Gundam 00 Episode 20

Char’s Exia?

What is it with Gundams and red Char colors?

Episode 20 is good. Last time Lockon took a hit meant for Virtue and got injured. The UN and the world is serious about eliminating the Gundams. In this episode we see the Throne Gundams are essentially wiped out and Veda is completely compromised.

The result of this is that the real Gundams from Celestial Being (not the Throne knock offs) were unlocked. Setsuna drives the new Gundam like Cloud Strife at the end of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. All that is missing is a Sephiroth like character and the scene would be complete.

The action is getting good. With only one Trinity Gundam pilot left alive, I wonder how Celestial Being will re-group?

Playing with WordPress 2.5 beta

I keep a SVN based copy of the new WordPress 2.5-beta1 for playing with. I’m doing this because at sometime the version I’m running 2.3.x might not be supported for patches. Going from 2.2 to 2.3 was a no brainer, tags are a huge difference. 2.5 might not get me to jump for a while.

On the outside I can’t see much reason for not converting. Some of my plugins don’t work but that ought to be resolved by the time 2.5 is released. If the performance is improved then that’s a good reason right there.

What will get me to hold off is the little things. I dislike the new interface. The 2.3.x shows it’s age meaning that it is well thought out and is missing some pet peeves from 1.5 or 2.0. Version 2.5 feels like they are trying to get to “Web 2.0” and are not making it. The organization is odd after using WordPress for a couple of years. The widget interface is downright counter intuitive for me.

I’ll keep using 2.3.x for a while and just see how 2.5 turns out.
