newstalk RSS Feed


Well, I’m finally doing it. I’m upgrading to the new WordPress. The site may experience some technical difficulties over the next few hours, or weeks. :) Expect some design changes too. You have been warned.

Update 12-Oct – That went better than I expected. You’re now looking at the new Newstalk, with Wordpress 1.5.something under the hood. Converting my old template to a WP1.5 theme has been interesting… there are still a few bugs in the css and the sidebar, but they’ll straighten out as I have time.

The other big project is going to be converting my old entries from Textile markup to Markdown. Textile is great and all, but over time I began to realize that it feels more like writing HTML in an obscure dialect of regular-expression-ese, than writing plain text. Markdown is wonderful, clean, and simple. I love it. And of course it completely breaks my in-place system for styling poetry. I guess you can’t have everything, can you?
