WAHOO broke my website

Reading Time: 2 minutes

WAHOO KICKR3 new KICKR v3 2017 detailed reviewBefore DCR released his review of the Edge 1030, WAHOO KICKR and KICKR CLIMB, all of which I knew were coming, I sent him a tongue-in-cheek tweet that his hit counter might break as I also thought there would be quite a few more announcements at the same time.

These look to be a week away (see one of the next posts).

So imagine my embarrassment when my site broke today 🙁 I blame the WAHOO KICKR 17 review. I think that’s the first time that my site has ever properly broken (apologies to all…I must have finally got my readership into double figures). I had migrated the site in January this year to an ‘unlimited’ business-grade hosting package. But found out at lunch time (after the crash) that the unlimited bit was disk space and not CPU. Grrrrr. Does anyone know about disabling wordpress CRON jobs? No, neither do I.

Alanis Morissette would no doubt have had the wisdom to pen some little ditty about the irony of it all. Talking of ironic, I suppose that leads nicely into the Fitbit Ionic, iconic (maybe), laconic, or other ‘near rhyming’ thing.
I quite like the FITBIT Ionic name, the features look mostly impressive but most of the variants look aesthetically displeasing. It’ll get lots of upgrading customers but few switchers. At best it will buy Fitbit some time to make something else.

to disable crons on wp:
insert below line with “define(‚DB_COLLATE‘, “);”
define(‘DISABLE_WP_CRON’, true);

you need to trigger the cron tasks from normal server cron:
wget -q -O – http://xxx.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron

/dev/null 2>&1

blimey…ask and it shall come (or whatever the phrase is)
thank you


If you have no experience with setting up cron jobs on servers, you can do it with my plugin:
