I should remember these, but if I don’t I’ll know to check here.

About this Blog’s Software:
This blog uses WordPress. I like it a lot. The only thing I don’t like is the frequency at which updates are released, and these updates can be critical to apply! I used SVN to install WordPress and also to keep it up-to-date with a fraction of the effort of manual downloads and updating. SVN is the BEST method to manage WordPress install and updates. Here’s how:

== Install WordPress in the Beginning ==
mkdir ~/public_solidworks
cd public_solidworks
svn co http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.7 .
#get latest version number from: http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/

== Update WordPress to latest Version ==
cd public_solidworks
svn sw http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.7.1/ .
