So I setup a WordPress site devoted to Asus products, wide open for someone to take over and run with…

Ready Made Site, Start editing! Click the image.

…and like most of the stuff I do here, it hasn’t been accessed, hasn’t had a registration and hasn’t even been defaced! (no, I am not asking for it to be hacked)

However folks this is a free, pre-built, but completely edititable site available to the first Asus fan that shows up to register and take over. Registration gets you admin rights and that means you can play away with themes, appearance and content.

So someone show some initiative and help relieve me of my conundrum, which is, do I just dump this virtual server? The answer should be no, but, after a week, I am having my doubts…the site is here!

In a blatant attempt to use greed to attract folks we a giving away a cell phone!

Jpeg
Wow! It’s Crap!

 

Update: 09/11/2015 – Obviously this fabulous prize didn’t work, so I am suspending this contest, in hopes that someone out there will remove their head from their ass and at least try out the demo sites.

Don’t get too excited there folks. It is an absolutely crappy, AT&T, Go Phone, flip phone. But, on the other hand, since it is rather not  marketable, even if it is new, but used for about a month and a half, it is still a cell phone you can give to your kid or dog, or your aunt from the boonies who does not do Internet.

So here are the rules.

  • Either register here and ask for a permanent sub-domain, OR use the free demo sites available to try out the site and create a nifty site and impress me.
  • You can use ANY of the demo sites available. But I am not going to provide you the links to them, since those sites have been posted here numerous times. (time to learn/search)
  • Contest is only open to folks living in the USA.

I am rather looking forward to folks using thos demo sites and fighting it out. There are ways to keep folks off “your” demo site and that is perfectly fair.  First person with a decent site will win. Post any crap, don’t do any editing, don’t create any posts and the contest will restart next week.

You have until Friday night 04Sept2015, at 2300 (11:00pm) CDT to do something.

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.
