Oh man

I broke my site’s permalinks and have no time to troubleshoot. Please hold while the post links don’t work.

UPDATE: Wow, do NOT change permalinks without first planning. Bad things will happen otherwise.

Well that went well

That server move went absolutely swimmingly.  I didn’t even have to reinstall the associated accounts for sharing. I love it when tech turns out to be a lot less work than you expected. This is how tech should be people!

I’ve got the backed of the site up almost identical to the paid service I was using. Oh, on that note, you’ll notice no ADs on this site anymore. WOOHOO! I personally hate ads, but I had to try an equalize the hosting cost. Which I didn’t do. Which is why my site is back to local. If it’s slower loading, sorry, but the shared hosting just didn’t seem that much faster anyway.

I know, $12/month isn’t that much…except when you have kids. So forgive me.

If traffic increases I’ll likely go back to external hosting with ADs. Even if it makes me feel dirty.

Another Change

Is coming to TK. I’ve been busy with (local) server admin this winter. Also, it seems that I have put the cart before the horse on this site.

I followed the if you build it they will come mantra, which was wrong. I should have built it locally and let the traffic flow to this site. But none-the-less, this site isn’t covering hosting , which makes it infeasible – financially.

Hey it’s my fist non-personal website tat is neat for public consumption. Forgive me for my excitement.  I should have left it on the local server and let the traffic hopefully build before I moved it offsite.  Hence the cart-before-the-horse analogy.

Right so what I’m going to do is move it back to a local server. and let traffic hopefuly build If the traffic reaches the self-sustainability level, I’ll move it back offsite. At least on a local server, I won’t have to put ads on it.

Remember, TK is most definitely a work-in-progress. Updates may be a bit sporadic through the rest of this month, but after the move  I plan on producing some better content for TK.
