Change theme to improve user experience

I changed the theme of this Blog.
The purpose is to make it display faster and looks clear.
I removed some gadgets on the side column. Change the color to emphasize the good stuffs I recommend.
I also add a Google search (You can find it on the menu, named Google Custom Search) to replace the search provided by Movable Type.
I received email from my Hosting provider, Dreamhost. It said my load is over the limit.
mt-search.cgi has one of the biggest problems.
Spammer is so strong. I have to stop using mt-search.
Anyway, Google Search is good. I do like it and it is my first choice in Search Engines.
You may like it or not. If you have any comments for this theme change, just leave it below.

Upgrade phpBB by Automatic update package

I have a phpBB board with some modification.
To upgrade it from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1 is not that difficult.
Previously, I have to record all modification I made on it and backup everything and upgrade it through a patched package or changes package. After upgrade I have to do all modification again, because they are all gone during upgrade processing.
Now Automatic update package is released with phpBB 3.0.1.
It is a good news for me.
This update method is the preferred method for updating. This package allows detecting changed files automatically and merges changes if needed.
The automatic update package is holding – contrary to the others – only the update informations for updating the last released version to the latest available version. These package is meant for use with the automatic update tool.
To perform the update, either follow the instructions from the Administration Control Panel->System Tab – this should point out that you are running an outdated version and will guide you through the update – or follow the instructions listed below.
* Go to the downloads page and download the latest update package listed there, matching your current version.
* Upload the archives contents to your phpBB installation – only the install folder is required. Upload the whole install folder, retaining the file structure.
* After the install folder is present, phpBB3 will go offline automatically.
* Point your browser to the install directory, for example
* Choose the “Update” Tab and follow the instructions
During update, it will compare the difference between current files and new files. Then it ask the FTP information and do all the changes for you.
It is easy and fast.
