Huh? What just happened there??

Wow! Big change .. really big change! I hope you like it.

I have spent the past few days learning the ins and outs of Drupal and all that goes with it. It's quite a system and very powerful. And I have had a great time so far. It's a lot of work, though and not for the faint of heart.

The theme I'm using is a subtheme of Zen. I tried out a few others, especially Omega, but setlled on Zen. It definitely needs some more customization but everything I've done so far has been in CSS (actually SASS which makes it much more manageable.

We have achieved SSL

I added SSL to the site this morning. The folks at StartSSL have a Level 1 certificate for free which is all I really want or need right now.

Setup was a bit tedious but not difficult. I strongly suggest that you keep notes during the process as there are several files, a few passcodes to remember, and several steps.

Version control with Git - Videos

I've been using the version control system Git for my little local projects. I had been using CVS and rcs before that. CVS is, as I understand it, just a convenience wrapper for rcs with some networking thrown in. I do know that CVS is much nicer than rcs but it's still not wonderful.

Then I tried SVN (Subversion) and worked with that for a while. Maybe there is a pattern here ...

Battleship Cove, Fall River, MA

We went to Battleship Cove on Saturday. I took a few pictures. Jonah and I went on board the ships, Karen decided to sit on a bench and watch.  have to say that it's pretty strenuous climbing up and down all those ladders. I hadn't been in quite a few years and I guess I'm not nearly as limber as I used to be. The submarine, especially, was harder. I think they made the doors smaller or something! ;-)

Mark Twain House, Hartford, CT

We visited the Mark Twain House in Hartford, CT. There are two tours available, one of the main house itself and the other of the servants' quarters. We did both and they were very interesting. Unfortunately they did not allow any photographs inside the house but I did get a couple of a life-size sculpture of Sam Clemens done entirely in Lego.

Both pictures that I've posted are in this page.
