Just a quick note that my friend John Painter has jumped into the blogging pool. I am amazed at his knowledge of fashion. You will be too. Feel free to visit his blog. I’ve also listed it in the blogroll.
I like the WordPress app for the iPhone so much, I decided to sign up to beta test the upcoming versions.
This is beta version 1.4, and this is the first test post to a blog. Though this won’t be a daily entry, I will be creating a catergory for it.
I just read a bulletin that claim that WordPress blogs are under attack. So I upgraded again, even though I was putting it off for weeks. Everything seems to be okay now.
Now running 2.8.4
I upgraded to the latest version of WordPress (2.8.2). I put it off for as long as I could, considering the problem I had with the previous upgrade.
I’ll tackle my other WP blog (Whispers) a little later.
I’ve been using the WordPress app for the iPhone for the past few days to post. It’s pretty remarkable. It definitely makes it easier to write at the spur of the moment (once you grow accustomed to using a small keyboard).
Because of the small typing area, I downloaded another app called The Thumb, which has improved my speed and accuracy in typing with one finger but there is no horizontal mode… This means if you’re older than 13, your thumbs literally cover the entire keyboard.
Anyway, the WordPress app is great for jotting something down quickly or responding to comments or editing previous posts. It could use a little improvement but it’s a fine product.
Just when everthing seems to be running smoothly, I noticed that there’s a new version of WordPress. It’s version 2.8.1. I am hesitant to upgrade given my previous experience, but that was with the auto-update. I’ll have to do it manually even though it takes longer.
I’ll have to wait until I have some free time. Not sure what the advantages are… If any. 🙁
After spending some time,… not blogging … I have returned. So much has happened in my absence. Looks like the Democrats have started to move toward progress, and the Republicans are maintaining the status quo.
Every Freaking! Day with Rachell Ray: An Unauthorized Parody by Elizabeth Hilts has been released and is on sale NOW! In paperback even!
The Superbowl Champion Giants beat the Patriots… again, even though it was only pre-season, and the Giants have their first official season game Thursday against Washington.
I’ve seen a bunch of movies, including Tropic Thunder, and will tell you about them later this week.
Also, I noticed yesterday that Google has come out with a web browser (Chrome). Only for Windows machines at present. This comic will explain what makes chrome different other been being open source.
I know, I know,…. it has been a while since my last post, and I promise to correct this, but I figured I would let you know that WordPress has been upgraded to a new version. You can read about it it here.
So I’m crusin’ Twitter (not that I’m a subscriber – it’s a long story) and I notice all these references to Dr. Horrible. My search for it, eventually got me to the Dr. Horrible website. What a treat!!!

What a treat!!! It’s from Joss Whedon, who created Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. It’s starring Neil Patrick Harris and others you know.
What we have here is a pure Internet show. It’s not on TV (but it is TV). It’s not theater (but it is theater – in the Little Shop of Horrors genre). Please, please go to the website to see the episodes, but for those of you who need to see a sample first, here’s the preview:
If you really enjoy it, you can download the episodes at iTunes.
WordPress has just released version 2.6. I haven’t downloaded and installed it yet, but here’s a video of some of the changes:
Admittedly it looks to benefit the blog authors, but that, indirectly, effects the readers as well. You can find out a lot more about WordPress on their blog, as well as their website.
I’ll probably upgrade over the weekend.
