Something happened to bioinformaticsblog.org last night. Something in the presentation layer went bad and could not be fixed. I dropped the whole of the blogging software and reinstalled – the SQL dump was useless; the problem persisted. I recovered the content, reinstalled and voila, we’re back in business. One of the plugins was useless and broke the whole shebang. The error logs clearly points to the amung.us crap … I was suspicious before! I’m now on the hunt for something more friendly.
During the error investigation I discovered how much bandwidth WordPress uses – a huge amount. In the admin console there appears to be constant traffic – gigabytes of the stuff. Close windows please; they’re chomping through our quota!
