Not a huge announcement this one. Not even news worthy. Just upgraded Astroengine to WordPress 2.6.1.
The only reason I mention it is because it took me three minutes to backup the database, all the files, switch off the plugins, display the “site under maintenance” page, upload all the new files, unpack them, install them, fire up all the plugins and verify the whole lot is ticking along as it should. I used to put aside a couple of hours to do an upgrade, catering for all unforeseen eventualities, sometimes crashing the whole site and bugging the WordPress forums for advice. But not today! WordPress 2.6 has a crispy-neat automatic upgrade function that does everything (and more), ensuring I had a trouble-free upgrade. It was like having a little electrician rewiring the house in record time with no fuss over getting paid.
Superb, thanks Keith Dsouza for developing the WordPress Automatic Upgrade! It made Astroengine.com very happy.
Anyhow, that’s me for the night, I’m off to see the huge lightning storm outside…

Always worth throwing a free plug to the freeware guys, they do a great job. And Astroengine is a great looking site, and does the software proud. And you too of course Ian, as the ‘driver’ of it.
Enjoy the storm, and think ‘electric’! *wink*
