The Pondering of a lost mind

December 16th, 2008 | Tags: , ,

I’ve recently upgraded to the newest WordPress. I was a little scared given the disaster from the last time I upgraded… but thus far everything is working smoothly. This new dashboard will take some getting used to, no doubt. I suppose as wtih everything, it will only be a matter of time.

I am currently procrastinating and refusing to work on a paper that I know I definitely need to do. Distraction and procrastination are very easy. The actual writing… not so much. I suppose it wouldn’t be nearly as bad if it weren’t something so obscenely personal.

I keep hoping that I’m going to write more often, but I have this feeling that it’s not likely. I lost my “writer” domain. Not sure how that happened, but the registrar wants a ridiculous amount of money for me (the owner) to get it back, beyond just the domain fee. I’ll try to see if I can’t snag it once it’s available, but if I lose it, then, well, it’s lost. I suppose I could just find another… something that speaks to me in a similar way. I’m not sure though. I had the two domains because this one was my “online persona” for so long. And the new one was me now. I’m saddened, but I’m trying not to let it affect me to the point of tears. It’s an intangible thing, y’know, when all is said and done. It’s just a silly little webplace. Nothing super important. Maybe before working on this paper, I can look for a new one… maybe.

And now that at least an hour has passed and I’ve accomplished all of nothing for this paper, I think it’s time to close all windows and get to it. *sigh* I had such high hopes for this blog entry too. Ah well. Off tow ork I go!

    I hate upgrading WordPress, a process only made worse by the frequency with which they want you to do it. I’ve avoided the last few updates because every time I do it, I get hung up in database errors that I never knew about, or something like that.

    I wish they made it easier.

    I have a writing blog that’s been abandoned for over a year. It needs to be updated, too, but since I’m running out of things to say, I may just let it whither.

    (first time I think I used that word!)

    I had a mishap with and update once. I use the one-click install with dreamhost and normally it’s quick and easy, I don’t have to be bothered with anything. However, that one time, everything went haywire, and my blog started over again from scratch. FROM SCRATCH! I had to contact dreamhost and keep fingers crossed that they could just use a backup of the database and files so I wouldn’t have to start over again. I’ve been reluctant to do upgrades since. Though this one was a pretty major dashboard overhaul. I like it.
