  • 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.

  • 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…

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…
