Catastrophe Averted (more or less)

WordPress 3.0 is out, and I’ve been busy updating this site and Commentarium. I’d been meaning to renovate Commentarium a little to make it more user-friendly, and updating to the newest version of WordPress was meant to be the first step; then, my luck being what it is, I broke the site. After an initial shock, I managed to re-install WordPress and keep all the info in the database, so the site is still there, minus some images that were lost. I switched the theme to something more conventional (Twenty Ten, the new standard theme for WordPress), and I’ll be making some more adjustments in the next few days.

I’m also considering making some changes to this site, but I’m not sure. On the one hand, I really like the look, and I’d be sad to change it. On the other hand, I often find myself frustrated at how narrow the design is, and how everything ends up stretching vertically for miles and miles. But then again, it’s very simple, and I like simple; there’s nothing that bothers me more than overly busy website designs. Meh.

We’ll see. For now, I’m glad we didn’t lose all the content on Commentarium. Even if the site doesn’t get updated very often, I like what is there a great deal.
