I’ve updated the Practical Useful website to WordPress version 2.3.3. All seems to have gone well!
I have also set up practicaluseful.com to be my OpenID identifier by forwarding OpenID requests on to my MyOpenID.com account. I did this by following Sam Ruby’s excellent instructions.
I plan to add OpenID as a comment mechanism on this site, as soon as I can find a plugin that works and doesn’t break my Askimet spam filter.
I note as well that PracticalUseful.com has been my main personal website since January 2003 meaning I’ve flitted past the five year anniversary without even noticing it!
