TechCrunch is now at WordPress.com

When did TechCrunch make the move to WordPress.com? I took a look at the top WP.com blogs today, and it was listed there, which means it's no longer self-hosted, it's literally at WP.com, under their VIP hosting program. I did a quick search of their site, but they say nothing about their migration. I can [...]

WordPress.com gets more expensive

Ever since I learned about WordPress, I thought it was the coolest blogging platform, and the more I found out about the WordPress.com network, the more I liked the options they offered their users. To this day, I regret not having started to publish directly on WordPress.com instead of doing it on my own with [...]

Flash Player 10 breaks teh internets

Shortly after upgrading to Adobe's new Flash Player, version 10, I noticed I could no longer upload photos to my blogs. And I also noticed that FriendFeed's image uploader didn't work the same way.

Better video

I've wanted to be able to post the videos I upload to Vimeo on my blog for some time, but the WP video plugins just hadn't caught up. I'm glad to say that I found one tonight. It's called, appropriately enough, WordPress Video Plugin. It'll work just great for most people, so I encourage you [...]

Something happened to ComeAcross

Something really good, that is. Over the weekend, I worked on improving the site functionality and on presenting a unified front, so to speak. I eliminated some sections, created some new ones, deleted tons of categories, and introduced some new feeds. The best way to explain it is to show you a screenshot of the [...]
