Site Maintenance (Start of Summer Edition)

Every once in a while I get a burr in my ass** to update the ol’ Recycle Bin, but time and again we always come back to one thing. Green is a must. Back to the green theme in just a moment.

Over the weekend I upgraded from WordPress 2.9.x to 3.3.x without any major incidents. There was a temporary issue with the Word Press console not being able to perform an automatic update due a WP_MEMORY_LIMIT issue.

I was receiving a “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of n bytes exhausted (tried to allocate x bytes)” error message. So after a few searches and jumping into a UNIX shell to edit a .php file, I was happily on my way. No worries at all. Anytime I get to play around in a shell, dusting off some vi skills, I call that a win.

At any rate, I’m hopeful that moving to WordPress 3.3.x is going to give me a little more flexibility in content, and allow Joshua (my 13 year old son) to post a little more frequently.

Mean Green
As mentioned at the top, since Calvert Games (AKA The Recycle Bin), various shades of green has always been the site’s calling card. It’s mantra if you will; screaming green.

As part of the overall upgrade I decided to finally upgrade my theme, which is Arjuna-X, v1.2.1. The latest version is 1.7.x, and Lord knows it looks better and has a ton more flexibility. I just have to get my green back!

I’ll have to do some moving and fixing in a couple of weeks; heading to FL in a couple of days for a much needed vacation. Between work, soccer, and other day-to-day stuff, I doubt I have much time to get this thing cracking.

Did I just Tweet
Son of a gun, Calvert Games has gotten just a wee bit modern. I decided to do the Tweet thing because I have the app on my Vita. Not sure what I will Tweet, or why anyone would want to follow me, but there you go.
