#1. I’-ll be traveling abroad this week (= end of September 2007). So, I’-ll be slow to respond to e-mails and slow to blog —-if any. All depends whether I can find ways to connect my laptop.
#2. Upgraded to WordPress 2.3. Check the new features. One problem, though: there was at least one bad plugin which messed with Midas Oracle powered by WP 2.3. I first pointed to WP-Cache, but it turned out that I did accuse it wrongfully. (Adam Siegel of Inkling Markets will confirm that I’-m too quick to emit a negative judgment on things and people. ) Actually, the faulty plugin was Post by Author, which is now deactivated on Midas Oracle (until the plugin author fixes the problem).
Here’-s the gibberish I was getting:
WordPress database error: [Table ‘-moorg.wp_post2cat’- doesn’-t exist]
SELECT ID, post_title, post_date, post_category FROM wp_posts, wp_post2cat WHERE post_author = 29 AND wp_posts.ID = wp_post2cat.post_id AND ID != 4625 AND post_status = ‘-publish’- AND post_date <- NOW() GROUP BY ID ORDER BY post_date DESC LIMIT 6
