This post will be updated as upgrade tasks complete, newest data dump first. Please excuse any website weirdness as we continue our improvements!
Even if you already had an account, Log Out and use the Join Link with the same email and re-register in DAP, then everything will sync up.

(1:30a) Final Update for the night, really happy with EditFlow, it is deceptively simple but it looks like it applies that simplicity perfectly to managing the time and projects of multi-team workflows. I will have to play with the document revision software as I quickly found it has a file type filter and wouldn’t allow GIMP .XCF files, but worked fine with a PNG. Until tomorrow… Sweet nightmares…

(Midnight Madness) My over 24 hour hacking adventure is coming to a close, I want to get a full night sleep before getting back to work with my collaborators tomorrow. EditFlow and Document Manager both look good but will need some additional customization as the default is “newspaper-centric”. Makes sense as a starting point, however our workflow will be quite a bit more complicated as it involves audio, video, special effects, and web departments to implement.

(10:30p) Time to try out EditFlow and the other associated plugins, unfortunately these cool new features won’t be public just yet.

(7p) Working on the byline and plugins. To refresh an old account Log Out and use the Join Link.

(5p) Spent some time working on normal work stuff and let the site simmer in it’s own juices for a bit. Looks like the CDN hasn’t been picking up the heavy load, but the server caching and CloudFlare are working and speeding things up considerably. Otherwise all the old plugins are working at least nominally. Time for a bit of break/fix and then backup and start on more new plugins.

(12p) Fairly solid so I will try enabling the CDN caching, do some comparison tests and then start installing the new plugins.

(10a) Playing it safe worked great, the core plugins all look good. Hopefully I straightened out all the duplicate page definitions between DAP and BuddyPress for example. A fast backup and I’ll try enabling the full load just to see what breaks.

(3a) Now is the time to get a bit creative and start integrating some of the other plugins in to the website. First I will be adding back in the must have systems like BuddyPress, Genesis plugins, Forums. One core I’m leaving off for now is W3 Total Cache (W3TC) so I can be sure everything works without caching then test it all again with certain types of caching. First I’ll be doing a full backup and taking a relaxing bath while it syncs and downloads. Marathon hacking sessions take their toll, taking a break can really recharge the batteries. I’m looking forward to moving on to testing the new plugins for the editing process and more!

(11p) The login/logout widget is now customized quite a bit for both possible states. I’m sure I will tweak it a bit more but the customization itself has been very easy, just adjust the html template and upload. In fact despite the default install looking rather spartan, I have not had any major issues with the core product or implementing the Self Service Store.

(10p) Thanks to Poetesse who came home and tested if DAP breaks when you already have an account. Well it doesn’t break anything but she did have to create a “new” account by signing up again. Still some bad instructions in the emails and web forms but I know where to customize now. Happy Valentine’s Day sweetheart and thanks for testing your account on the new system!

(6p) After stripping the website down to bare essentials to ensure a clean install of the new membership systems, the core DAP package is installed with a single free membership level. While you can join now I wouldn’t recommend it, mostly because I really don’t know if I will have to wipe the DAP database at some point if I blow things up. Also the signup instructions and welcome emails are a bit confusing, it mentions a password being sent but it’s a double opt-in email instead. Basically minor edits that are waiting for me to get to them, however I want to continue going over the core. Unfortunately it looks like all previous wordpress accounts will need to be deleted and re-created.

Bonus Flickr Art Nude Search for Creative Commons licensed pictures. I often use this or a variation of it as a starting place for finding the 3rd party pictures on the site.

  1. It seems like he's building a mmmooonnnsssttteeerrr!

  2. I WANTED TO POST THIS VIDEO ELSEWHERE, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW. I CAME BACK HERE WHEN IT TOLD ME THERE WAS NOT A USER WITH MY EMAIL IN THE SYSTEM. I GOT HERE BY EMAIL. SNAFU?

    Time Travel Proof? George Clarke made a startling discovery while watching his DVD copy of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 film "The Circus." Hollywood premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Clarke caught the image of what appears to be a stocky old woman chatting on — a cell phone. The black-and-white scene is peculiar, to say the least, if only for the obvious reason that the mobile phone wasn't invented until the early '70s. In the footage, the woman appears in frame with her hand to her ear and her mouth moving; she crosses the screen and turns, happily chatting as the scene cross-fades. The eerie old lady clearly has something in her hand and seeing as how the woman is alone she appears to be talking into or at it.

  3. More of a forum topic, I'm too tired to move it or contemplate what kind of paradox a time traveler getting caught on tape would engender. I'll just stick with saying that cell phones are not the only thing the human race holds to their head occasionally, and our minds are very good at finding patterns where there may not be one. Otherwise keep it on topic or start a new post, I know the forum has had zero attention but that will change, the basics are all there!

    • HEX, the system didn't recognize my email when I wanted to go to the forum to post there, I wasn't on signed in. I tried to sign in and it denied me. SNAFU? I think that there must have been a communication breakdown. Read the next post I posted.

  4. Nibiru's projected path in 2012. Downloaded from Disclosed Tv. I do not own this video.It's a model of collected data created using universe sandbox. It is only to show its path. I didn't make it. In fact I talk about it in a video of mine and it comes close enough to us. There is however substantial evidence to believe that it has already gone as NASA calls it Elenin. I talk about that in a video too.
