Upgrading the Oracle

Playing around with WordPress 1.5 on my local and work machines convinced me that it was about time to upgrade. So, this morning, before you got up, I did. It took almost ten minutes (my pipe must have been slow this morning).

WordPress 1.5 has lots of nifty new features, including managing non-post pages in the same UI as everything else. I have my bio and cycling statistics up now. There’s more to come, including bringing in all the entries from the previous site. Those gaps in the month sidebar will be filled in soon.

In addition, I’m going to have to do something about this theme. While it is beautiful, I’ve never been the kind of person satisfied by having the same look as a hundred thousand other sites out there. Maybe I’ll have to find a way to Kubrickr to work with my own photos.

Going to Fray Days (4, 5, 6, 7, and allowed me to meet many of the early A Listers that I’d been reading, including Derek Powazek, the nicest most positive guy I’ve ever met. Many of them had heard of me, some of them even read my ridiculous little site. The blogosphere was a much tighter knit place back then. […]

[…] There have been a couple of month-long or multi-month hiatuses here since then (and the archives here are incomplete, since I haven’t moved all of my 2001 – 2005 archives across from the old flat file system I used before I installed WordPress here almost two years ago), but I’ve been here fairly consistently over the last eight years. I’ll be sifting through the archives (and the flatfile archives locally) and trimming back the archive to the juiciest, most awesome posts. Once in a while we have to do some house cleaning, right?
