If you’re reading this from an RSS reader you should come on by and check the new look. I’m using a cheesy WordPress theme, but I really really enjoy it. It’s so organized. I’m debating on making a ‘blue’ version of it… we’ll see, depending on how bored I get tomorrow.

I’m now running WordPress 2.0 which was released today. I don’t think I like the blue in the administrative UI, but everything as a whole seems to be very smooth.

WP2.0 The Good:

  • Some AJAX and fades for UI responses
  • Little improvements here and there
  • File Uploading

WP2.0 The Bad:

  • Blue UI… I just can’t get over it

WP2.0 The Ugly:

  • Comes with TinyMCE WYSIWYG turned on! I couldn’t believe it. In my experience with WYSWIYGs…TinyMCE eats it. My vote is definitely for FCKeditor if you have to use a WYSIWYG editor…

In the tradition of my Christmas breaks, I’ve rented a lot of movies. Here’s the mini-review:

  • The Pianist – I had rented this earlier in the semester, but fallen asleep during each attempt at watching the movie. I finally finished it and loved it.
  • Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith – Probably my favorite of the entire series, but I really wonder what I’d think of it if I had watched them all chronologically.
  • Mahler – Didn’t finish it—started it and it was pretty much garbage.
  • Psycho – GREAT!!! I finally got surprised at a movie.
  • Crash – I didn’t rent this, but the DVD is at our house… I really liked this movie, but I wish it were a little longer with more character development.
  • Malcom X – I really liked this movie. I learned what Conk is as well as learned a lot about the guy’s life. Of course, I read more about him online after watching the film because Spike Lee isn’t the most non-biased source of information.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird – Watching this one tonight…

Whew. I think I’m going to buy a new digital camera since mine is kind of screwing the pooch. I’ve had my Nikon Coolpix 3700 for 2 years (well, 2 years in march) but I’ve given it quite the beating. I’ll be sure to buy a snazzy carrying case for the new addition.

Here’s my current pick if anyone finds a better price for >3MP and SD storage, and quick shipping (I need it no later than Jan 4) let me know ASAP.

    I’m not digging this theme, green, blue, or any other color. Too…. eh, it’s not you, methinks.

    I like the choice of camera. Just got this one’s little brother (A510) and I am in looooove.

  2. i like the theme. WordPress 2.0 for life.

  3. I also like wordpress, but being a dummy when it comes to development, I don’t understand a great deal of it.

    I like the theme here a lot, but I agree that green just seems a little off. Thats just my opinion tho, and we know I am pretty much worthless… ; )

  4. I like the theme pretty well…and also..FCKEditor for the win!
