Most Interesting Error in Going to Hulu… 7

Most Interesting Error in Going to Hulu…

I went to Hulu this afternoon to catch up on my HEROES. I didn’t get to see it on Monday, so I knew that I could go up there and watch the show without issue. Or COULD I? Turns out Avast won’t have it. It is blocking the SWF from playing and saying “Malicious Code”. Tried a few times in Firefox and IE. Every show or movie I try to play comes up with the same thing. Here’s the kicker – neither Avast nor the Event viewer is showing any more info. In fact, it’s not even logging the event! Could this be a malicious code? Could it be that Avasts’ database is off? Maybe Hulu changed some stuff to thwart Boxee from going through the RSS backdoor? Well, there is a way around that. I went to NBC.com and watched the episode. I hope it’s not a...

Small Crisis Averted – iPod / Zune Giveaway status

Today I was working on the site and the delete button jumped up and bit me! OW! We had a small issue, and I had to restore the backup database. There were a couple tables that were restored from the weekly backup. There should be no data loss, but if you signed up for the site this week, you may have to do it again. Speaking of signups – Some have been asking about the iPod – Zune Contest info. According to the rules I set up (found on the Giveaway Rules Page) I will be choosing a winner today. I will email that user and they will have 7 days to respond. Once a winner is acknowledged, I will post the results. NEWay, thanks for being a part of the site and participating in the contest. I have taken your information to heart and will be using...

WordPress 2.5 is out 0

WordPress 2.5 is out

 updated 7:45 CST Today WordPress had released the final version of 2.5. I have successfully installed it into my Sandbox and am playing with it aggressively. I will be adding information as I go, but here is what I had so far: First of all, for those who don’t know what a “Sandbox” is, this is an area I designated as a test area. In this case, I have a computer at my home in which I installed XAMPP (an acronym for Apache, MySQL, PHP and PERL – the X stands for the “Four”). The Sandbox is a great way to test new plugins, CSS code or anything. One thing to keep in mind in mantaining a Sandbox, though – make sure your Sandbox matches your websites credentials (example – if your Sandbox is running PHP 5 and your website runs on PHP 4, then the test area is pointless)....

Upgrading Existing site to 2.5 RC2 0

Upgrading Existing site to 2.5 RC2

Last week we did a clean install of 2.5 and all went smooth. Today we’ll run 2.5 on an existing database. The First thing I did was backed up the existing Database. Once that was accomplished, I proceeded to install 2.5 in a clean directory. Next week we’ll talk about installing plugins and widgets to get 2.5 back to where it was before.

Customer Service – How Social Networking makes the job that much harder.

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS*Updated 03-13 -08. See Below Snafu.  Freedictionary.com defines it as “A chaotic or confused situation”. The word SNAFU is an acronym, in which most of it I cannot decode here, so I’ll fudge it a bit. Situation Normal All Fouled Up. If you were to go through a snafu a few years ago with a company, you would most likely grumble to your friends and family and then move on – Little impact on that. However, in this day and age, a Snafu can really come back to hurt. With Social Networking rising 47 percent year to year (according to Nielsen Netratings), this can really give companies a tough time if problems arise. But still, can social networking cause a company hardship because of a single or series of transactions?
