Thank You WordPress Automatic Upgrade

I know I’ve posted on this before … but WordPress automatic upgrade is an absolute godsend.

Those of us who have been blogging for years will remember the 30 to 45 minutes that a WordPress upgrade used to take … manually backing up the database, manually backing up the file structure, downloading the new ZIP file, unpacking, uploading via FTP, then upgrading the database structure … and hoping it all worked and you did everything right and nothing was broken.

Now … you click a button and it happens. The magic of technology!

Makes me think of the prototypical when-I-was-young-we-walked-10-miles-to-school-in-the-snow-uphill-both-ways stories.

In this case, we really did, you know.
