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 https://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.

Get A Blackberry Curve For $49 Without Hassle -

If you’re in the market for a new phone and the Blackberry Curve has caught your eye, don’t go walking into an AT&T store just yet. Amazon is offering the device for a cheap-as-hell $49 without any rebates whatsoever. Yup, just plug in your credit card, place an order, and you’ve got yourself a Curve for under fifty bucks.

One slight issue. If you break AT&T’s terms of service agreement in 181 days after the purchase, you get hit with a $250 fee from Amazon in addition to the normal fees AT&T will charge you. So tread carefully on this amazing deal.
