Today I attended the Barcamp in Dornbirn (#bcd09 ). It was the first barcamp I ever attended. For sure it was big fun and I am sorry that I was not able to attend both days.

It is really a pitty, that I thought that wordpress is the reason for the problem. But who would ever expect such a bug in Filezilla. Nevertheless it seems that the problem has been solved in the latest nightly of Filezilla. (They show the ticket as fixed in their bug tracking system).

The reason why I stick to WordPress 2.6.4 at the moment

Well, tonight I had my first upgrade-downgrade experience with WordPress.
Let’s start with the upside first:

  • The upgrade did work nicely – I uploaded the new files and the webpage still worked.

BUT two things bothered me quite a lot and finally made me change back to WordPress 2.6.4: Continue reading ‘The reason why I stick to WordPress 2.6.4 at the moment’
