How to make a blinkenlight!

I recognize that St. Patrick’s Day, the day of gluttonous boozahol-ing, is perhaps the wrong day to announce this, but I would like to make a proclamation to my friends: STOP HAVING SEX. I know it’s fun and all, but Tenzing wants you to know that he can no longer churn out the baby quilts fast enough to keep up with my rapidly-multiplying set of friends, because you know what it’s driven us to do? Yep: take a longarm quilting class.

Today's Drupal story: Do as we say, not as we do

I think every Drupal admin’s had this day at least once … okay, twice … fine!  Five or six times.  Name changed to protect today’s lucky survivor:

Tooting our own horn in the key of C

There are several simple signs that the crud has successfully knocked me on my ass, but the biggest sign of all is that I have been home since Friday night (and as of this writing it is now Tuesday afternoon) and though I have been on the couch most of that time, have I posted here?  No.  I’m just now feeling capable of stringing sentences together with some hope of achieving subject-verb agreement, and if I get wordy, even that’s gonna get a bit dicey.

Here’s the problem:  technically, I shouldn’t post pictures.  Why?  It’s intended for someone whom I know reads this site.

Why my co-workers think I'm 'special'

Ever have a moment where you read over what you’ve just written and realize why your co-workers think you’re a little touched in the head?  I just did:

This coder is new to me.  This means I can’t vouch for his development style.  I have no idea if he uploads barely-finished dev versions expecting the userbase to do major crash-testing, or if he is cautious and only makes code available right before a stable release, expecting only minor tweaks from the userbase.  3.x could be barely usable or it could be almost finished.  Dunno.

Definition: check-ninja

I’m not sure if I came up with this word, or if one of my friends did, but we have universally adopted it and I think we need to share it with others. I show no results for it on Google, which makes it very likely that one of us really did make it up, but I don’t know who gets the credit or blame.
