I fell off the Earth!

It has been a while since I have blogged here.  Just a lot of stuff going on this Summer.

Right now I am in Drupal University.  That's what I am calling it now - I am dedicating all extra time and energy in my life to mastering Drupal.  

Drupal 5.19

There's yet another security update to the Drupal software - Drupal 5.19 and Drupal 6.13.  Time to touch all those sites again! 

I have been working on converting sites over from D5 to D6 lately.  This will be a slow and steady process since most will require re-theming for Drupal 6.  It's going to be a long summer and probly long fall too.  All new development is in Drupal 6.

That Light was a Train!

After a solid week of blocked emails and access issues, it seems that Site5.com suffers from the same issues as HostGato.com.  As successful domain hosts, they sell accounts to everyone, you - me and the spammer.  When this happens their servers are marked on black-lists, and we suffer because our email gets called spam.  This is maddening!

Hosting Blues - The Light at the End of the Tunnel!

Over the past few weeks I have been looking for a new hosting service.  The service I need is for a number of small sites I maintain that are low traffic Drupal sites.  By using a Reseller account I can reduce the cost of hosting 10-20 sites to a single large account.  For larger mission critical commercial sites, I use either Advanttage Labs (Pajunas) or Sundays Energy, as they provide another level of backups and support.
