It’s a sad day, but also a day to rejoice! WordCamp NYC 2009 is officially over and I just wanted it to continue all week. But if that was the case, registration would be like $500. Two days was good enough.

The second day was pretty much in Mason Hall (for me at least). There was unconference sessions going on where we were in the main classroom complex yesterday. For those who want a listing can go here.

WordCamp NYC 2009: Day One

Posted by Shane

Today (or tonight since I am posting this at night) was the first/end of Day One of WordCamp NYC 2009. This was also my first ever WordCamp. I was really physic. I left my friend’s place on Roosevelt Island around 6:45am hitching the “F” line to 23rd and 6th Avenue.

Once I got off I was really confused on where I was because I was not used to being in that location. With the sun not out as well… it was really hard to determine the points of the compass. After finding someone else who was also looking for Baruch College on 23rd and Lex. After we got another set of directions, we were on our way. A few minutes later I arrived at the registration area for WordCamp NYC 2009!

Media Feature Vote In!

Posted by Shane

The Media 2.9 Feature vote is in! Albums top the list as I thought they would. This gives me a good idea where to bring the Media Wireframes Document up to speed and allows me now to get back in with Mark, Jane_, and Rudolf Lai who has been working on this feature during the summer as part of the Google Summer Code Project.

Expect to see increased activity surrounding media work in the coming days/weeks . Might slow down a few of the plugins I am developing, but in the end I rather wait to get 2.9 out the door than release my plugins and theme! (Notice “singular” in “theme”. :))

I got the news last night as I was heading to bed that the 2.0.x (and below) branch is no longer supported. “No Longer Supported” means that the development team will not work on it if there is a security hole found. The minimum that you must have is version 2.1 (Code Name: Ella) in order to get support. It is still highly recommended that any user upgrade to the latest version of 2.8.2. This allows you to stay on a more maintained branch.

Another day.. another innovation over here at the rabbit hole and for other WordPress blogs a-like.

One of the things I started dreading when I first started this blog again back in July 2008 is that eventually that archives ‘By Month’ list and categories list was going to get so long that it was going to be lopsided and lots of items really make the site look “longer” than it really was when it comes to the vertical scroll bars.

What I needed to do now since both the Archives and the Categories list was getting to long, I wanted to shorten them up, but still allowing the user (that’s you..) to be able to still be able to browse all the available archives months and categories without having to view the full archives view.
