MIA

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.

WordPress 2.0

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.

Site5 banner

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!

Splitting hairs

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.
