Earlier this year I was in this phase where WordPress just wasn’t cutting it. It just took me too long to make a post. I wanted some way to make a post fast and with little effort. Something more than just Twitter, but I didn’t want to feel like I was writing novel either.
A few months ago WordPress updated to 2.6. With this update some great things were added. Like turbo mode, which uses Google gears to store most of the admin panel on my local machine. This tends to speed things up like crazy. Also uploading media became really simple. Just a few clicks and I can add a picture. Then I ran across the OpenID plug-in. I have been using it for a year or so now, but with the latest update, I was able to use my self hosted OpenID to log in. And yesterday, I ran across this theme. It is by far the best theme I have had over the years.
I still have a few problems with WordPress. There seems to be no easy way to add tags to your RSS feeds. Also for some reason I can only get RSS feeds to show a limited amount of the post. These have been fixed my adding or subtracting some code. I’m not sure if these are normal problems or if its just me. Either way they are fixed now. Oh one other thing, it sure would be nice if Firefox’s spell check worked better with WordPress’ edit screen.
So as for yestery I feel fully satisfied with WordPress. I may still find some thing wrong with it, but nothing too major.

So I did a little more work on the site over the weekend. I created a header image, and updated to WordPress 2.3. I think I will be going back to an earlier version of wordpress, as I don’t like how the tags are being supported. Anyway I have a problem, if you try to click on the header image it doesn’t link anywhere. I want it to link to the home page. So here is the css that is displaying the image, if anyone know how to fix it, please let me know.
background:url(images/dedicated_text.png) no-repeat right bottom;
Oh and by the way, I would hold off on WordPress 2.3, lots of plugins break.
Update: I am back running on 2.2.2, I had a few problems but i think its all worked out.

It has been over a year since I updated the theme, and I happen to run across this one. What do you all think. I have to change the pics on top, but I wanted some opinions first. I think it may be to bright, and also I don’t know how well the blue links work. Does it seem faster or is it just me?
Here is what the site looked like before, just in case you forgot.

So I have to tell you, I have been a user of Firefox since it was a baby, back in the days it was called Phoenix. Yep back when you didn’t have great and wonderful extensions, back when you could download it and just run it. Firefox has come a long way, in the past few years. It has risen to take the world by storm. I believe the latest statistics I read, was the Firefox was used my about 15% of the people. But I will you thats not good enough. We need to make it higher. So if you don’t use Firefox, you can get it through this link. If you do use Firefox, this link has some good stuff for you.
Visit Download Mozilla Firefox
Also if you visit my Firefox tag, you can see the extension I use.
Have a good day, and remember, IE sucks.

Yep, here you go, I know look a little more like I belong to the web 2.0 era. Although I don’t know if thats a good thing or not. For archive purposes, I have taken a screen shot of the old theme.
