Just a quick note to let you all know that I am still around. 🙂 For the first half of this month, I was in Australia to attend the Machine Learning Summer School held at the ANU. Well, should see some action here soon when I post some photos I took on the ANU campus and also of Sydney – including shots taken while (walking not climbing) crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The long-awaited WordPress 2.0 has just been released a few days ago. Seems like there will be a new toy for the new year that is on its way!
I must admit, since migrating to :wp: about 6 months ago, I have been extremely happy with the ease of administration and customization, as well as the overall speed. However, as the latest new release is supposed to be a major upgrade from the previously stable 1.5 series (some plugins are are no longer compatible) and judging from the rash of upgrade-related problems I saw in the support forum, I will be upgrading my site slowly in the coming weeks. Hopefully this can minimize any unexpected catastrophes.
Been quite happy with Site5’s hosting service so far, which is why I have placed a link banner on my site. Well, anyway, see for yourself for their attractive offers!
While reviewing some of the past entries I wrote on this blog, it seemed that the heading “Knowledge” was not really very appropriate. As of tonight, I decided to split up the “Knowledge” category into “Reading List” and “TV/Movies” which, frankly, more accurately describe the posts. Hopefully none of the past entries have been bookmarked by someone out there – because the URLs to the entries belonging to the “Knowledge” category will be changed – else there will be some disappointed souls… By the way, because of self-linking I will also need to use a crawler to ensure there are no broken links on my own site! I normally use Xenu for this.
