I updated the WordPress engine for the blog recently and somehow the images in the recent posts couldn’t be displayed properly after that. I did a bit of searching and it was caused by a plugin so I disabled it and everything should be back to before the update now.

There are still broken images from when I migrated the site and somehow managed to mess up my media library big time. Those I’ll see about fixing them bit by bit in my spare time.

I think new update broke images again, so when I have free time later this week (which I may have scheduled a bunch of stuff), I’ll see how I can fix them.

Some updates

Lately there’s some odd behavior with the blog, such as the index page randomly going down for short time due to too many redirect.

And when I poked around the past posts a bit more, I found that a bunch of posts have broken images (or maybe they were broken since a while back but I lost track of things and forgot to fix them).

Soooo, I’ll be spending a bit more time on the blog. However, the bulk of my focus will still be on my freelance work, Twitch streaming and gaming.

Speaking of that, I took a short break for FFXIV but I also have not been updating the FFXIV.SS series, have I? Hmmm…. I’ll go pick something soon. 😀

Working on an introduction + first impression post about an online browser game named Dappervolk which is now in Closed Beta but it’s getting longer than I expected. But I’ll see about getting it out in the next few days.

I am alive! And back! 😀

Bye bye, Miku clock :(

Due to many mobile browsers and Chrome (and Vivaldi, by extension) not supporting Flash anymore, I’m removing the Miku clock on the right side-bar to avoid showing you guys the ugly blank or “not supported” rectangle. 🙁

As I’m currently way too busy, I’ll see about adding something else there in the future.

Reminder to self, don’t update the Sparkling theme to latest version (again) yet because somewhere between 1.7.7 to 1.8.1, a change in the backend caused the child theme’s previous Theme Option settings to not be used. Instead, the parent theme’s settings is being used.

The only way to fix is to downgrade the theme back to a version where the child theme settings are still used, note down what those settings are, then upgrade the parent theme, then implement those settings again. Urgh, so troublesome.

Source, although it’s for a different theme by the same theme developer, it describes the exact same problem so I’m guessing the mentioned framework is being used for Sparkling as well.

Shizu.Yue, new name, new start

Although I am a little late with this announcement…. With a brand new look and lots of changes, Apathetic Moon is now making a return as Shizu.Yue!
♪♪\(^ω^\)( /^ω^)/♪♪

I have secretly been working on this new version of the site for a while, on and off. Using Sparkling theme as base for the appearance, I customized it to retain the old color scheme that I am still extremely fond of and also to keep a sense of familiarity, but I also added 2 new color schemes for Gaming type posts and Project type posts.

For easier navigation, some content had their categories and tags changed, and the permalink structure of the posts are also different now, so I hope it won’t cause any inconvenience.

There are still a few more minor things that I wish to add or do to the site, but they can be implemented directly, so I decided to add them in the future.

In any case, welcome to Shizu.Yue. 🙂

I have been wanting to re-organize my blog so that things are more well-categorized and tagged, as well as selectively displayed.  I want to make it possible for people who wants only to read my game related posts, or things going on in my life, or cosplay related stuff (I do intend to post about them, blogging is a good way to remember stuff, actually) to be able to do so easily.

And maybe a change to the layout too, though I love this layout a lot a lot, because it’s not built to be responsive, it is starting to feel restrictive to me. If I want the post format portion of the theme to work, I have to sit down and stare at the codes for a while to fine-tune stuff and I’m just not sure when I’ll be able to do that.

As it is, I am being held back from posting random stuff by some odd logic in my head. If I reorganize, maybe I’ll have more incentive to post. Hopefully.

So it was a Sunbird nest, not a Hummingbird

Some while back I posted photos taken at the front area of my house showing a bird’s nest. Apparently it was a sunbird’s nest, not hummingbird’s. And it’s very likely the Olive-Backed Sunbird, which is pretty common in urban areas of Singapore.

Link reference: Olive-backed Sunbird (Nectarina jugularis)

The sad news is, the female bird died of unknown reason and was found hanging from its nest. 🙁 My family took it down and buried it, and the nest was left abandoned and later, on the ground. We suspected that the neighbourhood cat that occasionally came to the front area of our house to take a nap or shelter itself from rain might have something to do with the poor bird’s death, but we don’t actually know what happened.

Here’s a photo of the bird and the nest a few days before it was discovered dead.

On a brighter note of things, another sunbird seems to have taken a liking to that spot and was starting to build its nest. Though after a few days of no-show, it might have found a better spot. Well, good luck little birdie~

Finally able to post from phone!

To be fair, it’s not WordPress Android app’s fault, but I had been disappointed for so long it’s making me crazily happy.

And I just found out I could pair my PS3 keyboard with my phone. Just think of all the possibilities!

Why Apathetic Moon went missing for a few days

First, I want to apologize for the brief ‘downtime’ of Apathetic Moon. Some of you probably had a shock when it was showing some other website. Let me make a few things clear:

  1. I am not closing the website or hosting something else in place of it.
  2. Apathetic Moon did not get hacked, it did not get attack by malware.
  3. It was not an advertising attempt gone wrong.

What happened was caused by a bug in the webhosting admin thingy and it caused my website to be showing another site “Bobby Tan Original Tailor”. I actually did a bit of searching, and it seems to be a highly recommended tailor shop in Singapore. The website itself is quite nicely made, though I was not in the mood to appreciate it.

What matters, is the problem is solved and Apathetic Moon is back online again. Again, I’m really sorry to those of you who were checking out the site and couldn’t find it. Especially the ones looking for the Title Collection Guides. 🙁
