PaperCut listed in the SpreadFirefox Top 250

We at PaperCut are huge fans of the Mozilla Firefox web browser, and the Mozilla Thunderbird email client. We all use these products internally everyday.

Not only do they provide a great user experience, you’re not as susceptible to the viruses and spyware that plague the Microsoft products.

If you’re not using these products now … then start!

Get Thunderbird!Get Firefox!

To help promote these great products we’ve put links on our emailStripper page (which gets plenty of hits), and also on the footer of our blogs below.

We’ve only had these links on the site, and we’re already ranked 179 on the SpreadFirefox Top referrers page and rising fast. We’re happy to try to promote these products any way we can, but it’s also nice to get this recognition!

(PS: Coincidently, I’m wearing my Firefox T-Shirt today too!)

Layout is fixed with a WordPress Template

OK, the blog is back looking quite close to what it used to. Chris’ blog is still running the old style, if you want to compare the differences.

I’ve implemented the new style using the new WordPress 1.5 templating system, which will make things easier to upgrade in the future. It should also be much easier to share a template between blogs just with a symlink to another blog’s theme directory. This should make it much simpler to keep all the PaperCut blogs looking the same and result in less maintenance over time.

Thanks again to the WordPress dev team for such a great product.

Upgraded to WordPress 1.5

WordPress 1.5 was released this week, and I’ve only just found the time to upgrade. The upgrade process was a breeze.

I’m still running the default theme, so all I need to do now is to apply re-apply the PaperCut Software template. I’m wondering whether it’s worth creating a PaperCut theme, or just hack the template like we did previously. The themes seem to be a more manageable solution, but it’s probably a bit more work too. I guess it’s something to investigate over the next few days.
