Wow! It's been some time since my last post.. so many things have happened .. some even exciting... The update from Drupal 6.12 to 6.19 went without a hitch and tomorrow I guess I'll have a look at how Drupal 7 is coming and well as catching up on the projects since the gaming realm.
I am back on the internets!. I have a new location and my face is half frozen. A bit of dentistry, you know. I had to read my blog here to realize that I had changed this email over to google apps.. But I am back. I thank all the companies who offer outsourcing for contacting me. I will get in touch when I have some more clients..;) I think I am going to change this site from Drupal to Wordpress in the next weeks, not that it makes much of a difference, with an alexa of 2.5M no one is reading this anyway! So I'm back in business, websites and design will take the back seat to consulting on applying current and emerging technology to outdated business models. More on this tomorrow.
Much of what I'm working on is elsewhere. http://automatedhome.ca is an aggregator of Augmented Reality and home automation info and videos. http://compusure.org is another Drupal instance where I am fooling around with the Geo module and some other related modules. More info will be over there. A bunch more domains should be popping up soon with some funky new technology. Anyway, this site is on pause for a while so check compusure.org or email me at email@example.com if you are interested in working on some AR projects in progress.
So I just switched firstname.lastname@example.org and some of the other email addresses over to google apps. I was unsure at first how to move a currently full email box and sent items but I came across a good quick run through here http://osdir.com/ml/GMailUsers/2009-08/msg00027.html that got me sorted out quickly.
As to Google apps for small biz; they are very straightforward to use and pretty much force you to walk through the help/FAQ which is a good thing. Anyway we shall see how it goes with google apps for this domain. I am using it for http://automatedhome.ca and a growing amount of others as well,
Well.. it seems like stuff works.. comments are held for consent.. which I should change.. Akismet is giving an error on line 707 or smth.. Will tackle in the am.. So after all the other madness at compusure.org i am not in any way prepared to fix anything here for at least a day or ... Anyway, a quick recip link to Drupal Directory .. Have a look..
I have been a little lax on updating this site, mind you.. The update to Drupal 6.10 was no picnic.. I should mention my personal blog http://craigryder.com (I plan on collecting all the Craig Ryders out there with world domination in mind! (among other things))
A quick site for a Texas Coast Condo rental at http://texascoastrental.com . A nice place to get away from the stifling summer heat and enjoy the Gulf.
http://getthemostonline.com .. a mostly terrible instance of PHPJobsite or something equally terrible..
http://automatedhome.ca my home hosted blog of sorts that I plan on selling home automation, security devices, and other nifty gadgets from eventually..
http://automatedhome.ca/WeBid - A mock up for an online auction/antiques online inventory and social net site.
... more to come..
Blu-Ray movie releases are often locked to a specific region of the world by the studios. I list confirmed region-free Blu-Rays and others that are unknown or indicated as region A or region B. Films marked as region free can be played in any Blu-Ray player.
Should you happen by here maybe you should register on http://compusure.org and fool around with the user groups and social networking bits that i have mashed into my project management and ticket system. It is a bit of a mess atm but it's a work in progress really.. most recently have been fiddling with adding feeds, things are still a little messy so feel free to lay some 411 on me..;)
Well, it seems to me that Wordpress touted as a blogging platform is finally coming together as a possible CMS. Using various plugins that add CMS-like functionality, one can do pretty much anything with a little struggle. Now Wordpress is no Drupal, and I must say that or the Drupal fairies that live in my blog will be angered and things will go to pot.. Anyways More to come on the Wordpress plugins that I love in an upcoming post. In this case the site owner wanted to keep his static front page and use Wordpress with the wonderful Nextgen gallery to manage his inventory. http://www.brittanicantiques.com is the static page and http://www.brittanicantiques.com/wp/ is WP of course. Now if Nextgen would come up with a nice way to rewrite the image urls the world would be a better place!
