I just found the COOLEST wordpress update plugin! Normally, wordpress is kinda difficult to upgrade, because (especially on a site like this) you don’t have access to the server files, and even if you did, you probably wouldn’t know where to start! Well, this plugin does it all for you! You can either click “automatic”, and have it do everything, or you can do it the semi-auto way, where it asks you before each step, and lets you choose options such as to download the backup .zip file it creates. VERY easy, basically all you do is click the “next step” button, and it backs up, modifies, and does everything for you! Amazing.
Here’s the link, for any of you interested. It’s a plugin, so it has to be uploaded to the server originally, but if you ask nicely (and you’re part of the EC mod/admin team), I’ll do it for you.
Apparently my blog isn’t working properly with Internet Explorer (version 6 OR 7), so if you want to view my blog, please use a different browser, preferable Firefox. I’m not sure why it’s happening…probably some script bug online.
I have finally finished my computer!!! Two days ago, I put all of the parts together. It’s not TOO hard…and it’s a lot of fun. It’s a lot like a big puzzle…
Next I had to load Windows XP, and then overwrite it with Windows Vista. I got Windows Vista from someone who works at Microsoft (heh…they get a 90% discount…so for Vista Ultimte…normally $600…I paid $60 ), but they accidentally got me the UPGRADE version…so you have to have a previous version of windows installed first (hence why I had to load XP first). I love it! I installed Vista 64-bit…which is awesome because it means it can fully utilize my 8GB of RAM that I have in my computer. The computer runs so fast it’s amazing.
SIDENOTE: For all interested…the day I was ordering my parts…I noticed that my 2.2Ghz quad-core processer wasn’t in stock…so I upgraded. I went with the AMD Phenom 9850 BLACK edition 2.5Ghz quad-core!!! Which, by the way, I found out, is the BEST processor you can GET from AMD.
Hehe…well, my hard drive showed up for my new computer today…the ironic thing is that it came all the way from Tenessee, and has shown up before my stuff that shipped (same day/time) from California. Go figure.
I also stopped by our local computer surplus store today and grabbed some SATA and IDE power and data cables…because apparently the “Open box” motherboard I’m getting from Newegg only includes the motherboard…and none of the accoutrements. I can’t wait for tomorrow, when the rest of my boxes are scheduled to show up!!!
July 7, 2008
Hmmm…it seems like the date function is not working properly next to my posts…they all say April 21. So, I shall just put it up above my post! Please ignore the little calender icon.
EDIT:I removed the little calendar thingy, so now you can either look at the date on top of the post, or in the footer bar at the bottom of my post.
SECOND EDIT: I installed a new theme, and the date now works.
