Sent to me by a friend, and definitely made me chuckle.
Things I like about Houston:
- Elevated driveways to help prevent local flooding
- Road labels and signs painted on the road itself
- EZ-TAG also integrates a real-time traffic monitoring system
- Every day is bright and sunny
Things I don’t like about Houston:
- When it rains, it rains
- Elevated driveways are like small mountains to my car
- Traffic. 🙁
- Traffic. No, really, it’s terrible
Oops, Cheap Webhosting = Cheap Service
We had a short outage yesterday because Dreamhost, our webhost, had a short outage because they had a filer down (which keeps our files nice and fresh for serving!) – they initially promised 30 minutes or so of downtime, but that quickly ballooned to over 7 hours as they were chasing down the problem. Click here to read more, and see the comments to understand why Dreamhost web hosting is so cheap!
Italics Gone Wild!
If you’re using a WordPress powered site, and you make a post, and a problem appears and everything goes italics , check your <em> and </em> tags in the HTML post editor, not the visual editor. Chances are that you were using the visual editor and were typing in italics, and the editor borked and didn’t close the tags correctly. Just take out the extra tags and your website will go back to normal. Usually, on my sites they like to just suddenly go <em></em> at the end for no reason. To make sure this doesn’t happen again, go to your administration panel, then under “Settings” -> “Writing” and check the box labeled ” WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically”. I found this after Googling “wordpress sidebad italics” which brought me to this page, which explained it all to me. Thanks, Google!
