It Works! It Lives! It something something something ???

:cool: Yay! Asynchronous twitter notification of blog posts are working now.

What did I do? Why I upgraded to 3.3.1....

Realizing that today is a holiday and the weekly backup of my blog takes place on Monday morning, I decided that maybe sometime this afternoon would be a good time to make the push to the latest release....rather than go out into the nice weather and shop. :crazy:

I had only done a quick of read of the upgrade process yesterday, and it didn't seem too daunting. Though I knew there were a set of customizations here and there that I would need to migrate.

I opted to move the various dirs of the old install aside and slowly transfer to new stuff up. With a few exceptions...like merging media and plugins, and getting my tweaks to the 'custom' skin over.

Only somewhere in the process of copying things over, I realized I hadn't actually done the update 'custom' skin step....so there was a mad dash to put that in. (I recall old skins are mostly compatible, so I could've copied my old 'custom' over the new one...but opted to figure out my changes and apply them to the new.)

Once over, things went pretty much straight forward. Only one skin element failed to work, I kept staring at the code, but couldn't figure out why...until I happened to look at the old source on the hosting side. Guess I had changed bits through ssh and not copied them back to my work area. Someday I'll have to get my work area back in sync with what's being hosted. )-o

The other loss is that I had updated what smilies I have on this blog and the character translations....I think I got that back.

I then went through the settings reviewing stuff to see that I had things right and to see what stuff is new....

I think everything is sufficiently back to normal, so I'm calling it done. :lalala:

doing Twitter Test

Let's see if the latest muck up of my blog makes the twitter plugin work correctly in asynchronous mode.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
