WordPress 3 is now out.

I’ve upgraded and if you are seeing this, then the process was the normal easy, couple of clicks upgrade. So far the interface looks cleaner and I’m liking the fact that finally the updates is at the top of the main dashboard menu rather than being buried in a couple of menus and not in the obvious place. It was weird that plugin upgrades were not under the upgrade option in 2.9.2
Let me know if anything isn’t working – I’ll be upgrading the other sites in the next couple of days – it will be interesting to see what is discussed at Wordcamp/Podcamp Ohio on Saturday.

Podcamp or WordCamp Ohio is next Saturday (June 19th)

I registered for PodcampOhio 3 months ago but for some reason it was not in my calendar so it’s a good job they reminded us about it on the blog.
It will be nice to take the dellmini with me next week instead of having to lug the normal laptop around. The only annoying thing is the mouse movement and smaller keyboard so I’ll have to type slower. I’m debating on loading OneNote onto the machine (restricting me to just one OS for the day or just using Onenote WebApp(but that assumes web access is always available)

If you’re going – don’t forget to say hello.

I guess I should have got my act together and submitted a session on “securely logging into your WordPress blog at conferences without needing an SSL certificate”. The most embarrassing thing is that I worked out how to do this last year before the conference and said my instructions were coming soon!

Sessions at Podcamp Ohio.

Well so far (three sessions in) the day has been a lot less geekier than I expected and although some of the sessions were different to what I expected, it has been very interesting and entertaining. For those of you who missed the sessions they are being recorded on the blubrry network I think – keep an eye on the homepage for more information I guess. see CoefficientMedia (not currently active though)
I’ve fired up my twitter account (helsbyhome)and have posted a couple of things on there – I may start using it more often…..

I’m going to PodCamp Ohio.

PodCamp Ohio, June 28, 2008 Mike Mcbride tipped me off about PodCamp Ohio – a free meet up in two weeks (6/28/08) for bloggers and podcasters. This is just down the road from me so I’m going to go. They are still in the planning stages but it sounds like it will be pretty good. Registration is requested so if you are planning to go then register and drop me a line. I’m going to try and get a tshirt made up pimping the blog, hopefully I’ll get a design done today and it’ll arrive by then.
