Optimisations for WordPress

I’m totally new to WordPress, so I have no idea how to do certain things, so I enabled an option to mail my blog entries to a specific account. I tried it, didn’t work….hmm….what’s going on here? sigh something to do when the night comes and I can’t sleep.
Another small peeve is that my posts are being date-stamped, but not time-stamped…have to tackle that annoyance a little later too.
Heading out to see “XXX2” and “Kingdom of Heaven”, it’s been awhile since the cinemas which still offer double features have put two that I’ve actually wanted to see together. Worth it or not, it would still only be a $10 investment :-)
