WordCamp, ATL

I’m attending Wordcamp this year for the first time, and it’s a nagging reminder that I haven’t actually been a user or the product for some time. I am an advocate for the product, so I need to be more involved in all aspects of its feature set. If we…Continue Reading

WordPress 2.3 Update

I’ve just successfully completed my WordPress 2.3 update. As far as WordPress updates go, this was a pretty big one. So big, in fact, that I actually followed the instructions and disabled (most) of my plugins to be sure the site worked after the update. I knew however, that disabling…Continue Reading

Spontaneous Glitches

As I was working on my post for Disney World just now, my site encountered a spontaneous glitch. As such, I’ve had to stop writing for now and work on the problem at hand. The result of the problem is that I no longer seem to be able to use…Continue Reading

Tag Problems in WP 2.1

Blast! I thought I had read that tag problems weren’t being seen using Bunny’s Technorati Tag plugin. That’s what I’m using (in lieu of the Ultimate Tag Warrior) and I’m having problems with tags. I’ll research this tonight to find out what’s going on. It’s going to suck if all…Continue Reading

Pictures are Back Online

Nobody bothered to tell me my pictures weren’t being displayed on the site any longer! You people are sleeping on the job! The problem is, I rely on Flickr’s API to show pictures here. As is clearly stated in their documentation, the API is subject to change…often. And I’m using…Continue Reading

I get a lot of comment spam with the word hentai mentioned. I get that it must be something erotic from the context, but that’s it. Sometimes it’s in the same random group of words as handjob and Asian. When did Asian become a dirty word? I’m a little afraid…Continue Reading

Big Upgrades Coming

I’m upgrading WordPress tonight – expect some unexpected behavior while things get sorted out. Looks like 2.1 has some nifty new features – features I’m sure will bite me in the ass before a patch is released to take care of things people like me discover. Oh well. I’m up…Continue Reading

WP 2.0.4 *Complete

All done! Mark – 12:31pm That’s painless enough (and slower because I got to reading some documentation instead of watching the upload status). We’re now 2.0.4 and glorious because of it! Sorry if anyone reached an error page during the 5 minutes of updates. There’s actually a more fault tolerant…Continue Reading

WP 2.0.4

And now for some site news. I’m about the upgrade to WordPress 2.0.4 as is appropriate. I’ve been running on 2.0.2 for long enough now and I’ve already done some initial testing with 2.0.4. Mark the time – 12:26pm
