So you Think this whole WordPress Blog Stuff is Hard to Learn? (Video)

viral-real-estate-videoSo you are hesitant to even try out the demo servers? What in-the-hell is wrong with you? Can you type? Can you point and click? Can you copy and paste?

Of course you can, so watch the video below as I use demo site 1 and set up a WordPress site….

 

if you are watching the video…we need a super cool header image! So….etc,etc….the video should be self expanatory, unless you are brain dead!

Because I think even the non-particpants who visit this site need to know…a short Video on the K480 Keyboard!

Yes, most of the folks who visit this site never do a damn thing on the internet, because they are content to post videos and images and “memes”.

So in keeping with that tradition is a video I am borrowing from my Tablets sites, where folks actually care about technology and nifty accessories……

Hey…there is another new video here!!

So you want to try out the demo sites but are still clueless? Watch the video below and although you will probably be forever clueless, you might someday thank me…after watching, click this link and test out the demo site. Keep in mind that the demo site may have reverted back to the install page, since I don’t want to use up 1 of only 3 demo sites on a fake blog. But if that is the case, simply run the install, keeping in mind that the database/username/password for the database is the same as the sub-domain name.

So you decided to run your own server on a virtual machine and need some security.

high-class-panasonic-video-camera-camcorderThis little video will show you just a few of the basic methods of killing off those annoying folks who constantly annoy your site.   It will also cement the fact in your tiny brain, that when it comes to crappy music Tim RULES! You will find that if you use a few basic tools that come with a basic VM install from Turnkey Linux Lamp Stack and your router and inside of your Apache server settings that you can keep a majority of dirtbags away from your site.

When it comes to killing IP’s feel free to kill entire blocks of addresses! Sure, you may be killing off a few visitors but on the other hand you are also keeping out the asshat who is determined to access up your server!

Bottom line is that you will need to check your logs daily and look for strange or wrong feeling comments and trackbacks on your site.

So watch the video, learn a little and perhaps avoid a situation that you don’t want to deal with. Not everything is covered here, but be aware learn, use Google to research and never give up!

I occasionally promote myself…because, well…I can. A short video on a script I edited…vLot

vlot2It finally occurred to me today that I simply do not promote the fantastical script that I edited the crap out of last year and made much better than it was.

The best part of this whole endeavor was that I offer my own edited version for free, just like the original! Sure, if you want to pay me to edit some more or set it up, I’ll happily take your money, but the bottom line is that this Car Dealership software works, is easy to edit and runs MUCH faster than any WordPress based theme/plugin type site.

So without further ado, I invite those interested in cars (or bikes, or tractors, or whatever the hell you are selling) to spend 7 minutes and watch….

What? You want to backup your server?

So once you learn how easy it is to run a Wordress server from a virtual machine you will begin to think, “Oh crap, how do I back this site up?” Of course you can use the UpdraftPlus plugin to back up the database, but…..you still worry. Well I do…so…of course I have created another less than Hollyweird quality video to show you just how easily this is accomplished.

So watch and learn and endure the crap music….

 

Bottom line is you will need a spare Hard drive and  USB Dock to send the data to. My backups take about 1-2 minutes using a Sabrent USB 3.0 dock and the original 80 gb drive that came with this PC.
