I’ve upgraded the software running Planet Fleck. I was running a quite old version of Jeff Waugh’s wonderful Planet, and it wasn’t handling some of the feeds very well. That’s why James’ blog, for instance, looked like gibberish, as did the new Nature climate blog. But I wasn’t motivated enough to fix it (I hate upgrading software unless I absolutely have to because of the risk of things going wrong). The last straw was when it stopped displaying my blog. Can’t have that!

To my delight, once I upgraded it I realized I’d missed the pictures from Dave and Cate’s vacation! (It apparently wasn’t properly updating Dave’s blog either.)
