Major overhaul – Upgrading WordPress & Deleting Spam

I finally did an upgrade of WordPress on this blog (how to upgrade a WordPress installation) and took care of some administration issues that I’ve been avoiding learning.Wordpress has changed a lot since back when I first started this blog — much more powerful. I think that it will be easy enough to handle upgrades and such too (one of the reasons I avoided working with it for so long).

I turned on Akismet – but there were already over 8,000 spam comments pending. Luckily, I found this post and was able to figure out how to log into my host’s database manager to delete them.

So far, it all seems to be working. Yay!

Doing simple things on the computer and getting them to work… kinda fun, like back in my TRS-80 days making pixels move on the screen.
