Photos

I have decided to add my old photos to the built-in Wordpress media library. I’m having some trouble with the gallery tag, as it completely refuses to order the images in any way I ask it to, but at least it displays them. Below is a list of links to new posts with photos.

Burlesque in Norwich

It’s almost time for the next Achtung! Cabaret. Our next event is on Saturday, 7th February at the Talk, and features Anna Fur Laxis, Princess Angelique, Ropesluts, Sophia Landi, and more! With DJ regulars Mikki and Mz_Pink, and a whole lot of fun.

Wordpress Updated

This site had been down for quite a while, after it had been hacked, and I simply disabled Wordpress. Now I’ve finally done the right thing and upgraded Wordpress to the latest version, 2.7, which rocks, and hopefully things will calm down now.

A big thanks goes out to Neil, and his mate Ed, for some SSH scriptery to remove all the iframe lines that had been added to my files.

Windows Live Writer

It’s part of the new (well, I’ve only seen it recently) Live Suite, and it’s a essentially a tool to publish from your desktop to your blog, supporting different blogs, like Spaces and Wordpress installations. I thought I’d give it a whirl, and as such, this is published with the very software.

Part of the same suite is Windows Live Mail, which I installed on my laptop and am quite pleased with so far. I wanted to try it on my main machine but for whatever reason, it seems to refuse to launch properly.

Also, my cat spilled a glass of wine on my keyboard the other day, and now my control key is sticky, and my full stop either doesn’t work at all or puts 3 stops…. (or 4 it seems)…

EDIT: I finally managed to get Windows Live Mail working, with the directions outlined here. Previously it had always gotten stuck on the "please wait while windows configures windows mail live" message when trying to launch. An annoyingly common problem as a quick googling would indicate.

Time to Upgrade

Wordpress that is. Now to find the time to do this inbetween work and Gears of War. Hm…
