Reading: Saturday, December 19, Post B

My response to the book at this point is something along the lines of *i didn’t see that coming . . .*. Someone probably saw this coming, but i didn’t see it that Fat Charlie would be looking for his dead? father. Fat Charlie didn’t like his dad much, and he was the one who buried him .. but it was his brother that suggested that their father *Anansi* might be playing a trick on him. The reason that his brother thinks that is because Anansi is a spider that played tricks on everyone and they all hated him for it. This wouldn’t be the first time he’d have played dead. Every now and then the book tells an Anansi story *an example is the tar baby*. One of the stories they told involved Anansi ‘dying’ and being burried only to come out of his grave in the night and steal food … then run off and steal again the next night. If he’s playing dead .. it’s just for kicks *also something he’d do*. I really have no idea where this is going to go next … but my final reaction to this point is that this is a great book and it hasn’t hit it’s climax yet.

More Forum Construction…Finally Getting Results!!

Well… now that it’s been about a week without my forums being available I’ve finally seen results!! I was able to sucessfully restore 99% of the forums to the previous state..and the only things missing are avatars and the RC7 update (you know, the one that caused all of this is the first place)! Today, before I do more homework, I will try installing the update AGAIN. If this doesn’t work, I still have my backup, but it might be a while before I have the time to do real work again.

You can view The Forums at [mntcomputers.com/forums2.0] … and you can view progress updates here.
Thanks for support and such,

Things getting behind…

Well…I guess I’m starting to really get behind on my outside of school work. My icon set hasn’t made progress for a week, my forums are permanently doomed (well…), my tip of the week on Home.MNT is missing this week’s tip (not sure what to do yet), and now I can’t find the mistake I made in version 1.5 of Attack of the Snowmen (nor can I think of a better name yet)!! Anyone with ideas on how to fix my databases is welcome to comment, but I doubt anyone reading will have ideas on this. 

End of The Forums… For Now…

Well… I updated my forums to the latest version, phpBB3 release candidate 7, and ended up having my entire forum die. You can see the types of errors you get if you want by going to the old url [mntcomputers.com/forums2.0] … but after all of my attempts to use my backups I just can’t get them back to where they were **sniff**. I’ll be giving more efforts still when our shortened week ends, but for now I have created the new forums which I will do nothing to until all hope is lost for The Forums. Feel free to see the RC7 version of my empty forums at [forums.mntcomputers.com]. 

Another thing to note is that my forums share what’s called a mySQL database with this blog. While I could have made a seperate database for the forums, I didn’t know how when I created them…so I’m stuck sharing one. Since I will be doing a lot of database tinkering in that area, don’t be surprised to see my blog go down for a couple of days unnoticed.

[UPADTE!!] Good news!! I am still having major trouble with my link, but I have gotten as far as to see the old index page and topics! [http://www.forums.mntcomputers.com/index.php] is where you can see it… and no, simply typing the url without index.php doesn’t work right now.
