Upgrades and Curling Up to a Good Book

Yesterday turned out to be busier then I thought.

I decide to take part of the day off and spend sometime away for the computer. Although the weather sucked, it was 55 degrees out side and it’s June, something is definitely wrong around here. But it was nice o just get away.

So after spending most of the day out and about I thought I would upgrade OpenX to the latest version, I have been slacking on upgrading it. I was upgrading from OpenAds2.11. It went pretty well, although I am still having a little difficulty with importing my database from OpenAds where my banners are being stored. I will figure it out sometime today.

Also I decided to upgrade my last forum to the vBulletin 3.7.1 PL1, which was just released, I have been running 3.6.8 for a little while and thought since I was upgrading OpenX, I mine as well do another upgrade.

Then my wife got home and she brought a gift from our PO Box, A copy of Patrick O’Keefe’s book Managing Online Forums.

Patrick contacted me a little over a week ago on Twitter, (gotta love the power of Twitter) seeing if I would like to review a copy of his book and then afterwards contact him about doing an interview. How could I pass that up? I started to read it last night and looking forward to finishing it up in the next couple of days, although its around 290 pages in total. So look for that interview in the near future.

Why another blog about forums? Great question, we are just a couple of forum owners who have built ours forums from the ground-up. We just wanted a blog for real life forum owners, with real life experiences.

    I'm interested in hearing some managing forum tips!

    You know I will pass some on as soon as I finish the book. Or ask away any questions you may have.
