For the past week or so, I have been updating the Woopra WordPress Plugin. As of right now it’s current development version of 1.4.1 (currently running on this site) is working great. One of the main gripes I had with the earlier versions of the plugins is that is was all done with including and the functions were not ‘grouped together’.

After doing some looking at some other plugins that exists, I decided that it was better for it to be now moved into a class system since PHP version requirements will be going higher for WordPress in the near future and PHP itself versions are being outdated faster than I can keep installing them on this server.

Benjamin Button is another movie I just watched. After bashing the movie on the Battlestar Forum and since my sister had to watch it for a class, I watched it at the same time. The first movie that I thought of that compares to this is Big Fish. Where the son of a dying old man tells his story of his adventures as the movies flashes back to his life on his adventures.

So what compares with this on is that Brad Pitt character goes from older in a young mans body to and old person in a young body while the girl he met is on her death bed with her grand daughter. The girl in the death bed is played by her “younger” self in the flashbacks. The movie explorers the dynamics between how people view people at an old age vs. young age.

I truly doubted the movies characteristics. This movie was really good. Very moving.

Rating: 9 out of 10.
