Thelonious

Even though it seems no one writes anymore, I took the time to upgrade our platform to WordPress version 3 – Thelonious. Improved stability, more features, shiny new interface and so forth are some of the key elements of this upgrade.

Hopefully somebody will use it.

Code is HPoetry

Kick off.

I guess tomorrow is the official kick off for what is surely going to be a lot of wedding planning. Wish us luck. We’re going venue scouting! We’ve just started thinking about this properly the past few weeks or so, and already, I’m realising this is a pretty hefty event to pull off… I mean, this is the one day in your life where you want everything to be just perfect. Nothing ever is though, so trying to come as close as possible will have to do. I shall keep you all posted.

We passed 100 registered readers on this blog yesterday by the way. Congratulations. Visitor numbers have gone down the past three months, hopefully we’ll get them back up with Eyal’s new strategy of increased activity. Hope you all are doing well. We would love to get more comments though…

Signing off.

Dying?

Is the blog dying?

Where is everybody? I wonder what you are all doing. Are we all so happy that we have no inspiration to write anything?

still Here P.

Maintenance

I have begun working on a new look for the page, taking advantage of some of the recent years development in XML / AJAX technology. However, I am unsure as to which design direction we should take.. I think I’m aiming for a clean “classic” look, but I also have some ideas for more “modern” sites… what do you think? We can easily revert back to the old look if we want, as all settings are stored in the system. Let me know!

Maintenance.

We have upgraded our core to WP 2.8 now. The database has also been backed up (which it is every month) and some minor cosmetical upgrades have been made to our theme.

We are currently having problems with our Akismet, but I suspect this will be straightened out very soon.
That is all.

H out.

He did it again!

Just as you were getting used to the updated WordPress layout of the admin panel, Hans goes abouts and updates it again. We are now running version 2.7.1 which is the latest official release. This update provides the biggest change of the admin panel in WP history as well as major improvements to the core files. Improved support for additional widgets, plugins and the ability to interface out to other platforms is one of the key features. Improved search engine optimization as well as improved in-site searching are also things that might come in handy.

From now on, there are two features I would like everyone to take notice of and please use! (This is not mandatory, but as our DB grows, will make the blog easier to search as well easier to promote). Whenever you write a post, look to your right, just above the categories list. There you will see a frame with the headline “Tags”. It would be cool if we all could start using this feature. Basically, just type in a few keywords that match what you are writing about for that particular post, or click on the link that says “choose from the most popular tags” to select tags used before.

The other thing is that at the very bottom of all the options for each post (bottom of middle column) there is something called “All in One SEO Pack” which is pretty self explanatory, but again, I would be most happy if you could take the time to fill out. At least a few simple keywords. Nothing fancy is needed.

Anyhow, that was todays tech talk. How are you guys? Haven’t read or heard from you in a while now. Hope you are doing well with whatever you are up to at the moment. Signhild and me are off to Liverpool on Wednesday and we will stay there until Sunday the 1st. I am looking forward to it!

again, tHe Programmer.
