A blog by Jacob
One of the major advantages of blogging with WordPress is that there is a wide variety of plugins available. I thought I would briefly share the plugins that I make use of on this blog.

I installed the WP-Cache2 plugin today into my blogging software. This means that browsing my blog should be much faster. This means that you can drop by my blog homepage to see what is up in a lot less time. This means that you should be able to search and read articles much faster than before.
What I don’t know is if the cache for a page is updated when a new post is added to the page. I guess I’ll figure that out in a few moments when I publish this post.
I recently upgraded from WordPress 2.0.0 to WordPress 2.0.1. The upgrade, again, was painless. I haven’t noticed any differences, but there are suppose to be a lot of bugs that were fixed, so hopefully it will just work well like it is suppose to.
I upgraded WordPress today from 1.5 to 1.5.2. WordPress is one of the easier php packages to upgrade mainly because it saves the settings all in the database and my theme in a custom directory that isn’t overwritten when untar-ing a new version.
