So now you're an expert with wordpress

A new project - just what the blog needs to get back on track. It's been a while. I welcome back my fictional readers.

If you need to build a brochure site for your business (and let's be honest, if you don't already have one - you and me BOTH have put it off too long) - Wordpress may be for you.

I assume two things.
1) You have basically zero experience with PHP and mySQL
2) You're tired of waiting on an extra hundred hours of spare free time to come along

Technically I also assume you have a hosting company that you pay to store things on the web for you - which you currently only access via FTP. If they are fairly decent - you probably also have tons of other functionality provided on your account at no extra charge that you aren't taking advantage of. Because... we'll I do.

My businesses use CrystalTech (where's the free month?) which is a very powerful WIMP.

Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have something useful to say about the whole procedure of getting a WordPress site up and running, that I can post. Hopefully, someone will get some benefit from it. According to my stats - gain root and Verizon Nokia 770 have been a real "hit."

If you guys are worried about my Nokia, it's ok, she's doing fine. They're even starting to go back up on eBay. To-do list updated. For a few weeks I was sporting a laptop (which I ended up having to deploy) so the Nokia wasn't getting much attention. I need to do that Nokia 770 Memory upgrade.

Hacking the Verizon "red" UI on the KRZR turned out to be a chore. I just wanted to make it green... The ringer even stopped working after a weekend at ACL. It's cool - it just needed to be cleaned & re-seated.
