Real Live Preacher Maintenance Gig

I have just been asked by Gordon from Real Live Preacher to handle all the technical maintenance and management of his website. Seeing as his site is getting over 3000 unique hits a day that's a responsible job! I have been talking this possibility over with him for several weeks now and am very pleased he has come to us. We plan to do an excellent job - of course. Hi Gordon :)

rlp will announce the news officially on his site tomorrow, though he gave a teaser today.

The funniest thing was that within hours of his emailing me (while I was asleep) the site broke, so my first email of the day was his acceptance and 2 emails up was his cry for help! With the help of my techie Rohan, we solved that one quick smart and are now planning the major job of upgrading his site to the most recent version of drupal.

Challenge for the day

I have just picked up the management of a fairly high profile drupal blog, and its broke!

Challenge = do everything else I was supposed to do today and fix that! At least I have a good techie to help.

Drupal 6.3 Beta announced - not long now to Drupal 6 release

Last week Drupal 6.3 Beta was announced along with the statement that Drupal Version 6 would be released in a week or so. Look for an announcement later this week or next week.
I haven't bothered testing the betas but as soon as version 65 is released for real I will get a copy isntalled on a test dserver for a play. There are some particularly nice features in this new release. Heres a list:
The new Drupal 6 experience starts with the installer, which has been
drastically improved. It now guides you through the initial setup
steps, so starting a new Drupal site is significantly easier.
Configuration parameters that used to be all over the place are now
prompted for during the install so there are fewer steps necessary to
get the site configured.

What do I do?

I am always being asked what do I do?

It's complicated.

You can read about some of it on our company website where I explain our Drupal Development and hosting
