Comparing Node.js modules to an idiom in writing Java classes

On waking up this morning an idea was in my mind of a way to explain Node.js module structure & use by way of an idiom in writing Java classes.  Okay, I see that most JavaScript programmers go "ugh" whenever they think of Java, but it's a language I spent over 10 years living with as a Sun employee in the Java SE team, and it's an eminently useful language for certain realms of work.  And in any case this particular Java class idiom will make an aspect or two of Node.js modules a little more obvious than they are.

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.
