Blog Maintenance

I’m in the process of updating the blog. Apologies if you receive strange emails: I’ll temporarily disable notifications until everything is back in action.

Things to do:
– Take a backup
– Upgrade WordPress from version 2.0 to 3.04
– Temporarily disable subscriptions
– Strip out all outdated plug-ins
– Re-add custom smileys
– Install new photo gallery plug-in
– Rebuild photo galleries

– Make new logo/image for the blog header
– Check old content still works, remove dead hyperlinks
– Re-enable subscriptions

Edit: I’m off to Sydney so I’ll have to carry on with this when I get back on Wednesday.

Edit II: Well I’m back from Sydney — it was incredibly hot (42°C). I’ve made a start of the photo galleries but it’s going to take a while to sort through the thousands of badly-named images and put them into some kind of order. I’ll keep plugging away.

Edit III: I’m still going. Most photo galleries are now back in action.

Edit IV: That’ll do. If you come across anything broken/missing let me know.
