Dreamhost one-click upgrades
I whimsically (after backing everything up) tried Dreamhost’s new(ish) One-Click upgrades. Since I installed both notes and whatcartoon.com using One-Click installs of WordPress, I decided to give One-Click upgrades a shot. I already upgraded this site (notes) by hand, but What Cartoon was woefully out of date. It all worked very smoothly on the first shot. I am both surprised and pleased.
