Serendipity to WordPress – Importer version 1.5 4

Serendipity to WordPress – Importer version 1.5

I should have posted this sooner, but I forgot. My Serendipity to WordPress post importer (v1.4) has been upgraded! Simone Tellini took it (in the spirit of which this software was originally released, way back when) and updated the importer to support nested categories (and of course re-released it). To make sure the software continues to be available, I’ve taken (with permission) Simone’s updated version and checked it into my...

Human Target is AWESOME 3

Human Target is AWESOME

A long while back when Human Target first came out I did a review. My feelings at the time were “wait and see”. I wasn’t entirely sure if the show would be any good because it spent too much time trying to do too many different things at once. While I never updated the review, Human Target slowly became one of my favorite shows to watch. I’ve been feeling depressed...
