PowerUserGuide.com’s future. Or “I really, really don’t like WordPress.com”

“What’s a PowerUserGuide.com”? asked the user who doesn’t follow everything I do? What, indeed. This was supposed to be a productive night Today was supposed to be a productive night. I wanted to make some changes to one of my sites. After I swapped out one cookie cutter template for another one, I wanted to …

Why I no longer recommend Siteground

Editor’s note: I forgot to correctly establish the timeline, and some people wondered about that. I should mention that I moved my website(s) away from them as early as November 2020, before their most recent price hike went into effect.

Announcing “From App To Zip”

After a lot of deliberating, the time is finally there to announce my latest project. Say hello to From App To Zip, everyone! And while we’re at it, we’re partially retiring Joomla & More.

Multiple Polish city domains compromised.

In the past few days, a trend has emerged on one of my websites. There has been a stream of subscriptions to e-mail updates from Polish e-mail addresses which are obviously fake.

Analysis Paralysis deleted this post.

Earlier today, I sat down to write a blog post about a topic. However, the problem is that I can’t tell you what that topic was. I forgot because of what happened after I sat down. Once I was ready to start writing, I immediately got distracted. My brain kindly informed me that I have …
