It all went to bat sh*t. I have some plugins, you know those things that do stuff on the blog, and they’re not compatible…
Well hopefully it is all sorted out now and back up and running.
Lesson of the day? Backup BEFORE you upgrade – no matter what they say, there will always be something to poke you in the eye with a sharp stick.
PS My mouse battery is just about to die and it is 2am in the morning – I hope I have a spare!

Just a quick thought. We have a saying in the UK that goes something like this:
Everything comes in threes.
Well first off I had to upgrade the forum http://ttyc.co.uk/
because there was a security upgrade and you just can’t not do those ones. Why? Because when the forum designers put up on their site that there is a security hole they also tend to tell you exactly where. The hackers love it.
Secondly the server where http://carpetdog.co.uk/
is hosted started to register a huge surge in CPU usage – It looks like someone was running a spambot that was sending out a million emails or something. Hopefully they will be caught and have their arses chewed.
Thirdly some tosser posted a ton of irrelevant crap on the http://diggup.co.uk/
site. What do these people think lots of visitors are going to have a look for burberry hats – BLOODY CHAVS.
Therefore I didn’t get a chance to do some work for my eBay project.
We had a great mentor brainstorm at http://give-me-some.info/about/easyprofit
. You really should check it out. Just one of these calls is well worth the pittance they ask for. The members are mainly friendly too
