Updating My Movable Type

I'm posting this from my iPhone. That's actually the second update. The plugin that helps for easier posting from my phone depends on the first update, which was me taking a big leap of faith and bringing my Movable Type...

Hurm.com in 2007

Hurm.com was registered on July 15, 1997. Which means, of course, it'll be 10 years old in the middle of next year. How will I celebrate, if at all? I'm not sure, but I do know that, to help my...

No more cross-posting of Local Heroes

Typically, when I post a new Local Heroes strip, I mention it in both the Local Heroes and Nowheresville blogs. For Nowheresville, it's been sort of a cheap way to keep up my monthly post count. I decided I'm not...

Hurm.com now at DreamHost

Trains in Nowheresville once again on time

Yes, the Nowheresville trains are once again running like clockwork and according to schedule, now that Movable Type seems to be working properly on the new hosting server. Update: Also, www.nowheresville.org will now work as a proper domain name. That...

Security Issues

Hurm.com (Hurm Studio, Local Heroes, Nowheresville, etc.) pages have been having some security issues for the past few days. I'm trying to keep up, but in the next few days I'll be moving all of Hurm.com to a new host....

Hurm Store Gets Dedicated Page

I've listed a "store" for a number of my ventures (Hurm, Local Heroes, Nowheresville, Freeborn, the BS&R, and Avalon) for a long time now. That store has really just been merchandise from Cafe Press, but it's my hope that, at...

Hurm.com Contact Form

Remember that that spiffy new contact form that I recently mentioned I was working on? Well, I've started switching links on my various sites. Instead of linking to my e-mail address, the contact links on my sites will point instead...

Testing a Hurm.com Contact Form

I've had the same e-mail address for years, and the fact that it's plastered all over the web (in web pages, comments, message boards, etc.) is certainly a healthy contributor to my daily e-mail spam. But, better late than never:...

Hurm.com News Feed Index

New host for Hurm.com

Hurm.com is now live on its new web site host server. I liked the old host just fine, but these new guys offer all the same bells & whistles, plus a bit more for a bit cheaper. Propigation throughout the...

More spam-posts!

I just finished deleting a few hundred spam-posts. Grrr! There were 1 - 4 spam-comments posted to EVERY Nowheresville article. They all followed the same pattern, so they were obviously from the same source, regardless of what the variety of...

Webdesign added to portfolio

I own TheFourthWall.com, and although it appears to be an entertainment review site it's actually a Web development portfolio piece. Today I added it to my online portfolio, at www.hurm.com/studio/....

More spam coming in

I woke up to find 12 more comment-spams today. Although my most recent anti-comment-spam technique seemed to be doing the trick, I wonder if I need to change the special hidden value every so often?...

Another tactic to fight comments-spam

Looks like MT-Blacklist wasn't working. Unfortunately, I'm about to go on a trip and can't spend a lot of time researching/implementing a replacement, but the one I found here looks promising. The new tactic is that a hidden value needs...

Comment-spam still coming

I mentioned yesterday that I had implemented a new anti-spam plugin. It doesn't seem to be working very well. I just had to remove 8 new spams. But, I'm still learning how to use the tool, so we'll see how...

Fighting comment-spam

A lot of pharmaceutical and porn services have auto-targeted my site, and I have to delete anywhere up to five spams from my comments section every day. Hopefully the MT-Blacklist plugin I installed will help thwart those spammers....

More Feature Price Auto-billing

Feature Price's servers seem to be auto-billing anyone who didn't actively switch to a separate web hosting service. When I put in a billing-help request to them with my old account information, they reactivated my account and tried to bill...

More Feature Price Shenanigans

My credit card recently expired, and a new one was issued to me. The new had a new number, for "security reasons" as my credit card company said, and this annoyed me. What about whatever automated payments that I had...

Feature Price, again

Yep, it's true. Feature Price has returned. (Thanks to Jonathan for pointing this out.) Let's see if I can get that refund I've been trying to collect for most of the past year. I've already sent in a request for...

Updating My Online Portfolio

I've been thinking for a while that I should update my online portfolio. I almost did it a few hours ago, but then I fell asleep on the couch. :] I woke up and almost went to bed, but decided...

Feature Price Finale

Maybe you're already familiar with my Feature Price problems, and how they screwed me out of about 300 bucks and stole another 200 dollars or so from me. In summary, they reneged on their services, overcharged me, and went out...

Feature Price Dispute Update

My credit card company got back to me about my dispute against my ex-web host, Feature Price. They said the charges for "Feature Prize never went through, and they were closing the dispute. Oh no!...

Feature Price Sucks

Once upon a time I used to use a host called Feature Price. I did quite a bit of research before switching my sites to them, and was very pleased with what I saw. That was a few years ago,...

Hurm.com Facelift

Well, I finally started doing updating the look of the “Hurm.com network.” The only page changed thus far is the index of www.hurm.com, and next up is the Hurm Studio area (which will pretty much just become a personal portfolio...

Nowheresville.org

I finally decided to begin the last stage of abandoning my old host. Nowheresville.org now points to www.hurm.com/nowheresville/, and it looks like it's already started resolving properly....

Categorizing These Articles

I've begun working on categorizing the articles you'll find here. Expect to see those categories in effect soon, with each article having the category attached to its listing in addition to the ability to seach by category. Not all categories...

Hurm.com Forums

I set up a new forum system last night. You can visit it at either www.hurm.com/forums or forums.hurm.com, but please keep in mind it's not properly skinned yet. It uses the phpbb message board system, and for all intents and...

Hurm.com is Working Again

I seem to have an abnormally high amount of web hosting problems, and I really don't know why. Whatever the case, Hurm.com seems to have stabilized. The site is up, the publishing system works, and I'm not having trouble accessing...

Hurm.com

This is a test of the new Hurm.com publishing system. I'm in the middle of migrating some old articles form my Nowheresville.org personal blog and half-heartedly-started TheFourthWall.com. Some links and categories may not be updated right away....

Hurm.com e-mail troubles

I've been having a hard time getting my hurm.com e-mail fixed--it's been down since November 1st. In my most recent e-mail to the hosting company I finally told them I'll need it completely fixed by tomorrow, other wise I'll have...

Network menu added

The Hurm.com Network dropdown menu block has been added to every page template. Everything seems to be working smoothly—I don't know what I was worried about, we all know creating Web pages always goes right the first time. ;}...
