Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

I care not for jelly — neither the spreadable stuff nor the British version of Jello.

But I guess I like Jelly well enough, because I’ll be at the coworking space in midtown this Friday. I’m anticipating attending for a couple of hours in the morning, probably checking out around noon.

I’m not planning on a repeat performance of liveblogging, like I did at last month’s Manhattan gathering. I expect most of my time will be occupied with blog housekeeping, specifically updating this site to the latest and greatest version of WordPress (currently 2.5). Since my past experiences with the supposedly simple upgrade have always been bumpy, I figure I should take advantage of Jelly’s heavy contingent of tech-heads as a go-to help resource. I’m crossing my fingers.

I’m also considering bringing along my XO Laptop, just to show it off to anyone interested. I don’t think there are that many floating around in the U.S., so it’d be a novelty. That doesn’t exactly fit under the working-time concept for Jelly, but what the heck.

  1. hey costa,

    saw you’re heading to jelly. i was planning on going, but the list seems to be full. i’ve upgraded to wp2.5 and can tell you that i had very few issues.

    most common issues are with plugins. if you have any issues, you might be looking at having to deactivate all your plugins and then reactivate them one by one.

    feel free to email me with any q’s.

    good luck!

  2. Thanks Jaki. Yeah, I know I’m in the distinct minority, but everytime I’ve upgraded WP I’ve had problems, regardless of precautions. So I’ll be (happily) shocked if today’s goes smoothly.

    Sorry you couldn’t make it to Jelly today! I just arrived and am about to embark. Crossing my fingers…

  3. MY JELLY NYC: SUCCESS WITH WORDPRESS…

    Posting this from today’s Jelly co-working gathering in midtown Manhattan, which I said I’d attend. Go figure that I’d actually follow through.
    Maybe I should make a point to hit this joint every time it’s held. Because somethi…
