I’ve been tinkering with the nuts and bolts of my site. It turns out I can access the MySQL databases directly, so I can change all the information in this blog manually without going through the WordPress software. Testing out this new-found power was slightly nerve-wracking! But I kept careful track of the changes I was making, and everything turned out like it was supposed to.
Ah, paid web hosting is so much better than having a free Geocities site. Not that it was bad! I rather liked the Geocities site statistics function. I found out a couple of places I was linked from that I didn’t know about. But here at P4HOST I can download the raw access logs and write my own traffic analysis scripts! They also have some site statistics software you can use, but it’s kind of confusing and doesn’t tell me what I want to know. It’s more fun to write my own anyway.
