Upgrade in Progress

– Posted in: About this site

I am getting ready to upgrade my software from WordPress 1.5.2 to 2.0.8. I have to deactivate all my plugins. This will make the site look weird. Then I have to delete and reinstall. This will give you a 404 error. Then it will (Lord willing) be up and running again, but without the plugins, so still looking weird. Then, I will add the plugins back in, and it will look as it always has. At least, that is my intention.
So long.
Update: Done. I’m back. I think everything works. Let me know if you find something broken. For my next trick, I will attempt to change the theme. But not tonight. Enough for one day.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

dear k,

your wonderful blog came up when i was searching for a word that Greenlanders have re gardening in cold places. now am unable to find it. it was in a slate column i did, back when they tolerated a gardening column. (i now write about animals for them, and plants for landscape architecture magazine). possible for you to find it?
it came to mind when a friend wrote me about a finnish word meaning: should i wander around aimlessly? will send that to you, if you would like. best, cc

I’ve been away from this site, not contributing or even reading it, throughout December. I’m glad for this post because the dashboard looks very differnt today from what I’ve come to expect. No limage plug-in but thank goodness I had back up. Now I’m really curious what changes you have made/will make to the theme.

My part of upstate NY doesn’t have snow, and while it got down to 20F last night, it’s supposed to hit 47F this afternoon. I personally wouldn’t want to start any project that couldn’t be dropped in the middle, because while it’s unseasonably warm now, there’s no guarantee it will remain that way.

Hi Kathy, just stopping by to say hi, actually. Does anyone have snow out there yet? This is highly unusual to not have snow on Jan. 2 here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. However, it does have me thinking about gardening. I’m going to start work on my next greenhouse. I’ll drag the lumber from my barn to the garage and start assembling the frames. I had planned on leaving it all until spring, but what the heck, I’m getting the itch!

Carol, I not only held my breath, I gripped the mouse too tightly as well.

Bill, I had the most trouble with my Contributors page, which most people don’t ever look at.

Did something happen?

I must have blinked.

All looks well and the same. Good job! Those of us who use Blogger and recently updated our sites to the newest version, sympathize with you. Don’t you feel like half the time you are holding your breath, hoping it all works just right?
