  • Ruby on Rails on YouTube

  • Webmin and Virtualmin: The web control panel alternative

    The maturity of Virtualmin and Webmin over the past  year or two has been impressive and is finally competitive against some of the more popular commercial control panels out there.  I've only now started to use Webmin on my office's intranet servers and have found the web-based interface to be a great alternative to using a terminal shell or remote desktop for managing the servers.  However, I've never actually used the Virtualmin control panel component live on the Internet.  In the end, I had concerns that clients on my server are not quite ready to move away from cPanel to manage their sites.  I also had concerns that my lack of experience with Virtualmin would wind me back to where I started, an unstable and possibly insecure server.  So in the end, I'm back where I started with using cPanel as my server's primary control panel.

  • Will KDE 4 be enough of a Mac for me?

    Those that have followed my writings (even from the WebCMSForum days) know I've spent about the past year or two dealing with an aging  PC.  Even the wife, who doesn't always appreciate the geek part of her husband, says it is time for a computer upgrade.  When she says it's time, you know the deadline is near to order up a new computer. For the past several years I've configured my home PCs with a dual-boot of Windows/Linux.  While there are some things I don't like about Apple's propriety…

  • Nick Lewis: Drupal is Part of the Problem

    Until this post by Nick Lewis, I've been in the camp with the folks that say PHP-based content management systems such as Drupal should be compatible with both PHP 4 and PHP 5.   After reading his post, I'm convinced he's correct that new development should be geared toward PHP 5.  It's hard to fight for the future when you continue to hold on to the past... Should Drupal move to PHP 5? In one word: absolutely. In one sentence: if we don't, the drupal project will die along with PHP. My…

  • Questioning CMS Consolidation

    CMS Watch has a very good article on their site titled, "Question CMS Consolidation".   The article serves as a reminder for IT and managers that, although technically feasible, an organization may not want to put everyone on the same content management system (CMS).  Why would an organization want to to consolidate their systems in the first place?  For those at top of the organization there may be some obvious reasons to unify the organization onto a single CMS. Many organizations are looking…
