The Next Evolution Of The Sensei

So, you might be wondering….where is EJ and what the heck has been going on with this site for the last week? Well, there were quite a few adventures and mishaps. Note: this may get a little technical at times, so don’t sweat it

Just after my transition period started (also known as the end of employment), my site went down (bad_httpd_conf issue). After more than 24 hours, I finally heard from tech support that the site was being copied to another server. Most everything was copied but there were still some fundamental pieces missing from the puzzle.

Also during the same time, there was an attempt to upgrade the installation (from MT4 to MT5). The installation failed and there has been little help in fixing the problem. This is when I decided to get the help of Todd “Big-La” Kelley to work his magic and help converted the site over to WordPress (while trying to keep as much intact as possible), which is why you see this new site before you. Here’s the lowdown:

1. All of the entries you see before you work now.

2. All podcasts are still available.

3. Radio Blogs (popups to play the tracks) are now gone (yes, all of them). I will try to resurrect all of the ones from 2010, but all of the other ones (from 2004-2009) I am sorry to say, are gone. I can resurrect them upon request, but no promises. (Update:  Radio Blog Club is now closed down so now I am afraid I am missing source code as well.  Until I can find it, Radio Blogs are on a hiatus.)

4. The “About EJ” and “In Real Time” tabs are now on the site. They’re both still being worked on. “About EJ” will be a mini-autobiography, while “In Real Time” will consist of near-real-time updates about what’s going on, including CBox (quick shout outs) and Twitter Thoughts (yep, I’m on Twitter also).

So, after 5 days, we’re back in business, but the site is still being worked on, so you’ll see some changes, but steps are being taken so this issue never happens again. My apologies for this downtime, and major major props for Big La for pulling it together. Any comments or suggestions? Feel free to let me know.

Take it light.

      Thanks, I still need to do a little work on it….I’m used to having more things on a web page. So glad that WP is built from PHP. That’s a huge plus.

    Glad you’re back. I’m on MT too and want to move to WordPress so bad, but too scared about losing content.

    Man, i didn’t think you were gonna relaunch that quick. Excellent. The Sensei is back in business!

    Just another example of how you can’t keep the “PodFather” down for long. Sorry about your troubles my friend, but very glad to see the site back up and running.

      Thanks, Rob. I’m not that good with design on the front end, but I’m vibing to it.
