WordPress iPad App Update

January 11, 2011

I have to mention that the new version of the WordPress iPad app, which I just downloaded today, seems to work much better than the last. Embedding images is easier, but resizing them gives unpredictable results at best. Italics and bold are still not supported and I don’t know how to embed a link, but the rest is at least improved a little.

I’m using the on-screen keyboard tonight as well. I tend to hit the wrong keys occasionally because of the lack of tactile feedback, but on the other hand the autocorrection function is a useful tool, most of the time!

Update January 29, 2011:

I tried to do the Chris Christie post (above) with the iPad and when trying to type the last paragraph, the app repeatedly crashed. I don’t know if there is a word limit (if so, why?) but it’s really frustrating. It’s still not ready for prime time, folks. Sorry. I love WordPress otherwise, but I would really like an app that made it easier to work with on the iPad. The iPhone, not so much…too small. WordPress guys, please? I’d pay for it! It doesn’t have to be free!


This is what I want for my birfday…

It doesn’t look easy to park. Changing lanes might even be difficult. On the other hand, maybe others might stay out of the way because it’s so intimidating.

Probably doesn’t get very good mileage, either. I still think it’s pretty sweet.

What do you mean, the rocket engines don’t really work?



Why should I leave Earth forever for Mars?

January 11, 2011

Mark Whittington put together an article about how 400 people have already volunteered to make the one-way trip to Mars as proposed in in an article in the Journal of Cosmology. Sure, it would be exciting, you would be a pioneer, all of that stuff, but that’s not why I would go.

It’s because it’s probably the only way to avoid the Zombie Apocalypse.



It’s A Trap!

Yeah, they really were outmanned and outgunned…and trust a smuggler like Han Solo?

I don’t think so.

And a darkness fell over the Galaxy…
