Released earlier today, available here.
I was talking to Brodie tonight, and he mentioned how little activity there has been here lately. I’ve been pretty busy with work, and traveling, so I asked him if he wanted to post… and he agreed.
A colleague of mine at IBM in the LGBT community recently started blogging, so of course I have to share a little link love. Sarah and I chatted on the phone early one morning last week about tools for bloggers, and joining the conversation in the blogoshpere. Oh, and I guess I should correct myself when I refer to the gay community, it seems that LGBT is the preferred acronym over GLBT.
WordPress 2.1 was released yesterday, so I applied the update here.
2.0.7 released today…
Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to our attention that could cause a security vulnerability in your blog. We’re able to work around it fairly easily, so we’ve decided to release 2.0.7 to fix the PHP security problem and the Feedburner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.
Released 2 hours ago…
better get to work on the upgrade!
Update: all done. Good thing too, because there was a security vulnerability in version 2.0.5 and below.
WordPress released an upgrade to version 2.0.5 three weeks ago, and I only found out today because a vulnerability was posted to the bugtraq mailing list (which I subscribe to) today!
Anyway, as usual the upgrade was quick and painless, and everything seems to be working still…
I was looking at my blog site stats tonight and found a referer link from an ibm.com site. Turns out it’s the IBM Blogroll. A site that was set up as a place to find many of IBM’s external bloggers.
Sometimes it’s the little things…
I had wanted to implement a redirect URL for the Extreme Blue blog so that ibm.com/extremeblue/blog would redirect to the actual much longer URL http://www-03.ibm.com/developerworks/blogs/page/extremeblue. That way, you could use the shorter URL in print collateral, like URL cards or recruiting brochures, and it would be easier to remember, and shorter to type out.
Anyway, it got implemented today.
Upgraded to WordPress 2.0.4 today… which contains several important security fixes. The upgrade was simple enough. Hope I didn’t break anything in the process
