Remember this one? AdRotate flashback!

Remember this one? The very first version of AdRotate.

I’ve been doing some stuff on my blog and found this image from 2008. Not only does the dashboard look like crap, but there are no features either…

Just the adcode, asset picker and a group selector. AdRotate has come a long way since then 🙂

Mud, everywhere!

Mangroves, you’ll find them everywhere in the Philippines and in many places the people are very proud of them. “To protect the coast line” they’ll say. And there’ll be some vague protection group that charges tourists an entry fee. A bunch of mangroves I saw have a sort of boardwalk built into them. Some are really nice to walk through.

We’re going down!

Yea, that’s my hotel burning… Back in March. Apparently someone knocked over a candle which set a 140 houses ablaze, including parts of the hotel I was staying in. One of the more scarier nights in recent times.

Fish ponds

You’ll see these in a bunch of places, scattered on most islands in the Philippines. One to two feet deep, and full of fish or crab. These are on the south coast of Panay in the Philippines.

AdRotate Free 3.15.6 – Maintenance update

logo-512x512A update today, enhancing the view of the update banner to make it more clear you need to click that thing. Some dashboard tweaks and minor improvements to the plugin.

From AdRotate Settings you can now run the updater manually should the banner fail. Ideally you never use or need this thing. However, somehow people seem to update without updating which causes problems. This button will help remedy that trouble.

Changes

  • [new] Manually run internal updater from maintenance
  • [change] Dashboard tweaks
  • [change] More distinct style for update banner and button

Such a beach

I borrowed this hammock for a bit. I’m not sure if it was allowed. But then, this is the Philippines, nobody cares for anything. A nice view, a hot day. Time for a nap.

A beach with a twist

In ‘developed’ countries people pay a premium to put shells like this on a shelf or table as decoration. Perhaps a bowl of shells somewhere in the living room. Here in the Philippines people eat the contents and discard the shells because there are tons of them lying on so many beaches.

AdRotate Pro 4.0.1 – Available now

logo-512x512A small update today, improving the layout of the update banner to make it more obvious something needs to happen. Some other tweaks are made to the dashboard as well.

From AdRotate Settings you can now run the updater manually should the banner fail. Normally you won’t use or need this thing, but somehow people update without updating which causes trouble for some newer versions. This button will help remedy that trouble.

Something personal

The past few weeks have been a bit of a mess of things and I haven’t really been able to focus on development much. In a nutshell; I broke up with my girlfriend, I’ve been sick/ill regularly with all kinds of crap and the lack of feedback on the 4.0 update wasn’t very encouraging, too 🙁
I’m trying hard to get myself together and will be back on track with more feature packed updates, hopefully, soon.

Office of the day

Sometimes I find a spot, with a ocean view. This was in a nice resort a while ago. It just felt good to sit there for work for a few hours per day. Jungle life in the background. Making them updates!

The great server migration – Upgrades!

Sunday and yesterday I finally made the move to a new server which apparently is bigger and better than anything before.

This abrupt move was made to future proof the security of the overall system. Prompted by Paypal and Stripe their efforts to upgrade security protocols. A thing the old server didn’t support the newer versions of. I can now handle TLS1.2 encryption and all that modern stuff, required for creditcard payments. Some upgrades like newer PHP and MySQL servers have been made along the way too.

All services, including AdRotate Geo and the update API were affected. I missed a day of sales, too. But everything seems to be working again.

If you run into trouble with something on the site, let me know via the contact form. Please describe what’s not working and any errors you see. I’ll get right on it 🙂

If you find something wrong or something is not working as it should simply post a bug report on the forum with your findings and relevant information.

Highways in the Philippines

Not all highways are paved. And many turn into a muddy mess when it rains. That doesn’t deter the bus drivers to drive over 60 kilometers per hour on them.
