Hello Ziggy


This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation– okay, yeah, it’s just a plugin. When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Ziggy Stardust in the upper right of your admin screen on every page. All thanks goes to Matt for actually writing the plugin, and David Bowie for being Ziggy Stardust. Yes, this is just a fork of Hello Dolly.
