Podshow+ Profiles

I’ve spent a while messing about with my BTpodshow (or Podshow+ or whatever it end up being called!) profile, and for ages I haven’t been able to work out how to edit the “About Me” text. I’ve been pulling my hair out over it (well, metaphorically at least). At last I’ve worked out how.

You need to go to the ‘Master Control’ page and click ‘Edit Legend’ to change the “About Me” text. Of course! Silly me!

Now I’ve done that I might find the energy to change how the page looks.

Hosting

DreamhostThis website, and most of the others that I run, are now happily sitting on Dreamhost servers.

I’ve been using them since February, and they’ve been great so far. It took me a while to get the Windows hosting paradigm out of my head, and I haven’t looked back. I’ve used their support via email a couple of times and their response has been timely and helpful (both things were my mistake – ho hum).

This blog, for example, was installed with just a couple of clicks using Dreamhost‘s “one click installer”. When a new version of WordPress is released, I can just click the “update” button, and hey presto, my blog is backed up and WordPress is updated.

Other one click installs on Dreamhost:

PHP4 or 5:
WordPress Weblog (v2.0.5) – wordpress.org
phpBB Forum (v2.0.21) – phpbb.com
Gallery Image Album (v2.1.2) – gallery.menalto.com
ZenCart Store (v1.3.6) – zencart.com
Joomla (Mambo) CMS (v1.0.11) – joomla.org

PHP5 only:
activeCollab Collaboration (v0.6) – activecollab.com
MediaWiki Wiki (v1.8.2) – wikipedia.sourceforge.net

PHP4 only:
Advanced Poll (v2.03) – proxy2.de
WebCalendar Calendar (v1.0.4) – k5n.us

Not to mention more bandwidth and diskspace than you can eat, with multiple and true sub-domains to boot. And it all seems to run fast enough for me.

If you use the code TOM50 you’ll get $50 off any plan (and I get a referral!) 🙂
