whew

Just finished upgrading both blogs to WordPress 2.7.  I wouldn’t have bothered but apparently with 2.7 now WordPress can upgrade itself.  The process itself is easy but as usual it’s a collection of a bunch of easy steps combined with the pre-upgrade work like backup that makes it take a while.  Glad to have it done, the admin interface is way better, adding pictures is easier, and I also added the “re-captcha” system.

The latter means anyone can comment without a user account.  Registering means you won’t need to do or even see the re-captcha.  One nice thing about this particular captcha system is it helps to digitize books while performing it’s main function of preventing spam.  Can’t argue with that.
