Not A Damned Thing To Report Here! No One Has Tried The Demo Sites in More Than a Month!

The only news here is that if you offer up some free hosting or even a place to test out and install WordPress/plug-ins, no one apparently gives a rats ass!

I have not had anyone try the demo sites in well over 45 days! That is rather scary, but it does tell me that the site here is secure enough to keep out the bad apples….

A Bit of News Here…First of All, it Appears that We May Have Been Hacked Thru One of The Plugins on the Site Here…

NewsObviously the children of the World continue to attack this site every now and then, for some misguided reason in their tiny little brains.

It is no big deal because the site is backed up everyday and can be restored in just a few minutes. Of course if they are looking for info, they are obviously beyond stupid, because there is absolutely nothing of consequence stored on this web server.

But be that as it may, I dumped a plugin that appeared to have some malicious code injected into it and I am continuing to search for the asshats attacking the server each night at roughly 8:30 pm. I have already identified 1 Chinese and 3 French IP addresses that are now blocked, but I am certain there are others.

That is pretty much it, except for someone did actually run an install on Demo Site 2, which I have since reset.

New Site Added! Stallons Used Car Blog!

NewsNow these folks have yet to set up their site, but I am hoping they will do something with it.

I have set them up with all the plugin’s they should have, but it is up to them whether or not they do anything with the site. You will notice they have their own domain name, so that means they are not stuck with a sub-domain and it is easily setup.

Obviously they have an advantage since they are friends of mine and they have a lot of personal access, but in truth, this stuff is pretty easy folks.

So take a peek at their empty site and check back in to see what they do with it!

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.
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!

We are still having network issues here. Cable comes and goes all day long.

Yep,Cable does suck!
Yep,Cable does suck!

I have no clue what the issue is. While it may simply be a connectivity issue such as a weak signal it is definitely not due to the equipment at my end.

The router and all associated connections are good. The actual cable modem passes a diagnostic, but the only cure seems to be unplugging the actual cable, which looks to be fine and re-plugging it in, then I get several hours of good connection.

The cable company claims there are no outages, but there are obviously issues.

I will keep everyone updated as soon as I have an answer.

Do you have any idea how cool it is to have your own web server? Well, when you buy new stuff, you get to create a server to write about it!

hot news
Click to see the site!

So because I run this server, I have decided to take over a demo site just to post about the super new Asus Z580CA 8 inch tablet I just bought the other day!

Since it isn’t here just yet, no need to panic, but the site will be similar to the one I created for the Asus X553SA laptop, a few months back!

Tomorrrow night demo site 3 will revert, as promised and whatever demo site is free too use, will once again take over as my posting/demo haven.

Of course if folks were actually trying out the demo sites I would be forced to simply wait….
