  • Technology Break 2009 Begins

    Every year, I like to slow down my technology usage for a few weeks. I don't think as human beings we were meant to be immersed in the huge quantity of digital information that we are today. From the moment I am awake to the moment I go to bed, my body is being loaded information. The email, cell phone, and the Internet seem to have a never ending presence in the lives of us IT folks. I don't have much control with removing technology from my work day, but I do have options in my personal life.…

  • Clearing the weeds in taxonomy

    A number of content management systems allow for data to be classified using taxonomy (sometimes called categories or tags in a CMS).  Most of us that use CMS and taxonomy aren't experts in how best to structure our vocabulary and usually end up with a mess of terms.  In the end, we have a mess on our hand and wonder how best we should approach cleaning up the terms we're using. A blog post by Lars Trieloff, The Art of Mining a Folksonomy, gives some great suggestions for cleaning up your…

  • Drive your own website

    I've never agreed and disagreed so much with one article as this one from The Sydney Morning Herald, Drive your own website. I agree... I hate being held to ransom. And I'm sure you do, too. But that's the scenario you're creating when you hand over your website to a web designer or developer and relinquish control over when and how you can change your content... ...That's why I think it's vital for small-business owners to use their own content management systems (CMS). My recommendation is to…

  • CMS Report Seeking Sponsors

    During the past couple years, people have inquired about buying ad space here at  While someone wanting to place a banner on my site could always use Google's Adwords, most of the inquiries seem to want a more direct approach.  I've always been reluctant to host the ad banners on my own server and, until recently, I wasn't impressed with a lot of the banner ad services available for publishers such as me.  Luckily, things change. I'm happy to announce that I'll be selling 125x125…

  • Pardon the Mess

    This Drupal site of mine has taken quite a bit of beating the past couple weeks.  While Mollom has been protecting this site well enough from the comment spammers, it isn't designed to prevent the bots from trying to ping me so much.  It has been an incredible experience to see the bots try to open every possible URL and directory here at  But probably the real stress on the site has been my testing of numerous contributed modules that are still under development.  Probably using…
