Upgraded WordPress To Version 2.9.2.

I’m losing count of the number of software upgrades that I have done for WordPress. I can’t even remember the very first version that I had downloaded and installed in my webspace and started this blog upon. Probably 1.6 or 1.7 something. I dunno.

Since then WordPress has gone leaps and bounds and they kept knocking the versions outta the ball park. Until this late afternoon I was using version 2.8.6 which was done a few months ago. If I am not mistaken, they’ve had 3 more releases since then 2.8.7 and then 2.9 and 2.9.1 before this puppy came out on Feb 15th. Today was as good a time as any to check it out and I did a quick upgrade and………I can’t make out any visible differences!

Everything looks about the same. I’m told that the only difference between v 2.9.1 and 2.9.2 is a problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors. WordPress alerts us to upgrade to 2.9.2 if we have untrusted users signed up onto the blog and have sensitive posts in the trash. But no differences that I can make out from 2.8.6 & 2.9.2.

Oh well, I hope version 3.0 is going to be well worth the wait.

Arsenal 2 Hull City 1

It took an injury time goal by Nicklas Bendtner to give Arsenal the whole 3 points and bring the club level with Chelsea on 64 points at the top of the league table. The 2-1 win was looking very improbable right until the end and Twitter updates had almost all Arsenal fans groaning that this was the kind of match that usually spell doom for the Gunners. We are so glad to be wrong.

Arsenal struck first with a typically incisive move that ended with Andrey Arshavin firing in from close range. Sol Campbell’s foul on what looked an offside Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink allowed Jimmy Bullard to fire Hull level from the penalty spot. Hull battled well after George Boateng was sent off but Bendtner fired home in injury time to give Arsenal victory.

It was a vintage performance from Arsenal and it wasn’t pretty. Doesn’t matter, we need to win the odd ugly match here and there.

Team Lunch @ Dhaba & Pizza Dinner

Today there was supposed to be a big meeting involving many levels of middle & upper management. I was preparing for it from last evening because although I wasn’t going to be participating much, my team would be and I felt that it was important. I had already gone through the same points of the meeting yesterday.

However it didn’t happen and so I tried to concentrate on other aspects of my work and got my team involved in a couple of activities as well. One of my trainers was out sick (she had a temperature of a 101 degrees) and another was out of office. A third member was caught up with something else and had an early lunch, so the remaining 5 asked me if we could go out for lunch and each pay our way. I though, why not? It might take my mind off things for a while.

I’m glad we did, because the team likes to have a little fun. This wasn’t by any means a huge event of team bonding or even a grand lunch – it was just a quick drive to a Punjabi dhaba for 6 of us and eating roti and some chicken. It was good, althought quite hot and dusty – moving trucks would rake up a ton of dust quite neat the open dhaba.

After that we went back to the office and continued with our work. I managed to complete the pending work by 7:30 and left the office to go get some coffee. On the way back home, I thought about getting some pizza for dinner. I called up the Dominos’ helpline number and ordered a Golden chicken pizza with baby corn (pictured below on the right), which I have had once almost 2 years back and that I found to be very delicious. I enjoyed the dinner in front of the tv, watching an episode of American Idol in it’s entierity for the first time this season!
