Stupid Spammers

I think this is the first time I’ve noticed an error like this in my blog spam; emphasis mine: I just wanted to stop in and say how-do-you-do to everyone. I wanted to acquaint myself, my name is Ashley. Hello all, my name is Keith.how-do-you-do to all, I am recent here and my name is […]

My First Theme

As you may have noticed, I popped in a new theme a couple days ago. The code is based on Ian Stewart’s “How To Create a WordPress Theme: The Ultimate WordPress Theme Tutorial“, which I highly recommend. I’ve hacked up the code and had a lot of tedious fun sorting out the CSS ordering dependencies. Don’t […]

Upgrade to WordPress 2.8.1

I just upgraded Isotropic to WordPress 2.8.1 from 2.7.1. I backed up the database, rsync’d my site to my local disk, and clicked the Upgrade button. All of that took less that five minutes. Very slick.

I’ve never been to Spain …

… but Live Search apparently thinks Isotropic lives there — almost all my pages appear to be tagged region “es” instead of “us”. Sigh.

Yes, I’m still alive, but kinda busy. I’m way behind on personal email, life maintenence, etc., so I’ve not really thought about posting lately. Just to keep on the radar, I thought I’d mention a couple old posts. VMware Server 1.08 on Fedora 9 is by far my most popular post; mostly searches looking for […]

FeedBurner Links

Oh, I forgot about the FeedBurner updates…. By February 28th, all FeedBurner accounts should have been moved to Google accounts. The main FeedBurner site has changed from feedburner.com to feedburner.google.com, but subscriptions and such should continue to work indefinitely with the old addresses. However, it would be wise to convert when you get a chance […]

Random Posts

I’ve added a random post link to the bar at the top of the page. Yawn. Other than that I’ve been too lazy to do anything else.

Tag Cloud Page

The tag cloud was getting bloated, so I’ve cut the count back to the default (45) and have set up a separate Tag Cloud page that displays all the tags.

Upgrade to WordPress 2.6.3

I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.6.3. It was relatively simple — just scp the files class-snoopy.php and version.php into the wp-includes directory. The upgrade to 2.7 is due November 10th, but I’ll postpone upgrading until we hear back from the trenches. Previous upgrade: 2.6.2.
