My sites are down!

Account Suspended” is the WebHosting Pad response 

www.webhostingpad.com1096433650_320_240I have not gotten a response from them yet. It is 0630 here in Detroit. They are in C

hicago so we are close. I am mildly annoyed at this time and I am sure that will elevate as the day goes on if I can’t get any answers from them.

I hope I don’t get into the “blackhole” of support with them. I am really not in the mood for that fight now. They have been known to be quirky. READ MORE HERE – Hosting reviews

I will keep you updated as it progresses. But for now I am looking for another host!

My website has been fixed! Sorry it took so long!

I missed some major glitches in the main site. I apparently missed the link problems in my testing. But I be lieve I got the little bugger fixed and made some updates along the way.

The Library section has had some internal linkage updates to make it a bit easier to get around. The Garage section is still in works. It is almost done. But I am still working on it.

Stay tuned! BzeroB

The NEW BzeroB.com is up and online!

It still has some flaws but I have them in my sights

The NEW Bzerob.com

I now have my library up on site in order to make it mare accessible via small devices [ tablets and phones ] that was the intent behind the redo. While I am not a master at this by any means this redo is a quantum leap in accessibility, for me at least. It’s not like I am a high traffic item on the web.

But as a learning tool it is awesome. So if you are interested give the new sites a fly and see if they do what was intended. Work quicker and more efficiently. I still have some conversions to do, and some tweaking, so don’t get too annoyed if things go a bit sideways.

I am considering a small newsletter system. If you are interested let me know!

New Bzerob.com getting some bugs out

Along with some other site related issues

Site code / WordPress / Twitter / Google+

Right now I am plundering through the new code for the Bob’s Garage site. With some kick butt guitar by Frank Gambale on the stereo. Way soothing and motivating all at the same time.

I have spent a lot of time in the last couple of days debugging my NEW BzeroB.com site code. I came across some display issues on Android phones while I was testing it. So I have had to step back and revert to the basics. Getting cute doesn’t translate into a functional site on a small screen. Lesson learned! So I think I have it worked out and the links are way more usable now. It test good now!

Now I am on to the next segment of my sites. The Bob’s Garage rewrite. I have been at it for a couple of weeks now. On and off. Slowly it is evolving to a usable level. From the PC screen to a tablet and small phone. But I will get it done.

I will probably redo the LIBRARY site and bring it back onsite. But one disaster at a time! For now it will stay out on WordPress.

And speaking of WordPress… I have decided to NOT self host the WP sites. It was more of an admin issue than a WordPress issue. I can’t seem to keep them updated like I like to. The site hosted blogs are now disabled and here I am on the WordPress.com versions. And I am also going to say that once again I am buggering off of Twitter and Google+. I really suck at them and rather than look like a rank amateur I am going to let them ride for now. So it will be Facebook for me and my Garage. For now. I may attack them both later.

Stay Tuned! BZEROB

The NEW BzeroB.com is ready for launch!

It’s ready for prime time!

The new BzeroB.com portal section is coded and cleaned up for production. I know that it doesn’t mean a whole bunch to most of you but it is a learning triumph. And it is a giant leap in learning for me and Bootstrap3 with jQuery. And I am getting the hang of it. I am actually liking it.

It has been up for a bit as a test site and well tested on mobile. And it is slick and quick. Since most people use their mobile to access a site the first time the site is tuned for mobile first. So now it is on to the secondary section.

The main core of Bob’s Garage I have most of the code up and tested. And it is quicker too. With some new features. A bit of restructuring and I should be able to bring most of it all up this week. The car and clutter section may be a bit of a challenge but the new features and code should make it work way nice.

Check it out if you get a chance and let me know how you like it.

Stay Tuned! I am workin’ on it! This is one of my winter projects. I guess I should get a hobby or something!

Goodbye Twitter and Google+! I am signing off now

BzeroB has left the building!

I am not a real big Twitter fan and after a while of trying to make sense of it I have decided to bugger off. That goes for Google + too.

They really has no value to me. Twitter has become a plaything for way too many people for all the wrong reasons. And politicians are getting stupid on it.  And Google+ is really a stretch for me to get involved with. Serves me no useful purpose. So I have made the unilateral decision to not participate on Twitter and Google+.  Not that it will have any impact on all of our day to day lives but so what.

Consider yourself informed! BzeroB

Wanna take a poke at the NSA? Try the new Flagger browser addon

The seal of the U.S. National Security Agency....

If you are like me and are not real enchanted with the NSA watching your web traffic here is a little piece of software that will make them work a little harder. It was just a matter of time before there was some ways worked out to at least poke the NSA with the same technology that they are using to snoop on us.  It’s called FLAGGER. I have installed it and I am sure that  in a short while there will be some “complications” but until then I will participate. Read on!

It’s time to make some noise.

Flagger is a browser add-on that automatically puts red flag keywords (like bomb, Taliban and anthrax) into the web addresses you visit. Install Flagger and help us send a message: government surveillance has gone too far.

If you want more info on this cool browser add-on check out the video.
