Back to normal

After yesterday’s fun (not) and games (hardly) with the server, Dreamhost’s techies seem to have fixed the problem that was making it impossible for me to get anything done. :grin:

Apart from the general network issues that I already knew about, it seems the server was getting confused because it was trying to connect to a file server (or filer) that wasn’t altogether there. I’ve seen Windows do something similar. Computers are a bit stupid like that, you know. If they think something is there, they’ll keep trying and trying and trying until someone hits them with a big stick.

Anyway, I’ve been fiddling around with the site all evening, and it’s been working just fine. I finished moving images into Gallery, which involved editing around 40 old posts, and I’ve upgraded to the latest release of WordPress. So far, everything appears to be working as it should…
