Upgraded to WordPress 3.0

The old adage (which I think I made up) about spend­ing more time geek­ing around with a Word­Press instal­la­tion than actu­al­ly writ­ing in the damned blog holds true, ladies and gen­tle­men.

I just fin­ished upgrad­ing this fine blog to the newly‐stable Word­Press 3.0.

In case you were won­der­ing and/or sit­ting on the edge of your seats, I took great care to:

  1. Dis­able all of my plu­g­ins
  2. Dump a copy of my Word­Press MySQL data­base using the aptly‐titled mysqldump
  3. tar a copy of my Word­Press direc­to­ry
  4. Do the upgrade!
  5. Re‐enable the plu­g­ins one‐by‐one, mak­ing sure each works (or at least doesn’t break any­thing)

While I know not every­one is so lucky, I’m glad to see that every­thing appears to work here, because I’d be death­ly embar­rassed if, you know, Google or Bing’s webcrawler came by and things weren’t look­ing up to my usu­al stan­dards.
