I have just thought of something useful i can do over the holidays: upgrade WordPress and investigate K2.
Something really important is to get the OpenID commenting working again, however i have to do that, even if i have to say “please log in with OpenID before making a comment”. K2 looks great, but i’ve just seen there is a brand new 2.5 preview of WordPress which might be worth a go. It talks about one-click plugin upgrades which is something i really wanted from K2. I’ll have a play and see what works best!
I am in a distinctly holiday mood! Once i leave work today i am off for five days until Tuesday! :)
Not doing anything special, just taking some time to relax. I will try to avoid Winchester city centre if at all possible whilst people are re-enacting the murder of Jesus. That sounds rather gruesome to me.
I just saw this interview with Grace Hopper, one of the first ever computer programmers, and developer of the first compiler. What a fantastic role model.
– “So how did you know so much about computers?”
– “I didn’t! It was the first one!”
The new place of choice seems to be InsaneJournal, which appears to me to be an excellent choice. I would also re-iterate my endorsement of WordPress, either hosted on wordpress.com (easy peasy) or hosted yourself by downloading from wordpress.org (harder but very rewarding!).
