Converted to Drupal 6

I've converted this site to Drupal 6 (precisely 6.2) and ohmygosh did this take a lot of work to do the conversion, but at the same time it's so worthwhile to do.

Doctor Who: Turn Left (S04E11)

Another tour de force of time travel stories on Doctor Who. This episode asks the question: How would your life be different if your decisions were different?

Clearly where we end up in life is directly determined by the decisions we make along the way. It's also determined by what goes on around us, the decisions everybody else makes, and for that matter the context we all live in on this planet in this star system in this galaxy etc. But, really, what path would life take if there were a different set of decisions?

Battlestar Galactica: Revelations (S04E10)

Woah. Ohmygosh. This episode is essentially a season finale since season 4 is being split into two parts. And wow what an ending, and it will give us plenty of time to think about many things before season 4.5 airs. The episodes events are so intricate and excellent story telling that I'm just going to go step by step and analyze each piece.

Doctor Who: Silence in the Library, and Forest of the Dead

Oooooo! This is why Doctor Who stories should be spread over multiple episodes. So many of the Doctor Who episodes since the revival have been one-episode wonders where the story was rushed .. and a rushed story is often one not told as well. Even some of the two-parters since the revival have been too rushed. In any case these two stories are very well paced, extremely interesting, and excellent feats of story telling. That they were written by Stephen Moffett, the next lead writer, portends good things for the future of Doctor Who.

Battlestar Galactica: Sine Qua Non (S04E08)

As I said a couple postings back, I don't watch TV, I don't own a TV, and never you mind how it is I'm able to watch Battlestar Galactica. BG is the other exception I'm making to "no TV" .. besides Doctor Who. Sine Qua Non is otherwise known as S04E08 .. It strikes me as the weakest episode of this season while at the same time this episode is a critical turning point in the story.

"I hope we're worth it"

I was recently watching episodes of Torchwood (second season), a spinoff TV series from the rebirthed Doctor Who series. There was an interesting thought in one episode ..

Keyword research tools to help you optimize your page ranking

Fun or useful doodads

The Drupal community has developed or incorporated many useful gadgets (doodads) that supposedly improve the user experience.

WebSnapr Preview Bubble and Snap Preview Anywhere both extend links to external websites to have a popup window that shows a preview of the page being linked. This should help with letting your visitors know that it's an external link, and what's on that destination. These add to page download times, however.
