29.march.2007 - Making final tweaks to the new forum. Installed two new mods today [making a total of 4]. One: admin mod, which will give us more control over the forum...
Also finished combing thru the Ghost guide and changed all links there that were pointing to threads at the old forum, to the same threads at the new forums.
27.march.2007 - Still dialing-in the new forum. I tried to capture much of my experience (lessons learned, both good & bad) in Sunday's blog entry...
There are certainly challenges associated with "upgrading" a forum (more accurately described as a > new installation & subsequent conversion) that involves a new URL .. which I hadn't fully appreciated (having never before attempted it).
Today's entry continues in the blog. See here > Dialing-in new YaBB forum software (v2.1)
25.march.2007 - We have a new URL for the (upgraded) Rad Community forums > http://radified.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl
But posts made to the old forum URL *after* 9:45 AM PST today will *not* convert over to the new forum (v2.1).
The remainder of today's entry is continued in Ye Olde Rad Blog. See here > Upgraded & Converted Rad Community Forums to YaBB v2.1 (new URL)
24.march.2007 - Looking into upgrading the community forums to the latest version of YaBB > v2.1 (released November 2005). Site currently uses v1.4 (released Nov 2004).
This particular upgrade may be different in that it seems to best method might be to install a *new* version of v2.1 (not an upgrade) to a *new* directory...
21.march.2007 - I always feel like I know someone better after I've visited them at their home and seen where they live.
With that, I have 4 photos for you, taken yesterday (first day of spring), near sunset, so you can see where I live (aka > "the ranch"):
The photos are nothing fancy, taken in the back yard. But you'll get an idea where I live, where the bug runs around & plays, and hopefully you'll feel like you know me a little better.
20.march.2007 - First day of spring (here in the Northern hemisphere). Also called the spring equinox, or vernal equinox. The word equinox means equal night.
Nature lovers the world over will be out celebrating, banging their drums and enjoying the day. I'm gonna try for a bike ride later, ~ 5PM, so I'll be out at the exact moment. (I don't have a drum, but I'll find something to bang on.)
18.march.2007 - Let's begin with good news today. My shoulder feels better (after months of being sore). Normally, shampoo'ing my hair hurts it worst (kills me). Today was the first day a shower brought no pain.
Coffee never tasted so good as when I decided to quit. I drink espresso, and I've been drinking more of it than ever. ("Quadruple-shot, please.") Seems the more determined I am to quit, the better it tastes.
The girl I spoke with (Tiara) said Radified was referenced by people signing up for new accounts there, as the place where they heard about Lunarpages.
There's always a link located at the very bottom of this home page.
12.march.2007 - Took along my digital camera yesterday (Sunday) on a bike ride around the (beautiful) Back Bay Loop (~10 miles) .. here in Newport Beach. Gorgeous summer-like day.
See here > Back Bay Loop bike path & Newport Dunes Park. Enjoy.
The pictures would have come out better if I took them during the "magic hour" near sunset (or sunRISE). But these will still give you an idea what the loop is like.
I need to feel an entry before I can write. I rarely write just to add words .. which seems trivial, if not phony.
The Rad forums specialize in backing up your hard drive (the ultimate way >) with an imaging/cloning program called Norton Ghost (distributed by Symantec). A back-up image can help you sleep better.
