To explore the tech world, though mostly focusing on iOS, Django, and Drupal development Sometimes it isn’t the perfect that gets in the way of the good, but the revolutionary gets in the way of the evolutionary.

Still trying

Still trying to be more consistent here. I guess I am waiting for some major Drupal or programming inspiration to strike and then I can write about it.

I am going to be reviewing Drupaltin, a new Drupal/vBulletin integration project. It looks promising so I will report on it later. Also, I am processing my thoughts on a possibly needed new drupal hook function. More to come a bit later as well. I better keep at this, since Tracy has encouraged me to keep up this blog as well as Skejo.com.

Also I have recently published two new articles on www.vbdrupal.org, about the need for Drupal and vBulletin forums mixed. Until then.....

Once Again

Wow. So I am following up an entry called 'Too Long' by waiting forever to make a new post.

Drupal 5.0 Out

Well, Drupal 5.0 is finally out, 8 months after the last major release, 4.7.

Too long

Well, it has been a pretty long time since I last posted. Been really busy with the holiday and transitioning to a new job. I have been reviewing much of the Drupal 5.0 changes from 4.7. Also, besides tying up some loose at my old job, I am also reviewing a few of the initial sites that my new position wants to migrate into Drupal. Some of their new sites are simple transistional that will be simple to move, but others have hundreds of pages whose URLs must be preserved, as well as much of the functionality. I will be reviewing current Drupal modules to see if much of the needs are met right now, but also might have to code new modules for our purposes.

New Job

Wow, it has been a few weeks since I have updated here, and much has happened. First I have received a new job. I have finally made the career move to full time website development, and better yet, I will be primarily using Drupal. A cool search marketing, lead generation and general online publishing company has been making the switch from a custom CMS to Drupal and had room for a technical developer to help out full time, and they picked me.

Acidfree Resource Usage

Over this weekend, I received a nasty-gram from the hosting company of my main Drupal website. I was hogging all the resources they said, and I must remove the offending application, Acidfree or I would be bumped up into their semi-dedicated 'solution' which costs 5 times as much as the shared hosting package. Though it comes with more disk space, transfer volume and RAM/CPU usage, my site does not max out the current specs, except for the RAM/CPU usages.

Excursions into the past, Trebuchets

In an effort to show that I am a well-rounded individual, and to break any notions that I am slave to 'current' technologies, here is the trebuchet that my brother-in-law and I made a little while ago. For some history on these machines, check out www.trebuchet.com, or just Google the topic.

Greg's Resume/CV

Attached is my current resume. All inquiries for short or long term contracts are welcome.

How Skejo Runs

I have finally submitted my Skejo.com showcase entry at Drupal.org. The full text is also captured at How Skejo.com Works. Since Skejo.com is really my flagship, design/configuration site using Drupal, I made a long forum post there, highlighting what I have done, and what Drupal is able to do. Hopefully it inspires others to try bigger things, and it just might drive a little traffic to Skejo as well. :)

Here is the text from my post at Drupal.org.
