The time has come…

"The time has come",
the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax,
of cabbages and kings"
– Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872

The time has arrived to upgrade the WordPress software to the latest version (1.5). Amongst the new features will be better colour schemes, a sidebar for Steve to put the purpose of the site, new linked pages where longer articles can be written (and probably his CV). I’ll also be adding some new functionality to enable threaded comments (which should stop the confusion of numbering when some comments are released before others) and some other features that I’ll let you know about when I’ve finished testing.

This means that sometime over the weekend, the weblog may not be available, or will look peculiar or broken. That’s OK, it just means that you’ve hit the site during the upgrade phase.

    I hope that functionality includes a preview screen for the comments before they are posted.
    I also note that this comment partially disappears behind the menue on the right side. (and the scroll bar if there is one)

    My upgrade to WP 1.5 for my own weblog took just minutes and went through without any troubles. Of course, I did back up everything and warned everyone of impending doom first. Good luck! And thank you too for this great weblog.

    I think threaded comments is a step forward…
