Many Thought it would Never Happen

Pigs flew and Hell Froze Over. The Fat Lady not only sang, she leapt out of her office chair, partied till dawn, and lost her voice screeching like a madwoman somewhere on the Internet while surfing the night away.
After close to a year, I finally updated my site and hopefully begining a new ‘era’ of more frequent postings. Sure, many of you have laughed at me in the past, mocking my every mention of my work on the site. Well, I’m on a roll now; just a few weeks ago, I finally cleared out our garage after a couple of years of it being a huge mess of a storage area. The garage was something I wanted to get done for a long time, and now, I’m ready to apply that same level of dedication to this website.
Laugh if you wish; hopefully, I will have the last laugh.

‘Theme’ issue resolved

As you can now attest, the site theme issue has been resolved. I really like the look and feel of the site now, so it looks like I’ll be sticking with it. Just a few tweaks here and there…

Have I mentioned that Drupal ( ) really rocks?

Issues with my current website ‘theme’…

I run the latest and greatest CVS version of Drupal under the hood of this site. Looks like the latest changes to the core changed the way a couple of functions I use in my new theme work. Until I can get the code rewritten, this is how the site will look. Not great, but usable I guess…

Added a Photo Gallery

I added a photo gallery to the site, as well as the option to post stories/entries with an image attached. Great for when I take a picture with my phone and just have to show it off to everyone 🙂

My site logo is crap

Last night, I stayed up late to whip up a new site logo just to use as a placeholder. This morning, I wake up, check the site and see that I can’t even get my colors straight… I’m begining to really hate that logo. I love the whole ‘house’ theme, but I’m seriously considering dumping that little house image unless I can come up with something more creative. Anyone out there have any ideas?


Yes, I finally updated my site…

I finally got tired of getting ridiculed by Scott and Matt and took the time to get a few things straightened out in order to get the new site out.

I’ve moved away from using Postnuke, which was becoming more of a burden each time I wanted to do something with the site. It was also heavy and full of bugs that drove me nuts. I’m now using Drupal as the core CMS for the site. It’s MUCH easier to play with the code, the look and feel, etc. Also, I have been dealing with a couple of members of the development team and find this Open Source package an refreshing change from other cores I looked at.

I still have work to do, but what you see here is probably 75% of what the site will actually end up looking like. Let me know if you have any ideas and/or issues.
