Blog Troubles

This post is both blog news and a test. At present, the link system of my blog does not seem to be working right. I was doing a little work to improve my blog’s RSS feed when I accidentally deleted one critical file, which I did not have backed up. After a lot of head-scratching, I decided to upgrade my blog to WordPress 2.3.1 in order to fix the problem.


WordPress 2.3.1 is nicer than the 2.1 that I was running, but in the upgrade process something messed up, because the internal links of my blog and my footer seem to be gone. I seem to be getting some other errors as well, but they’re complex to describe.


My apologies to readers. I hope to have this fixed soon.

    Hi David, I’d highly recommend installing a standalone source control management system. I think the best free one available is Subversion (, it should work on whatever operating system your server runs on (though RCS might be a simpler option if you’re running on Linux).

    The site looks good, I hope you were able to figure out the remaining issues with WP.

    Hi there,

    I have read your blog and you have a very good post and blog. I certainly agree with your blog articles or should I say issue you are discussing. In fact, you should add more articles with regards to your subject more often so that I can come visiting to your blog.

    How often do you find new and research stuff? Are there any opportunities that I can contribute to your blog. I believe other blog readers would love to read more related stuff. This way, your PR rank for this blog will raise if more visitors are coming.

    Keep up the good work!


  3. Eddy, thanks for the interest. I’m the only one writing at my blog by design. As for posting frequency, I am at my max now. I have a family to take care of, and business as well.


David Merkel is an investment professional, and like every investment professional, he makes mistakes. David encourages you to do your own independent "due diligence" on any idea that he talks about, because he could be wrong. Nothing written here, at RealMoney, Wall Street All-Stars, or anywhere else David may write is an invitation to buy or sell any particular security; at most, David is handing out educated guesses as to what the markets may do. David is fond of saying, "The markets always find a new way to make a fool out of you," and so he encourages caution in investing. Risk control wins the game in the long run, not bold moves. Even the best strategies of the past fail, sometimes spectacularly, when you least expect it. David is not immune to that, so please understand that any past success of his will be probably be followed by failures.

Also, though David runs Aleph Investments, LLC, this blog is not a part of that business. This blog exists to educate investors, and give something back. It is not intended as advertisement for Aleph Investments; David is not soliciting business through it. When David, or a client of David's has an interest in a security mentioned, full disclosure will be given, as has been past practice for all that David does on the web. Disclosure is the breakfast of champions.

Additionally, David may occasionally write about accounting, actuarial, insurance, and tax topics, but nothing written here, at RealMoney, or anywhere else is meant to be formal "advice" in those areas. Consult a reputable professional in those areas to get personal, tailored advice that meets the specialized needs that David can have no knowledge of.
