Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 12 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 12 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

For those to whom this means something, I’m now up to WP 2.0.5 (9 days since its release – that’s slow going for me!). Thanks to Mark for the changed files zip, it’s really helpful, and for the heads-up about Error 500s – I did have the problem, but the supplied tune-up plugin took care of it. Thanks!

In other news, I’ve tidied up the BlogRoll a bit, and added some new blogs. It’s more a side-effect of cleaning up my Bloglines subscriptions, because the BlogRoll comes straight from there, but it’s nice all the same. One new inclusion is the newly relaunched More4 News blog, which is looking good – and I’m not just saying it because I’m in the “Other blogs of interest” column” (thought that’s more than welcome…). I also want to have the first Trackback… Oh, and it’s a great programme and a great site, of course!

Thanks very much for the links – and very glad you like the new Channel 4 Blogs. Congrats on filing the first trackback… Saved us having to test it! Clearly that bit of the site needs some refinement – but we’re on the case.
