Is the Scheduler Working?

Not sure why but the internal scheduler service that WordPress uses wasn’t working. No wonder why scheduled posts didn’t post accordingly. Also, all kinds of trackbacks and other links weren’t updated. As a starting point, I disabled a bunch of WP plugins. Doing so appears to have cleared the backlog of scheduled tasks. Now to […]

WordPress Annual Report for 2014

Here’s what Pulpconnection looked like from the WordPress’ annual report for 2014. Most of the stats are personally underwhelming, but hey, it’s not about the bass, right?

Because Ninja

With the advent of more top level domains, I’m changing up Pulpconnnection’s custom domain used for shortening links. In the past, I’ve used pulp.ly and pulpc.in, but now, I’m using pulp.ninja. Yes, .ninja is a valid domain. Yeah, yeah, this vanity domain is actually longer so it defeats the purpose of shortening links. But I […]

Expanding Outbrain’s Reach

Keep an eye out for babes on Pulpconnection. After reading this article about “Around the Web” recommendations and the mention of Outbrain.com, I got curious. I use Outbrain’s recommendations on Pulpconnection but had its scope limited to content only on my blog. For the time being, I expanded Outbrain’s recommendations to include other sites just to […]

New Years Site Cleaning

Over the end of December and beginning of January 2014, Pulpconnection has been getting hit hard. Not sure how or why but server resource allocation skyrocketed and stayed there for long periods of time. Because of this, Pulpconnection would be unavailable for periods of time. Even after server reboots, resources would be consumed once again […]
