been with PlogHost for almost two years now, and my experience with them has proved to be satisfactory. I experienced a number of downtimes during those times, but yeah, not really to the extent of reaching an alarm level. Overall, considering the cost at which I was paying them, it’s all worth it. I would really recommend Ploghost to bloggers and website owners who are especially just starting out and residing in the Philippines. Add that to the fact that the owner, Abe of Yugatech.com, has been very accomodating to my request for a leeway as my account was overshooting my monthly bandwidth limit for the month of January 2008.

Anyway, the year is yet very young, and a good way to start it off with a new webhost and a new design. Looking forward to more blogging years with Bluehost.

P.S. If you are seeing this post, it means that the shift has been successfully accomplished and you’re already reading this post from the new host.
