Blog Upgrade

I just finished upgrading Keith’s Amusing Musings (http://lesia.com) to WordPress 2.0 from 1.5.2.  Ideally, you won’t notice anything as it is meant to be seamless with most of the improvements on the back end.

There is one benefit to readers and that is you will no longer need to validate your comments using cumbersome CAPTCHA images.  (The purpose of CAPTCHA on a blog is to reduce/eliminate spam by preventing computer bots from posting junk as comments.)  The new WordPress includes an Akismet plug-in so I decided to use it and shift the burden of dealing with spam from my readers to the Akismet spam-blocking service.

Let me know if you notice anything odd…leave a comment. 🙂
