New Design

3SHARESFacebookTwitter In light of Chinese New Year/Lunar New year, I changed the design of this website to something different. I was getting tired/bored of the old design; it had a few issues. Plus, with this design I am able to do more – in terms of back-end changes and I think it looks better – all in all. Old design: New design:   Although when I look back at these screenshot’s, the first doesn’t look too bad; if I am honest. However I like change especially this change, I feel my website looks more modern. New logo:   The sub-logo or slogan says “Welcome to my life!” in Mandarin. I feel the language looks visually beautiful, so I used Mandarin for this reason. Although most of this blog is in English, hopefully if anyone asks about what it means, they would have either of read this or they can alternatively just ask me. : ) Though I doubt many people read my blog anyway....

WordPress media uploader

5SHARESFacebookTwitter I’m a little late on the WordPress update as of recent to 3.3, however I’m loving the new layout and features, that I’m now discovering. The biggest feature in the update, in my opinion, is the new media upload function. It works similar to that of Google’s online Picasa; which I use frequently. Which is originally why I used Picasa. However with this update in mind,  I feel no need to make use of Picasa. Although I’ll use a lot of webspace, uploading my own photo’s to my own server, it will be much much easier now. Before I had to upload my pictures one by one. Now it is as simple as copy and drag into this new uploading function. Thank you...

Switching Web Hosts

Switching Web Hosts

5SHARESFacebookTwitter I’ve been doing some moving around of my websites to other web hosts recently. However the reason I made the recent move to another host was because I disliked the way their support system is structured. It seems they use third-party providers to provide support for customers. While that was OK for me, the design was pissing me off and I am not going to pay $30 per month for something like that. Although if I am honest, they provided a decent enough service and they provided it free (I signed up using a coupon which allowed me to use their hosting services for free). So I won’t bad mouth them or say they were bad, that would be totally unfair. However, I will not be continuing my subscription with them. The reason I switched to that host The previous host I had before the host I mentioned above, sucked big balls. Their server seemed to always overload or have slowdowns which would affect me when I was at work typing up an article on my military website or my space website. Plus I believe it probably put off users as even when I thought at the time, things were normal, it was far from the truth. So I made the switch, I saw considerably improved speeds and I didn’t regret switching one bit. As for the crappy host or slow host that I was with, I paid around $15 per month, then I switched to a better host, which was $0 for three months and now I am with a host which is $3.95 per month. It’s quite funny. However now I believe I’m with a host that I’ll be with for a long time. After my websites pick up traffic and after I start making a decent net-profit, I’ll probably switch again to Eleven2 hosting, which is one of the most renowned hosts I’ve come across on a web hosting forum called “Web Hosting Talk”. It is funny because when I was in the UK, I used to rent a dedicated server which cost me around 120GBP or $240USD per month when I was running my free web host. That server was a beast and the host I was with (WiredTree) were of epic proportions. If I ever need a dedicated server or a VPS, I know exactly where to go, WiredTree or either KnownHost. (As price matters :D) I moved to another host, which for the good of things, is considerably cheaper. (Although they do seem stable enough, in fact their name is “StableHost”) – They have been around for quite and while and I moved...

Target reached

3SHARESFacebookTwitter Today I created the 100th article on my military based website over at Armour.ws. In January of this year (2011) I promised myself or made a goal to reach 100 articles on my armored vehicle website before the end of this year. I still have roughly 2 months left before the year ends which gives me enough time to create more quality articles for the web to see! 🙂 My most recent article is on the situation unfolding in Syria at the moment. Mostly I have included my opinion on the situation over there. (Syria the next Libya?) Dependent on how the situation develops over there will sway my opinion on the next article I write. However I firmly believe the west should do the same to Syria as was done in Libya.   I doubt Russia is going to do much or China. Their voices have long be drowned out of the world stage. The west has more power I'm afraid even though it may seem to be moving towards China. Although I of course want peace in the world,  I don't want to look back in history and see the killings that happened in Syria and lecture people and say "The world stood by and did nothing…"! I mean look what happened in Libya. As soon as Col. Gaddafi was overthrown who came running to the NTC? China and Russia. Yet they opposed or abstained from the UN vote to intervene. The same will happen with Syria. The question remains whether it is viable to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad with his 300,000 strong army. The base of operations would likely have to occur in Turkey, however would they agree to that?    However it seems the world is coming to the stage where mass atrocities that take place are not dealt with anymore. I seriously do not want to see another Darfur where the world stood by and did nothing as 300,000 people were slaughtered and 2 million displaced. That is not the world we should live in. I also must reiterate that if an atrocity is taking place and we can definitively do something about it which in the long term will benefit the people, action should be taken. Although I know some will say it is frivolous to compare Darfur to Syria, it is the same thing. It is the systematic killing of innocents  but done on a smaller scale. But who really knows the real figures on the deaths that occured in Syria? The Syrian government banned all foreign media, so there really is not middle perspective on the ground at the moment.     ...
