B&P Turns 15

Today, March 31, marks the 15th anniversary of the start of Bits & Pieces.  It was on this date in 2002 that I started B&P over on Blogger.  After a short while, I moved to a self-hosted WordPress blog.  

It has been a major part of my life these last 15 years.  And I’m […]

Website Problems

Bits & Pieces was down for about an hour on Friday afternoon.  Visitors (and staff) were getting an ‘Error connecting to the database” message.  I called the ISP and they managed to get the site back online but they appear to have disabled all of the plugins. Apparently, there was a conflict with at […]

Website Maintenance

We’re in the process of trying to resolve an issue with people not being able to reach Bits & Pieces.  The site may be down for a while today.  It involves temporarily changing the domain URL and changing it back. 

Sorry for the inconvenience.  

Update:  The first part of the update has completed […]

Blogging Oops!

I have a separate tab in my browser where I compose Link Dumps.  As the day or days go by I add links to that post in that tab.  Sometimes I use things that people have sent me.  After I add a link to the post I usually delete their email so I don’t increase my […]

Bits of Wisdom Technical Problems

For some reason, our website Bits of Wisdom is banning some readers.  This happened a couple of weeks ago too.  It even banned me.  We got it straightened out but it has creeped up again. We’ll try to get to the bottom of why this is happening and get it straightened out.  

We’re […]

Technical Difficulties…

I’ve has two people contact me that have received the following error when they go to bitsandpieces.us :

    Warning: Class __PHP_Incomplete_Class has no unserializer in /home/content/p3pnexwpnas05_data02/01/2463101/html/wp-content/object-cache.php on line 520

I’m not a coder so I’m not sure what’s going on here. I tried Googling it but that didn’t help.

Anyone have any ideas?

Ratings plugin update

I deleted the ratings plugin and re-installed it from scratch.  I didn’t lose the previous data (ratings) as I was led to believe would happen.  I was also unable to reproduce the error it was generating the last couple of days.  So, hopefully, no one else will have that problem either. 

Please let me […]

Technical Difficulties

We’re experiencing technical difficulties with our ratings plugin.  This plugin allows you to rate posts and comments.  A few people (just 2 or 3 have contacted me) about getting an error when trying to access B&P.  It works fine for me unless I use an Incognito window, then I get the error. 

The […]

B&P Turns 14

It was fourteen years ago yesterday that the very first post appeared on Bits & Pieces.  It’s been a wild and crazy ride at times.  I’ve posted some interesting, weird and funny things along the way… many of which you’ve contributed.  Thank you!

Donations

I’ve been having some issues with the website and posting to it.  I spent a few hours troubleshooting it Saturday and Sunday.  During these tests I changed the theme briefly and disabled all the plugins as part of the testing. 

I haven’t really solved the issues I was having, but I did manage […]
