This site is hosted on SiteGround but I love HostGator because their Tech Support Rocks PDF Print E-mail

I Love HostGator!

UPDATE NOV 19, 2011 - I've finally shifted all my SiteGround sites over to my HostGator Reseller account!  The last straw was not being able to do simple Joomla component installs (the indespensible Akeeba Backup), without getting timed out by SiteGround's slow ass, blocking my functions servers.  Endless tickets back and forth as SiteGround pretends it's not an issue with their slow-ass servers. No More!  Final sites have been moved to dependable Host Gator server hosting. Done and Done!

Oh, and I installed Akeeba Backup on the sites, without a burp or hitch or time out from HostGator. Thanks HostGator Reseller Hosting!

OK, so about 6 months ago all my sites on SiteGround started getting SLOOOW. No amount of tweeking cache or gzipping could fix them. Now, I admit, I have this site on a SiteGround reseller account, so god knows that's gonna get slow, when they load that server to the max and beyond.

I know the saying is, "You get what you pay for."  I understand that. I really do now.  Except that SiteGround isn't really that cheap. Especially when it comes to renewing a site, when they ask for over $90 a year, for slow servers and pathetic customer support. Yeah right.

When I was searching about for a new hosting platform for my employer's site, an online community for women of all faiths, as well as a publishing venture, called Prayables.com. I knew that I had to get their beta site away from SiteGround, where it was already bogging down in Reseller Hosting Purgatory (RHP).

For about 3 seconds I was tempted by SiteGround's Cloud Hosting, but since I found them such an ongoing pain in the ass when it came to simple customer support, I quickly came to my senses.

Plot Analysis of Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss PDF Print E-mail

green_eggs_and_ham_plot_analysis-2I know this is what you writers have been waiting for! A brief plot analysis of Dr. Seuss's fabulous kids book Green Eggs and Ham.  I wrote it up for a writers group I belong to, for fun.  (Yes, this is one of those odd things I do for fun.)  A seemingly simple children's story, Seuss's book actually has perfect plotting and exposition. It illustrates (pun intended) a lot about what a good writer can do with limited space and words— write a book that lives on for generations!

Exposition

  • Setting:

Unnamed public areas in and around possibly Whoville.  This book is essentially a Road Story, taking place walking, in a car, train and boat. Note: Book first published in 1960 (during Civil Rights, Cold War, Vietnam conflicts). This book reflects the conservative establishment vs. liberal youth conflict at the time, as well as the Establishment / Hippie generation gap.

young-frankenstein-young-frankenstein-cast.jpg_jpeg_image_250x340_pixelsWhy do I keep this site up and running, when I don't really blog much on it? It's my digital web SANDBOX!  Like a lot of digital gearheads and web developers/publishers, I keep this site up as a sort of "Sandbox" to play in. On any given week, I'll install, test and uninstall multiple Joomla applications.

I've also been known to install various Open Source apps like Drupal, WordPress, vTiger, SugarCRM, and K2 and test drive them in secret directories only I have privy to...Mwwaahaahaaahaaa!  It's usually better to mess up my own site, rather than take down a clients with all my digital tweeking!

So if you're ever wondering why my site is loading so slowly, it's probably because I've installed a Chevy Big Block inside it, and am trying to tune that Bad Boy whay whay up!

You Know You're a Writer When:

  • You are awakened in the middle of the night by a story that insists you tell it RIGHT NOW...and you do.
  • You have to think things over...by writing them down.
  • You got books for your birthday...or gift cards to buy books.
  • You've belonged to writers groups...plural.
  • The people who most influenced your life...are fictional characters.
  • You have notebooks, scraps of paper, bits of paper napkin...with writing on them.
  • You can't remember all the stuff you've written or published...and are pleasantly surprised when you rediscover it.
  • You often use words in stories...that you've never spoken or used in conversation.
  • when autographed books by your admired writers are your most cherished
    possessions.
  • You invent words such as 'liminous' (splice of liminal and luminous) and actually live such words. (Susana Short).
  • Someone asks you to close your eyes and imagine paradise you see yourself in a secluded place (beach, forest,
    etc.) penning or keyboarding 'paradise' away. (Susana Short)
  • You realize you're still learning how to do it right and constantly work to hone your craft. (Arnie Bernstein)
  • Oh, and you're getting paid diddly-squat for a lot of hard work. (Arnie Bernstein)
  • Your sentences finish themselves. (Robert C. Carroll)
I'm going to add more to this list, but please feel free to add more in the comments below!  I'll add them and credit you.
 
Testing Out: Tweets Module Relaunched 2.0 for Joomla PDF Print E-mail

Update: 4/21/08 I've been forced to turn off the image display in the module, because other "customized" avatars are not being shrunk down. Not as pretty in my layout, and I don't feel like messing with the code, so I'll be on the lookout for other module solutions. Free (software) is as free (software) does. Laughing

v2_still_glitching
Update: 4/3/09
I noticed last night, that the 2.0 extension is still glitching, presenting certain images non-thumbnailed (doesn't seem to matter if they are giif, jpeg or png). The software might need an adjustment to the php? No idea right now. I suspect it has something to do with Tweets who upload large "custom" images. Hmmm.
