Josh (the blog)

Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.


WordPress 2.5.1 sucks

Functionality-crippling flickering post buttons that force me to disable JS, overly-adventurous self-updating plugins/upgrades that don’t work, and general slowness. File under “do-not-use” and “hazardous to blogging”.

Textpattern? Bluetrait? D-I-Y Django (with me and what time, exactly)?

I really want WordPress to work, if only because I know it can work so beautifully. Give me tagging and plugins and themes and flat pages and life is beautiful. Not that I’ve really had time to use any of those features in WP the last… ooh, I don’t even know… 18 months? But it’s important to know that they’re there.
