This blog still exists!

Well. I’d forgotten about this blog! I was just looking at my old webspace (that I keep renewing with the host provider as I got a really good deal when I set it up 15 years ago!), and I installed an ftp app on my new phone and logged in and found the folders for this blog. I tried opening it and there was a problem with the database, so with a bit of fiddling I managed to get it up and running again!

Now that it’s running I thought i would try to begin blogging again (not that I ever really started before, but hey, I’m lazy!), so… here’s a new post from me! I will try to update more regularly, and more often. Let’s see how long I can keep it up!

Bye for now!

WordPress Updating….

Well, WordPress emailed me to say I have to update my site. I logged in to find that the automatic update had failed, so I tried again from the Dashboard and it didn’t work, neither would the plugins update…

I left it for a while (for “while” read “months!”), as I couldn’t be bothered to attempt a manual update as it seemed like a lot of work, and then i kept getting multiple emails a day asking me to update.

I thought i’d ignore those for a bit (months!) too, but now…finally… I went through the instructions and managed to manually update WordPress via my ftp access to my site! Yay!

I don’t notice anything different, but I feel better for it! 🙂

Well that’s the boring update out of the way. I’ll try to make the next update a little more interesting!

Hello world!

Welcome to “My Way or the Pi Way”, my very first blog where i will be…actually, I have no idea what I’ll be doing, as this is very much a work in progress with no plan, or scheme, or anything, other than I thought I’d install the WordPress software on my webserver, and play around with it and maybe post stuff.


Welcome to anyone who gets lost on the internet and ends up here, in this small corner of the web. I’m glad that you came. There will be tea and biscuits (or coffee if you prefer).
