Here is where I am. A second level tech fixed WordPress. Said I had some bad ini Giles. I presume they mean php.ini. I suspect there were ones outside the main root directory. But it still doesn’t work correctly. Unfortunately she also changed the name of the blog and I moved domains so I have […]

Power returns to the Mac Family

Well different folks will have different opinions, but one issue with the Mac line has been a lack of power at the high end. The move to thinner and lighter has been great for laptops, but the high end really wants the power. The same with desktop systems where the older Mac Pro was beautiful […]
