Wire to the Ear upgraded to WordPress 2.5

I’ve been very pleased with the amount of readers that are coming to this blog each day. In fact so many of you are showing up that several times my ISP/server took the site down. One way around this is to install a WordPress plug-in called WP-Cache. I’ve been putting off installing it because I knew a major new version of WordPress was about to be released. Well WordPress did get it’s new update (2.5) about two weeks ago and I let the dust settle and tonight upgraded. As far as I can tell you as a reader can not notice any difference. I however see tons of changes in the admin and post writing area. Over the weekend I will install WP-cache.

So what about some changes for you? First off some of the advertising on this site will change. I never decided to blog for money but I was really curious to see if any cash could be made. You will notice some changes in that area as I tweak things, get rid of crap that isn’t paying. I really do appreciate anyone who clicks a link here and then buys something from a sponsor or affiliate link. It pays for my hosting and buys me the coffee needed to type away each morning. As far as real content I want to add more video features. There is an amazing new piece of screencast software for the Mac called ScreenFlow I am going to start using. The video presentations should be a bit more snazzy. I also think it’s time I get my mug in front of the screen and talk to you face to face. I’m a little hestitant but so far everything here has been really cool. And of course I can always delete any bad comments (haha)! I think I need to buy a new light and maybe a greenscreen.

So this test post and update to seemed to work. Thanks for your continued visits. More electronic sequencer analog digital bleep drone data on the way!

    well keep up the good work Oliver, updating a blog often like you do is not easy.

    yeah screen captures are tough because they look fine in Quicktime 7 and then Flash butchers all the useful info once you upload it.

    I am glad to hear you are getting so many readers. I stop by once or twice a day everyday to see what you have going on. This is one of the best blogs for electronic music IMO. No bias, no pretension, just the straight dope.

    Keep it up!!!
