It seems that IE and Firefox were not playing nicely with Chrome and, even though Chrome displayed the site exactly as I intended… IE and Firefox were way off. This issue should now be fixed.

I have been monitoring the server performance for the last several weeks (and experiencing it myself while surfing my own site) and it was not up to my standards. I previously attempted to enable APC to speed performance up and failed numerous times for various reasons, becoming frustrated in the process. Today, however, I thought I would give XCache a try with great success. It looks as though CPU usage dropped by around 50% while page rendering and crawl time also dropped by 50%. I am pretty happy with the [Continue Reading]

I have already been asked if  my previous post about shutting down the BBS/Forum section of the domain is an indication that all of my information or guides will also vanish. The answer? No! My decision to shutdown the forums is based on time administering and keeping a “General” technical support forum operational and clean. The less time I struggle with keeping up the forums, the more time I have to write content. Plain and simple. Thank you, kind reader, for your support over the last 12 years! You are appreciated!

The forum is currently shutdown. I wish to thank all of my members for their time and effort at making my community a clean and safe one, but the task of administrating a “General” technical support forum on my “personal” website was too great. It has been a great few years and I am sorry to let it go, but time has got the better of me recently. It makes me sad that I have to let a piece of my web site go with such great support of my [Continue Reading]

Tomorrow, June 18, 2011, I will be at the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds in Yreka, CA performing in an exhibition race in number “72” with other street cars in a series called “Run-What-U-Brung”. Unfortunately, last go around, I developed a cracked radiator on the vehicle, so I am just going to fill it up with water and see what happens.
