The New Wisdom

Moving Forward?

Is this really an improvement? It’s certainly an improvement for me. The posting interface is so much more advanced than Blogger’s. Hell, everything is more advanced. I can manage comment spam much more easily, WordPress plugins add functionality that make working easier, and swapping themes to change the look of the site is a breeze. [...]


I cleaned the haiku database of hundreds of spam haiku too. Feel free to get writing again.


The ease with which I upgraded The New Wisdom from WordPress 1.5 to 2.0.4 has convinced me to stop lollygagging and switch away from Blogger.

Haiku Search

Haiku Search Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Searching haiku is ready. It’s not totally complete, but for the most part it’s finished. You can’t use quotation marks to search for exact phrases yet, but that’s coming soon.

It’s the 1 month anniversary of The Duc Pond’s Haiku Repository. In 31 days we’ve amassed 218 poems. That’s more than 7 a day! Thanks for your participation! It would be worthless without it.
