Midday update

I brought WordPress up to 2.1.3 just now — a round of security updates were released for it. I recommend it for everyone who’s rolling their own WordPress installation (the hosted service already got the changes).

A little rainstorm has popped up over the peninsula. One could say these are the first “popcorn thunderstorms” of the year. It’s going to be awful summerlike today and tomorrow, with expected highs in the upper 80s, but Thursday will bring a rude awakening with lows in the upper 40s and highs in the 60s. That should be amusing.

I really recommend you all stop by the Wachovia Auditorium at the Beatty Center for Business and Economics Thursday night, as Peter Applebome from The New York Times will be stopping by for a lecture about how the Times is embracing — and struggling with — the blogosphere. I’ll be there — I hope to see some of you as well.

Looooong night tonight, with the whole 10PM shift and all. Catch you all later…
