HOG server switch complete

Over the past couple of days I’ve been tweaking the site and finishing the transfer to the new service provider. HOG is now at 99% operation. There may be a couple of missing images or corrupt images so if you see anything odd let me know. When you transfer over 10,000 golf images from one server to another, the likelihood of some being corrupted is fairly high.

I HOPE this switch solves my issues and that I can get back to what I’d rather be doing, blogging about golf, doing golf course reviews and golf equipment reviews.

If you’ve contacted me in the last few days please try again

Since I moved servers, that meant my email was also down for 1-2 days. If you sent me an email in that period, it may be forever lost in the vastness of the digital wasteland. That email is now where those single socks you lose must go. So please contact me again if you haven’t gotten a response from me.


Web Site HELL

It has been 12 straight hours of hell for me. I just barely got HOG moved to another freaking service provider. My old “provider” shut me down with no warning for a 2nd time. Last time it was because HOG was eating too much server juice but they couldn’t tell me what exactly the cause was. This time they shut it down five minutes before the 18 hole playoff in today’s U.S. Open between Rocco Mediate and Tiger Woods.

I was planning on doing a live blog for those at work to follow the round, but this wrench hit me in square between the eyes.

So HOG is hobbled and working now on a new server. The gallery may take a couple of days to resurrect, since it has over 8000 images.

Now I need to get The Golf Space online… I decided to go with two more providers so that if HOG goes down it doesn’t take down The Golf Space and vice versa.

It is going to be a late night…

OH, and congratulations to Rocco Mediate for putting on a great performance and of course to Tiger for winning major #14.

Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith bet $1000 on a long drive

Written by: Tony Korologos | Sunday, June 8th, 2008

I managed to catch some great video during the final round of the Team Challenge today. Charles Barkley was giving Kenny Smith grief about his golf swing. So Kenny challenged Charles to a $1000 long drive bet. The winner would add the $1000 to the charities which were benefiting from the tournament.

Seeing Charles Barkley’s golf swing in person nearly made me fall over.
