As some may have noticed my site was recently taken offline. This was due to some low-life piece of crap hacking my site and using it as a way to scam others! I had been a Joomla user for many years but to be honest have grown very tired of the constant security issues.
I am very pleased to say that Joomla is gone. All posts from the old site have been migrated over to this new one. You may experience a few broken links, and for that I apologise. I’ve tried to do the best I can ensuring all links and pages work correctly.
To the company I am hosted with and the server I am hosted on, I thank you for your help getting my site back online.
It’s been a long time since my last update. Lots of things have been happening. Between promotions and big jobs at work, to funky stuff out of work it’s been a long and at times, stressful year.
But that aside, it’s Christmas time! Now granted, it’s not usually a good time for year for me. But this year i’m determined to make it better.
So… i give you our Christmas tree. This might not seem like a big thing, but in honesty, it’s the first tree we have had in 15 years! So yeah, big thing! Enjoy.
First and foremost I apologise for the delay in updates. Time, it would appear, has got the better of me.
It’s been a pretty busy year. Work has been a priority, and now that i’m a supervisor it’s been busy at times, which I am more than happy with.
I would like to apologise to all those I normally work with for site updates. I am endeavering to catch up and fulfil my obligations. This weekend will be all about Drovers Rest and Baby Massage. Don’t ask, it makes sense to me.
I will also be posting updates on a few cars i’ve driven lately and a few other things.
Over the course of the last week I have made some major changes to the website and have migrated from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 1.7. The update has involved the total rebuild of the site, and as part of the build I have made some changes to the content.
The biggest changes to the site are the removal of both the video system and the photo galleries. In place of the old HWDVideoShare system I have installed a Youtube video module, which allows for much easier video integration. The photo galleries were not used, so the removal of those should not make much change to the site.
Additions include a new blog menu item which will contain 2 new categories; site updates and sports. These are a for casual updates rather than the more lengthy articles which are in the other menu items.
For the next few weeks I will be in testing mode, so you may experience issues. If you do, please let me know.
