Art Attack Central

Fixing stuff, myself included…

WordPress + Blogger

Well… I managed to import my old Blogger Archives into WordPress. Now it’s a matter of going through all those, mostly older posts, replacing photos, and replacing missing links in some cases. If you see a post with “Designated driver, on the information highway.” at the bottom, it was originally posted on Blogger. Lots of “stuff” has disappeared since November 2001!

Exactly how old are you anyway?

I used to be really old; however, recently I went back in time and lost 30 years.

Lost 30 years? Huh, where did you lose it?

Somewhere between a rock and a hard place.


This might be you

Actually, I looked through all my images, and came up empty handed.  Afterwards, I searched high and low looking for you all over the house. I think I spotted you up in the lower hall transom. Is this you?

Reluctant Saint acquires higher power

Higher Power

Yeah, it’s me alright. I thought I saw you taking my picture. Why did you put me way up there?

So you could keep and eye on my comings and goings. You’re my “higher power.”

Ha, ha very funny. You don’t treat me like a higher power. Although, I suspect you need one. The reluctant saint acquires a higher power; sounds like a super power.


Reading Old Blogger Archives


I was trying to see if I can still post at Blogger i.e. The Testzone, and got caught up in the archives trying to fix broken links. It’s still possible to create a post, but it isn’t viewable, even though it says it’s published. I think it’s because of the nescessary php file at the root of Art Attack which enables use of a subdirectory for WordPress that is viewed as root.

Yesterday, you said you were going to look for a picture of me. Where is it?

Around the barn

Much time has NOT been spent over the last few years working on a new Art Attack Central. When I look back over years of archived posts, I  see a lot of talk about what’s going to happen. Looks like a lot of bla, bla, bla. Silly spell check kept trying to say black, and I almost ended up with, “bla, bla black sheep.” Humph, no wool here.

I think you’ve pulled the wool over your own eyes.

You’re supposed to ask questions; not make uncalled for statements.

Okay then, is this another attempt at “thoughtful word salad?” or has flossing your teeth become a virtue? 

Sounds like you’re googlewacking your brain, or is it my brain? You know, you’ve been around for a long time, and I’m beginning to wonder what you look like. Let me see if any of my images have a suggestion of you.


Every Once in a while…

Well… how many years go by? So why not post?

Yeah! thats it; start right off with the questions. I’m thinking of including a link to the Testzone on Art Attack Central.

It’s mostly very old archives. Why’s anybody gonna read them?

Glory days on the Tardis

I think it might be a semi organized record for me.

“Designated driver, on the information highway.”

Featherlight Box

Library/Media files not quite right. Will see if Featherlight works with a new image file.

Weird Cat

Ok all well with new file, including caption working. However, the images added at an earlier date have the wrong URLs. While the images are included in the posts, the images don’t function with Featherlight. hmmm…

Much todo about something

Blew the whole site away by changing the WordPress URL incorrectly. This was after moving all Art Attack files to a different directory. Couldn’t login to WordPress… All well now except featherlight box not working.

Why were you changing the WordPress URL?

Art Attack was so long in the tooth; I decided to just serve up WordPress and blog for now.

Freaking unbelievable

Probably spelled wrong. Well… hmm it’s 2016 who knew.

New what? New shoes? I’d like some new sandals.

Not that new.

“Designated driver, on the information highway.”

This or that?

Updating, and thinking all will be WordPress for CMS. Drupal is way more complex than I need, although  it’s great for a large commercial site.

How come?

All the sites I’ve designed over the years have faded away or downright disappeared.  I don’t know where art attack is headed right now; I don’t know what it’s going to become. Since I haven’t let it “fade away,” artattack needs to be redefined.

What about a blog?

I think I’m much too paranoid for blogging these days.

Of course I'm psychic!

Enabled ssh = moved to a different server. Both my sub-directories (drupal/wordpress) are slow as butter in winter. Especially slow in the admin. area. I’ve done the required to changes to update the host connection string in wp-config for wordpress and php.settings in drupal. Still no joy; I’m hoping it’s a 24 hour catch up thing, but I doubt it. Some small bit of code somewhere probably needs to be changed.

All because I wanted to play with drush via ssh in drupal.
