WordPress upgraded

I’ve upgraded WordPress (the software that runs the blog) to the latest version. Hopefully nothing broke…

I’ve upgrade the version of WordPress (the software that runs the blog) to version 2.5.1 – this is a fairly major upgrade so it may have broken stuff. An initial check seems to show that it is (mostly at least) working ok.

A short admin note – I’ve turned off pinging and trackback on all the posts after we got hit with 21 ping spams today. I don’t suppose anyone will notice….

A little bit of hacking later and we’re now showing 1,2 and 3 month rolling histories. Actually I’ve changed the plugin a bit to allow a friendlier specification of the time for the historical ‘window’ and some other bits. This has kind of morphed into a new plugin which I’ve imaginatively entitled ‘Waybackthen’ – code is available on my (new) [code page](
