Jen had a great idea, so I thought I’d steal it. This is 2005 in review.

January

    I made my thoughts clear about the scarf, which still brings many people to my site to this day.

What is that you ask? Well, that is a funny line on this clever website. They go on to say:

Our services are unbelievably expensive. Like, really really expensive. You almost certainly can’t afford us. With that in mind, if you are grotesquely wealthy, we would love to hear from you.

How did I find this site? Well, Adam was recommending their hosting in #wordpress.

System/79 Hosting is too expensive for you. Come back when you have more money.

If you stop by #wordpress on chat.freenode.net and ajnewbold is there, make sure and ask him to recite every line of The Hunt for Red October.

And if you are interested in a career make sure you

come back to apply once we’ve fixed our email.

This site is great. The site looks nice and keeps you laughing along the way.

I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.0. So far, it seems nice. I’ve played around with the previous release candidates, but now it is ready for Primetime. Or so I’m told. :) Also, check out the newly designed WordPress.org The design is a lot different from the old, but I think it’s nice. The forums could use some better styling though. If you want to upgrade, follow this great guide written by Podz.

EDIT: I’ve noticed one bug. If “wordpress” is in the post slug, it has a problem finding the post. Apparently this was a reported bug, but I figured it was worked out before the official release. WP 2.0, almost ready for primetime.

EDIT #2: Having “wordpress” as the category slug was also messing things up. I changed the slug to “wp” and things are working again. How odd.

EDIT #3: A ticket has been reported in trac and you can see an example of the error on one of my test blogs.

EDIT #4 Ryan fixed this issue with a new classes.php. Check out the changes.

Well, since I am talking about theories, and believe me, The Chappelle Theory was a really good piece of writing, I shall now tell you about a theory that every college student knows about. This theory is called The Buffalo Theory. It might just be the greatest theory every formulated by man. I know not who wrote this, I am only retelling it.

All through the Great Plains, there were millions of buffalo. The buffalo were hunted by the Plains Indians, or the more politically correct term, the Native Americans. These Native Americans had a system to hunting the buffalo. You see, buffalo move in herds. They can only move as fast as the slowest member of the herd. The Native Americans recognized this, and would hunt the slowest member. What they didn’t realize is that when you kill the slowest member, it would essentially make the herd faster, as now the slowest member has been killed. This made it more difficult for the Native Americans to hunt the buffalo after long periods of time.

Alcohol is a lot like those Native Americans. Instead of hunting buffalo, it hunts brain cells. Now, just like the buffalo, brain cells can only work as good as the worst one. Alcohol kills the slower brain cells. Therefore, the more you drink, the smarter you become. So drink up everyone. The world is counting on you.
