For those who don’t know how these things work, all websites, including my Boots & Gear site and this blog, require “hosting.” A web host places files that control what you see when you visit websites on its server(s).
The files include…
Again, I am finding myself apologizing for not keeping up with this blog. One may think that since I retired and am pretty much staying home to reduce exposure to the Covid-19 virus, I would have more time to write on this blog.
One would think…. however, my days lately have been consumed with…
YAY! I finally fixed this vexing issue where I had converted this blog domain (bootedmanblog.com) to HTTPS:// but after doing that, the images were not showing.
After many calls to my hosting service, and no help from an expensive “WP Live” service, this is how…
I tried migrating to the HTTPS protocol, and once again, no images are showing on this blog. I’ve tried searching for answers… no luck. This is terribly confusing.
Until I can reach Support, please be patient. This blog may be restored soon… or it may not.
I hate this.
Life is short: thanks for your patience.
I am sorry that for about the last week, my website bootedman.com, its boot reviews and knowledgebase wiki and this blog were alternating between being “up” and visible, or parts of the website not being visible, the wiki was and was not working, or this blog disappearing and substituting with an error message about a PHP conflict.

Well, it has been a while, but this blog reached a major milestone in having this post be the 3,000th post on this blog. I realize this year I have been posting much less frequently. Regardless, the blog lives on since it began in January, 2008, more than 12 years ago.
I did a little research from the all-knowing Dr. Google, and learned that for “hobby blogs” like this one…
Sheesh… after spending about 100 hours recoding 822 pages of my website, I got the https:// secure service to work. Yay!
However, I ran into several problems, including–
In my last post, I described that someone sent me an email to ask me to share some of what I have learned. So I posted about learning to listen and not always be the first one with an opinion.
Today, I will write about another thing my email-writer remarked about:
You emphasize detail and the importance of quality: Fewer and fewer people appreciate these wonderful things or express their gratitude when someone takes the time to demonstrate them.
Again, wow… I really did not think that this little blog would have this characteristic noted. Thank you.
Regarding the topic… (more after the jump)
Visitors to this blog may have seen it go through gyrations of appearances with https:// and regular insecure http:// protocols.
I have spent more hours and hours trying to…
I blogged before that I had purchased SSL certificates for this website and bootedman.com website, but I could not figure out how to get them to work to show these sites with the “https://” URL.
For a while, I gave up. But now that I have a bit more time since I retired, I…
