At some point, the WordPress software used here broke and was producing an error; no blog content, just the error.
“Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.”
I finally got off my butt and figured it out. I figure it broke when I upgraded the version of PHP being used on the site when trying to fix something else (possibly the forums) which made it incompatible with the really old version of WordPress being used.
The solution was to update to the latest version of WordPress. Which I did and the blog content is now back.
Now the question is whether I will continue writing new posts. I haven’t decided that yet. I know my last post states that I wouldn’t be posting anything else here and using either the main page or the forums. The truth is that those two options seem much more formal than I would like for my blog posts. Posting my sometimes random thoughts on the main page or in the forums just hasn’t been comfortable. I may restart using the blog. I’m not sure yet.
