Took the Drupal 7 plunge -- finally -- Looking good

In January 2010 I attended a launch party for Drupal 7, and was real excited at the new features etc. But I started to look into upgrading my sites, and found a bunch of modules had not been ported to Drupal 7 yet. Eleven months ago, eleven months after that launch party, I posted an inventory of module readiness for upgrading my sites to Drupal 7, and still found a number were not ready, though in most cases I was feeling shy of modules marked "beta".

Chrome Apps Office Hours: NodeJS in Chrome packaged apps

Here's an interesting idea to ponder - running Node.js app's inside a web browser.  This video is by two  developer evangelist dudes working on the Chrome web browser as well as ChromeOS, and it shows running Node.js apps in a browser.  The rationale they give is that because Chrome and ChromeOS runs "applications" inside a web browser, it could be useful to use Express (for example) running inside the browser to build such an application.  That means running a web server inside the web browser to run an application inside that same browser.  Head hurt yet?

Getting email validation straightened out for successful email transmissions (DKIM, SPF and PTR, oh my!)

One of the things Drupal does is generate emails for a variety of reasons. For example new account registrations include a step to validate the account, by sending an email containing a validation link. On the large online community website I run, a long-running problem has been that the validation email does not always get delivered. This shows up as a user registration that never gets validated.

Have your own personal cloud storage system with pogoplug

I have a Drobo at home holding a zillion terabytes of disk storage, and noticed on the Drobo website that you can use the Drobo with a Pogoplug.  I've heard of the Pogoplug, a little hardware gizmo that lets you build your own private cloud data storage system.  I thought, cool, I could connect the Drobo to the Pogoplug rather than to the Mac Mini, and access my files from anywhere.  And maybe I could set it up to let my girlfriend or others to store files on the Drobo as well.  So, let's see what it can do.

Could companies who pay bloggers for positive posts be forced to reveal who they're paying?

Do you get paid to blog on given topics? You may be forced to reveal such arrangements. The judge hearing the Google/Oracle case has ordered the two companies to reveal the names of reporters, bloggers and other commentators they have paid. This demand comes following the intellectual property lawsuit between Google and Oracle over Android and whether that operating system infringed on Java.


Method to load a Node.js site using nginx per the gist below. The blog post contains a full walk-through of the configuration. The config proxies the HTTP traffic from the Node processes, directly handles static files so that Express doesn't have to do it, uses the nginx built-in caching, and turns on gzip. All this could be done in Node/Express, but is going to be more efficient to let Nginx do it.
