My six months with Mollom

Published on Tue, 2008-09-23 - 09:09

As many Drupallers know, Mollom has been out for a while now, six months in fact, and I just wanted to share my enthusiasm about it.

I had the pleasure of speaking a bit with Dries about it in the shuttle bus back from Szeged, and it seems that Mollom's future is truly exciting.

Before Mollom, I've been using spam.module and Akismet with varying degrees of success, and when Mollom first came out, I wondered why we needed another Akismet, but decided to try it out to support Dries.


Thank you, DrupalCon

So, DrupalCon is now over. I'm sitting here in the shuttle bus to Budapest with Dries, Webchick, Addison Berry, Tiburon and Drew. It's been an exciting week for me, so many new friends and so much new knowledge.

Of all the 503 participants, there were only a precious few I had met in real life before, so it was all a bit daunting, but now I'm really glad I went.


When Free is actually limiting

Is no big surprise that the Free Software Foundation doesn't like the way things are going with Apple and its iPhone. There is no doubt that the App Store is a great blow to the free software movement. It is currently impossible to distribute GPL-licensed software through it, without violating the GPL's restrictions.

Given that the App Store is the only way for most consumers to get software on their new, shiny devices, the free software guys stand in a position where their license is actually a barrier to adoption.

New server (again)

As you might have read earlier on this blog, I've been self-hosting this website along with a lot of friends and clients on a rented server at EasySpeedy. I have done this for about 18 months, and it's been fun to have my very own webserver with 2 GiB RAM and the works, but as I've come to realise, this is a huge waste of money and resources.

We still don't know what we're doing...

Drupal's popularity has really taken off on these parts – the last year has seen amazing growth, from a few hobbyists people meeting in Copenhagen now and then to large and respectable organisations deploying Drupal in really ambitious projects.

One of the things I have noticed as a result of the change, is how many that do not understand the why's and the how's of Drupal's development.

It has become all the rage for geek bloggers to post a list of the most used commands on their command lines, but since I found my own results interesting, I will post them here nevertheless.

First, our company development server at work where I spend a lot of time messing around with CVS... sigh

A Git mirror for Drupal CVS

Published on Tue, 2008-02-19 - 13:01

For some weeks, I have on-and-off been trying to create my own mirror of in Git, and now it seems I've finally succeeded.

I have set it up with Gitweb and everything, and it seems to have complete fidelity with regards to the original data. It has all the branches/heads and tags that Drupal has, meaning that you can use checkouts from this reppository to keep your Drupal installations up-to-date.
