Barack Obama Rally Bloomington, IN

So I shot video of most of the speech.

UPDATED: Link to my video of the rally.

Have photos on Flickr too.

Rob Riggle (from the Daily Show) was there as well.

I paid attention to him and the bouncing gigantic beach balls until Senator Obama finally arrived.

The line(s) to get in was pretty crazy.

Assembly Hall wasn’t full, but was pretty close.

Looks like things are a bit faster

I have disabled all but 3 plug-ins for WordPress and things seem to be responding a little quicker now.

It was really bad for a minute; it took about 26 seconds for the site to load yesterday… ouch

Now I need to figure out why Twitter Tools posted my daily digest the first day and hasn’t since.

Then need to get the old blog stuff here and fix the log.  My list of “WordPress To Dos” is getting much shorter.

Even closer…

Thanks to this post, I think I now have the silly prefix removed from the blog WordPress to Twitter handshake.

Really getting into wordpress

I am getting really into WordPress.  I have no ide why I didn’t use it more in the past.

I don’t think it was this easy to setup WordPress on my server the last time I attempted to get it configured.

Just upgraded and installed some plug-ins.

Trying to get WP and Twitter to talk without a feedback loop.
