Google Gears Updated for Firefox 3.6

google_gears_logo_153x43 Finally! Google Gears has been updated for Firefox 3.6! The only thing I use Gears is for WordPress Turbo and I was worried that Google has totally stopped updating Gears. It was finally updated today and the Gears plugin is working again and chugging along.

reCAPTCHA Installed On My WordPress Blog – Fuck You Comment Spam

Recaptcha_logoJust installed reCAPTCHA plugin for on my WordPress and it works and integrates “B E A Utifully” with my current theme and looks cool. A lot less work for my Akismet plugin now. Wonder how the two plugins would complement each other if at all.

Upgraded to WordPress 2.9 Carmen

I did an automatic WordPress upgrade to 2.9 today. I didn’t know that it would be announced so soon after the release of RC1. I mean where was RC2? 😛

It feels good and I WANT to upgrade WordPress whenever there is a new release these days when I don’t have to go through the old painful steps of backing up, downloading the new installation files and updating the files one-by-one like I used to do before the automatic upgrade came along.

Fixed Some Broken Links

 broken_link_checker_wordpress_plugin_screenshotFound an awesome plug-in called Broken Link Checker for WordPress. It basically just sits on your WordPress dashboard and checks for broken links on your blog. I didn’t even know that I had some on my blog from entries that were, as they say, not timeless.

New Theme

I was fed up with my old theme and the limitations it had. It was just a tinkered version of a very old wordpress theme.

I went ahead looking for free customizable themes. And Smashing Magazines post help me.

I kind of love the new theme I have now. It give me options to display what I’m really doing these days. One thing among them, photography. I bought a Nikon D90! 🙂
