You’re A Failure As A Human Being

A few things going on:

  • Jerry Falwell died yesterday. I am not sure how I feel. Mainly, I guess, I just don’t care. Is that apathy? With a man who bred so much hate, it’s hard to be sympathetic, right now or even at all. Now is the time for Jerry to be seriously judged. I’d pay money for front row seats. Spiderman 3 got nothing on this. Even if the money went to the church. Now I get the bumper sticker, “Jesus Died For Your Sins” – Your really meant Jerry Falwell’s. I bet it was just a font issue with the bumper sticker company so they had to make a compromise to fit it all in.
  • WordPress 2.2 has been released. Nothing huge to speak of, but it does seem like a few of the admin menus load significantly faster than before. This upgrade is called “Getz” – So you better getz it soon. Major improvements are the inclusion of WordPress Widgetsin the core, Full Atom Support, a new Blogger import and Infinite Comment Stream.
  • Multivitamin Use May Raise Prostate Cancer Risk – Can we just stop with the terrifying sensationalist medical reports that seem to change their view every time President Bush mispronounces a word?! For real, yo.
  • We went to Ocean City, MD last week spontaneously as we realized it would be the last vacation as us two. Pictures are here.
  • Emily has not had the baby. She’s due in about 10 days – one day before her birthday. We’ll keep you all posted, I promise. What about the baby?!

WordPress 1.5 “Strayhorn”

Well, the long awaited WordPress 1.5 is out. They skipped 1.3 and 1.4. Not sure why. But I just clicked on that link and will copy some of the reasons:

  • Even numbers are soooo 2004
  • 2 + 3 = 5 (who can argue with that?)
  • They released 1.3 without telling us
  • They’re switching to letters (WordPress XP, WordPress CS, WordPress MX)
  • They’re switching to years (WordPress 2004, WordPress 2005…)

Those WordPress programmer people are funny.

But the upgrade happened yesterday here. You probably didn’t even notice, unless you got a few SQL errors yesterday around 4pm. It went pretty seamlessly and most of my plugins are still working. I do have to still fix one of them. Other than a minor problem with one plugin we’re rocking. And it might be a tad faster, however I have not noticed much of a difference in terms of speed and loading times.

Actually, I am kinda suprised I am even talking about this as Eric and Mike are probably the only ones who care. Maybe David. But he wrote his journal software. Such is life. Hell, I dont even think I’ve ever really talked about WordPress here. Most of my friends have livejournals anyways. But it’s a great Content Management System that works wonders for people who have journals they write in regularly.
