Panic Coding 30 Sep 2010

What started out as an amusing joke at work one day has turned into quite an interesting concept. After mentioning it to my colleagues and developer friends on IRC this seemed to snowball into some kind of monster. This is Panic Coding. This idea is simple, you have a development environment with your current project, nothing else, the bare minimum to work on that project/issue. You then have an hour to fix it. At the end of this hour your development environment is wiped clean. If you've not completed it then tough luck.   So how does this work then,...

Drupalcon Copenhagen 2010 Swag! 04 Sep 2010

I think the dust has settled form Drupalcon CPH, at least my hangover is now well and truly gone (although probably never forgotten, damned Awesomesauce!) Overall it was a great experience got to meet lots of really cool people both from the drupal community and form #drupaluk. I've seen quite a few blog posts rounding up Drupalcon so figured I might as well write my own but rather than comment on the rather stupid ... wait for it .... here it comes ... queue the DUM DUM DUUUUUUU Sex Scandal I figured I'd talk about the swag. This was my...

You should then be able to sync your iPod by going to File>iPod and clicking synchronise. You don't have to fully synchronise it though check out View>Console to...

My long lasting trials with Linux 27 May 2010

Another year, another release of Ubuntu. Ubuntu has been my choice of fustration ever since version 5 I think, it's been that long ago I can't remember. Every year I've said myself that I'll ditch windows and move to linux. Below is a rough timeline of every single fail I've had with linux. 1. Ubuntu 5 - Wifi card plainly refused to work, my knowledge of linux was low so I gave up after a few hours. 2. Ubuntu 6 - Wifi card refused to work, spent 2 days trying to get it to work. Graphics card was buggy. 3....

A-Z Module Page 15 Apr 2010

So I had an interesting idea while scrolling through the hundreds of modules on our dev site at work. Why not have an A to Z listing on the top of the page which then links to the corresponding section this would would make it a lot easier than scrolling and using find (think of all the dependencies). I'll have a go at making it this weekend for D6 then see what it's like porting it to D7. I'll also submit to drupal.org it might finally get me a CVS account :) On that note I finally installed D7 today,...
