• Cleaned gaming library

    During the week before my surgery I decided to reorganize my gaming collection. In our old house I had a gaming room that eventually became a kid's room. After that my collection went onto shelves and some boxes separated throughout the house. So I decided to put everything into one place after many years. 

  • DrupalCamp Florida 2015

    DrupalCamp Florida 2015 will be April 11-12, in Orlando. I have signed up to attend and also talked my employer into being a silver sponsor. I have a great boss who supports the Drupal community.

    I'll be presenting two sessions (if both are approved). One is on implementing caching and reverse proxy on an existing LAMP-based Drupal 7 install. The other is building a very flexible email newsletter system using Rules, Flag and a few other modules.

    EDIT: Unfortunately I have to have some important surgery done and will be missing DCFL this year. Boo!!

    Had a great breakfast thanks to excellent room service. I hung the menu thing on the door handle. Love those things.

    AndoCon 2014 day 1

    The first thing I noticed when entering the hotel was the friendliness of the staff. There were gamers standing there just waiting to direct me to the right place. Also, once I checked in and bought my badge, as soon as I entered the RPG room, there was someone who jumped up to help me get into a game. That was totally awesome.

    And so begins my first post on my new awesome site. Later today, if weather and traffic are good for me, I will be in Atlanta. I'll be attending AndoCon. This is a special occasion for a couple reasons:
