Nick.pro Migrated to Drupal

I have successfully migrated the nick.pro site from the Wordpress blog that it has been for ages, into Drupal. This is perhaps the most unusual migration of this blog (and I've moved this blog several times now), in that I don't actually consider Drupal to be a better blogging software then Wordpress, in fact, I find Wordpress to be the absolute best blogging software available today. However I've long wanted nick.pro to be something more then just a blog, I've wanted it to be a whole site showcasing what I'm up to online and off, and Drupal is a far better CMS platform for a more robust site then just a blog. While Drupal works fine as a blog, where it really shines is in it's flexibility. There are Third Party Modules available to do almost anything you can imagine, and for those things you can't imagine, it's a robust php framework for coding my own modules to do even more incredible things. For the moment, all I've accomplished is migrating my old blog content, making sure all of the URLs redirect correctly, and adding an activity stream to show my recent activity on various online sites (twitter, digg, youtube, and flickr to start, more to come). This is far from the first time I have migrated my blog. Stay tuned after the break for a brief glimpse of how this site has progressed from "Cap's Log" on Movable Type 2, to Nick.pro running on Drupal today. (more…)

Google Developer Day 2007

The Main Stage This thursday I went over to my second Tech Conference since moving to the San Francisco Bay area, the first being MacWorld back in January, this time, I went to the San Jose convention Center for the 2nd annual Google Developer Day. I must say I hope that Google's CEO tells the Apple Board of Directors a thing or two about how to hold a Tech Conference. Google Developer Day 2007 was fantastic fun, and Google made a lot of fantastic announcements just for developers, several of which I'm going to start implementing in my work at Justia. (more…)

521,600 minutes, how do you measure a year

My how time flies. I went to my blog today and noticed, low and behold, that I hadn't updated it in over a year (15 months to be more exact) and a lot certainly has happened in that year. With this new post I have also replaced my old blogging software (I was never quite happy with Blog:CMS) with Wordpress, which I was reluctant to try, but now I find it to be such a good blogging software that I have no idea what I had against it for so long.
