holy shit man, i’m finally back! yesssssssssssssssss.
needless to say, this past week has been pretty crappy as far as having the webserver tank’n hard, and then scrambling around trying to get a copy of the old database and figure out a way to get it imported into wordpress — the entire process has been a gigantic pain the ass, mang.
i still almost can’t believe i managed to squeeze out over 8 years on the old server, though… not to mention sticking around on coldfusion for the past decade… seriously, feel like i should get some kinda medal or something… very retro of me, or really stupid — take your pick. heh.
anwyho, here’s my first WP theme, which i created from scratch this past week… it’s a child-theme of twentyfourteen, with a lot of stuff i removed along the way since i just want it simple, basic, and clean — but still foostyle’n… the only thing i’m really missing right now is my old ajax-comments that i’ve had and been using on my old site for years. *sigh*
a special thanks!
i have to give a major shoutout to both ron & brad, who have helped me out so much this past week getting my site back online… ron had to physically get his hands on the old server, then recover the data/database from the drives, setup a new MS SQL database to import, then export it, and then import it into a new MySQL database… and brad wrote a slick PHP script to take the data from MySQL (port of my old db) and write it into XML files (WXR format) that i could then import back into wordpress.
seriously, what a colossal pain in the ass.
i’m gonna drink myself silly this weekend, mang.
