Today I discovered that WordPress version 1.5 had been released upon the world, and I upgraded the b.rox blog with nary a glitch. (Well, maybe one or two. Minor things.)

I had a ball making new header images for the new template, which are now on display in random rotation. Some look very nice, and some, um, don’t.

I’m going to test drive the new version for a few days, and if everything seems kosher, I’ll look into upgrading the other blogs hosted on

Kudos to the open source heroes who make this happen.
