I F***ed Sh17 Up

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Alright, so I had a text message from Kanchi last night saying the site was fucked up.  I kinda ignored it because I had better things to do (like sleep.)

Turns out it really was screwed up.  I checked the stats for yesterday and at a certain point in the day it dropped from hundreds of visits an hour to almost none :\

I enabled Short-URLS for mediawiki on The Sh17’s Private Project Wiki, but accidentally messed up the .htaccess file at the root of the site.  It was redirecting almost all traffic (that wasn’t a real file) to the wiki for it to handle.  So if you visited thesh17 dot com in the evening yesterday, you probably got some kind of authentication error.   Sorry about that but everything should be fixed now.

Actually. Everythings half okay.   You guys shouldn’t notice anything though.  Leave a comment if you have any problems!

Sh17y Maintenance VI and Top 5 Posts

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

  • Installed the WP-Super-Cache plugin for WordPress.    It’s a replacement for WP-Cache that comes with WordPress.    It’s supposedly a lot faster and so far seems like a good alternative especially since it supports gzip.
  • Changed the sitemaps.xml file around a little bit.  It no longer includes any Category or Archives type pages; Only actual posts and static pages.  This should stop google (and other search engines) from sending people to a category page instead of straight to the post they were looking for.
  • I did alot of cleaning of code and such that you people won’t notice, but it’s there anyway.   Hopefully it’ll speed things up a little bit.

Top 5 Posts on www.thesh17.com according to traffic:

  1.  40,000 Blowjobs from Belgium
    I’m too sure why this one is still getting a lot of hits. I think its from people searching google for “Blowjob“. Sick bastards
  2. Funny Motivational Posters
    We actually get more traffic from google for the term “Funny Motivational Posters” than from stumbleupon
  3. 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0
    Everybody just wants to break the law I guess.
  4. Guitar Hero 3 Details and Song List
    Another one mostly from google search.
  5. I’mah firein’ up mah ion cannon.
    You’ll have to ask Kanchi why this is so popular. CnC3 has been how for how long?

We’re also starting a few other projects.   One of those being a webbased MMORPG.  More information will be posted when it becomes available.

Sh17y Maintenance V

Saturday, December 1, 2007

Not much to write this time.

WordPress has been updated to  Version 2.3.1.

There was quite a few bugs fixed, but among them were:

  • Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
    Fixes for a login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than
    their WordPress Address
    Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag intersection queries
    Link importer fixes

Oh and www.thesh17.com was moved to a new server recently. It really is a lot quicker now, so if you notice any problems. Post a comment here and let me know.

Sh17ty Maintenance IV

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

  • I checked Google’s Webmaster Tools and saw a lot of 404 errors dealing with */Unknown
    • I don’t know what’s going on or why Google wants to add /Unknown to every link it finds. So I’m going to leave it alone for now.
  • I have my 404 error page set up to email me whenever it gets hit and there’s always tons of favicon.ico errors so I finally figured out the solution.
    • In my headers.php file I changed
      <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”favicon.ico” >
      <link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”http://www.thesh17.com/favicon.ico” >
    • Pretty easy fix. I was almost tempted to create a .htaccess rule to redirect all favicon.ico requests to that file until I realized it was my fault for not using an absolute path.
  • There’s a lot of 404 errors that look like this : http://www.thesh17.com/wp/2007/04/17/hot-fuzz-from-the-people-who-made-shaun-of-the-dead/feed:http://www.thesh17.com/comments/feed/
    • I don’t know how to fix this really. It only showed up recently so I’m hoping it’s just someone’s broken browser. As far As I can tell all links to comment feeds are correct and working.
  • The following pages were reported as not being reachable but work fine now.
  • There’s 272 urls being restricted by the robots.txt file and it cut my supplementary indexed pages down a lot. There’s 283 pages indexed by Google now.
  • Disabled the Shoutbox on the sidebar.
  • Removed the tag and category pages from the sitemap.xml file since they were being blocked by robots.txt anyway.
  • Disabled the Text Link Ads plugin.
  • Removed the Vizu Poll in the sidebar.

There’s some other things I did too, but I was bored and felt like listing these.

Sh17y Maintenance III

Thursday, May 24, 2007

  • I signed up for and started adding Text Link Ads to thesh17
  • Installed the beer-me plugin.
    • It’ll show a link at the bottom of every post to buy us beer. It’s better than asking for donations, right? A beer a day keeps thesh17.com running
  • Signed up for the AdGridNetwork
    • If it doesn’t bring any traffic to thesh17, I’ll probably remove it..
    • It’s at the bottom of the sidebar. Yell at me if you don’t like it.
  • DreamHost moved www.thesh17.com to a new host with less load so it shouldn’t take 5+ seconds to load the main page anymore.
  • Our forums are getting filled with spam.
  • I updated wordpress to 2.2 a few days ago.
  • I changed a lot of things with the site’s design and code, but it’s still basically broke in anything other than firefox. I’ll give somebody a dollar to fix it.
  • (edit)Fixed a few 404 errors with the category links and changed all of the category urls(not the tags)
  • (edit)Changed the robots.txt and sitemap.xml files
