When checking the comments and spam in my wordpress administrator I saw that WordPress got an update a few hours ago. The new 2.0.4 release contains several important security updates, so you are strongly advised to upgrade. In addition to the security enhancements, there are many other small bug fixes, as well.
I first upgraded a test/development site to check the upgrade procedure was working and then went forward and upgraded my production blog. It was very painless, I hope it is the same for you.

Our dear Mac OS X loves to use DNS, for instance when browsing the internet every connection attempt is followed by a DNS lookup (as far as I know).

I read this article from Robert X. Cringely on the net neutrality debate that’s going on at the moment. What I liked about it is the emphasis he put on the services ISP’s are adding to the internet connection that only add to the price and aren’t selectable. Myself I need a reliable, fast enough, internet connection without any bells and whistles. I don’t care about ISP provided email addresses, webspace or spamfilters I take care of that myself and I guess you do too otherwise you wouldn’t be reading my blog.
