With dasBlog 1.9 being released today I made a quick jump and got the site upgraded to the latest version. I also joined the dasBlog mailing list to see if I could make some type of contribution back to the community.
Plus, I finally moved away from the default dasBlog theme and switched over to Mads Kristensen's clean and simple theme.
In the process of upgrading the site I got a chance to use Scooter Software's Beyond Compare, which I must say is a truly awesome work of art and a must have for anyone who works with a site hosted on FTP. If only I had known about this when doing my painful dasBlog upgrades in the past.
