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.

NASA funded robots to search for life under Arctic ice

NASA funded robots to search for life under Arctic ice -

Filed under:

In a mission that is apparently similar to searching for life under the ice of Jupiter's moon Europa (sans the space travel part), three robots are set to start a mission to explore the underwater hot springs under the ice of the Arctic: because someone else did the Antarctic last year. On a 40 day expedition in July, researchers from Cape Cod hope to use three new robotic vehicles -- two that can operate without cables under ice -- to find life that resides in the hot streams along the techtonic boundary between Eurasia and North America. Although the robots can descend over 3 miles under the water working just meters from the bottom to photograph objects and collect samples, the task of the NASA-funded $450,000 Puma and Jaguar robots will be hindered by the rough terrain and their inability to surface through the ice. Sounds like NASA's got quite a while to go until it can submarine around Europa -- they probably won't be able to surface there at all.
