As Per Whatever

Yes, Atlanta is On

So as I mentioned in my previous post, I’ll be on my way to Atlanta in a few short hours. Should be fun, though I should go to bed soon. LOL. Unfortunately this is a working roadtrip, as I’ve got a laptop with me to do stuff for work/class. Nutty. I’ll talk more about some of this later on this week.

I’ve really shaken up my playlist in the last couple weeks. The iPod now contains far less Weather Channel jazz, in favor of a varying lot of rock music. My Incubus obsession continues, and I’ve gotten obsessed with some of the early ’80s British bands that inspired Metallica to go out and do their thing (Diamond Head, Sweet Savage, etc.). Oh, and I have been completely about The Cure lately. Tantric’s also gotten some increased airplay. But don’t take my word for it, keep an eye on my charts. Clearly, this is a sign that, for the first time in a year or so, females are troubling me. I consider this a positive sign. Haha.

WordPress 2.1 is out. I am itching to upgrade but the WordPress team has made some nifty template changes — as a result, I’ll need to audit my template. This will take a while to review, so it may be a few weeks before 2.1 goes live here. I’ll be really happy to have an auto-save feature finally, but I’m hoping to avoid the serious issues Chris is having with his blog right now.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I may do a little writing from the road — we shall see.
