Hi folks, if you haven’t heard already the newly polished version of WordPress was released today (It’s pure ninja magic!). If you haven’t upgraded already, you should. Here is the info on the new version.
I saw a few requests come in this morning for folks having permalink issues after upgrade. Now I am seeing similar issues being discussed on Twitter.
Here’s a quick post which outlines the steps I took to get this remedied for a few folks. If you upgraded, and now your pages or categories are giving you a 404, try the following:
I also ran into a couple white screens of death, here’s how I got them working:
If you run into the white screen of death when trying to log into wp-admin, try renaming your theme, then log in. Once you’re able to log in and update the database, rename the theme back to its original name.
The other thing you can try is uploading a fresh copy of WordPress onto your server. I know, I know, you just updated, why would you do that? Well, some servers are finicky, and some FTP clients don’t always play nice. In one instance today I fixed a white screen by simply re-uploading the /wp-admin directory. Done and done.
These tips worked well on a few troubled sites I encountered today. Hopefully you don’t see any issues, and are enjoying all the new goodness in 3.1.
I ended up going through some old pictures last night and figured I’d post them. Thanks for the motivation Scott!
These are all from various times while we lived in Italy. I hope you enjoy.

I caught up with Brandon Corbin from 8ify yesterday and he asked if I’d be interested in appearing on the 8ify podcast to be interviewed. Sounded like a good time to me, and it was.
Check out the interview and the podcast in it’s entirety over at 8ify.
Let me know what you think 🙂
See you in Phoenix this week folks, enjoy!
As most of you may know, I’m a coffee addict and proud of it. 😀 Over the holidays I received a Tassimo T20 Brewpot by Bosch, and I have to say, it rocks!
I got the Brewpot in December and I have to be honest, I haven’t used my other coffee maker since. My wife has fallen in love with it also, being you can make hot chocolate, cappuccino and tea with it. She loves her tea, and the kids enjoy their hot chocolate.
I drink my coffee black so flavor is paramount. I have been drinking the Starbucks disks and the coffee comes out with a nice bold flavor, in less than a couple minutes. Same for the other drinks you can make with it, takes minutes, and no mess. It’s a serious time saver.
The cappuccino disks disappeared quickly, let me tell you. We lived in Italy for four years and it was nice to have authentic cappuccino in the morning with a nice pastry. This by far is the closest thing I’ve had to the real thing, and again, no work to make it and clean it up.
Well, it’s New Year’s Day and I am enjoying the hell out of it! Took off this morning with two of the kids to get breakfast….I came back with some Bacon Maple Bars:
The new year will bring random posts to dre.im, kind of like this. I figure it has been neglected long enough, so why not post random small posts like this to let you in on what is going on, what I’m thinking,
what I’m doing.
In any event, have an awesome 2011, I hope it brings you great health and wealth. I have a lot of cool things planned for this year, lets see how far we can take it 😀
October 2010 has been filled with anticipation, excitement, fear, cheer, pain, and progress 😀
Fortunately, it’s mostly positive stuff. Short of my shoulder surgery, it has been extremely exciting.
Back in January I posted on my old site Armeda about a bunch of cool stuff going on, that’s been expanded and brilliant progress has been made since.
Since the beginning of the year, I’ve launched two different ventures that have grown immensely, and it’s been amazing to be a part of.
Yes, it is time! Although it’s not fully official or legal yet, it will be soon. Armeda will be reverting back to a regular WordPress blog at some point in the near future.
The latest and greatest news is alongside Tony Perez and Xiomara Armeda, we have formed a new company named – CubicTwo LLC. We are really excited and hope you are too, please stand by as we start this new venture, a lot of great things to come.
Armeda will continue to be my personal journal which will include the same lack of consistent posting about WordPress and other cool stuff I get to work with. 🙂 If anything it will transform the way I blog for the better.
It will enable me to write about more than just WordPress but design, methodologies, start-ups, security, and other random stuff in an effort to help others, and to just plain share my thoughts.
First let me wish you all a happy holiday season and I hope the upcoming year brings you the best!
It seems that Media Temple was exploited yesterday evening and you may be in danger. As you know, Armeda is on Media Temple and I really enjoy their service.
Last night I received an email which was followed up this morning with a second communication that their was some irregular activity:
