I remember a finer, golden age
When all things could be clearly understood
And callow youth would never cheek a sage
On the wisdom of elders, dare not intrude.
No more beautiful a tongue has been heard
Than English, foil of Shakespeare and Milton!
Treat with reverence each and every word
Care for your language like a son, my son.
Keep it tied up, dried out, trapped in a cell!
Evrythng evolves, the future wont wait
2 l8! LOL! lang is aliV, 3 & well

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!
Actually I didn’t find the bug, instead I ripped out the backend and replaced it with a much better one. The Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group is therefore operating all correctly again!
