Day Off

Tue, 2006-01-03 00:56

It was another goofing off day for me here, and not in the usual way because Bloglines was down for much of the morning. I did some work on this site, can't you tell how much better it looks? Ok fine so the design ain't all that innovative but it is original and you should be able to find your way around without too much trouble. I do have more design ideas in mind, so maybe by the time anybody reads this the website will look all smooth and pimped out and this post will come across as just a tad snobbish. A girl can dream, right?

Dries visited one of my websites today, a genuine brush with greatness for me I am sure. I did happen to donate a pittance toward the purchase of his new computer, and he was also gracious enough to thank me personally through e-mail. While the amount I gave was embarrassingly small compared to the benefit I have gotten from the Drupal project, if everyone who has enjoyed the software would give just a token then Dries could have that computer easily, and something for his lovely bride as well. I wish them only the best.

And now for a word to those who do not enjoy the Drupal as much as I do: Fine. Use something else. I was put off from Drupal at first because I had read that it was too difficult, and perhaps overkill for a small site. Once I found the courage to try it for myself I was overwhelmed with the possibilities. Discovering where to find a few obscure menu options is trivial when compared to fighting a monstrous CMS that is designed to do a certain thing and only that certain thing. Sure Drupal has it's quirks but it is nothing that can't be dealt with. It is all part of the adventure.

Merry Christmas

I love a new toy for Christmas! This year I gave myself a shiny new weblog.
