I took the dive today and moved this site into WordPress 3.0 Development trunk way ahead of the feature freeze date. I been monitoring the commits, and while I haven’t done much except for the few patches I have submitted the code is very stable.

For those daring, go ahead and run the trunk. You’ll notice a speed difference with everything including the jQuery. Backup your site for when something fails or you need to revert!

WordPress Testing Solution

Posted by Shane

One of the problems the core developers have of WordPress is the amount of testing that goes on. Since this is free/open source software, users usually do not try software that they can get free. When its paid software they fell like it’s an obligation to make sure that they are getting their’s money worth before having it officially released as the ‘offical’ version.

It doesn’t work that way for WordPress. Stephen Cronin has posted up some ideas on his website and one stands out that could work for WordPress.

NASA's Cylon Basestar

NASA, ESA, and D. Jewitt (UCLA)

The last time I posted something about NASA there might have been ‘God’s Hand In Space’, but it seems like NASA might have struck gold. While we all know Battlestar Galactica is “fake” NASA Hubble Telescope has seems to have disproved that theory.

I would not be surprised to see a more rational explanation for this however I can only think of two:

  1. Cylon Basestar
  2. Vulcan Scout ship.

What should us common folk do? Watch Caprica! :)

Job Promotion.. sorta

Posted by Shane

I never really said what my real full-time job is except if you visited my Project page you would find out really quickly where I am most of the time I am not online: Geek Squad. I do not post a lot of things related to work because I do not like to talk about it, however I did get a sort of promotion within Best Buy/Geek Squad this past week. (I do not talk about it because of Client Data Privacy Issues.)
