We’re Baaaack!
Mar 5th, 2014 by LOONEYEXECUTIVE

The StoryOk. Here’s the short story of The Looney Executive’s brief exit from the land of blogging.

At the beginning of February I attempted to install a new version of WordPress, along with updates for a few plugins too. By the way,  should plugin be hyphenated … as in “plug-in”?

The WordPress update went swimmingly well. And I just flew through the plugin updates. Everything was great! So damned easy right? Right? RIGHT?

Red DevilBut of course it was easy – at least until I logged in and tried to access the administrative functions of the blog. In other words, I couldn’t do a damned thing except log in. That was it. And I know this because I tried everything I knew to fix it.

“Everything I knew” actually meant very little. Because frankly I don’t know very much about WordPress. So after a couple of days struggling with this, having night terrors, uncontrollable sweating, and a haunting feeling that somebody was watching me, eventually I came to a tough conclusion.

I had to re-install the WordPress software from scratch!

This meant I’d lose all of my blog posts, comments, plugin settings … EVERYTHING! You see,  I’d not been backing up automatically like the normal  semi-intelligent person would be. But I did have one good idea. I copied all of my posts into a Word file before blowing up the current site.

Yea baby!

Fire in the hole!

Fire in the hole!

So I proceeded, quite delicately, with the re-installation of WordPress. The install was followed by a series of sudden and violent cyber explosions.

 

BABOOM!

BAM!

KAPOW!

Actually I had to re-install twice. So the explosions repeated themselves. But instead of rushing to start blogging again, I decided to focus on a couple of other pressing matters first. I also went through the process of planning out the next evolution of the blog. All of that – addressing other issues, planning the blog evolution – took a little time. And it was time well-spent.

The PenSo that brings me to today. In addition to writing new blog posts, over the next few weeks I’ll be adding many of the previous posts. While I’ll not re-post all of them, I will re-post the ones I have a particular fondness for.

 

So buckle up baby. The Looney Executive is baaaaaack in Cyberspace.

Whew Hoooo!

P.S.  For those of you with a nagging suspicion that unseen eyes are following you … enjoy.

 

 

 

 

We’ll Relaunch Soon!
Feb 1st, 2014 by LOONEYEXECUTIVE

The Looney ManSorry for the absence of our typical great Looney Executive content here. We recently made a slight boo boo.

In our attempt to upgrade our WordPress software and many plug-ins … we experienced a massive cyber explosion!

Now we have to re-do this thing. So please bear with us as we relaunch the site in the next few days. Your patience is so greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Blakey G. – The Looney Executive
