I had to fix some, for lack of a better term, cyber-vandalism that has been causing some issues. I call it “vandalism” because it essentially does as much good as spray painting your advertisements on bridges and walls in the alleyways. At any rate, the consequences can mean a lot as far as Google goes, let alone the extra cruft in the database.
This has been a good exercise in preparing to move, however. It should not have taken me so long to find the issue and plug it up, so at least by moving the site where I have the control to see what is going on, perhaps such things will be more obvious when they occur. At any rate, if I have to do all of the work troubleshooting issues, I might as well have the server rights to do it correctly. I did make a mistake that added about an hour to the process, however, and so I can now look out for that mistake in the future.
Meanwhile, if you have not seen it yet, I’ve been giving out some pointer to “A Lesson in Failure- The Rise of the Mars Candy Company“. It’s a business article, but it applies to the Christian walk (or any other endeavor worth doing) as well. Sometimes, we are told that doing the same thing over and over and expecting the same results is the definition of insanity, but we should temper that sentiment that anything worth doing is not going to be easy.
Remember, one of the Seven Laws of Success was perseverance, aka “stick-to-it-iveness”. I certainly had to keep that in mind when cleaning up the website. 🙂
