I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

Technical Difficulties

It’s been very difficult to blog at all for the past several days.  Every time I tried to write a post, something kept preventing me from saving it to the blog.  The post about the new transmission a couple of days ago took about three hours to get up publicly.

It turns out my web host has installed a new firewall setup in the servers that interpreted my posts as SQL injection attacks on the web server and refused connection, based on some of the words or phrases in the posts.  Very common words like “alter” or “drop” are actually key words in the SQL language.

So, I was limited to slowly and frustratingly write small posts.  As of today, however, the web host tells me i should be ship-shape to post whatever I want via WordPress.  Sadly, tonight’s blogging is limited to this, as its 11 o’clock, and I’ve spent the last 6 hours going through the year-end accounting for my business.

I just hope that the next time I do a long post, I don’t learn that the firewall problem still exists!
