I maintain a multitude of WP installations for clients and friends and
I'm planning on upgrading all these installations to 2.3 when it's

As I keep these installations up to date, and update them as soon as
possible after new releases are made, there's no need for the core
update system to check for updates, so I wrote a simple plugin which
disables the core update checking, and therefore disables any
notifications which might be displayed to users.

I thought it might be handy for other admins of multiple
installations, so you can get the plugin here:

It's pretty freaking simple, but any feedback is welcome.
