That Feeling 31 Mar 2011

You know that feeling... the one where your 2000 meters up staring out over snow covered mountains shaking snow off your skis, looking down the hill, picking the line, clearing your mind, ready for that one last push, sinking down as your skis carve through the snow, leaning into corners as you sweep round effortless turns. Then you reach the bottom, look back up, breath in deeply and sink into an adrenaline induced warm cloudy feeling. Now listen to this - http://youtu.be/GIAIrNUYeJ8?hd=1 and re-read.

Kickstarting a Drupal Module 12 Feb 2011

Here's a novel idea, why not use Kickstarter.com to fund module development? For example (because we can never have to many!) a new Image Slideshow module.

Retiring the drupal.org forum. 06 Feb 2011

Lazy Mans Guide to Aeropress Brewing 17 Jan 2011

For well over a year now I've been using an Aeropress. I started with a crappy espresso machine, then moved on to cafetiere, still dabble with filters (Chemex is on my list of things to buy) but the one piece of equipment I've stuck with has been my Aeropress. Much to the cringe of many people I can't actually brew well with the Aeropress. Every single brew is different, I'm currently drinking what's quite possibly the worst cup of coffee I've made from it in a long while. This is because I purposely brew different, I like to experiment with...
