WordPress as a CMS for Natasha Buchanan MUA

So I have just finished migrating Natasha Buchanan’s Website completely over to WordPress, and I’m happy to say it was a breeze and the results are brilliant.

It was original built using .NET and hosted on a separate Windows Server with a MS SQL 2008 server supporting the database requirements, which was costing a fair few pounds each year.

I have been looking at various CMS solutions recently to find which is the easiest to stand up a complete site within, and are not to complicated to use and update. I looked at the main leaders such as Drupal and Joomla but to be honest they were overly complicated.

I took a look at WordPress and got the results I needed in half the time (or even less) it would have taken to do in Joomla or Drupal. Yes the other two are far more powerful but if you are simply looking to stand up a basic site with a few pages then WordPress is the way to go.

Recent iPhone Alarm Bug Solved

With the coming of the new year of 2011 brought a very annoying bug with the iPhone that rendered the daily alarms useless.

The problem made owners wake up late for the first days back to work for 2011 and some missed plains or trains as the alarms failed to go off.

Apple said however these problems would rectified from 3rd January which was true for some people, but not all, including my girlfriends iPhone.

So in true IT fashion I basically “turned it off and back on again”. Meaning I deleted the currently alarms and recreated them, which appeared to solve the problem.

So if you are still having problems with your iPhone try giving it a go, delete all alarms currently entered and recreated them.

Hope it helps.
