Why I Love Getting Dozens of Automated Emails…

I love getting good automatic messages

I’ve been getting dozens and dozens of automated emails this morning from sites all around the internet and… it’s making me really happy!

The message?  Simple.  From the dozens of sites I’ve built and maintain their software’s up to date enough to do their own security updates automatically.  And let me know that…

Your site has updated to WordPress 4.2.3

Howdy! Your site at [your URL] has been updated automatically to WordPress 4.2.3.

No further action is needed on your part. For more on version 4.2.3, see the About WordPress screen:
[your URL] /wp-admin/about.php

WordPress released their update to answer several security concerns.  By default recent WordPress releases have been configured to automatically keep themselves up to date.  And give you a little head’s up in email.

Aaah, the joys of receiving tons of nearly-identical messages from all around the internet.
