Well it’s been almost 2 months since I had a real update here, and I figure I might as well do one now since I have a brief moment away from the raging whirlwind of horse shit that is my busy, busy schedule.
As I stated in the previous but brief log, the server that msleeper.com and our network sites are running on had a bit of a hiccup recently with a few services, namely email. For about 5 days, no emails were going out from the server and the various sites hosted here, but everything has been updated and should be working properly. Not only does it work, but it works better than before! The server now functions as an operational mail server, bringing us one step closer to total autonomy.
I’ve also finished up the last bits of a huge overhaul to msleeper.com’s inner workings, and how everything operates. I wrote a neat little function for BBCode parsing, mostly for ThinkingWithPortals’s front page, but I’ve decided to include in all of my sites just because it is a neat little piece of code. This doesn’t really impact anyone or anything, other than you might start seeing pointless, out of place bits of stylized text for no good reason.
MyPHPsig is going to take a big leap here within the next month or so. The site has grown at an acceptable although slow pace, and I think it is about time to move it up into full status. At some point in the near future, I will be activating some long commented out code, and enabling a bandwidth restriction on MyPHPsig users. Out of 100 or so users, only about 3 or 4 actually hit this limit since you need about 15,000 hits per month to get there. Anyone who wishes to have more than the 500mb of transfer allotted a month, or anyone who wishes to have more than 25 pictures, can upgrade their accout to a Premium User and get 1gb of transfer and 50 images.
Of course, MyPHPsig will remain free for everyone and upgrading is only an option. I haven’t decided if I want to start throwing in randomized ads for MyPHPsig and/or put a watermark over images at random, but we’ll see how the Premium User thing goes first.
Lastly, I have started working on a few other small PHP programs that I will be adding to the site here within the next few weeks. Actually, expect the site to go through a major change in terms of content soon, since a lot has happened since I started recoding (read: abandoned) the old CMS tool I wrote. DNF, Portal, and new PHP projects are abound!
