I updated my blog to WordPress 4.7.5, which contained a number of security updates and bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. No issues to report with this update. Everything seems to have gone well.
Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day for 2017, especially my mom. Love you mom, you’re the greatest!
Well, after testing DrO’s beta Winamp Community Update Pack (WACUP) for awhile, I decided to make a separate WACUP Information page. Also, back in November 2016, I started adding my song history to a MySQL database and generating my song history from that. Now, I’ve decided it would be a good idea to separate my Winamp History from my Entertainment page.
Previously, I was generating all of the data only when a song was played or stopped. Winamp would call my custom PHP script using either Brandon Fuller’s Now Playing: A Winamp Plugin v22.214.171.124 in the standard Winamp or the built-in Play Tracker POST option of WACUP. It would save the information to a static text file which my Entertainment page would include. Now, only the currently playing song is saved to a text file when a song is played or stopped. The rest of the history is generated as the page is viewed from the MySQL data. This will allow me to change the presentation of the data without the need to play a new song to update the static text file.
Just wanted to wish a Happy Easter to everyone. I think this is my first Easter holiday post and I’m not sure why. Well, I think there might be one way back in the archives before I had a blog since I did have some older Easter images. Anyway, hope everyone has a great day!
