All better

Looks like upgrading to WordPress 2.5 solved my weird database problems, that I suspect might have been created my my cheapo Web hosting provider, IPowerWeb, when they upgraded their (our?) control panel and did some other wizardry. Now, the Web site is back up and running smoothly. Now, I’m thinking I might go ahead and re-design the site a little bit (already took off the “new” in the title – ’bout time) in the days ahead. I love tinkering around and learning how to do all this stuff myself.

By the way, I have to tip the hat to the developers of WordPress. The new version is really nice and has added some very nice features. Plus, it appears to have taken a way a lot of the clunkiness that existed in prior versions. Thanks, guys! This Internet thing is kinda cool 🙂
