I updated to the latest WP app yesterday. Today, I opened it with hopes of shooting off a quick review and it was thoroughly unusable.
As soon as I opened the app: I recieved a “Communication Error” alert immediately followed by a “Bad username or password” prompt. I double/triple/quadruple checked my password and proceeded to create a new post. In rapid succession I receive ten+ alerts and then finally the app froze. I restarted my IP4 and tried again. What followed was another round of rapid fire alert boxes succeeded by a frozen app. I am now hoping that the app will be updated immediately and that the updates will be worth the trouble.
Deleted the WP app, then reinstalled. I no longer have the “bad username” etc.
Instead, now I get a “500 internal server error.”
The App store is filling up with frustrated people… Good to know it’s not me.

I can see Balmer leading the pack, tongue flying Gene Simons style, and baton in hand.
Today, Apple changed it’s policy concerning compilers. This reconsideration of their position is definitely a good direction. While I agree that inserting “intermediate layers between the platform and the developer ultimately produces sub-standard apps and hinders the progress of the platform.” (as Jobs explained in an email shortly after the policy decision was made) I believe it is best left up to the user so long as it doesn’t decrease security.
I am looking forward to seeing where this is going. Enjoy the ride.
Never hastily create a villain. Villains are multidimensional. Develop the dimensions of all characters, then decide their ‘tagonist position.
This is a trouble spot for many writers. Villains become one-dimensional beings. They are evil and only evil. This lowers the villain to a one focus and driven being rather than a rational creature with complex thoughts and ideas.
In much of Christian writers’ fiction this is precisely the case: Villains are black, evil beings that are driven with only one thought—whatever impetus they are given.
A writer must get to know the character, discover why they behave the way they do, and then develop their intent.
