So I updated to the latest stable WordPress version, and it went pretty smoothly. Nothing seems to have broken, and hopefully I will discover all sorts of fun new features.
Something else getting an upgrade is the images associated with each post. I've started uploading some of my own photos to use, as I figured that would be a more personalized touch than using something like morguefile.com, however cool they may be. So expect more cool pictures to replace all of the small thumbnails in place now. Also, more fiction to follow soon.
