So as per my last post, I’ve been playing around with my weblog a bit. I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.7, which features a completely overhauled administration dashboard. In addition, threaded comments are now built into WordPress, so there’s no need for a plugin. I just needed to hack my theme a little bit to take Read more about Upgraded to WordPress 2.7[…]
The list of categories on my weblog was slowly growing. So I overhauled them. I’ve reduced them to a set of six, and converted the others to tags. I noticed that, for a long time now, when it comes to publishing an article, I’ve been fighting the urge to add a new category. Now I Read more about Re-organised weblog categories[…]

I’m continuing to fiddle with this weblog in whatever spare time I have. Just think, in the cumulative time I’ve spent blogging and stuffing around with this website, I probably could have built a small house. Anyway, I’ve added an “About” page and a “Disclaimer” page, the latter being about as useful as a lawyer Read more about The changes continue[…]
