I got to sleep at 2am last night. I found that there were problems with many files transferred and had to do many of them again unfortunately. I continued working on the gallery at 7am this morning. As of 8:41am the HOG Golf Photo Gallery is up and running. Let’s test it out:
I also deleted thousands of unnecessary files and tables in the database. The database alone was cleared of over 50,000 “temporary” tables or files. This should help the gallery run quicker, as should my new dedicated server.
Next and (hopefully) final fix, the rotating banner in the header.
The core of HOG’s server move is done. The template and all text/posts are good to go. Now for the big PITA, the gallery. I started transferring the files to the gallery about 15 hours ago and they’re still going…
Oh man if you only knew how fried my brain is. I may have one brain cell left… HOG is back!
I don’t have time to write, I have more stuff to fix. But I’m glad to see the core of HOG is back online with the new server!
Seve Ballesteros is improving, which is a really good thing. He’s slated to leave intensive care next week following three brain surgeries.
Great. All four days of the British Open will be aired on ESPN starting in 2010. First the Masters and now the British. Isn’t anything sacred? I have the same fears I’ve always had about ESPN doing golf. I call it “ESPNification.” I can’t wait to hear Chris Berman’s no-longer-funny sports names. I can hear it now…
Chris Berman: “Woop, woop. Mickelson just drained a putt. He’s one below par. Now let’s go to Roger Chocolate Malt-be.”
Stuart Scott: “Straight butta! Goosen is as cool as the other side of the pillow.”
Chris Berman: “Watch Tiger’s ball go rumblin’ bumblin’ stumblin’ deeep into the bottom of the cup.”
Stuart Scott: “Boo-yah! Tiger must be the bus driver cause he was takin’ Phil to school.”
Then Vijay Singh backs a wedge up…
Stuart Scott: “Yup yup. Call me big daddy when you back that thing up. Bubba Watson just hit a 342 yard drive. Wow! That as hardcore as the Wu-Tang Clan on steroids!”
I think I’m gonna be sick…
Note: All Scott and Berman quotes used here are REAL. Yes, even the stupid “one below par” quote… OMG. GAG ME.
