stated my desire to change my bio that I have posted on a page here. But I couldn’t get round to it and even when I had spare time, I was lazy and preferred to watch dvds. Well today, since we have a day off for Christmas, I sat down in the late afternoon and rewrote it.
It was back on the 6th of Dec that I had
I took people’s advice and tried to create a ‘stage wise’ bio, thinking of eras in my life and letting you know something about it. I hope this gives you a clearer picture of the man behind the blog. It’s not completed; I’d say it 95% done. It just needs a few more details. Check it out and let me know if you liked it.
Winger had a few years of success before disbanding for almost 14 years and then coming out with their fourth album. But back in 1993 they had released Pull which, althoug did not do well commercially, is what I think their best effort. From that album here’s Down Incognito; cool video eh?
At the rate that the good ole folks down at WordPress are going, we’ll be upgrading WordPress version every other week. I had moved to WordPress 2.6.2in October and then to version 2.6.3 in November and no sooner did I get used to that when they started announcing that there was a new version, 2.6.8 or something. “How many times were they going to do this?”, I though to myself.
Well, pretty soon after that I saw the link that was letting me know that they had an even newer version out – 2.7 or “Coltrane” as they had nicknamed it. I’ve downloaded it & upgraded (???) my blog software. It has an entirely new looking interface which is cool, except that its mostly grey in colour. They’ve used user feedback and changed the design and it does seem more user friendly. They promise it will be quicker and it’s proven to be that so far as I can tell.
Coolest things is the new dashboard that you can arrange with drag and drop to put the things most important to you on top, QuickPress, comment threading, paging, and the ability to reply to comments from your dashboard, the ability to install any plugin directly from WordPress.org with a single click, and sticky posts.
And they also promise that this may be the ” last time you ever have to manually upgrade WordPress again.” The new WordPress “includes a built-in upgrade that will automatically notify you of new releases, and when you’re ready it will download them, install them, and upgrade your blog with a single click.” Wow! I love you guy if that comes to fruition. We’ll I love you guys anyway cause WordPress is the best.
So what do I have in store for me this Christmas day, you ask?
- Wake up lazy and drink coffee all morning and have toast fror breakfast
- Celebrate this day by listening to Black Metal (anti-Christianity) music first thing in the morning
- Download and install WordPress 2.7 or Coltrane as the company has named it
- Chicken & rice for lunch
- Mp3s blasting all day long
- Watching The Dark Night in the afternoon
- Reading blogs that I love
- More coffee
Not too shabby by any standards, I’ll say. So enjoy your day with the family dear reader on this day to commemorate a non-existent son of a non-existent christian god!
