Whoops! WordPress Plugin Update Issue

One of the neat things about Word­Press 2.5 is that when a plu­g­in that’s in the Word­Press Plu­g­in Direc­to­ry is updat­ed, you get a mes­sage ask­ing if you want to down­load the new ver­sion or upgrade auto­mat­i­cal­ly. If you use the auto­mat­ic option, Word­Press down­loads the new ver­sion, deletes the old one, unzips the down­loaded file, and reac­ti­vates the plu­g­in. It’s mar­velous­ly sim­ple, com­pared to down­load­ing, unzip­ping, delet­ing, upload­ing, and reac­ti­vat­ing things man­u­al­ly. Until last night, it worked beau­ti­ful­ly.

I love quo­ta­tions, an out­growth of my love for words and the writ­ten word in par­tic­u­lar. I’ve col­lect­ed an aston­ish­ing num­ber of them over the years, but I nev­er got around to doing much with them. The ones that are already on this site are a very tiny sam­ple.

I’ve spent a lot of time late­ly col­lect­ed all the var­i­ous text files of quo­ta­tions from my hard dri­ve, wed­ding out dupli­cates, and try­ing to ver­i­fy or iden­ti­fy sources.1 Since my brain has­n’t exact­ly been work­ing at a peak lev­el with the whole flu what­sis plus insane pollen lev­els in Atlanta, this project has been a nice, no-crit­i­cal-think­ing-required time filler.

Lots of warn­ings, but I want to see if it’ll do *any­thing*

Edit: Well, it did post to my blog, but absolute­ly noth­ing showed up in my LJ. I don’t sup­pose any of you dear peo­ple have ever made this thing work on your own blogs, have you?

While we’re at it, does Flickr­Spin­nr work, or is it just teas­ing me?
