I’m notorious for not keeping promises to myself. I keep promises to other people just fine, in fact I can be fanatical about it, not ever wanting to let others down. Why I don’t include myself in that fanaticism I have no idea, but that’s the way it’s always been. Not every personal promise is [...]

I just upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.6 and hope to spend some time playing with the new features later. If you need to upgrade yours, don’t be afraid! It’s not so bad. Maybe this will help.
