CSS, DB, and HTML changes

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Blogger.com was a great solution for doing all the backend work of writing articles to the site. They will no longer be supporting me and my ftp using friends. I have migrated to WordPress.

Want more? How about a site flashback? Hit more info for a fun look at my index pages throughout the years.

2010: WordPress Installed *Current
2009: Blogger.com FTP Publishing
2008: CSS Design
2007-2006: Flash menu and ugly frames
2005-1998: No archive pre 2005, but was java based toward the end

Hosting Fees

Monday, January 25th, 2010

I thought it would be interesting to figure out my hosting fees for the last few years. My awesome host is NFSN.

Hit More Info to see the cost table.

2007 was a seven month year.

Year Deposit Fee Registration & Renewal Bandwidth Charge Storage Charge MySQL Charge
2007 $1.00 $7.50 $1.18 $1.02  
2008 $1.30 $15.98 $2.73 $4.68 $1.47
2009 $2.15   $5.26 $15.17 $3.65

Looking at the data, I notice that my storage fees have taken a sharp increase. In two years the physical size has more than tripled to 225MB.

Then if I plot my storage fees divided by my physical size, I find the prices have stayed the same. This is the cost of growing I suppose.

New Front Page

Monday, March 9th, 2009

The main pages are now powered by blogger.com and will make post management easier for me. Previously, I was editing all affected html pages by hand every time I wrote a new post.

Site should look pretty much the same as before. There is a new archive section on the sidebar and a rss feed available in the header. For comparison I am hosting the old index page for a short time.

Forum Online

Friday, August 8th, 2008

Forum has been offline since February, but recently I was able to fix the database error on the old host and get the backups restored on the new host. Took the chance to update to the latest 3.0 phpBB too.
