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. The base price would be say $1000 to kick start the development process. Kickstarter allows you to have up to 3 rewards (I think it's 3) you could use this to tie in potential users and customers. Here's an example scenario: Reward 1 - (Quantity 4) - $25 - You get 1 feature of your choice addedReward 2 - (Quantity 4) - $50 - You get the module installed and implemented on your siteReward 3...

Retiring the drupal.org forum. 06 Feb 2011

Note: Due to popular demand I'm publishing this early, there will be future revisions. There's a post on the drupal.org mailing list which caught my attention - http://bit.ly/g56sOj There has been some chatter on Twitter concerning the future of the forums on drupal.org. I don't want to relight any code wars on keeping it in house or using external solutions but...... Here is a well supported stackexchange proposal to provide Drupal answers. I think this would be an ideal replacement for the Drupal.org forums. http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/2978/drupal-answers Please offer your support and commitment to the stackexchange site so we can help new users...

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...

Module Goto 06 Nov 2010

Module Goto is a small module that extends the great Root Candy theme for Drupal, it provides simple menu that appears on the right hand side of the module page which allows you to click and navigate between the different field sets. This is immensely helpful when you have hundreds of modules available in a multisite configuration. The process is pretty simple, it loops through all the fieldsets on the module list page and creates links to them, it uses the jQuery plugin scrollTo to do the physical movement. I've uploaded the project to github and can be found at: https://github.com/digital006/modulegoto Feel...
