New blog for gm and gp

Grandma and Grandpa are working on their house. I’ve been hacking away at a new blog for them. Especially pleased with the Lightbox support for pictures. I’ll see how it goes and maybe put it across to the main photo blog.

Blog backend updates

I’ve just updated most of the hosted blogs to WordPress 2.3 – so far so good. I need to update the integrated photo stuff to Gallery 2.2 as well – that’s going to be a lot more involved and needs some good planning and change control.

ITIL podcasts

Some great podcasts from Mark Haddad – an ITIL trainer. Here and also on this website. [Edit: Updated with correct download url]

all ITILed out

Two weeks of back-to-back training. Last week Service Support in Birmingham, this week Service Delivery in London. All in aid of getting the ISEB Managers Certificate in IT Service Management. Just over a month to the exams; two three hour written papers. Time to get reading and revising.

WordPress updates

Away from home and the WordPress updates come in.. 2.2.3 is a security update; also 2.3 Release Candidate 1 should be out tomorrow. I also bumped the version of subscribe2 on the family blog – that fixed a lot of problems 🙂
