Just upgraded the blog to WordPress 2.8, doesn’t seem to be much new for a major version, other than Widgets are a bit easier to configure now – instead of editing the theme, you can just drag’n’drop them onto the left/right sidebars.

Upgrading from 2.7.1 went easily, helped by using a non-default theme I guess – no more editing the CSS every upgrade; although for the first time I had to disable, re-enable and re-configure a plugin to get it to work.

For some reason Wake-On-LAN is working again on my Fedora11 machine, must have needed a reboot of one or other machines for some setting (/etc/ethers or BIOS?) to take effect. I re-ran “ethtool -s eth1 wol g”, so maybe that helped, even though ethtool reported that it was already setup that way.

I still can’t get the Nvidia drivers to work properly, even tried the beta 185.18, I’ve got a feeling its that N6200 card, its always been a bit odd – why I replaced it with the lower spec FX5200 at one point!

Weather’s been lovely this week – had a BBQ yesterday and having another one later today when its cooled down a bit.
