And by that I mean…WTF happened to me and Felicity, considering our last post here was like six weeks ago?
Well. We’ve been OK, but somehow, one of the myriad pieces of baling wire holding our website together seemed to have failed or gone crazy or whatever. Even though we could all keep visiting the website, we couldn’t update it or access the admin panel from where we upload files, write posts, and do other important stuff. This really ticked me off, because I was just starting to get involved in a really good story, but I couldn’t do anything about it because it was time-sensitive.
I tried for weeks to fix the problem, and asked the hosting provider for help, but it was beyond even them. So finally I confessed to my LSW (long-suffering webmaster) that I was really, truly stuck (I would have gone to him sooner, but I was convinced that I had somehow screwed something up myself so I felt guilty). He rebuilt the entire site on another domain using a fresh copy of everything, and then painstakingly transferred all the settings by hand until now it works even better than before. He is truly a wizard!
Oh, and if you want to take the headline question seriously…I’m not too much of a Facebook guy normally, but I happened to get turned on to two Facebook groups with some seriously old hippies. One is called Not Necessarily Stoned, but Beautiful and the other is the 50th Anniversary Summer of Love bunch. Check them out!
