An Open Source Content Management System (CMS)
A while ago, I wrote about the lack of printed Drupal books, how it affects developers in countries with limited internet connectivity, and how I even entertained the idea of writing one myself.
As I noted before, Ubuntu.com is now running Drupal.Today, Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn has been released, and the number of visitors to the site must have skyrocketed. Either the site went into throttle mode, and hence no blocks are visible, or Canonical have replaced the front page with a plain HTML page.
While viewing CVS messages on Drupal's web site, I noticed that my name is up there.This is the first time I noticed my name being on the list. I am not sure if this means "badge of honor" or "addiction and obsession".
Drupal has a module called watchdog that logs all messages to a database table. The module is currently mandatory, and hence writing to the table cannot be easily removed without hacking core. This can be a problem on sites with heavy traffic where the database is loaded with more logging unecessarily.
The 2007 OSCMS Summit has started today and goes on till tomorrow, with a followup adjunct event on Saturday. I had planned to attend, but due to illness, I had to cancel my plans. Even the ticket is non-refundable. Enjoy everyone, and looking forward to material from the conference.
ubuntu.com has switched to Drupal.Very nice and visually appealing design.This is also on digg, although Drupal is not mentioned, and I posted it on Drupal.org's forum. My favorite Linux distro is using my favorite CMS.

From yet another case of life imitating humor, there is this article on how Caucho's Quercas PHP implementation in Java was used to run Drupal.Another post by Dave Herron on Resin's PHP support, and using Drupal as a test for that. What is scary is that this is indeed a case of life imitating humor.
A while back, I wrote about ChangeEverything.ca, which aims to rally together people who want to change themselves, their community and the world.
The site uses Drupal 4.7, and some custom modules that I wrote for the good folks at SocialSignal. Two modules, favorite nodes, and SpreadFireFox affiliates, got released to the community.Now, the site has shown that it can be a good force for change in practice, not just people writing blogs.
Congratulations Gurpartap Singh: you posted node #100,000 on Drupal.org dated November 27, 2006 13:14 (Central European Time).Dries' second law states that "with every version of Drupal, the number of nodes on drupal.org doubles. Post #50,000 was on February 18, 2006, before 4.7 was released (May 1, 2006). Version 5.0 is not out yet (Hi Karoly!).So, when will we reach 200,000?
OnStep is a full featured telescope controller. A low cost controller based on the STM32 Blue Pill was created by myself. You can order kits for building your own, as well as a Smart Hand Controller.
