New Aquarium!

I was actually visiting the parents from Wednesday, came back Saturday afternoon. It’s a good thing I did. The plane was way late leaving Trenton due to thunderstorms, and I walked in to check my two tanks. Notice a little water around the edge of the 10 gallon, a nice Marineland with the day/night type […]

Mobile Theme Temporarily Disabled (Update) Back On

I’ve temporarily turned off the jetpack mobile theme, because it’s restricting comments, even my own when logged in. Don’t have time at the moment to fix it. Update: turned back on. I had to disable the ability “Let readers use WordPress.com, Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ accounts to comment”. It was causing an error about outside […]

Is Pirate’s Cove Secure?

One of y’all reached out and asked me about the security message that you can see up in the browser bar, which reads “Your connection to this site is not fully secure. Attackers at this site might be able to see the images you’re looking at on this site and trick you by modifying them.” […]

Note On Privacy Policy And Logging In

The plugin, called WP-Monalisa, will not allow for the uploading of the extra ones I added in, and believe me, I’ve tried. I can’t even deleted the plugin. Maybe things will […]

Having A Problem With The Emoticon Pack

For some reason, the Monalisa emoticon plugin decided to do something weird, so a bunch of emoticons need to be relinked (which is why I never upgrade the plugin, but, it ended up getting upgraded, long story). Won’t be able to fix till tomorrow or so.

FYI On The F Word

Just a note. I was taking a period look at the spam que, because sometimes things end up there that I want to rescue, and noticed a bunch of comments in the trash bin. They’re there because the F word was in the comments. At least one of the tools used for WordPress, could be […]

Big Changes To WordPress – Everything Look OK?

There was a big update to WordPress. I don’t see any issues in in Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer (interestingly, I can see the Live Traffic widget on IE). Everything look fine on y’all end? My concern is about some code in core files that could have been automatically changed.
