I used to think I wasn’t very creative. I always found it odd when people told me I was creative (like when I’d build something out of a random pile of legos). I appreciate the compliment, but didn’t necessarily understand it.
I have always wanted to be creative… Someday I would love to write a book our draw or paint some really cool artwork, or learn how to play an instrument, or something else that’s creative…
It just seems they every time I try I either freeze up or i’m not ever content with my effort so I give up before I even get started… I tell myself “it’s ok, i’m just not the creative type”.
But is that true? Am I really not they creative? What about all those times people have said I was creative? Were they just trying to make me feel good about myself?
Maybe i’m just “accidentally creative” every now and then?
Or maybe I am creative and i’m just self defeating?
I really don’t know the answer, but I hope some day I’ll figure it out…
I wonder if anyone else feels this way…

So I noticed yesterday that a newer version of WordPress was available. I clicked on the upgrade link and proceeded as usual until I was presented with the following error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2515174 bytes) in /var/www/usr/htdocs/wordpress/wp-includes/http.php on line 1327
This appeared very odd to me at first… 33,554,432 bytes allowed, but when it attempted to allocate only 2,515,174 bytes it caused a fatal error? Well as strange as that looks, there’s an easy fix…
(note, I assume you already backed up your DB and existing wordpress installation — proceed at your own risk)
To Fix*: (assuming you want to use the auto-upgrade feature still and not a manual upgrade)
Open your existing wp-config.php file in a text editor of your choice (note: if your blog is hosted on your computer you can just open the file and save it when you’re done, if your blog is hosted on an external server like mine is, you’ll probably need to FTP or SSH in, retrieve a copy, edit, then upload the new version).
Scroll down to almost the end of the file and you should see a comment that looks like this:
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
you want to put the code in step 3 just above this comment.
Insert the following line of code on it’s own line (mine is on line 67):
Save the file (and be sure to upload the new copy if you have an external host).
Go back to your dashboard, click the upgrade link, and proceed as normal.
