Drupal Day 1

So, this is what Day 1 is like. I have a nice theme that I got off the main Drupal site. As you can see its sleep and colorful but not overwhelming. Aside from messing with the general configuration of Drupal, there is a lot more you need to do to make it even remotely functional/organized. Lets take categories for instance. At first I didn’t know exactly how these worked. However after some playing around, and further posting. I was able to separate my blog entries and the HOWTO’s. I just create a new Category for each, and then provide terms to place them under which is a great feature.

After playing around with Drupal, I decided to try and find a howto/article module. I searched and found one, its just called ‘article’. It doesn’t look to be user contributed, but rather from a developer. Possibly a core developer? Who knows, but it is also working great. You can access it on the side menu, or click http://geektank.net/article

As you can see I haven’t actually wrote an article. However that will soon change. For now I like Drupal, its easy to post and it looks good. The template may need to change or I might just have to put more content in it, as of now its a blank piece of paper with a nice border.

LG to supply TV converters for US government program

Very interesting, no more analog TV channles. I wonder if Canada will follow suit.
LG to supply TV converters for US government program - For some, February 17, 2009 is going to be a frustrating day, as it marks the end of the line for American analog television broadcasts. Those with old-school wood-paneled TVs are going to either need to go out and buy a new set or purchase a converter box to be able to view the new digital channels. If I wasn’t already gadget-obsessed, I’d be mad as hell if someone forced me to upgrade my TV and I’d be even more furious once I found out how much it was going to cost me. Luckily, your trusty National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)has a solution.

Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors

I remember the first Celerons or 'Cellys' back in the day. Cheap and relatively good for someone who can only work on one task at a time. Not for an uber geek or insane multi-tasker as you would be able to tell whether or not you were using a Celeron by just sitting down and using the PC for 15 minutes. Either way, an affordable alternative to the current Intel Core Duos.
Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors - Multi-core chips are sweeping the processor market and single cores are becoming harder and harder to find. This trend is about to go through the roof while prices plummet to the basement.
