Couldn’t Ask for More…

Geek Nirvana Mike and I headed in to downtown to meet up with Matt at Kaveh Kanes so that Matt can take me to e-mail nirvana, helping me to get rid of spam forever. (Yes, I will be writing a tutorial. Yes, it will be posted at ScriptyGoddess.) I just had to snap this photo of Matt and Mike with my phone before we got down to business. I think they are actually IM’ing with each other, right here at the table. Ok, it’s an IM chat with a third WordPress developer who is in England.

It’s a gorgeous sunny day, and we’re sitting out on the patio area at the coffee shop. Nice and cool, with grooving tunes piped out from the shop. Enjoying the free WiFi (take THAT, Starbucks!) Really, could you possibly ask for more?

I left the house earlier with four cameras. I think it says something about my issues when I felt like I needed to bring more with me. Just how many cameras does a girl need? Wait … don’t answer that. Ok?

I’m guessing Starbucks just acts like a hub for their service, so its doubtful they make any profit from Starbucks servings of coffee.

It would be really nice if individual coffee houses would offer free wifi, or something reasonable. I can’t imagine the amount of times I’ve needed a signal, and stumbled across an open network. It’s such a blessing.

As I understand it, T-Mobile isn’t set up to make profits off Starbucks sales, but rather on the subscription fee you pay to use the WiFi at your local Starbucks.

That said, I’m all about the free WiFi. Now, where’s my tablet…

Upgrade Day
Just finished upgrading the server to address a mod_ssl vulnerability and get PHP 4.3.2. It went swimmingly, which is always nice.

In the process of upgrading about half a dozen sites to WordPress .71 to test it out before the code is released. It…
