Just upgraded to WordPress 2.5 using subversion, took me a total of 5 minutes to do (excellent). Disabled all the plugins, ran the following command and updated the database. If your going to try it yourself I would suggest that you read the documentation provided by the WordPress Team before you try. You do of course, need shell access to your webpages before you can use Subversion.
I did have a problem with the sideshow part of NextGen, but a quick scan about told me that I was missing the file “imagerotator.swf” from my installation directory. All I had to do was download JW Image Rotator, extract the file “imagerotator.swf” and copy it to my nextgen-gallery plugin directory.
I’ve been using SportTrack Software in conjunction with my Garmin Forerunner 305 over the last year and a half, and I’ve got to say, it’s a brilliant piece of software. That good in fact that I’ve even parted with £15 for the pleasure (money well spent IMHO). It tells me how many miles I’ve ran with my running shoes (really handy) and keeps an inventory of all my running kit. You can even export your run or race to Google Maps and Google Earth, which I think is a brilliant idea and pretty good if your keeping a blog or running diary.
I also use the Inline Google map pluging for wordpress to display my maps, downloadable from here.

I’ve just installed the Google Analytics Plugin which allows you to track visits to your website for free, with the proviso that you have to create an account first of course. You can find out more about it at the google page here and sign up for free here.
