WordPress, the folks who make the software that powers this blog, decide to release a security update. Cool. Then some asswipe goes and plants exploitable code in the security update, leaving everyone who upgraded somewhere in the northern regions of Merde Creek sans paddle.
And in the middle of all this, Media Temple, the ISP that hosts this blog, decides they’re going to push us onto some fancy-schmancy new hosting plan so we can install the latest version. They said it would take 5 to 10 minutes; it took about 2 hours.
So to make a long story short, the blog is experiencing some technical hiccups. The groovy banner images aren’t rotating like they should because the new Media Temple server apparently doesn’t like my little PHP-through-CSS trick. The layout might look a little funny in places because WordPress made some database changes between versions 2.0.6 and 2.1.2. The sidebar’s missing some stuff because, well, just because.
But I promise I’ll fix everything as soon as I can. Really. Would I lie to you?
