West Side of Portland 4th of July Fireworks party

Come join us for our annual 4th of July party. This time, we are celebrating above North Plains, Oregon, Saturday, 8PM. Bring potluck and something to drink and join us on the deck or lawn to watch the beautiful fireworks going off in the valley below, including North Plains, Cornelius, Forest Grove, Gaston, and parts in between. It's a fun and relaxing evening with great people. There is a grill, kitchen, and good fun and conversation.

We'd love to have you join us. Let me know and I'll send you the address and contact info.

Thanks!

Is your site on dewaporn?

Type the url of your site followed immediately by dewaporn.com to see if it has been scraped.

http://example.com.dewaporn.com/#

If it has, we need to work together to stop this criminal site. I've found thousands and thousands of your sites scraped or redirected by them. Anyone with information on how to stop this, please help.

And please share. It will take all of us to bring these creeps down.

So how do we know if our content has been scraped or not? What are we supposed to see or not see when we type in the URL you suggested?

And, if our content has been scraped, how can we find it?

Westside PDX WordPress Meetup June 30 Tuesday!

6:30PM Beaverton Community Center, we will be gathering and helping each other with our WordPress issues. Signs will be out on tables to group together those interested in getting help and helping with specific WordPress issues. RSVP now to get a spot as the size of the room limits our numbers a bit. Plenty of room but ensure a seat.

Bring laptops, batteries, mice, cords, cables, snacks, sodas, and your passwords to EVERYTHING to ensure you can get the help you need.

Going to be so much fun! Thanks for spreading the word!

The most famous precious opal in the US comes from Virgin Valley in Humboldt County, Nevada. Petrified tree trunks buried in volcanic tuffs have developed opals with gorgeous play of color. In this specimen, white common opal infills large holes, while…

It happens to thousands of people each day: for some mysterious reason, their website –maybe a WordPress or Drupal site- has become very slow...
