How sad

My site has finally dropped off Google. Hits to my site have dwindled to almost nothing. I am back to square one. Oh well. I guess I'll work my way back up eventually. I'm sure google won't take that long to increase my rankings for such search terms as MacGyver DVD, care bear quizzes, creative cockroach control and the like. Although I will need to be linked to from other sites, so anyone that reads my blog can you please update your links?

While I'm at it, I should have a rant about Coldfusion. It has to be the dodgiest piece of software I've ever used. Every single time we've done an upgrade, things have gone wrong. This time, it refuses to talk to access databases. SQL databases are fine. Go figure. There's next to no help available online for the specific errors that I'm getting.. for example within the coldfusion administrator under Data Sources, it lists all the datasources, then at the bottom has this error:

Element ISJ2EE is undefined in DS

which of course has a grand total of two links in google (actually just subsequent posts in the one forum). After stuffing around with it for ages, and eventually getting it to the point where coldfusion pages weren't even being served anymore, I gave up and rebooted the server. At least we're back to where we were this morning.

My link to you was updated, erm, yesterday I think. Though, at time of writing, that's probably the day before yesterday for you. Life would be so much simpler if the world were flat.

Hey dont worry your still on google. I was searching for the artist Nina Jane being dropped from her record label. Obviously I spent her name wrong and it's a totally different person who I guess is 2 years old now. Here's the google link btw.
