  • Oh, it is so cold!

    This has been a very cold week in the Dakotas. Sunday morning the temperature dropped to around -14 degrees Fahrenheit (that's around -26 degrees Celsius). These are real temperatures and not wind chill. Needless to say, I am not spending a whole lot of time outside this month. However, these cold temperatures are very geek friendly. I am spending my time at the computer and getting some very needed things done. Some of the items I have been working on that may be of interest…

  • Slow to post...

    Unfortunately, I'm a little under the weather with some type of cold bug. So if you're wondering why I've been slow to post "featured stories", now you know. I also found being sick and installing a CMS don't mix. I tried installing the latest development version of Drupal at to find out I installed it here at Luckily, I was able to quickly restore the site. Either way, this sucks...

  • Text editor, Advertisement

    I'm in the middle of switching the text editor on CMS Report from FCKeditor to TinyMCE. Both are fine WYSIWYG editors, but I have seen some problems lately so this is a good time to try something different. The text editor is available to those who have open a free account here at CMS Report. The CSS in the Drupal theme I'm using isn't quite compatible with the TinyMCE editor so I'll be doing some tweaking in the next week or so. During the past few months, I've been getting inquiries…

  • cPanel 11: Newest version of the control panel coming soon

    When I originally started hosting my own sites on a server (VPS/VDS), I opted for the easy way to manage those sites by using an online control panel. I originally started with Plesk but eventually moved to cPanel. cPanel at the time seemed to be the control panel everyone was talking about. However, I quickly found that although I liked cPanel it seemed to be dated by the fact that its primary web server support was for Apache 1.x. Support for Apache 2.x was promised in the next version of…

    What seems like a very long time since I first heard about and ordered the new Drupal book, Pro Drupal Development, it finally arrived at my doorstep.

The book is written in a very easy, well organized, and informative writing style. This book is perfect for people like me and most of you, the Drupal Developer Wannabe. I'm no dummy and have written Web pages since…
