“A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history
– with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila”

I was going to write something about the latest wikileaks and the impact it has, but it feels like a subject that has been written about enough.
Lets go geek instead, being voluntarily snowed in this weekend I took a chance to really geek out. I updated my blog, quite a lot actually but no one will probably see it.
Talked with a friend about this, putting down hours to make something better, easier, nicer or maybe just more user friendly and then no one recognize the good job you did, how fun is that? “You mean they are not the geek you are?,” was the answer. Well, I can’t argue with that.
Late last night after a few drinks I asked another friend what she thought about the my new ideas. Of course she had some opinions, actually pretty good. But it took me another 2 hours today to get it right.
Just to go trough the process, I have a local blog copy I use to play around with, checking color, fonts, space, everything. When I get where I want I have another local carbon copy I rewrite for a last check so I don’t miss anything or get something with me I don’t want. From this copy I upload to my blog server. I do put some time and energy in the appearance.
Tonight, logging in to the admin panel, I see wordpress have an upgrade. Having changed that much, not only in my theme, also in the generic wordpress templates and files I couldn’t use the automatic update.
What to do? Download the new version, upgrade my carbon copy, make all the changes again and upload to the server.
I have surfed around checking pages and they all look good, but if you see something strange, please let me now. Either it is with purpose or I have missed something in the update or/and upgrade

Have a nice week!

  2. Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you’d wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.

      Thanks David, I would guess it’s not very phone-friendly, I had enough work making it look proper with different browsers (I really hate IE when it comes to design). The background image probably not load that fast, if ever, on a phone. I’ll check it out and see if I’ll do anything about it.

        Hey David, I got a chance to see what you mean. When looking in a mobile you usually enlarge the site. The background is a photo and doesn’t get bigger with the rest of the site, which make it look strange. I think I haveto put in a repeat bg behind the photo
