If Masked's detailed logo's were 80's inspired then where does my effort come from?  Did they have computers in the 40's?  Tongue

Anyone ever hosted their own website?  It sounds appealing, I'm just not sure it's worth all the worries about stability, backups, troubleshooting etc.

Hmm.  Just typing that makes me think it's better to pay someone a small fee and let them have all those worries.  BunnyMonkey!

I guess you mean running your own server ?

I wouldn't even consider it for a website.

Maybe for a multiplayer game.  But it's a big commitment guaranteeing Uptime.

Well it's on pretty much 24/7 now, but like I say I don't want the hassles that go with hosting.  For a start I don't know enough about it to tackle any problems that would inevitably arise.  Tongue

I've just found out I can stick Wordpress on it though so I'll develop the new site locally and source a proper host when it's all done.

And now you've mentioned it I might dabble in a bit of online highscore code too....just for fun.

You'd also want decent upload speed on your home connection, and you'd be annoyed if you were getting a lot of traffic and it was slowing down your browsing.

Got 2 lovely new 2TB dives fitted to my NAS now Smiley ....how did I ever manage with 250Gb for years.  Tongue

Anyway with everything copied over I can now install Wordpress and have a bit of a play with that at building a new site.  Got to make good use of these Easter holidays.   Kang-a-roo!

Yeah, I miss the days where a holiday could actually be a break and not more time on work related projects Tongue Have a good 'un anyway mate! Smiley

As for your 250gb woes, my previous PC only had a 30gb hard drive, times were tough lol.

That's ace. Smiley  You're a bit of a coding whiz and website expert though so hopefully this novice will manage!  Tongue

And as you posted that yesterday and yet say you did it on your "Easter hols" I also deduce that you get more holidays than me!  Smiley

EDIT:
Just noticed that if you click on your "Droid Assault Screenshots" post then the "Featured Post" text in the header is messed up.

It's all word press widgets and what not so I can't take any credit for it (and obviously therefore blame for the header bug which I did notice but haven't yet delved into the code for that bit). I'll probably move all the pages over to word press eventually.

And yeah we get either Friday and Monday or Monday and Tuesday off for Easter but I doubt I get more holiday than you as if I don't go in I don't get paid!

Woah.  I'd refuse to holiday if I didn't get paid for it Smiley  Friday and Monday off for us.  Got family stopping here now so doubt I'll make much progress.

Got mySQL, mySQL Admin and Wordpress installed earlier though so I'm ready to go and we have another long weekend next week for some reason or other.

Finally had a chance to play with Wordpress and I can see why everyone uses it now.  The control panel and editors are great.

Now to find a theme I like to use as a template and modify to suit my needs.  Even though I've never used php before the code looks fairly understandable for the minor tweaks I'll need to make....and at least I'm just doing this on a local server so if it goes tits up nobody else gets to see it!  Grin
