I recently redid the Nimfahtography site for my wife's photography using Drupal. If you haven't seen the new site, check it out. If you want to see all of the technical details of how I did it and why I did it, you can see the write up here. This is just one example of something you can build in Drupal in less than a week (working a couple hours a day on it).

Here it is! I am official!

Drupal Tank

| Thursday, January 15, 2009
I attended my first Drupal Tank meeting this past Tuesday. For those of you don't know, the company I work for uses Drupal for their website, and thus I am very involved in the Drupal community. This meeting was for all of the Utah Drupal users. We had a good meeting, although there was a period where we spent way too much time deciding what we will talk about next time. All the same, some of the good resources I came away with:
There were several other things gone over as well, and overall a very good and useful for meeting.

If you haven't heard of Drupal, you have probably used it. There are thousands of sites using Drupal, and lots of really big names using it as well (The Onion, Sony, and many more). You can find a good looking list here. Pretty impressive.

Google Chrome and Hotmail

| Wednesday, January 14, 2009
I fixed it!! Hooray! So if there is anyone else out there that is also using Google Chrome, but is having issues with Hotmail, you can fix it with a fairly easy fix.

  • Right-click the Google Chrome shortcut

  • Click Properties

  • Paste the line below to the end of the Target field.

  • --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1 Safari/525.19"

That is all. It should work now without any issues. If you are having problems, then make sure that you have a space between the end of the current text in the target field, and the text above (the first '--'). Here is what my target string now looks like:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Tenney\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1 Safari/525.19"

Oh yeah, what it does, is it fakes out Hotmail to make it think that it is really Safari. Darn Hotmail folks won't let Google just have their own... :).

Found the fix here.

Can't say much more than that. The Utes have earned the respect of the nation and are probably going to be the number 2 team when all is said and done (too bad they couldn't play for the National Championship because I think they could have won). Utah has been the best team through all their games this year. Thanks for making it such an awesome year Utah. This is the best Ute team ever (probably about equal to the 04-05 team but this year's team had a chance to prove it). I'll definitely be enjoying this one for the next 7 months. Thank you Utah!
