This article concerns login security and two-factor authentication (2FA) on wordpress. Not the usual dismal fare. Continue reading Testing Google Authenticator App Login Security
Had to move azbikelaw.org (and cazbike.org) hosting today. Continue reading Stablehost hosting
This is probably only of interest to me and has nothing to do with bicycling… Continue reading Email issues: migration from Godaddy to Webhost.pro
This picks up where godaddy-troubles-slow-wordpress-grid-hosting-solution left off. Azbikelaw has been on so-called grid hosting from godaddy ever since the migration of Nov 2010. And it’s been pretty good ever since; it’s not blazing fast, e.g. webpagetest.org on one particular afternoon saw a full wordpress homepage load in under 3 seconds; 1st byte at under a second. So, acceptable. As we learned in Dec of 2014 when problems arose trying to use wordpress on cazbike.org, grid hosting is no longer available for new accounts (i.e. azbikelaw is “grandfathered”). So, at that time cazbike.org to transitioned (albeit manually, I had to reload everything from scratch) to “cPanel” hosting. The pricing is the same. Continue reading Godaddy go slow again?
In the beginning, say from 2000-2013 or 14: my username is azbikelaw (probably not a surprise or a revealing security hole, seeing as how it is in the domain name); and I use that to log into ssh and everything is spiffy. When logged in to ssh, e.g. I see my files are “owned” by azbikelaw. So far so good. Continue reading godaddy and ssh and cron

Advances in LED lighting, and Li-Ion batteries have made BRIGHT lighting for cyclists reasonable and cost-effective.
The picture doesn’t do it justice; these lights are very very bright; I have been running them in daylight on their lower-power setting and they are quite visible.
The lights I stumbled on are sold on eBay “direct from China”; from seller “lifebike2011” for ~ $30 (the price has been going down) for a kit that includes a light head; handlebar mount; head strap (that i’ve never used or tried) and a 4-cell Li-Ion battery pack (which is wired in parallel, by the way; i.e. nominal voltage is 4VDC).

[ok, so it’s not exactly correct to blame Godaddy. this is something they (godaddy) is doing for security purposes to try and prevent various types of attacks on their servers; which we godaddy customers should appreciate, even if troublesome.
Update: I called in the morning early of 9/26/2013. They are totally aware of the problem. I had turned on my error logs last night but strangely they were and still were empty; supposedly the tech said they will look into that. Other than that they pretty much said it *should* be fixed within 48 hours. As of 1130am it does look good; so i’m not sure if something was actually generally fixed , or if they just whitelised my ip — the tech did want my ip address so that’s a possibility]
Manifests itself in chrome browser as “No data received” (or as “This page can’t be displayed” in IE) when trying to publish or update a post in wordpress, and is (annoyingly) intermittent. Continue reading Ug another godaddy problem
