  • Recovering from “There has been a critical error on your website” error!

    TitanFusion experienced the dreadful “There has been a critical error on your website” error after an automatic WordPress update failed to install version 6.4. Not good, because the day that happened, I was traveling. I did not know it had happened until next morning. There is no easy way to get this fixed, because it…

  • Azure Static Web Apps, Custom Domains, and Cloudflare

    My AlexandarTzanov.com profile website became inaccessible after switching to Cloudflare DNS from Google Domains DNS. I had to go this route because Google announced that they are going to sell the Google Domains service to Squarespace. For some reason this was not announced via email to Google Domains customers! At least I did not receive…

  • Sub-domain vs sub-directory

    Lately I have been seeing the terms sub-domain and sub-directory being used interchangeably in the context of hosting, but even though the former can point to the latter, they are not the same. A sub-directory is a file storage location/association in the hierarchy of the file system. A sub-domain is an address locator, which in…

  • Source Code DNA, a repository/library for code snippets in JS, PHP, Perl, C/C++ and Objective-C

    I have started a new section on Titan Fusion, specifically for programming. I have named it Source Code DNA. I am going to use it just as library/repository for various snippets of code, e.g. classes, functions, small scripts. At this time I am going to limit the content to the following languages: JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3,…

  • The great Google / TitanFusion.net experiment

    I have decided to conduct an experiment on my website TitanFusion.net. A very involved experiment.  I am going to see how many aspects TitanFusion.net: email, blogs, sub-sites, files, feeds, exc. can be hosted and served by Google services, be they independent or part of Google Apps. I have already been using Google Apps Mail and Feedburner…

  • Now available in Bulgarian.

    As a Bulgarian I’m always excited when I see “[…] available in Bulgarian.” or simply a link titled “Bulgarian” linking to a Bulgarian version of whatever site I am on. Today, one of these sites I came across was WordPress.org. There are many Bulgarian communities around the world. To my knowledge the largest one is…

  • XBox 360 no video, only audio

    Over the weekend I had some lack of video from my XBox360. Nothing that some heat couldn’t fix. Apparently most problems with the Xbox360 are fixed by that which kills PCs – heat. I have an XBox360, which is one of those that was born with bugs and “genetic” issue – meaning an early version…

  • I’m working here!!

    I am working on features and services for DomainVentory, which seems to be taking too long to become a public web site. I blame it on all of my freelance and home projects, and day job. Which are not necessarily bad, because I do get compensated well. But any ways. For some reason whenever I’m…

  • What is the point behind a URL shortening service? Why are there so many?

    What is the point behind a URL shortening service? In essence, why is everyone using them and why are there so many? These were questions asked on TechCrunch, yesterday, by Ronald Tin, but not in so many words. My reply to him was as follow: Ronald, the point of a URL shortening service is to…

  • Server scalability and Oxbury Publishing.

    Currently Hive Minds Hosting is hosting Oxbury Publishing, including their other web properties. As the company business is growing, and it is expending in to customized reports and articles, delivered via newsletter, I know that the current server will not be able to handle the load of newsletter campaigns that are going to take place.…
