WordPress 4.0

WordPress 4.0 “Benny” has been released. The download is in the usual place, but you are probably going to upgrade by clicking the auto-upgrade button. I did 4 upgrades and all went fine. I can’t say things look that different after it, but you’ve got to keep on top of these upgrades I guess. Cheers Tim… […]

Altering Hosting Service : The Gift That Keeps Giving

I moved my website to a new dedicated server about 3 weeks ago. As well as the usual DNS nonsense, I found out today that a whole load of emails have been blocked… I have a mailbox at the hosting company to handle all my email. That all gets sucked into Gmail. That’s the way […]

MobaXterm 7.2 Released

While I was away on that F5 Load Balancer I noticed MobaXterm 7.2 is now available. I made use of that and PortableApps.com to get a familiar environment set up… Cheers Tim…

F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 3

After the previous day’s “networky” stuff, day 3 was back to some stuff that was more relevant to me. Amongst other things, I got a quick primer on IPv6, which was pretty useful and we looks at iApps and iRules. It looks like I will be writing lots of iRules using TCL to replace the […]

F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 2

Day 2 was a lot more “networky”, so it was pretty tough. I got through all the labs and stuff worked, but if I’m honest I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. Added to that, I won’t have privilege to do most of the stuff we covered when I’m on the real […]

F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 1

As I suspected, I’m the only person on the course that doesn’t know what a network is. If I had not been tinkering with the reverse proxies over the last year I would have been pretty much lost. The course itself is well structured and the teacher is good. The fact I’ve not flounced out […]

WordPress 3.9.2

WordPress 3.9.2 has been released. It’s a security release with a bunch of important fixes for some nasties. The changelog is here. Depending on your setup, you might have automatically updated anyway. If not, go on to your dashboard and give it a nudge. Cheers Tim…

F5 Load Balancer Training Course

I’m on an F5 Load Balancer training course for the next 3 days. I have no idea what to expect and to be honest, I really don’t think I should be here. With the exception of a bit of fiddling with Apache reverse proxies, I don’t really know anything about this stuff, so I’m not […]

KeePass 2.27 Released

I just noticed that KeePass 2.27 has been released. I was introduced to KeePass at my current job and now I use it for everything at home too. You can read how I use KeePass here. Happy upgrading… Cheers Tim…

KeePass 2.26 Released

KeePass 2.26 has recently been released. I would suggest going with the portable version, which is an unzip and go application. If you want to know how I use KeePass, check out my article called Adventures with Dropbox and KeePass. Cheers Tim…
