Oy, Time To Get Back To Work

Robert Downey Jr. Getting back to Work in 2008's "Iron Man"

For the past three years (especially 2015), I’ve been neglecting my two websites: Wopular.com and MoviesWithButter.com. During that peroid, I worked in spurts: there were months when I was very active and others when I just disappeared. I’ll get into the why in the future. But for now, I plan to work on my babies more consistently. That’s my plan for 2016. Hopefully, it’ll last.

    Over at MoviesWithButter.com, I’ve written two articles regarding “Ip Man 3,” the film that’s holding its own in Asian territories against “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” If you’re not familiar with Asian cinema,”Ip Man” one of the most popular franchises in that area of the world. More
  • Live-Blogged The Golden Globes at MWBLive-Blogged The Golden Globes at MWB
    Yesterday, I live-blogged The Golden Globes -- for various reasons. First, it gets traffic. Second, I might as well do something useful while watching TV. Lastly, I was looking forward to seeing Ricky Gervais host the event again. Nothing against Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but he’s my favorite. A google search revealed that the last time I did this for this award show was More

    The preview on NBA.com and the injury report from SactownRoyalty.com don’t look good for the Sacramento Kings going into tonight’s game against the playoff-bound Dallas Mavericks. More

    (Image from the Sacramento Bee. Click here to view more images from the game.) What a win. It was a wild one, especially in the first half. We [Sacramento Kings] were down by 17 in the first quarter. In frustration, I was about to turn off the TV, but the teaml called a timeout. More

    Here's my latest review on MoviesWithButter.com of "The Transporter Refueled," the reboot of the Jason Statham franchise without the star (and it's not bad): I wasn’t expecting much from “The Transporter Refueled.” What’s a “Transporter” movie without Jason Statham? Not much, I thought. More

  • Moved SimplePie File Caching to DatabaseMoved SimplePie File Caching to Database
    A while back, My ISP told me my backups took half a day to complete, which is too long. If anything goes wrong during that period, the process would have to start all over again, which happened quite often. The customer rep told me that my server had too many files, and even though they didn’t take up much disk space when added up, the process of copying each one of them takes a lot of time. More
  • Weekend EditionWeekend Edition
    After updating the site for seven days a week since the site was started years ago, I will be hands off during the weekends from now on. Because I don’t want the site to look too static, I’ve decided to redesign the “Most Fed Articles” block from the top right area of the site and moving it the top left just for the weekends and calling it “Weekend Edition.” If you came to the site this past weekend, you may have noticed the change and relocation. That’s just a start. More
  • Relieving High Server Load by Blocking Search BotsRelieving High Server Load by Blocking Search Bots
    Over the years, whenever the site was slow to load up, I always went through the same routine. I checked traffic logs to see if it was due to a sudden increase in traffic. If not, I would look at the mysql slow query log to see if there were slow queries bogging up the database. More

    The site crashed yesterday morning at around 9am, although it’s hardly noticable until a couple hours later. I didn’t notice it until I started picking stories to feature on the homepage. Whenever i tried to feature an article, it would stop the site from loading up. From that, I knew that the MySQL database must be checking for corrupt tables. More
  • AddThis Removes "via @addthis" Suffix in TweetsAddThis Removes "via @addthis" Suffix in Tweets
    I just noticed in the last couple of days that the sharing platform AddThis has removed “via @addthis” at the end of tweets using their widget. I use AddThis throughout the site. It’s a handy little widget that allows users to share articles through any social bookmarking/sharing site, like Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon and Pinterest. As a website owner, I use it to tweet articles to my Twitter account. More
