Early Friday Roundup

Early Friday Roundup

Was a bit late last week for a round-up so I’m doing it a little earlier today. Topping the list would be the news on Inq7.net that Epixtar deciding not to pursue the “legal approach” against me. Besides, there wasn’t really anything to pursue.


  • Marc Javellana releases his very first WordPress theme, Davao Bounty. Pretty neat. I would have suggested he named it Durian Ecstasy. :D
  • There’s a new WordPress Theme Competition here. Grand prize winner takes an iPod Video 60GB and a Sony PSP for the runner up. I better finish that theme I’ve been working on for months. :D
  • WordPress 2.0.1 is out with 114 bug fixes. This would be a good time to upgrade my blog.
  • Firefox is also out so if you’re on 1.5 already, just hit the update button (Help -> Apply Downloaded Update). They did not reveal what security holes this update fixes though.
  • If you haven’t read this week’s Blog-O-Rama, check out Marc Macalua’s interview on Manila Bulletin for SEO Philippines and learn what’s the different between a good blogger and a successful one.
  • Check out InDigital’s CES Special 2006 (a vidcast from Revision 3). Cool gadgets galore!

Anobody else know any 2-character .PH ccTLD? There’s mb.com.ph but that’s all I’m familiar with.
