Okay, sure…reinventing the wheel sucks. When you look at it from the 50 thousand foot view it is nearly always a good idea to build our selves up on top of the accomplishments of others. There is a quote to that point:
What Des-Cartes did was a good step. You have added much several ways, & especially in taking ye colours of thin plates into philosophical consideration. If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants [sic]
The only issue is that we aren’t all so lucky to be able to follow amazing minds like Des-Cartes.
I have always had a love/hate relationship with wordpress plugins. In many situations they work, but there is a huge issue with testing and confirming the process before releasing. Only a select few of the plugins I know of even care about testing.
Its really a pain, but I don’t think I have enough time to write the plugins to provide all of the features I want on my blog =
Maybe I’ll figure this out some day.
