FlexSqueeze Latest Update Absolutely Rocks

I've been waiting for this update for quite awhile now so you can imagine how exited I was to receive an email saying it was available to download. Man, I doubt that anyone has ever seen me move so fast :laugh_tb: Yes, this blog is now running on the latest FlexSqueeze and I must say that the improvements Ryan's made has made it even easier to customize than before. He's even added a few things that were missing in the last version, mainly drop down menus and you now can have multiple squeeze pages on the same blog, one of the suggestions that I think I may have made on his forum. Seeing as how there are so many changes, more than I could possibly include in this post without boring the crap out of you, I thought I would put together a little video using my Total Screen Recorder Gold. The video will highlight some of the main changes and will also show you how easy it is to customize your blog. I have to admit that after installing the latest update I found that the color picker wasn't working. I immediately went onto Ryan's forum, yes he does give support, and after giving him access to my admin area he found out it was conflicting with one of my plugins, Digiprove, which I spoke about in the post telling you how all my posts were copyright protected. Once he tracked down the problem he had a solution for me that…

WassupBlog’s Posts Are Copyright Protected With Digiprove

Most people who know me, or have noticed my interaction with the fairer sex, would probably tell you that there's almost nothing I wouldn't do to please them! That being the case you're probably wondering what's taking me so long in answering a fair maiden's request that was placed some seven days ago. That fair maiden was Colleen of Kennewick Real Estate who, in the post about Speeding Up Your Blog in order to keep Google and your readers happy, asked the following; On an unrelated note Sire, a blog entry from you about the Digiprove you are using might be a good topic. Until now, I’ve never seen it nor heard of it. Just a thought, as I haven’t seen anything written on it, or other ways to protect against content theft. Might be a good topic. For those of you who don't know Colleen, she and her husband Joe are in the Real Estate game and have many wonderful properties for sale, including this one at West Pasco Washington which has stunning views. Anyway Colleen, sorry for the delay but you know what they say, better late than never and I can only hope that it was worth the wait. It all came about last December when some moron decided to steal a whole heap of my posts which eventuated in my post about stolen content, and then a followup post on the final outcome. I would recommend that post to anyone who would like to know what to do…

The Need For Speed Computer Style

In my last post I talked about some measures that I've taken to speed up my WordPress blog and while this is something I have to do every now and again I'm lucky enough not to have to worry about my PC. I used to worry about it some time back when I used to take ages deleting old files and stuff in order to get the old gal to go a little faster but now I've got a little utility to do it for me. The program I use is called TuneUp Utilities and I've set it up to scan my computer every Friday. So, every Friday at 5.15 pm it searches the hard drive and corrects any registry problems, removes invalid shortcuts, frees up disk space and optimizes hard disk performance.  As you can see from the following image of the start page although my PC is fully optimized I have one problem that threatens my overall computer health. Clicking on the link tells me that I haven't checked the hard drive for errors over the last three months and that I should check it for errors using Tuneup Disk Doctor which it's now doing as I write this post. I admit it, I've been slack because although it does a rudimentary cleanup of the system during it's weekly checkup I do need to manually optimize it occasionally just so as to make sure it doesn't delete files that I still need. What I like most about it is it's…
