Site Status

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

Ok so when I last posted that the site was back online, it was back online, however not to the extent that I was hoping for as older posts were no longer working. But they were all in the manage posts section so I decided to export the blog via WP then re-import the data via WP.

This time things worked out fine, except I was wondering why posts were not working properly when coming from google etc, the problem turned out to be that I had not told the new WP to have the post permalink as www.the1qwerty.com/post-title. After I edited that things are back working as normal.

I just have to get the theme back up and RSS going out via Feedburner and then all will be good.

Site Back Online

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

After moving The1Qwerty.com to another registrar and host, I had some problems as I backed up the database on an older WP version, thinking I could just import it. However WP backed it up as a sql file and not the format that the latest WP uses.

So I had to import the file via phpMyAdmin, where I managed to over write the database for Saucethegame.com. (Was linking to the1qwerty.com for some reason) Fortunately I was able to roll back the database and had fixed up saucethegame.com

Then I had a couple of other issues removing WP and then reinstalling. Got that all worked out. Which then lead my to import my database into phpMyAdmin properly.

The important thing is the site is back and everything is just the way it should be. (Well in terms of data, just need to change the theme to have my subscribe via RSS pictures.)

Happy Belated Birthday The1Qwerty

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

Yes it just dawned on me the other day (I missed it with the excitement of Sauce The Game) that The1Qwerty.com is a year old. I must say that it is interesting to look back over the articles at the things that were happening in the gaming world during 2007. (Although I did miss a large amount of it for schooling purposes which I can say paid off well).

So Happy Birthday The1Qwerty.com!

Sauce The Game Launches

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

I did hint towards the end of last year that I was planning on rolling out a few projects in the new year. Well one of them is out now. Sauce The Game is a new free online video show dedicated to showing off Open Source games, with one game per episode. The first episode stars Tremulous which is one of my all time favourite games.

Stargate Worlds Trailer Released

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

The first trailer for Stargate Worlds has been released. If your are not familiar with Stargate Worlds, it is an up and coming MMORPG based in the Stargate universe, due to be released in the last quarter of the year.

You can view the trailer over at GameSpot.

My only disappointment with what I see is that the humans have some weird suit, which has never been used in a Stargate episode before, and looks futuristic, whereas the Stargate universe is based on the present day. The explosion that takes place behind the gate is nothing flash either, I guess that they still have time to tweak things before the launch of the game.

Other than that it’s not a bad trailer and it’s great to see some video rather than just screen shots.
