WordPress Updated

Thanks to a comment of a colleague, I found out that WordPress has been targeted by some not-so-great worms and admin take-over attacks lately. I haven’t updated the software here for, ahem, quite a long time, so I did a full backup this week, updated the software to the latest, safest version, and deleted over 700 fake user registrations.

One thing I always wanted here was the “image verification” when people register, or when unregistered users wanted to post a comment. I have that on now, and I hope it reduces the fake registrations I’ve been receiving.

Other than that, it’s a nice morning in London, and we plan to head back to the Southampton Boat Show for more fun and “looking” today. Even my wife plans to do the free scuba diving experience with my daughter.

Hey, this is my 300th post on this blog. The first was back in 2005.
