Twin Cities Drupal Logo!

I whipped up a Twin Cities Drupal Logo for our upcoming Twin Cities User Group meeting.  The logo is below. 

We will try to broadcast the meeting via Ustream.tv in real time! Tune in and check out the techies.


TC Drupy!

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 to Drupal 6 Conversion - 1 Day!

Today I was able to convert an existing site from D5 to D6, along with about a hundred other tasks!  There was a lot of waiting around for queries and sumbits, but we got the job done on one day shift! 

Just 24 more sites to go!

The New Developers War on Drupal 5

Apparently the Drupal Meta Tags module for D5 is not longer supported.  If you are using Update Status module (like I am) to keep track of new module releases, you will get a notice that you have an unsupported installed.  If you get email notices (like I do) you will get an email each day telling you of this unsupported module.  

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.
