A few weeks ago I discovered something quite concerning. All of the images on my personal blog were no longer functioning. Every image automatically defaulted to the “Error 404 Page Not Found” argument.
I contacted my hosting provider for answers. Alas, none could be discerned. However, an even more startling revelation was uncovered.
The issue with the images is not new. According to the support technician, it has been present for well over a month as the original photographs were not even found in the hosting providers backups of the site.
Essentially this ‘image issue’ puts a spotlight on the unfortunate realisation that I do not update my personal blog (I am too focussed on Vamers and Vamers Store). If I did do so on a regular basis, I would have been well aware of the issue as it happened.
The last time I updated my blog in a personal capacity was 10 months ago. This is after I swore to update on a regular basis. Well, I did update… Just not my personal blog.
Over the last ten months I have been developing and dedicating resources to Vamers. I post weekly about anything and everything that interests me from a geek popular culture, video game and technology perspective. Hence the lack of posts here on my personal blog.
I still think about my personal blog and I am saddened that I have let it sink into cyber decay.
I can change this lull though. How long will this refreshed resolve last? Only time will tell.
Apple have changed the dock connector on the new iPhone 5. It is not that big of a deal.

I quite like the Lightning connector.
For the last two years I have enjoyed Uncapped and Unshaped Internet from MWEB. The only downside is that our line rental is still held with Telkom – an aspect I am currently in the process of changing. (more…)
