To my great surprise, thanks to Tobias SjÃ¶sten, I found out that commenting was broken on blog.bigsmoke.us. I couldn't pinpoint the exact problem, but it must have been introduced with some WordPress upgrade somewhere along the line. I never noticed it because it did work for logged in users. (If I must really guess, I suspect a silent ReCaptcha version compatibility problem.)

Wiebe's posting of the two-hundred-and-first post, made me think of this image of the front page I made a short while after the new design went life. The image clearly shows that we have a little competition thing going on in that we both seem to be pretty determined to have our face dominate the home-page. :-P

In this WordPress installation I have a problem with my admin menu. If I add clear: left; to the rules for #adminmenu li.menu-top it appears to be fixed.

They say that blogging is a long way down from essaying. Articles were already better than essays, and books even more so. So they say. A lot is said these days. I say: the more, the merrier. I say: let us say! Let us say whatever we want. And let people read whatever they want, now that they can.

I just published the 100th post here on blog.bigsmoke.us. Who would have thought that when I published my first post?

Cool URLs don't change, but the relevance of my content does (and it's declining). www.bigsmoke.us consists of content that has mostly never been updated. That's why I want to move it over to my blog here.

The "Places" system in the new Firefox 3 is great. I'm still getting more effective usage out of just the location bar every day. But, sometimes I'm on a different computer, or I haven't been to one of my web pages for a very long time.

I'm now on WordPress 2.3.1. It was about time too; I was still on 2.1. Importing the tags from Ultimate Tag Warrior worked fine. Before upgrading and importing, I quickly patched my local version of WP with a little help from Subversion:
