Upgraded to WP 3.0

Just upgraded the blog to WordPress 3.0 – two clicks and I was done – can it get any simpler? What a pleasant surprise compared to the pile of crap that CS 2007+ turned out to be. Try upgrading that in something like two clicks? Ha! Well done WordPress!

This computer hardware chart is quite cool. Not sure why, where and who would want to use this. But, it does beg the question – can things get any geekier? 🙂
