It Takes a Village
I’m proud to acknowledge the contributions of the following 218 people to the 3.0 release cycle. These are the folks that make WordPress what it is, whose collaboration and hard work enable us to build something greater than the sum of our parts. In alphabetical order, of course.

I’m making a ridiculous statement right out the gates and oddly so because Diablo 3 has not even been released yet. Why say it’s a killer? That’s because Torchlight is exactly what you’d expect the next Diablo to be like.
As promised, I will be sharing some of the love The Killers showed the attendees of yesterdays concert.
Any chance we as Cape Townians get to go to a big concert, we leap at the opportunity. This was the case with The Killers live in concert, churning out about 20 000, individuals ready for big sound and one killer live act.
An emotional moment comes as I finally polish up this LONG overdue theme for my site. Many things can attribute to this theme taking well over 6 month to complete. Among those are the love/hate relationship I have with design, the lack of focus and the need to get everything perfect.
This past week I went to go see District 9 again. The make of any good movie is one that you can watch twice in quick succession only to appreciate it even more. The subtle South African flavor coupled with a unique story, told in an uncanny documentary style fashion made for an enjoyable second ride. The certain individuals I’ve coaxed into watching this big screen action movie, found that my recommendations were sound.
Remember, the Tamatometer never lies…
Last week I got notified that one of my domains (twittersa.com) has been flagged with a “Trade mark Infringement”, and subsequently had to be handed over. I don’t think that this is uncommon, as I’ve had other domains ripped out from underneath me.
It was a good run, and if you pay good money to trademark your brand, you retain that right to sue. No hard feelings.
Lately I’ve been getting lots of twitter followers. I think it’s mostly because of my recent move to WooThemes and thus I’ve refrained from over posting to twitter. I really don’t want to seem like a loony toon who tells people what he had for breakfast, and only try sharing stuff that are genuinely cool and interesting. But that might be on the change (again), this is why.
I’ve recently run into some crippling Windows problems. And it was, worst of all, effecting my Internet access when I need it so desperately, like so many fellow South Africans. Moving to mac has crossed my mind, but I opted to go to a free place. A place where operations and function, roam freely. Linux.
