…Paper websites are the net’s history?

Paper Twitter

The web might be a computer based place, but many of the designs for the sites that you use daily started out as simple pen on paper drawings in a boardroom or bar napkin.

Deeplinking has gathered up some of these initial concepts sketches, and there’s something about seeing the roots of highly used sites laid out before you like a dinosaur skeleton that brings the beasts back down to reality.

…You can demo WordPress 2.5?

WordPress 2.5

The folks behind WordPress have just released a Demo Site of WordPress 2.5, and after playing around for a bit, I must say that I can’t wait for the changes to go live!

To see for yourself what these changes are all about, log in with Username: “admin” and Password: “demo” to give it a try.

(Don’t worry about messing things up, as they revert the site back to a fresh start every hour.)

…DYH is back?

I fought the server and the…server won; I fought the server and the…server won.

Google ServerUnfortunately, due to a “problem with the DNS records for didntyouhear.com” this site has been down for the past four days, and anyone who visited (myself included) was handed little more than a 500 Error page.

In addition to the site going down, this DNS error also knocked out my email server, so for everyone who sent me a kind (and much appreciated) email to let me know that the site was down, I want to say thanks, and let you know that your message just came though, so I apologize for my delayed response.

The good news is that the error is now fixed, and Didn’t You Hear will be returning with full force (and then some) on Monday; so if you’ve lost all hope, then please come back on Monday for a reminder of why you started to visit DYH in the first place.

    For any of you with blogs of your own out there, just remember: Backups are your friend. I try to backup as frequently as possible, but I still don’t do it enough, and all I could think of during this issue was, “Man, what if this error manages to clean out my site’s data as well”.

    Thankfully it didn’t, but the potential was definitely there, so remember: Backup, Backup, Backup.
