So, I've been watching the registrations on and find it interesting the countries that I'm seeing there. It has started being used in Argentina, the Philippines, Austria,  Nigeria, and the UK, apart from Canada and the USA.  The consistent story I hear with most users is that they're moving from an old/slow/bad host to something newer [...]

Adventures in VPS Land

By | February 17th, 2016|Blog|2 Comments

So, 24 hours of using Virpus, and here's my review. I'll be frank here, I use Ramnode, love Ramnode, and have nothing but good things to say about them. I also use Cirrus Tech to host a Windows VPS. But I'm not one to put all of my eggs in one basket, especially with so [...]

Made some changes to TransferMyEmail yesterday and today - basically I rewrote the parsing routine for folder structure and output of checkboxes. This was needed because originally I had been using "INBOX" as the root folder, which worked to a certain extent, but then had some feedback from Germany, where I found out "POSTEINGANG" could be used [...]

I have this social aggregation project I've been working on called AfterGlow, and it's not without its challenges, but tonight I did some work on it on a few areas that have been insufficient up until now. Instagram's API supports pagination, so I added support for that - full support too, so it will continue [...]

WordPress Plugin: PDFs Open in New Tab

By | January 31st, 2016|Plugins|0 Comments

I had a client recently where I had to import over 150 pages into their site in order to get the moved over to WordPress. I didn't have access to the database as it was a proprietary CMS they were using, so I ended up having to use HTTrack to take an offsite copy of [...]

How to transfer email accounts and messages between servers?

By | January 9th, 2016|Blog|0 Comments

Moving emails to your new server should be relatively easy - if you want to transfer your email messages from one server to another, you can now do this with only your login details. No FTP transfers needed, and you don't need to drag and drop between accounts in your mail program. It utilizes the IMAP [...]

PHP Best Practices

By | December 9th, 2015|Blog|0 Comments

You know the worst part about focusing on function over form, and working mostly on your own? You neglect to make sure that your coding style is uniform, that you're following best practices, and that your code is properly SPACED and INDENTED (one tab per level). A lot of times I don't have to go [...]

IMAP Migration PHP Script v2

By | November 9th, 2015|Projects|2 Comments

A few things have changed since the last time I posted the IMAP migration script, and my wishlist of features is almost complete. Instead of a single file that you have to manually specify variables in, you now have fillable form that uses to send variables to another file (called process.php), which handles the [...]

WordPress Variable Monitoring Script

By | October 9th, 2015|WordPress|0 Comments

I ran into an issue with WP E-commerce recently where the shipping options appeared to be unchecked every day that we went to go and look at them. Turns out it was a line in one of the shipping files that reset the shipping array to just "shipwire" which made it appear as if someone [...]

This is a throwback to last year; I was watching TV with my oldest son when I heard the familiar jingle of an email on my phone, or my smartwatch, or both. It was a client - as usual - after hours, wanting a quick response. I ran downstairs and told him to finish his [...]
