Another Personal Update on the Ongoing War Against Entropy

Submitted by C B Wright on

Good news! I no longer have to drive 176 miles round-trip when I commute. Last weekend I moved into our new apartment in glorious Phenix City, Alabama, just 13 minutes away from where I work in Columbus, Georgia.

Bad news! We're not quite moved in yet. I'm essentially camping out in the apartment because none of our big furniture (including things like, oh, beds) are there yet. It's still better than driving 176 miles a day.

Good news! This weekend we're renting a U-Haul and moving all the big furniture!

The Eviscerati.Org/Drupal 7 Changelog

Submitted by C B Wright on

People are noticing that the change from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 brought with it a few changes in the way the site works… and that some of the changes are more accurately described as “regressions,” since in some cases the site has lost functionality that it used to have. This post is an attempt to list as many of the changes that I can think of so you’ll know what is different.

The Return of the Forums

Submitted by C B Wright on

On the theory that it's not always convenient to have to find an old post to comment on it, and on the (further) theory that some old posts with locked comments are still worth discussing, and on the (yet one more) theory that there are times when you'll want to start a topic that has something to do with something on this site without waiting for me to create a post on it myself, I have, once again, set up forums on this site.

Welcome back! One issue of note.

We're running Drupal 7 now, and I think everything is mostly working, with one caveat.

If you are running Firefox or Chrome with the Firebug plugin, you may trigger an infinite javascript loop whenever you encounter the podcasting widget. Choosing the "Clear Activation List" function in the Firebug menu appears to alleviate the problem until the browser restarts. I don't have a good solution for this at the moment. If you have a good solution, suggestion, or can simply provide more information about the javascript error, please post here or drop me a line via the Contact form.
