Help! Upgraded to Wordpress 3.0 Without Deactivating Plugins and Backup!

While updating my website today, I saw this one-liner announcement with a link to upgrade to Wordpress latest version 3.0.

Happily I clicked on the link, activated the automatic upgrade option and successfully installed the new Wordpress 3.0.

"Sucessfully installed" was what the automatic software installer flashed on the screen.

HOWEVER, my heart sank when I refreshed my website and found it reduced to just one line of message on the screen "Fatal error: .../wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 289".

I tried to backspace my admin control panel, but it also flashed "Fatal error: .../wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 289".

A Disrupt-a-Saurus T-shirt from Traffic Geyser!

I got a big fat soft bubble pack envelope in my snail mail box.
It came all the way from Traffic Geyser in the US.
At first I thought is was money or maybe some video in a box stuff.
To my pleasant surpise, the package contain a t-shirt with a dinosaur print.
Why did Traffic Geyser mail me a t-shirt? Did I win some contest that
I forgotten I joined?
All I know is I am both an affiliate and a customer of Traffic Geyser.--

2-day Basic Videography Course Batch 1007 Completed

Completed Training a new batch of 7 participants. This is another creative bunch with bright ideas. Look at the video they directed and produced. All I did was provide the skeleton script and act. The guys figured out the rest, from lighting to props. In these 2 full days, I imparted my videography skills. Day 1 was using the camcorder with light and sound. Day 2 was editing with Sony Vegas Pro on PC notebooks. Beyond technical aspects, the course includes storytelling. The art of conveying a message with moving visuals. By the way, it's not about home videos nor movies. This hands-on workshop is for serious corporate learners. People who want to make videos with a call to action. Here's more about the 2-day Basic Videography Course. Held in VideoLane's Bukit Merah Studio, Singapore.
