WordPress 2.8.2 and Other Updates

I updated to WordPress 2.8.2 today. I know it’s been 2 weeks since I updated to 2.8.1 and you might be wondering why the WP updates seems so fast nowadays. Quoting official wordpress site:

WordPress 2.8.2 fixes an XSS vulnerability. Comment author URLs were not fully sanitized when displayed in the admin. This could be exploited to redirect you away from the admin to another site. Download 2.8.2 or automatically upgrade from the Tools->Upgrade page of your blog’s admin.

I know the risks and damage potential of cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities and the need to patch it as soon as possible hence this speedy action. Thanks to the wordpress devs for the quick patch availability.

And similar to my other wordpress updates post, I am sharing some topics that I am brewing for this blog. For me this is an good practice and benefit is 2 parts

  1. To inform the readers on what to expect next
  2. Put some pressure on me (the author) to stick to the blog post game plan.

For the next two weeks I plan to write something about:

Sorry if the topics are vague or misleading. But I will try to give details when its ready, so watch out for it ok?

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at Trinoma Cinema THX

Raven and I watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at the Trinoma THX Cinema last weekend. We reserved tickets via sureseats.com since we know that this is the first weekend of the film showing. It’s our first time to try Trinoma’s Lazy Boy seats and we really had a great time watching the movie.

I want to post some video trailer from youtube, but most of the video trailers I saw have disabled the embed URL hence I will just continue with my blog post without the video.

So my feedback (don’t worry I will not post some spoiler 🙂 )
1. Trinoma Lazy Boy+THX is a cool experience. Very comfortable and it provides a relaxing experience.

2. I understand that that it is really a challenge to translate the 652 pages of the book into a 152-minute movie, but my personal feeling is HP6:  Half Blood Prince is kinda “bitin”. For the benefit of the non-pinoy readers of this blog, the word “Bitin” is filipino and it roughly translates to english as “hanging position” or some sort of a “cliffhanger”. Being a Harry Potter fan, I’m not surprised at the ending, but I am looking forward for some scenes at the end. The good thing about that “bitin” feeling is that it makes me (and I hope the other Harry Potter fans crave more for the movie of the last book : Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Overall the movie is good. And I recommend that you watch it (even you are not a fan of the book).

If you have watched the movie too and like to share your experience, feel free to leave some comments here.
