So… does this thing still work?

August 31st, 2005 by Jeff | Dump Core

At the suggestion of Wednesday over at Websnark, I finally made the upgrade from MT 3.15 to 3.2. I’m usually pretty quick to hop on software upgrades; heck, I’m a computer geek, so I always have to have the latest and greatest, don’t I? Keep in mind, though, that I’m a blogging neophyte. There’s a small part of me that’s afraid to sneeze at my browser while typing this, that I’ll somehow mess it up (or worse, get boogers all over my LCD). That’s not a natural state me for. When it comes to tech stuff, I should be a whiz. Heck, I’m going to be telling the sys admins at work how to install Apache into System V start-up scripts in a few days. This shouldn’t be a problem.

The upgrade wasn’t as smooth as I had hoped, or as Wednesday led me to believe. It’s certainly not her fault, of course; most likely, it’s because I’ve got a rather funky setup here on Demeter, since I’m hosting several virtual hosts from bizarre locations (especially the blog). I ended up having to do some manual file shuffling (tar is my friend), but it only took about 15 minutes tops. You’ll probably notice me tweaking the site every so often, as I try to figure out if there are any bells and whistles that I like.

(And yes, you saw correctly: I linked to Websnark, even after what Mr. Burns said about GPF way back when. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but one man’s opinion is no more important than anyone else’s. I’d just suggest people follow Robert Howard’s advice and formulate their own opinions about something rather than letting other people decide for them. It makes for a much more interesting life.)

Core dumps have been directed to /dev/null.
