I peeked in on WordPress.org a couple of times during the day, but the final release of 2.8 hadn’t gone live by the time I left work. I just looked again and it’s live now. I’m debating whether to “relax” until bedtime by installing it here.
You probably think that is a strange definition of “relax.” Especially since I’m already knee-deep in the “relaxing” activity of resurrecting my old blogs, which were running on Movable Type 3.17 when I left them. Movable Type is now up to version 4.26 so I don’t expect a particularly smooth move. I’m debating whether to move these blogs from Movable Type to WordPress as well.
Speaking of blogs, look down there at my count… I’m halfway there for the 75% Challenge! We’re a NaBloPoMo group who knew from the get-go that we were not going to blog every day in 2009, but we were willing to commit to 75% or 274 days. So far, so good!
UPDATE 6/11/09 11:00 AM: My auto-update bar didn’t show up until sometime after I left the house and before I arrived at work today. I was too lazy to do a non-auto-update last night (although I did spend some time getting the MT blogs ready to update) so I’m changing the time frame for the last paragraph below!
If I am still here
in the morning later today, you know that my “relaxation” was successful. If not… I will be back sometime tomorrow with a technology fail story. Ssounds like a win-win, huh?
