Since way back in the day when I created my multiple gallery support as a test bed to see if it can be done, I started getting feedback that the whole media system of WordPress (Insert Version Number Here) is very primitive with today’s technology in:

  • Functionally
  • Process
  • Use

Three things WordPress prides itself on when it comes to use and expandability. Why can’t we have a media system with the same easy use? Well… I thought long and hard for the past 6 months when the WordPress team decided to roll out the 2.7.x WordPress Wireframe document. 8 days later I came out with my multiple gallery support code that was to say very messy and interrupted most of WordPress “grace”. And course this was all way before I added SSH support into the system.  So I ditched that code and wanted to start fresh with a freah idea for the whole system.

Once the 2.8.x development started I went AWOL for pretty much 4 months of clear cut no programing. So fast forward to today. The release of my proposed Media Management System for the 2.9.x line. I spent many months without talking or what the status was and talked to a few developer privaily on the direction I was taking it. But after a while I got a pretty good picture on how I envisioned a very updated a slick Media Management System for WordPress. I already gotten some positive feedback from some of the top developers in the #wordpress-dev channel and from others who use WordPress as well. And without having to explain myself twice I give you the PDF document that tells all. Enjoy!

So I was just checking out threads on the Battlestar Forum, one of the many sites I operate. One of them was titled ‘Obama Depressed, Distant Since ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Series Finale‘. I thought nothing of it until one of the moderators reported this as ‘spam’ because it was posted twice. Once I checked it out I was laughing real hard. The article is really about how many people felt about the Battlestar Galactica series finale ending. It explains how the Leader of the Free World was depressed because of this. One of the images in the articles has Obama reading ‘Battlestar Forum’ for spoilers to the leaked Caprica script (which we don’t have.. sorry).

Here is the image that was posted in the article:
