Upgraded to WordPress 2.3

I just updated to WordPress 2.3. I believe that I’ve got everything working, but if you see anything out of place, please let me know. Thanks.

What Happened to My Computer?

When I turned my computer on on Thursday morning to begin my daily routine… something was wrong. OneCare loaded, it looked like, but there was no tray icon. KeePass didn’t load up like it always does and is set to do. Looked like other tray icons were missing, too. UltraMon didn’t – and wouldn’t – load. UltraMon is a great program that allows me to have task bars on all 3 of my monitors. This is very convenient.

So, something was up with my computer. Something happened. I spent an hour trying to figure it out and then decided to just get my routine done. During this, I tried to uploaded a file with CuteFTP. And it gave me an error message that I had never seen before. The result was that I couldn’t upload any files. I also found that ieSpell was really, really slow. It never usually is. After I finished my routine, I sat down and reinstalled all of the aforementioned programs. This seems to have fixed the problem with everything but ieSpell.

So, what happened to cause all of these things to break? I don’t have the slightest idea.

On WMAR Marist College Radio Tonight

I’ll be on WMAR Marist College Radio with Ryan Schneider and Dustin Aglietti tonight at 8:40 PM ET. We’ll be talking Yankees baseball, of course. Due to my fragile mental state since we lost, they’ll be plenty of tears, I’m sure. You can listen live from their site, if you want. :)

PokerStars.com World Blogger Championship of Online Poker

A couple years back, I participated in the PokerStars.com tournament for bloggers. It’s freeroll (meaning you play for free) and, though I’m not a poker player at all, it was fun. I got an e-mail today from them saying they are doing it again, so I thought I’d give it another try. What follows is the code they ask you to put on your blog to confirm your registration. :)
