Went to see Frank Gehry

[img_assist|nid=541|title=|desc=|link=none|align=center|width=487|height=420]

So I saw the following posting:

SCAD Style, the Savannah College of Art and Design's signature style and design event, will present a lecture by renowned architect Frank Gehry April 28, 7:30 p.m., at the Trustees Theater, 216 E. Broughton St. The event is free and open to the public. SCAD Style is being held April 10-May 17.

So I thought to myself, "Hey, self, that sounds interesting. He was on the Simpsons, after all. He can't be that bad."

Busy busy bee!

And stuff.

Great Slashdot quote

"You have to understand what a Liberal Arts major is. For a very select few people, it's a stepping stone to being a professor, or research, or something else at the top of the field. For the vast majority however, a liberal arts degree is an opportunity to do some partying, find a mate, and prove that you're able to show up on time. So yeah, you can get a 4.0 liberal arts degree much easier than you can get an engineering degree, but you won't be able to be an engineer with one!"

My first real contribution to open source

So I finally gave something back. Granted, in proportion to how I've benefitted from open source software over the years, it's not much. But it's (marginally) better than nothing, right?

I released a Drupal module I call Commentify, which is one of several modules I wrote (or thought up/architected) to integrate Drupal with the proprietary CMS we use at work.

High productivity

Have I mentioned that I loves me some Drupal?

Oh yes. I probably have. Anyway, in the last 48 hours of last week I managed to take two sites from photoshop mockup to fully functioning. Well, almost, anyway. There are of course some minor issues with Internet Exploder to deal with, and some pages to be tweaked.

Happy (real) St. Patrick's Day

I was going to title my St. Patrick's Day post "This town is covered in sh-t", because, in fact, it is. Human, animal, you name it. People can't clean up after themselves after a night of bingeing, let alone their dogs. I don't think the sidewalks of The Hostess City portray a good image to our visitors. Nobody should see what I have seen. I'll leave it at that.

Instead of that nastiness, I bring you Beaker, the Swedish Chef and Animal's rendition of "Danny Boy". Enjoy.

Don't repeat yourself

I'm in Boston at Drupalcon 2008, in a discussion of working together and not reinventing the wheel, where the participants are from competing development shops.

They're looking for ways they can work together, to avoid duplication of effort, and reduce their overall costs.

I find it amusing (and sad) that the company I work for (on the corporate level) has the same problem, but doesn't seem to be working toward solving it.

Must feed the beast

Ok, you can start up with the "Chris changes cars more often than he changes his underwear" jokes (not true, by the way, but close).

Yeah, I have yet another new car. This time a shiny new Subaru Impreza WRX STI. That's a long ass name for a hatchback with 305 hp, all-wheel-drive and big ass fender flares.
