I whipped up a quick plugin to inject random dates for posting future updates in to my blog posts.
I needed a plugin that would pick a random date between today’s date, and a distant date in the future (about 2 years from now).
The plugin then needed to verify that the date is not already used on another post, and then schedule the new post.
I was showing it off the functionality to a friend when they point out that: “This plugin only has a range that goes up to the year 2200. You figure you’ll be dead by then?”
I thought for a moment and then replied: “No, I just figured some other technology will have replaced WordPress by then.”
