WordPress not showing uploaded media / images on IIS

May 2nd, 2023|Categories: Chocolate Bourdain|

I recently moved all my websites to Azure (don't judge.. they gave me a really good deal lol). Anyway when I tried to add pictures to a new Wordpress post, they wouldn't appear. The small preview images, or thumbnails, were working fine (in the media library) but no such luck on the websites. Solution: Apparently  when uploading files the server first saves them in a temporary folder before moving them to the right folder within the website's content. The issue was that the server user had limited access to the temporary folder, so all files going through it had the same limited access. I gave the server user more access to modify the files (though I'm not sure if read-only access would have been enough), and now all uploaded files have better access for the server user, making them visible on the website.

My hitlist for stuff to do in Puerto Rico

October 7th, 2019|Categories: Caribbean Exploration, Chocolate Bourdain, Travel Tips|

So now that I'm on year 4 of my 3 month vacation to Puerto Rico, I've had a ton of friends visit and even more curious people asking me about what to do on the island on a trip (I'll probably do a re-location post one of these days as well). This list reflects my opinion and honestly,  you might run into me on many occasions especially nightlife related activities... I'll grow up next year ;) haha This is a straight up copy and paste from a recent request that somehow I just kept typing! here we go: Authentic food - This restaurant named Orozco which is probably walking distance from where’re you’re staying (if you're staying in Condado), is my go to. Check out Atabey (also close by) for a good breakfast or lunch. Chill people you can tell them I sent you lol. For sure you guys [...]

What countries can you go to with a Jamaican pasport

March 16th, 2018|Categories: Asia Trip, Caribbean Exploration, Chocolate Bourdain, Culture, Euro Trip, USA|

For quite a while I've had a Jamaican passport. Having a US Resident Card (green card) is great for living and working in the United Sates but you're quickly reminded your are still Jamaican when you want to make a spontaneous trip. The Formalities and paperwork involved with obtaining a visa for many countries, coupled with the having to find the appropriate consulates might be a deterrent, but fear not young yardie! Here are a list of countries you can go to RIGHT NOW without a visa. And if it makes you feel any better, some of them require Visas for US Citizens as well ;) Visa Free Visa on arrival eVisa Visa available both on arrival or online Country Stay Duration Antigua & Barbuda 6 Months Argentina 90 Days Armenia 120 Days* Azerbaijan 30 Days Bahamas 6 Months* Bahrain * Bangladesh Barbados 6 Months Belize 6 [...]

I just went the doctor… On my phone!

March 10th, 2018|Categories: Future Thinking, Technology|

So I'm finally back in my happy place. This little island called Puerto Rico (it's surrounded by water apparently). But there's a problem. My doctor (cardiologist to be specific) is MIA like the other 6% of the population that left after the hurricane and this sedentary, avocado loving black 30something needs his pills! Now I could play the insurance game and go to the ER so that I would be covered down here since I'm still under my Florida insurance (I told Florida Blue insurance company to go and fuck themselves.. More on that one day). Now hypertension is not something to be played with, but neither is my time. I tried googling "online prescriptions" and found the root of the worlds drug problem haha.. just kidding but WOW the internet has some shady places.  I could call a few friends who are doctors and have them shoot me a [...]

The birth of plurtopia

February 24th, 2018|Categories: Marketing, Partytime|

#currentsituation Ocean Park - Puerto Rico Ever since I've remembered myself, I have always been a massive fan of Electronic music. Sure I'm also a massive fan of dancehall and Reggae but that doesn't take away from my EDM passion. I've been to electronic music festivals around the world and have the privilege of calling some pretty relevant DJs my friends. In fact, in 2017 my colleagues and I staged our own music festival in Miami, Florida called Electric Karnival. But more on that another time. In the EDM World PLUR stands for Peace, Love, Unity and Respect. It's a world where everybody's kinda friendly, language is irrelevant and vibes are plentiful. In the United States in particular, the electronic music scene has become coupled with a cosplay-like scene, where people dress in costumes depicting their favorite characters as well as exchanging home made jewelry affectionately called "Kandi". For quite [...]
