Third time's the charm

2013-04-09T00:29:27.225+03:00

After minus21grams.baywords.com (whose customization features are virtually non-existent and uptime leaves a lot to be desired)andm21grams.wordpress.com (which IMHO was pretty decent in every aspect but unfortunately caught the attention of “concerned citizens”),it's time for yet another effort:Introducing the new, and from now on primary, blog minus21grams.netHip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip hooray!...(awkward silence)What, no applause?...(moderate booing)Are these ironic cheers I'm hearing? How dare you? Don't forget, I know who YOU are. You'll be dealt with accordingly :PSeriously now, the *new* -and greatly improved if I may add- blog has been up and running for almost 3 weeks now.That's right folks, opening day was April's first, I fool you not.Alas, judging by the traffic statistics I'm reading [3 weeks' data should be sufficient to draw some conclusions], most of you are unaware of its existence.Numbers don't lie: this old, roughly designed blogger hosted blog gets 5 times the visitors in comparison :(in·con·ceiv·able!Maybe you don't pay much [correction: ANY] attention to the Twitter messages I'm leaving...They're right in front of you, you know... Really hard to miss...You have to be blind NOT to notice them!Try clicking one of these for a change and you'll be nicely surprised (or so I'd like to think)Where were we? Oh yes. Time to update those bookmarks/favourites of yours and drop by the new place.I insist. Otherwise I'll be offended. Don't ruin my mood please, I'm known for having a notorious temper. Do you really want to put your life in jeopardy over this? :PRight.Here's a somewhat more detailed description:After the unpleasant surprise/traumatic experience I had with the free hosted WordPress blog, I figured “What the Hell, let's do it properly this time”.And by properly I mean a paid hosting service.Thanks to some very eager people, members of a domestic tech forum/community, I got valuable information and guidance as well as a few recommendations.Based on those facts, I registered my own domain [Cost: $13,98 - valid for 2 years] then bought a “starter pack” from a (local) web hosting provider [Cost: €44,98 annually]The idea of spending money on something other than CDs or tickets doesn't appeal to me at all.I did, however, weigh my options carefully prior to making such a decision; unless something totally unexpected -meaning catastrophic- happens, this is the last time you'll ever hear me complaining about web site expenses.Blah, blah, blah. Spare us the details and GET TO THE POINT!How is it different?Well, first and foremost I will no longer see any of those “we have received a complain regarding your blog, remove the content in question or else...” notices.Peace of mind at last. That is not to say links won't get reported though. But at least the prospect of being shut down just because some wanker got up on the wrong side of bed will be nothing but a distant memory.So, the #1 difference is independence.Followed closely by flexibility.The advantages of running your own domain are endless.You can start a site from scratch, pick a theme/template out of thousands and customize it and so on.Sounds cliché I know, but “the sky is the limit”. Complete freedom to do whatever you set your mind to. That of course includes the possibility of messing it entirely but that's another story...All those plugins I used to see but couldn't use due to restrictions, are now at my disposal.One of the first ones I implemented involves a decent rating system using a scale from 1 to 10 rather than the standard, insufficient 5-stars.It allows you to vote for each album, very handy considering most visitors don't usually care to comment.[Just go easy with that, I noticed high scores -9s and 10s- on albums that IMHO don't deserve it]Which bring us to the process of leaving a comment.It's slightly different compared to blogspot and given there is no CAPTHCA code to insert, easier too.All you have to do after writing your message, is to tick a box confirming you're NOT a SPAM botCouldn't have been simpler.You [...]

Don't press the PANIC button yet!

1. The WordPress blog is temporarily suspended (NOT permanently deleted as some of you assumed)

2. Whoever decided to “deactivate” (that's the term they use) the blog, did so WITHOUT sending a notification, warning etc. beforehand.
Judging from the message in the dashboard, these people have absolutely NO IDEA what they're doing.
Have a look for yourselves and pay attention to the text within the red rectangle.
Now focus on the 2nd sentence mentioning “affiliate links promotion, get rich quick programs, banner ads”.
Hello, reality check here: The blog(s) is a) “Personal” and b) Strictly music related. 
Where exactly are those banners/get rich schemes/whatever to justify such claims? Do you see any Advertisements around? How about those annoying pop-ups redirecting to God knows what? Anything, ANYTHING AT ALL to indicate profit making?
NO, NO and hmmmmm NO!

3. Surely, it was a nasty surprise but there are ways to bypass these restrictions and get everything back running.
I admit I was a bit concerned the first few hours, I almost didn't enjoy last night's game - almost... Barcelona's stellar performance took my mind off it ENTIRELY ;)

4. I'm currently in the process of picking a web hosting service and settle this once and for all; I'll let you know as soon as possible.
In the meantime, all new CD-rips will be posted on the Baywords Blog
