Updated to WordPress 2.5

I updated to WordPress 2.5 today. Looks to be working just fine, except for the tagging plugin that I use. I’ll have to wait until the plugin author releases a version that works well with 2.5 before being satisfied with updating.

Annoying things to me about the admin interface:

Can’t move boxes around in the write page anymore.

Still can’t extend the categories box to view all categories, but a “most used” makes it better.

Another plugins usage box is just thrown under all of it. I’d much rather have some of the stuff on the side.

Slow default tag autocomplete.

Horizontal Rules are still messed up.

More to come?


21,000 Hits

As of this week, this Squackle-blog has passed 21,000 hits.

As of today, there are around 9700 posts of Squackle-y goodness for the Internet to enjoy.

Thank you to the search engines for bloating my hits, and hello to the few real people that may stumble across the bloodninja IMs I posted.

A few more comments from actual people have been left, too, so I’m actually excited about the possibility of people actually interacting with my web site.  Why won’t more people leave comments?  :B


10,000 Hits

Hello, everyone. This is a seldom “Site Update” but I figure I might as well make a note of it.

According to the blog stats, the blog has hit 10,000 page views. Recently, there has been at least 200 page views a day, 500 yesterday.

I started the blog on August 17, 2007.   So far it seems like the blog has already overtaken the amount of traffic I get on the site before I opened up the blog.

Thanks to everyone that’s been visiting!

Does anyone even use the feeds?


UPDATE 9-03-07

davepoobond: HI EVERYBODY!  I’ve been hard at work on the new interpretation of Squackle that will hopefully make the experience a lot better to wade through the massive amount of content I’ve got on this site.  You can see my progress at http://squackle.com/ .  The new blog-style format will be a lot easier for me to manage, which means more content will be posted — maybe even on a daily basis!  I’ve already added all the dictionary words I intend to add from the existing dictionary.  The blog site will eventually become the main Squackle.com, but fear not, the original site will be kept up for all eternity.  So if you like the current format, it’ll stay like this forever, just not updated anymore.

Go now!  http://squackle.com/ http://squackle.com/ http://squackle.com/


UPDATE 08-04-07

Pick of August 4, 2007

davepoobond:  Its been recently unveiled to me that the web site is not, as they say, as popular as some of the bigger/more popular web sites out there.  Interesting hypothesis I said to myself.  Then I asked myself, “ARE there other humor sites out there?”  The simple answer to that, in my expert opinion, is no.  Thus, I have proven the hypothesis false.

davepoobond:  Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays (don’t want to leave any of you lesser important religions out) everyone.  Squackle’s back from being down for about three days, there were some problems at the host.  But this is a nice early Christmas present for me to have it back up.  Not like anyone is gonna be visiting on Christmas anyway…don’t forget to OD on versions of the Jingle Bells song here: Jingle Bells Songs

And have a Happy New Year.  I’ll be 21 in January whoohoo!

davepoobond:  The dictionary has finally hit a landmark.  5000 words!  It is quite amazing, in my professional opinion that so many words have been added manually, with no automatic alphabetizer except for my brain, spending two hours on each 100 words that are added to get all the words I’ve made up over the years or picked up into it.  Anyway…there’s also some other stuff…

davepoobond: Happy Halloween folks.  Today I created some nifty error pages just in case you mess up on your journey at Squackle.com you’ll be greeted by a message that’ll explain what you did wrong.  Try it out here:  This page doesn’t exist!

davepoobond:  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! Its been 6 years since we’ve been on the web in some form!  So here’s a somewhat big update.  I might add some more through the day/week, so check back every now and then.  Read through all the past updates at the Site History.

Also, somehow along the way, I miscounted the amount of words in the dictionary, so instead of 100 new words, 210 new words have been added so that there are still 100 more words from the last update.

stimpyismyname: I’ll let it go for 200 cause I like your face.

Elias: I am an Alien

Soup Nazi: My body is hair free. And my house has black mold.

UPDATE 6-30-05

Pick of June 30, 2005  — Yes, its NEW.

davepoobond: OKAY!  Finally an update.  I’ve been busy working on other projects besides Squackle, but now that I’ve got some actual free time the next couple days, there should be more things being done here.  Not necessarily updates, but you’ll eventually notice a permanent link to Gamersmark.com on the side bar right under the Squackle shop picture, since, if you didn’t know, I’m a writer there and there is already a similar link to Squackle on that site.  So, if you’re interested in games and gaming news, check out the site, and read some of my writing over there.  You’ll know who I am if you look at the staff page, I’m sure.

I’m also going to make it a goal of mine to make it so that the big title bar that says Squackle on it will come back to this page when clicked on it by next week.  Sounds nifty, don’t it?  Yeah, I bet you think it is.

If its a fat update you want, I’m not sure how heavy this sucker is gonna be.  We’ll see how far it comes along in the next few days or so.  I guess something of the sort is warranted after three months of nothing.  Maybe I’ll put up some more submissions that have been accumulated over the years.

davepoobond: sorry for all the non-updating.  I’ve been really busy.  If you’re going to E3, be sure to be on the lookout for me, since I will be attending the famed event for the first time ever.  I’m really psyched about it, and its pretty much my dream as a video gamer to be able to go to an event like this, especially with all the next-gen video game consoles coming out!  Just to tide you guys over, I did update a lot of stuff in the jokes section I’ve gotten as submissions (not everything I’ve gotten though), so it should also stop duplicate submissions coming down the line, hopefully…
