WordPress 1.2 is available. I’m at a loss for words at the moment, so I’ll just quote the features list…
On web standards, celebrities with one- and two-word names, WordPress, IRC, and the meaning of life.
Thoughts on Gmail security, home decorating, and traffic.
Announcing the launch of Ping-O-Matic, the coolest ping thing around.
The XHTML Friends Network has been getting interesting coverage lately.
Generating images with PHP is a mixed blessing.
Assorted links from all over.
Eric thinks that blogs are backwards. I think he’s turned around.
Lockergnome has finally responded to the community and redesigned their site.
The joke no one seemed to get.
Paul Scrivens has written one of his famous critiques of the Lockergnome redesign. He covers the redesign point by point with far more detail than I have, taking a multidisciplinary approach. He loses his cool at one point, but try to understand this is incredibly frustrating. What’s strange is there hasn’t been a peep out […]
You’ll either find this incredibly funny or find it incredible that anyone could find this funny.
Good code is the essence of a healthy web, just like good food is essential to health.

Why do I think so? Results are given as an ordered list, or <ol>, which is a good thing. It shows 20 results instead of just […]
There is still time to get your entries in for the WordPress CSS style competition, with the top prize currently at $70. Not bad for making a single CSS file. What’s great is no matter who gets the prize, the community wins as each entry is licensed under the GPL. Update: It finished up with […]
I have been surprised that so far Orkut has remained amazingly responsive even under the incredible traffic I’m sure they’ve been getting. I still stand by my opinion that Orkut will be a success, however when trying to log in just now I was greeted with not one, but four distinct error messages each time […]
