It’s Official I’m now 63

Filed under: General — Connie @ 3:31 am

At 12:00 PM (2400) CST I lived to be 63. Really amazing to me. Nearly all of my Uncles died in their 50s. My Dad did live until his early 90s.

Anyway I just wanted to rejoice in the fact I had lived another year.

Take Care Using .htaccess

Filed under: Htaccess,SEO General — Connie @ 11:13 am

A simple error in the file, can cause you problems. A couple of weeks ago I uploaded a new .htaccess to Condells and shut the site down for a day. I didn’t check after uploading it. All traffic for about a 30 hour period got a 500 internal server error. (more…)
