Oasis is back up again. Figure it's easier for me to post something new so you know rather than having to sort it out...
... we're back up and running.
Site appears to be back, but I never heard from adrian that he fixed it (which usually happens), so good chance it broke itself and then fixed itself, which means very likely it will break itself again...
Looks like we're back?
The journal I wrote for today is about my coming out story, so in case anyone's interested, it is here:
I am writing a daily essay in 2013 and posting it to my website at jeffwalsh.com.
It's some personal stuff that I haven't tended to share before. So, if that interests you, here is the intro post describing the project and, from there, you can read three more essays that have been posted so far...
Since YouTube changed its code, and no longer supports the embed method we used to use, I added a new tag to the site to support the iframe tag. I know Adrian initially didn't want to add iframe, but I know people like embedding videos.
So, to use this:
1. Click Share.
2. Click Embed.
Jeff, Gangnam Style!
Oasis is 17 years old today!
One more year, and I can sleep with it legally!
As part of my hard drive crash that happened last week, I was retrieving my video of Camille Paglia on Politically Correct from YouTube, which you can watch here:
We did not move hosts this weekend as planned, as there is some coordination required in switching the DNS to point to the new servers (so that our URL knows how to find the site content, in non-geek) in a way to minimize downtime as much as possible.
Adrian did tweak some code for the new site to make us run more efficiently, just waiting for things to line up with his schedule and others so they can have the site down for as short a period as possible.
So, looks like the site is back up.
Bad timing, as we missed journals about:
- OMG, I had a great time at Pride
- I wish I could be at Pride
- I went to pride but didn't feel an unorganized group of thousands of people represented me as a person
But feel free to add them now! ;-)
Hmm, I'm not seeing any major dust-ups, sexting scandals or site crashes, so that's a good sign...
I'm off on vacation tomorrow, and gone all next week.
I'm going to Elder Price's favorite place:
Anyway, fight nice, hopefully the site stays up and running (my being available has little effect in bringing it back up anyway), and I'll see ya'll next weekend!
Since we seem to have a lot of people in a state of longing, crossroads, and coming out and wanting more from things that aren't going to offer it, here's my go-to song for that feeling:
I'm unclear about the weird riff she adds in the middle about "You want to hit me, boy!" etc., heh.
