blog upgrade

Crikey. That was a bit of work – moving from WordPress 1.2 with a huge number of hacks into the latest-and-greatest version, but even though it was pretty much working, software from May 2004 (!) was starting to show in terms of flexibility and general slickness.

I’ve added some static pages for things like my reviews and Aperture hacks as they seem to be the most popular content, and I’m slowly going through the old posts to clean up bad quote marks, odd foreign characters and broken image links. Once that’s done I’ll remove this post from the front page and let it age gracefully…

A couple of my more immediate aims are to have the pages cached automatically so load times are greatly improved, automatic machine translation if you have a non-English language set in your browser (please let me know if this is a bad idea and you’d prefer to manually click on the translation flag), and the ability to open things up for guest posters, as a) it’s all the rage from 2006, and b) the number of posts might actually creep up above 1 per month.

Update: Pooh – Translation is bust 🙁 Working on it…
