Blog finally back up. I had to setup nameservers on this server and my machine in the states, ran into loads of problems of course, I can get nothing right off the bat. Money making site took preference so this blog was out in the wind for a few days. Email still not working and […]
Getting weird problems with my server that put it out of the action for most of the day. The error being reported was too many connections which I thought is a nice problem to have as loads of people using my website. But when I ran ‘SHOW PROCESSLIST;’ in mysql it showed loads of sleep […]
The old way to search bebo for old friends was through Google which was crap as they haven’t indexed all profiles yet. The solution? Use Bigulo the Bebo search engine developed by a Des Traynor doing a PhD in computer science. It also lets you check who has the most friends and who’s rated the […]
