May 2009 Floodings – Kyogle/Casino/Lismore/Northern Rivers

Some of you may’ve noticed the repotrs of flooding in Brisbane over the last few days, While most of the country has been fixated on that, The same weather has moved down the coast into the Northern Rivers, The same area which i live in, Which recieved the flooding in january 2008, Some of you may remember the flood pics i posted back then.

Well the good news is, that this year, Kyogle hasnt been hit as badly as last year, However its my understanduing that lismore may’ve been hit harder, With a top os 10.4m expected in about an hour, which is supposed to flood the CBD (By radio reports)

I’ll get a few pics up of Kyogle later this evening perhaps.

I’ve attached some graphs of the river levels in Kyogle/Wiangaree/Casino to this post, I cant seem to find any of lismore right now, i’ll investigate that later (The station is probbly under water anyway..)

It seems the casino level hasnt peaked yet, but is very close, and most people seem to be safe of the water… But like i said, More later perhaps :)

In Sydney for CeBit Australia this week; Host moved

Alright, This is just a heads up for anyone trying to get in touch with me, I’m heading down to Cebit Australia in Sydney tomorrow morning, So I’m not going to be online much most likely.

I’ve also moved this to a new host, I’m not 100% sure of how reliable it is, Hopefully it’ll be reliable enough for the time being. Speed-wise it seems OK, If anyone notices anything (aside from the Wp-cache errors the last few hours – I reset the cache directories security.. oops.) then give me a yell.

A… B… C…

Things are changing.. slowly..

  • I’m bringing my hosting back to AU, My reasoning? Well.. I wanted to support a australian host, and hope to be able to offer faster services for some other AU-targetted projects.
  • A New theme finally. This theme doesnt really allow the kind of interaction i want to give the site, I’m not wanting to just give out small topics, i want to show a few items on the front page.
  • More posting.. I need to start writing more content, I’d particually like to start writing some stuff about WordPress, About plugin authoring, How to get started in WordPress Development, How to use this or that, How to make something more efficient.. I dont know
    • I’d also like to write about non-wordpressy things too, My thoughts/opinions of things.. stuff i’m interested in, etc..
  • I’d really like to get my WordPress plugins updated again.. I think i better aim to get something out for 2.8, maybe make everything MU Compatible too if i get the chance.. now that WP includes some MU compatibility stuff..

Anyway. Hopefully i’ll update this blog before the end of next month.. worst case, I want to have this site in a form that i like by the end of June. As well as getting my other few sites up and running..

Oh, Also, I’ll probably be going to CeBit Australia, Which means a trip to sydney :) Just a FYI for those who matter :P

UPDATE: Oh, also, WTF? Overnight the pageviews spiked up to ~280… according to WP Stats.com …But… the odd part is, it only shows ~20 pageviews of anything specific, surely it cant be mis-reporting that badly? or that many front-page views…. I’ll have to check Google Analytics later on i guess :)
