Snow!

14 February 2010

Yes, we got over 5" of snow here in Augusta, GA. The first real snowfall since 2002, and the only snow we (and the dogs) have seen since we moved. Photo highlights below!

DrupalCamp Atlanta

21 September 2009

Alright, so the first (annual?) DrupalCamp Atlanta is over and done. A success all around, and most (if not all) of the credit goes to the Atlanta Drupal Users Group and especially Dave Terry and the team at Mediacurrent. Great venue, free food and some surprise guests from out of town.

Paris, Drupal and the Drupalgängers

25 August 2009

My wife Amy and I are sitting in the Charlotte, NC, airport, waiting for our plane to Paris and DrupalCON 2009. This will be the third year we've gone to DrupalCON Europe, and after great trips to Barcelona and Szeged/Budapest, we're very excited about Paris. And my wife is probably more excited than I am.

BBEdit 9: Customer service and developer love

9 September 2008

There is an ongoing debate (in my office at least) about the value of BBEdit instead of a true IDE. I tried Zend, but could never make it show invisibles or line breaks, which drove me crazy.
