Loose Ends

Live is easier when you follow directions… I have been working to “fix” my WordPress upgrade because I felt it was unnecessary to read the upgrade instructions and upgraded at my whim. Upgrading WP is really easy, even if you don’t follow the steps. But they have these things called “instructions” which make things go more smoothly. I guess my Y chromosone blocked that from my conscious thinking.

Anyway, so I am in the middle of going back and getting WP to be how it should. Thankfully, I know enough techie stuff to get myself out of these situations! And who would be one of the saving graces for me… IE7. I know! It lets me work on my slow ass computer at work while FireFox FTPs the files that I need. The FireFTP is so much easier and more inuitive than WiseFTP and is more reliable than DreamWeaver. So, I’ll give IE7 a workout for it’s money, at least today.

Well, as a result of a short day yesterday (Elder’s Eye Exam), I have a lot of little stuff that I want to get out there:

Unorthodox Race Week
I did not run Tuesday nor did I run Wednesday. I typically take a 2 day Taper (rest period) before race day. However, I don’t think that is going to work today. I think what I may do is run an easy 4 or 5 today without Tempo, then take Friday off for a 1 day Taper. I do need to check no the weather for Saturday morning so I know what to plan to wear

That Damned Podcast
Episode 007 (That’s 1053… Gravity@1053) is up an running. My goodness… please accept my humble apologies on the lateness of getting it together. It was partially edited before I even went to San Diego, but with everything else going on, it sat there and sat there. Last Night I was able to frankenstien it together. I was hoping to add some fun new segments, but that will have to be in the upcoming episodes. Episode 008 is going to be my Calhoun’s Volunteering and Running.

Cadbury Eggs
Like Bags, I have a Cadbury fetish… and so I had my first egg last weekend and it was GOOD! Did I tell you that Cadbury had a miniegg-esque Christmas candy? THey were the same structure as the Mini Eggs, just not the girth of a real Mini Egg and as you women can attest… size (usually) matters.

If you were around last spring (or want to check out the Spring months of 2006), you know that I kept up with the Cadbury chocolate and the number of calories that I consumed while eating Mini Eggs, Cadbury Eggs and Reese PB eggs. I doubt that I will do that this year, but perhaps just mention how good they are from time to time…

    You? IE7? What will all your rebel co-workers think?

    Well, as long as they don’t find out before we take the General Lee down to the Holla so that we can get some moonshine to take to granny who’s in prison.

    I have not yet made the upgrade on my WP blogs. I am actually still running a quite old version. (Now people are going to try and hack me.) My main blog (www.mythoughtspot.com) should be upgradeable pretty easily. But the podcast (www.missionarytalks.com) is a bit stickier. I have a plugin that is not WP 2.1 compatible yet.

    We get Cadbury chocolate here in Mexico. But, I don’t remember seeing any eggs the last 2 years for Easter. I will have to keep my eyes pealed. The good thing though is that Cadbury chocolate bars are available year round.

    I am having a doosie of a time with 2.1… I am sure it’s my fault but posts that I type won’t save…

    This may or not be your problem, But try going into WP admin and turning off the Rich Text editor. (This happened to me when upgrading from 1.5.x to 2.0)
    Try going into Performancing for Firefox(You do use that, don’t you?), and posting from it.Does that work?
    BTW, I assumed you used PFF because you mentioned fireftp. PFF has a plugin that runs fireFTP in its sub-window. That way you can still use FF and leave IE7 where you should…. alone.

    I did take out the advanced WYSIWYG editor and uploaded the whole includes folder. But that didn’t help at work. However, things were grossly different when I got home.

    I don’t use PFF… I have no idea what it does. fireFTP operates in its own window, but I think that with my crappy computer, fireFTP and Foxmarks all working at the same time, it made Firefox really sluggish.

    Hey… I think I found your answer! From technosailer.com

    There are no posts displayed after WordPress 2.1 upgrade

    Pretty standard answer here. You have to actually run the upgrade script because of the way posts/pages, etc are handled in 2.1. There is a database schema change and the only way the database can be altered to work with 2.1 is with the upgrade script. If you simply upload the files and load your blog, you will see the No posts found message. The upgrade script can be found in wp-admin/upgrade.php and it should be run from your browser.

    PFF is a plugin for firefox that lets you blog from a sub-window in the browser. Once the plug-in is installed, it puts an icon in your firefox status bar(lower right corner). If you click it, the sub-window slides up where you can blog and still browse all you want. The reason I asked was that the recent releases of PFF had a fireFTP plug-in that you could use that same sub-window as an ftp client. check it out.

    I upgrade the script twice. The first time things weren’t working very well. Then I deleted a bunch of stuff and ran it again. Problem was still happening or started to happen after the 2nd upgrade.

    I just use a separate Tab for blogging/FireFTP and everything else. Tab Browsing ROCKS!

    Yeah, I love tabbed browsing. I just really like PFF because I don’t have to log in to the WP-admin console as much. Now, I only log in whenever I want to mess with the theme or add a category. Anyway… I hope you can figure out what happened to your upgrade… I’ll keep looking around as well, and let you know if I find anything.
