I finally finished this. I had to disable a lot of plugins, update my theme, and I’m still not satisfied with how it renders particularly fonts in Firefox so I will do some additional tweaking of my style sheet. WordPress 2.7 is a lot different than the one I was using. I’m still not convinced upgrading to the latest codebase is worth all the effort. My theme hopefully will provide less grief in the future, but there is still stray bits from previous experiences to get Gravatars and OpenID working. These are basically built in to WordPress now so both should be working fine now.
MyBlogLog was a bit of a pain. It is now a widget but I’m still not sure it is any good for anything. It is more common since when I first installed it. I looked at some of the new plugins. I’ll probably fool with one of the SEO ones. There are a lot for Flickr and Social Media Integration, but I’m not a heavy user of either. I host my pictures here, not even using WordPress’s interface. My blog is old and I didn’t feel like moving all my images. I have my own old-school system.
My blog seems stable, which was a bain of some previous WordPress upgrades and despite less plugins, the spammers haven’t hit me yet. A few people read my blog and in 2009 I’ll have to endeavor to write more quality stuff, seeing as my life is a bit more stable. I still have all the questions that remain unanswered by the staff at the Sauder School of Business and my MBA Classmates. People still don’t believe me and they still choose to pretend nothing they said or did had any negative affect on me at all.
This blog proves otherwise.
