One more quote

Hello, dears!

I´m sure you´re expecting my usual daily quote but today is going to be a little bit different.

Have you ever heard the expression “stop and smell the roses”, right? Well, the original quote belongs to Mr. Walter Hagen (a major figure in golf in the first half of the 20th century), and his exact words were: “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way”.

I started blogging in September 2015 and I have not taken a break since then. I´ve enjoyed every single day, I have met many wonderful people and made some good friends. I have learned a lot from you and I have grown more as a person than as a blogger. I feel nothing but gratitude: thanks for your support that you have shown all this time, but also thanks for all the inspiration, help, advice and pearls of wisdom you share from your blogs! Keep writing because I´m not going anywhere!!

It´s just that my daily (hopefully) motivational quote series ends today: 532 quotes. I had no specific number in mind when I started but lately, I´ve been feeling it´s time to make some changes. I have more quotes than exercises or post about fitness. When I think about it, a voice in my head tells me something is not right… and I agree 🙂

Back in September 2015, I knew nothing about blogging. In November 2017 I know that more than two thousand followers deserve better than a daily motivational quote, weekly recipes, and occasional fitness post.

After my come back, I plan to post just three times per week, things I think you´d like to see again: playlists, exercises, recipes, fitness tips… and some new stuff. My goal is to deliver twelve worth reading posts every month, starting in December.

This month, after two years, I´m going to press the Pause button instead of Publish. No hurries, no worries, I´ll be smelling the flowers 😉

Big hugs!

 

 

403 error

Hello, dears!

I´d appreciate if you could help me to find a solution to a 403 error message. This story began when I installed a new plugin. In theory, it was 100% compatible but once I activated it, I couldn´t access my dashboard anymore: 403 error. Access denied. I contacted my hosting company and as I expected, it was a total waste of time. I solved this problem deleting the plugin (and some other inactive ones) via FTP. Ok, cool.

I contacted my hosting company and as I expected, it was a total waste of time. So, I asked Saint Google and I found some related articles. I solved this problem deleting the plugin (and some other inactive ones) via FTP. Ok, cool.

Now, I realize that no one can add products to the shopping cart. And not only that, I can´t install new plugins.

I´ve already tried all the options explained on wpbeginners.com, and Bobcares,  How to Fix the 403 Forbidden error in WordPress.

Htaccess file, checked.

Permissions 755 (directories) 644 (archives), checked.

Deactivate plugins, checked.

None of these worked. Any ideas?

Thank you 🙂

 

 

Finally, my new computer is ready

Hello, dears!

As many of you know, my computer crashed a couple of weeks ago. Often, and for no reason at all, my computer was shutting down without giving any error message. One good day, it shut down and never started again. I took it to a friend’s store to find a solution. The next day my friend called with the bad news: “It´s the motherboard”. This fired all the alarms and red lights because I replaced the motherboard 8-9 months ago, due to the very same problem.

This poor motherboard died too young. Two motherboards burned in less than one year? Weird. I think it´s not the motherboard that is causing problems but suffering them.

I discussed my concerns with my friend, but he found no problems in other components. So, I got a new motherboard.

A new brand, just in case. My friend assembled all the stuff at the store, and it worked fine. Great! Shit happens but this was a quick and easy fix.

I got home and turned the computer on. Just like that, the hard drive burned in flames! A disgusting smell and a lot of white smoke filled the room in a blink.

Immediately, I texted my friend with the disturbing news and took back the computer to the store. Two days later, my friend called me back to tell me that he couldn´t find anything wrong. I wanted to yell at him. But I’ve yelled too many times in my life to know that it solves nothing. Instead of yelling, I decided to buy a new computer. New components, actually because I like to customize my computers. This time, I´m sorry but I didn´t buy at my friend´s store. I´m not rewarding him for not finding why the hard drive burned.

I cleared my loved case Aerocool Strike-X Air preventing the temptation of turning on the computer and burn something else.

I´ve been using AMD processors for years with very good results and this AM4, 12 core, 3.8 Ghz promises a lot.

Motherboard MSI B350 Tomahawk Artic. It has so many features that I think I need to read the user manual.

This motherboard also admits a hard drive SSD M.2. I never had one before so, I had to give it a try 🙂

I also bought other SSD and 16 Gb of RAM memory. Kingston products have a lifetime warranty and, in my opinion, beating that offer is impossible.

I had to read a lot of reviews to choose the graphic card. The winner was: MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.

And, closing the shopping list, a new power supply, because I ended paranoic and the old power supply may have burned the other components. The new one is a Mars Gaming 500W.

Yesterday was a Lego-day, assembling all the stuff. I also did formatting and installing work, but there is no funny word game for such tedious tasks. Good news is I could bring my new Frankenstein to life!

Now, I breathe a sigh of relief as I find the best settings for my new buddy. So glad to be back 🙂

A remarkable spam

I´m sure you get a good dose of daily spam comments. This morning I found a very interesting-scary comment in my spam folder. I took a screenshot because I would not believe it if someone just told me the story.

Do you need fake passports, ID cards, driver´s licenses…
