Sometime next week, WordPress 2.5 is supposed to drop.
Being the compulsive tinkerer that I am, will I upgrade that day?
Is the sky blue?
I don’t know, really, what’s new with 2.5, beyond a completely different backend interface. I’ve heard horror stories that it’s been taken out back and beaten with the fugly stick. It’s entirely possible that I won’t like it. Who knows? Maybe if it is that hideous, I’ll start blogging with Flock on a regular basis.
And to be honest, I have some concerns with the layout I’m using. Hemingway was written for a different era of WordPress, and while I’ve no doubt that if there’s some coding issue I’ll be able to figure it out, puzzling out the code that’s not working right isn’t exactly fun and games.
Yet I’m not worried about things like losing the tag list code I cobbled together last week; I pulled it out of my modified categories-template.php file and put it into its own Sidebar Tag Plugin instead.
See? This is why I use WordPress. Because I have to tinker. Code, it’s like LEGOs. Only without the colors.
Stayed tuned for next week’s software upgrade. And keep your fingers crossed.
And now for something completely different…
Toy Vault is releasing a specialty version of Monopoly. To be frank, I don’t understand the appeal of these custom Monopoly boards and why they seem to multiply like rabbits in heat, which is why I found The Onion’s article on the release of a Special “Regular Edition” Monopoly so hilarious.
Yet, why do I bring up a special edition Monopoly board?
Because Toy Vault is releasing Python-opoly, based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Why not? Why not, indeed.
