A Few Changes…

In case you haven’t noticed, I recently upgraded to the new WordPress 2.2.2 and there are a few hiccups that need to be adjusted. Thank you for your patience. Also, a new theme has been added to the site.

Latest Upgrade

I just upgraded to the new WordPress 2.2.1 . If you run into any problems or bugs please let me know. Thank you.

Also, it’s that time of year again. Although it’s hard to believe that 24 years have passed since I attended that first outdoor Rockfest concert on the weed-whacked hill up north (an area now in the vicinity of a golf coarse), the 25th annual RockFest is to be held on July 7 and 8 (Saturday and Sunday), 2007. This year it’s being billed as the pre-celebration to the long-awaited for (10 years in the making) MusicTown project. Among some of the venues MusicTown will house (from what I’ve been told) are an entertainment training facility for both management and artists, various independent vendor facitlites, and a standing-only live concert hall for visiting national “big name” concerts (unlike the parallel street’s Korinza entertainment facility, which houses a sit-down theater-style hall). Another aspect that seperates MusicTown is that it is a government-sponsored facility, unlike most of the other live music venues (about a dozen or so) in the area, which are independently-owned private facilties, each having its own style and characteristics. With the RockFest, comes that annual influx of tourists in the area. So…expect many of your regular neighborhood haunts to be a bit more crowded and busier than usual during the festivities.

I don’t know about anyone else, but to me it seems the Tube is still having some hiccups. When I upload videos, it shows the previous video uploaded and I have to repeat with the new video. Anyone else, having this prob?

Anyway, at least after two tries I have been able to get the daily video up and running today. I’m sure the Tube will get the hiccup fixed soon…

The Tube is really having a time of it these past few days. It’s currently down for maintenance, so I can’t get the island weather video up and running yet. For now here’s the latest on the boys on a beautiful Friday afternoon…

I found this great vid on the Tube, hopefully the hiccups the site has been facing will dissipate soon. (I haven’t been able to get the comments, favorites, or playlists to work correctly.) But don’t let that distract you from this challenge to a common image:

Seems Okinawans aren’t the only ones who remain active in the 4th quarter. Speaking of which, here’s a chance for you to express and give insight to others on how you view norms (and dispel some of the barriers of understanding images) :

Many things were going on 5 April. The site was updated to the new WordPress 2.1.3 and here’s an update to the original post for that date…

Matt and the gang at WordPress have been very busy lately. You may have noticed, the site has changed slightly over the past two weeks. In that time period three, yes 3, upgrades have been installed. Today, I upraded to the latest version of WordPress, Ella (a.k.a. 2.1). If you run into any bugs or problems, please let me know. Thank you.

NOTE: If you follow the blog with any regularity, than you already know the posts have been a little off the normal pace for the past week – or so. Between the holidays and changes to the system, things have been a bit busy. But now that the holidays are over, and the system changes are almost complete, posts should be returning to normal in a few days. Thanx for your patience and understanding… : )

Below are links to my latest attempt at a large video from scratch. Unfortunately it was too long for the YouTube site and I had to go back and break it down…..
