My Joomla workaround

The problem is not solved, but I found the following workaround:
  1. Create a small article (live site)
  2. Create the full article (localhost/backup site)
  3. Use PHPmyAdmin to edit the created article from step 1
  4. Paste the HTML code from step 2
  5. Save :)
This is not perfect but at least it works!

I am thinking of doing the following when I find the time:

  • Buy a new domain (I need one for my photography site)
  • Install Joomla!
  • See if it supports big articles
  • If yes, I will move the site to the new server

Really strange...

Strange things keep hapenning: Although I downgraded to Joomla! 1.7.5 using a backup (Akeeba), the problems still exist and I cannot edit or create articles with large amounts of text.
The last thing that I am going to try is to clean install Joomla! 1.7.5 and do a restore -- this worked on my iMac even with version 2.5.1.

keep working...

Tried full restore...

I tried to do a full restore to Joomla! 2.5.1 first but the problems remain.
So, sooner or later, I will downgrade to Joomla! 1.7.5.

Keep working...

Should you buy the latest equipment?

"Competition is win-lose. There aren't any do-overs. You win the job, or some under-50 kid does. Just like any other kind of race, the race may be won won by thousandths of second. In competition, everything matters. This is why professional bicycle racers might spend a million dollars to develop a bicycle just a thousandth of a second faster: because that thousandth might be all that's needed to win, instead of being second (the first loser)."

An advice on iOS programming books

When you buy a book about iOS programming, read it immediately!
That is because if you delay reading it, a new version of iOS may come up and then you will have an old (!) book.
If you cannot read it immediately, do not buy it until you have enough time to read it.
