October FlockUpdate + Cancer Update

Show Notes:

  • Church Hosting + Shared Hosting Update – Looking good! If you haven’t read up on it:
  • Looking good on the realm of stable, but if you are having any problems/concerns please let me know by opening a ticket – LiveChat is not a great way to get support always – so please open a ticket.
  • WordPress PHP Upgrades – Default is 5.6 thus the warning, if you are needing a newer build before the January 1, 2020, move to PHP 7 – you can use the MultiPHP -or- Select PHP Version – For most MultiPHP is perfect, quick and easy to change the version but if you need older hardened versions do use the Select PHP Version.
  • Free Service – UpdateWord.press a free service in which I can help keep your site a bit more safe, secure and updated. Interested? Search for the plugin “InfiniteWP”, install it, then copy the details to a ticket and I’ll get you added in! You’ll be set!
  • MX Guard Dog Ready for Noah, Going Live Monday on Lilly! Need filtering? Read up here.
  • Update your Contact Information (https://secure.flockhosting.com) – Update your T-Shirt Size, and you may find yourself getting something in the mail, as I have some shirts to give away 🙂
  • Giving Options – Again I don’t put this to get folks to give, but I get this because I get so many random emails – so figure update things if you want to give, you are welcome to just visit https://crowd.flockhosting.com for all the options.

Cancer Update

Spoken is easier to follow vs. typing up – Scroll to about 12-minute mark and listen on – short version? Progress! God is Good! Coming up on 3/6 of a new treatment plan and positive God is doing good things! More updates to follow, listen on for updates!

The FlockUpdate-ish.

Greetings FlockHosters!

This 2019 has been a crazy one so let’s go with the things going on which are good before we get to the singular big bad thing.

  • Nginx + Upgrades – We have some minor performance issues on the current build-out of the server stack, cPanel does a good job, but we’ve had a number of attacks which have brought servers to their knees. So more adjustments are going in, but Nginx is improving overall load times and load time scores so all servers should have these updates completed in the next few weeks.
  • Website Design – Coming soon still, this was pushed back a little, but I wanted to let folks know if you are looking for a design for your site, it’s coming soon, BUT you can email me directly if you are looking for a rough quote on the work you desire to be done.
  • Custom Projects – Now this is one that’s going to soon be an option on the site but many have asked how to get information on a custom quote/project pricing, and the easiest way I’ve done this lately is the contact form, just leave some details and we can work out the plan – Already have helped a local Christian Station online with not only hosting, but now serving their online station radio! So I can meet most needs!

So that’s good! Sadly there is some bad, and I’m going to keep it brief and get straight to the point. 2 weeks ago after months in discomfort with back pain and really just feeling poorly I’ve been diagnosed with Esophagus Cancer – Stage 3. To better let me explain vs. many paragraphs here’s a 30-minute update from Me on Me.

What can I do?! I mention in the post the key thing I desire? Prayer. I don’t mind if you feel led to do more, giving you can do through the crowdfund site every little bit helps, I appreciate emails & letters all of that can be found on the communicate page – also the scheduling forgot to mention that some windows are closed off for treatments – but please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email, shoot a text, follow my private accounts on social+blog (IG, FB, TW, Blog)

Those of you have already given thank you so much for being amazing! Those of you who are saying “I want to, but ______” stop right there, bow your head and I say thank you! Giving something is not required at all, my mantra in all of this!

I’ll be checking in on social media now and again and hopefully in 6 weeks we’ll here is all gone, and that God, not me is victorious God is good and I hope you all had an amazing Easter and have an amazing week!
