I’ve made a couple changes to the sidebar, adding a random pic from my photo gallery along with info on what’s currently playing on iTunes. Why? I dunno, it just seemed like a good idea.
The tunes info comes courtesy of Brandon Fuller’s Now Playing plugin for iTunes (Windows only, but there are a bunch of Mac plugins out there that do the same thing). The random picture is pulled from the Gallery of photos using the WPG2 plugin for WordPress.
I’ve also tossed my Gallery 1 installation finally. I was running two seperate instances, with two copies of every photo, which seemed kinda stupid. So, a lot of Google image searches will break for a little while, but I’m not terribly choked up about it. If you have a DS account and want to upgrade to Gallery 2, please drop me a line and I’ll give you the skinny on how to install G2 (and upgrade from G1, if necessary).
Playthings, really, but it’s all in the name of fun.
As an aside, the folks at WPG2 have announced that they’re not going to support Gallery 2 implementations that use URL redirects. I am pretty sure what this means is that they refuse to answer any more users questions about how to get WPG2 working with a Gallery 2 install that uses redirects. It’s pretty straight forward, and is even (poorly) documented. If you have such a beastie, and it’s not working, drop me a line and I’ll help ya out.
