Rudie

I am saddened by the death of Joe Strummer. The Clash were influential to me in many ways, and I still listen to them on a regular basis. Goodbye Joe, thanks for all the great words and music. Now we’re all lost in the supermarket…

Holes

I got myself a cordless drill for Christmas. It makes holes in things. I’ve already taught the girls how to use it. Every 6 year old, and almost 4 year old, should know how to use a cordless drill, right?

Drupal!

Lots of work has been happening in the Drupal world lately, and the admin section is getting better by the day. Hopefully everyone working on it will keep up the current level of improvements, and we’ll soon have a nice little system to deploy.

I’ve not yet deployed Drupal here because it still doesn’t work the way I do. I think if you’re considering a new publishing system to replace your current system you’ll find two things:

  1. Systems that conform to the way you work
  2. Systems that force you to conform to the way they work

Right now Movable Type is the first one, while Drupal is the second one. In my mind all systems should probably be able to conform to the way you work, while being able to suggest that the way they work might be a better alternative. (This reminds me of the Mac OS X dock controversy.) Drupal’s taxonomy is probably a lot more powerful than Movable Type’s category system right now, of course things change quickly on the internet…

cite!

About a month or so ago I shot an email to Mark Pilgrim about using the <cite> tag, and if I was using it right, and lo and behold that tag is back in a big way. My question was about what tag I should use when mentioning a book or movie title, but I guess a person is another valid thingy to cite. I also need to start using the cite attribute in my blockquotes…

Break!

Well, I’m enjoying the time off. I didn’t quite get done everything I wanted to get done, but I’ve still got a few days.
