It's been a long year and its time to move on. I hoped that I would be moving qisoftware.com-- but things have not gone as planned. I am told DOJ is still working the issues.
In the meantime, I have been researching the issues with WiredPages. My recent request to have the iTunes affiliate reinstated for WiredPages was granted so -- the iTunes search widget on the Entertainment page, is again working.
I am also going to again start reporting Amazon Affiliate stats-- on this blog as well as It's Personal. I am told-- a recent ad-- placed on It's Personal- was a success [300+ units sold]- however not reflected in my stats. I am not sure why. Even more incredible-- I am given the real stats as if to taunt.
Things in disrepair on WiredPages:
- The GeoPlace widget on the Reference page.
- Congressional Rep. interface
- World Weather Tool
- Currency Converter [Dining & Travel]
- Horoscopes [Entertainment]
- Market Bug [Home & Business pages]
- CIA World Fact Book Interface [Reference]
- Dictionary Widget Slow [Reference]
I have fixes for most of the issues-- however have been hesitant about implementation because of on going problems-- documented in-- Q's Wire and It's Personal.

I noticed on Saturday, April 13th, 2013 the AP news feeds on WiredPages were working again. There was a blockage problem. I did not update code- and have explained many times-- I am not updating code until I move to a new server.
I also noticed on Saturday, the World Weather tool is no longer working though intermittently before Saturday. Again, this problem will not be corrected until I move to a new server.

Just in case there is a problem-- wanted it noted I paid this invoice for qisoftware.com web hosting to DailyRazor today via my PayPal account.
Here is the online transaction record from my PayPal account.
Normally, PayPal is good about sending right away a receipt indicating I made the payment. Today, for whatever reason I did not get the email confirmation.
One of the earpiece threats lately- close qisoftware.com. If this does happen I will blog at blog.hosting-q.com to provide details. PayPal part of the settlement process I discuss a great deal in my personal blog- taht said I am sure there is no connection to this delay in the confirmation email.
The support ticket I opened 11.26.12 after receiving a suspension notice.
Update: 11.29.12 Payment applied- 11.27.12. I have not been online for a couple of days so this update a little late. Busy-- telling Robert Hale why Heidi looks german. No other news to report.

This morning I ran tests on my local version of the World Weather Tool. I know I said I was not doing this- but wanted to check into it anyway. Works fine. Here are some screen grabs.
The malfunction of this application online appears to be because someone has installed a version other than mine. Yes, when I first noticed this problem I did reinstall the associated applet and servlet files-- however at the time it did not work. I was sure I cleared my applet buffers just in case. Tampering with my files is unauthorized and I have asked the proper authorities to look into it- over and over.

Overnight the AP News interfaces installed on several WiredPages along with the World Weather Tool on the homepage-- went into disrepair. In that I want to move qisoftware.com to a dedicated server sometime in the future-- I have decided to allow things like this to go for now.
Why keep the site online if I am planning to do this? As I have indicated before-- I do plan on revamping the entire news service however I am not interested in writing or updating code for an IP that I will discontinue using sometime in the future. My code is tied to IPs and domains to prevent others from using it. Updating code at this time would be a stupid security mistake on my part and I have decided to let it go for now.
FYI-- Limited updates will be tested offline and be readied for online production when I get the sites moved. I repeat limited.

The Amazon interface I use on some of the WiredPages and my personal blog [It's Personal], is timing out on its current host. I have seen this problem before, meaning there is nothing wrong with my software nor my API-KEY.
The interface is hosted on my web hosting site-- hosting-q.com. When this has happened in the past with other interfaces, I have opted out of moving the problem interface to qisoftware.com where it would more than likely work since it is working in local mode. The screen grab below shows the tests I ran this morning to find the problem.
There was no problem. I have no plans to change the interface, its hosting location nor the pages that use the interface. What this means for visitors? You will probably notice some slow down on page loading and the absence of the interface or a traceback-- depending on how your browser is configured. Hope that my web hosts and others correct their issues shortly.
DOJ/FBI fraud issue still on the table.
Update 09.11.12: Working again.
