WordPress 1.5

I have upgraded the database and everything else to the lastest version of WordPress.

I know a bunch of things are broken now. I’m working on it.

If you see anything wrong other than something with the books, currently reading, movies, or other amazon related media content let me know.

The new version brings such features as a one time approval for comments, which has been a complaint from numerous people. Now if you are a registered user, I only have to approve one comment from you and all future comments made by you will automatically post.

Theres a new themes manager which seems interesting, but its wreaking havoc to the heavily modified layout I recently put up. Still working on that.

There is a new control panel for me that none of you will ever see, but its a bit better.

As I find other new features I’ll update.

Plastic Jesus

Yeah, thats right. I went there. I bought the new Billy Idol album.

One of the songs on there is called Plastic Jesus.

Well just read the lyrics for yourself. :)


This album could definitely grow on me.

Sumo Wrestling says No to pants.

Its a pants party and sumo wrestlers are not invited.

In an effort to increase numbers in the waning sport, some youth associations are allowing kids to wear garments that are more like bicycle shorts than the diaper like ‘mawashi’ that sumo wrestlers conventionally wear in competition.

The pro sumo association has declared it will not allow anyone to wear anything other than the mawashi in competitions in its Tokyo arena.


Condom Bargain

I subscribe to an RSS feed that monitors good deals on the web of all sorts.

This one crossed into my aggregator today and I almost fell out of my chair. Amazon has a deal for 36 condoms for some really low price, but read the comments. Here’s an example of whats there:

Why would you need 36 of these things? I just keep washing mine off and it works fine.
