    I get an error message each time I try and open a window - apart fron Trannychat - must be a software problem as I have no problem with other pages.

    Oh gosh, I've never driven one of these things before. I'm not even sure how to start it. Hmmm, lemme see, maybe this button...nope that makes the window go down. Maybe this one, well, that raises and lowers the driver seat. Wheee, kind of fun. Hmm, maybe this is it. Hey, alright, there it goes, now I bet this is the shift lever. OH CRAP! That's reverse, jeeze, hope nobody saw that and I really hope that guy behind me can find another headlight assembly for his Porsche Carrera. Oh well, it was old anyway. Oh-oh, here comes a cop, I better get outta here......... Well, if I can learn to drive this thing maybe I figure out how to post some stuff about my drive up to Washington and the Emerald City End of Summer Party.

    Gosh, is it Thursday already?  Doesn't time fly when you're having fun. Here's the update - The best brains on the planet have deduced that the reason our server was crashing every 6 - 8 hours was because it was running out of memory, which in turn was caused by our move to Mod_PERL, which uses more memory but less processor time. Eric has tweaked the server to prevent it from runing out of memory in future - well kind of.  It's seems to be a temporary fix.  We may need to move to yet another bigger, better, faster, server, with more memory at some stage.  For now this should help - I'm keeping an eagle eye on it over the next few days/weeks. We still have loads of bugs to get sorted.  The Who's Online feature doesn't work.  Our new birthday script doesn't worlk.  Mass deletion of mass mail doesn't work.  There's still a problem with some members accounts being disabled for non-payment, when they have in fact paid. I can't seem to get the new drop-down menu system to work, which is unfortunate now that we've paid for it. We still have the worst, slowest, chat room on the planet with no sign of Volano turning up or Jabber being installed.  Eric may get back to me on that today. I wish Eric would get more staff.  Because everything has to go through him and because he's inundated with requests for help from all of his other customers, it takes forever for us to get anything done. I also need to get going on the Trib if there's to be a February edition.  We didn't manage a January issue because of all the technical problems.  That cost us valuable revenue. Anyway, enough of my problems.  This morning the sun is shining brightly although it's bitterly cold.  It snowed a bit last night so the scene outside my window is sunny, crisp and white - very pretty. There is much to do - onward...

    It snowed last night and this morning - travelling to work was fun took ages longer than usual - only had 1" here but it caused chaos - why is it that many places in the world manage to survive and even thrive on masses more snow than we have but hee everthing stops for even the tiniest amount? Strange - not the day to go out in short skirt and high heels - unfortunately - more of a day to curl up in front of the fire and drink some warming beverage and relax with a good weepy book.

    Today Eric is monitoring the server with some Linux thing called TOP, which means nothing to me.  If things start to turn turtle, it should give him an idea as to what the problem is. I've been busy working on the new Trannyweb navigation system.  We already have so too many features to pack into our main menu at the top of each page and with the addition of this blogger, TrannySurveys and Jabber coming soon, we really need a new way to navigate through the site. So I've bought and am now setting up a new DHTML drop-down menu system.  I've also identified some new bugs, introduced by the software upgrade, which I've passed on to Eric.  One of which is the fact that our birthday script doesn't work!

    Well another day at work over - still lots to do. Don't know when I will be able to dress again - you know this could become very depressing - come on Tina buck up - things are never as bad as they seem. Updated my website and emailed everyone who has signed my guestbook to tell them of the update and received some very nice and very complimentary replies - perhaps i am doing something right. That's all at the moment  - will write more later

    Yesterday was a very frustrating day with the server going down about four times, once for about two hours.  The Canadians are off till nine o'clock on Monday morning (that's 3pm here) so I can't get any help from them. The hosting company want to charge me $150 an hour to look at the server logs for me.  As I don't have that kind of money, I've taken to reading my huge Linux tome to try to figure out how to look at the logs myself. Today (Sunday), I've managed to look at some of the logs but I haven't a clue what anything in them means.  I think I've also deleted the contents of the most important log, Spooler, by mistake 'coz I don't know what I'm doing.  AAAAAaaaaaaaggghhhh!!!  Stop the web, I want to get off!!!!! I think I've also discovered a new bug which disables members accounts if they make any changes to their profiles and then emails me to say that they requested an upgrade but didn't pay!  That's the kind of thing you'd expect a nasty virus to do! There appear to be loads of other bugs too, which are going to make my life difficult over the next few days.  Because the Canadions have rolled out this new software upgrade to all of their other customers too, they must be inundated with angry emails about all the bugs.  They obviously don't have time to mess about with our problems. If we were not so heavily immersed in their software, I think I might start to look for another software company.  The Canadians have always been friendly but they are a very, very small outfit and don't seem to have enough staff to cope when something like this happens.  So very many of the technical problems we've had at Trannyweb have been because of buggy software - we must be getting a poor reputation for reliability around the web. Some of it must be down to me too.  I'm not a proper programmer - just an amateur who bitten off more than she can chew.  I didn't get into this thing to be a computer boffin.  I just wanted to be a girl and run a community for like-minded people. It's at times like this when I think of chucking it all in and putting the site up for sale, not that anyone would want to buy it with all these technical issues. 1303 on Sunday afternoon - I struggle on...
