I have been looking forward to upgrading sites to Drupal 7 for a while now. While I have played around with it a bit, you never really know how things work until you use it for a real working site. So I might as well test the upgrade process on my blog here. Before I do, however, I have to make sure everything is in place so that the site still works. Does everything have to be the same? No. But I do not want to lose major functionality
One of the first things to check is whether or not contributed modules will function in Drupal 7. Is there a Drupal 7 version? Is there an upgrade path? I started by taking a cursory look at the modules I currently use to see their Drupal 7 status.
A few months ago, Adriel Hampton convinced me through his incessant tweeting to give Empire Avenue a try. For those of you, who are not familiar, Empire Avenue—or EAv, as it often goes by—is a stock market for social media, where you can invest in people based on how they use social media.
If you haven’t tried it already, you can check it out at empireavenue.com. My stock ticker on the Ave is e(WEBDRUM).
A Chasing After Wind is not just a short story collection; another story surrounds the telling of these stories. These contemporary stories walk the border between science fiction and fantasy, where moments of humor emerge from tragedies. Is this struggle in vain, a chasing after wind? Or does everyone deserve a second chance?
I am a web designer and developer with a passion for web standards, accessibility, usability, and information architecture. My toolbox includes hand-coding XHTML and CSS, Drupal, ColdFusion, and all things Adobe.
When my head is not in the web, I enjoy walks with my wife and dog through our lovely neighborhood (walks with our cat proved counterproductive), time with friends, traveling, reading, movies, fantasy and science fiction, Blu-Ray, a nice meal now and then, and all things iPhone.
If I were a flavor of ice cream, trust me, it would not be IE6.
