Weekend Personal Finance Links

Written by

Much of my day slipped away when a MonaVie distributor decided to threaten to physically harm me over at my website explaining how MonaVie is a scam. I spent a little too much time trying to show him how he's Brainwashed by MonaVie. This process is usually a lot quicker, but my new laptop seems to be possessed. The "6" key stays depressed at random times, making typing a sentence a difficult process. An external keyboard does help, but it's still not the same.

So hopefully, early this week, I will have my laptop serviced by Dell for the third time in two weeks. The earlier they can schedule me in, the earlier I can start being fully productive again. So let's just jump to the links with no further delay:

  1. In spite of a few speed bumps, the migration was still a lot better than I had feared – but, yes, a single place to go to for a migration guide would have been nice. There’s lot of information out there, but at times the sources conflict with each other :) In the end, all my articles were in place, associated with the correct author, including all of the comments. All plug-ins were working correctly (other than WP Stats – and I just needed to go to WordPress.com and add the new domain).

    I think the most important thing is to make sure you have the time to do things correctly – with a lot of wiggle room to fail. It took a few attempts for me to get it right, but I wasn’t working against any sort of deadline (since only about 5 people in the entire world knew about the name change), so I had time to play with. Heck, I had enough time left over to create the masterpiece of a logo I have. (Yes, I’m being sarcastic … graphic design is NOT my strong suit). Having a bit of an understanding of MySql also made it easier.

    And don’t sell yourself short – you were quite helpful in the process.

    I’ll refrain from making any snide remarks about your Windows-based laptop. :)

    If you installed MacOS or Linux on it, the same demon would strike. It’s a hardware issue.

    I’ve still had a much easier time with my laptop than I had with the new iPod Touch I bought a year ago. The “Genius” Bar finally quit and said, “We’ll just give you a new one, this one is beyond hope.”

  3. Hardware. Sure. Keep drinking Uncle Bill’s Kool-Aid.

    Do you make a habit of traveling with large electromagnets on your person? That couldn’t definitely explain computer problems. We have a guy in the office who can zap a computer from 20 paces, just by looking at it.

    My computer science degree (where none of Bill’s computers were available) comes in handy here.

    How did the guy power his electromagnetics?

  5. I must check out Kosmo’s new site. And I must hear more about the Monavie incident. A Catan reunion is at hand, given I haven’t been beaten in months.

  6. Kosmo’s logo is awesome. I like the new site. It looks great man given you did it all. :) I always get my husband to do that kind of work…

  7. You actually like the logo? I’ve had surprisingly good feedback for it. It did take my wife a moment to realize that the background is just our kitchen table :) Maybe sometimes simpler is better.
