  1. Though it was before my time, it looks like WordPress 1.0 was when “cruft-free” permalinks were introduced.

    Be sure to give us a tweet if you end up doing an impromptu show next Friday, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d love the chance to check WPWeekly live ;)


  2. @JLeuze – LOL you know, if I had that scoreboard online, you would probably be the leader. I keep pushing myself to get that thing online I just haven’t done it yet.

    As for WPWeekly live, who knows what will happen.


  3. @Jeffro – LOL, yeah you gotta get that scoreboard up, shame some of the other listeners into putting up a challenge :)


  4. Hello Jeff,

    I appreciate you dropping by at my new blog where I tried but literally messed up by comparing and contrasting WordPress and Blogspot, LOL. It’s very new and hasn’t much readers as of now, your visit was much appreciated though.

    I haven’t tuned in to the latest episode but hoped to see news about WordPress 2.8 final coming out -just like on last year’s WordCamp when a WP version came out- :)
