First post!

Some of you may have noticed I've not been using Drupal for my personal website. Some of those have been pestering me about it for over three years. Worse. Some have gone as far as making bets as when I would convert my personal website to Drupal. Well, it took me over five years, but finally, I'm using Drupal for my personal website.

I've also decided to start blogging. I hope this website can be a platform for some of my thoughts and that it can give me an outlet to write about Drupal, and anything else I'm passionate about. Besides, I've been lurking around in the blog community for far too long ...

So if you find yourself reading this, welcome to my new Drupal-powered blog.

Note that effort is being put in creating a better website design, and that the functionality will be tweaked and extended along the way. I do not intend to enable user registrations at this point, but you can leave a comment without having to register.

Congrats and thanks for Drupal. Must ask what are you using for the photo albums part? This is not image.module right?

I'm using my own home-brewed album module. I might make it available at some point.

I couldnt work out how you were doing it. The Photo Album and Image Galery didnt give me any output like that.

Wow, there you go! Dude, I think I just won like 20 bucks or something - I'll have to check if the bet expired yet. ;-)

Anyways! Congrats on the conversion. ;-)

I didn't think this day would ever happen! One of those eternal ironies ...

Did you find it difficult to install? ;)

Now if you could only get my sweet big brother to use this site and now and then post some pictures of his oldtimer project... would be nice.

Maybe the boat pictures can be posted here too, would be realy cool.

Steven (my uncle), pictures of the boat building project are still available at Home » Photos » Boat building. I'll add pictures of the car building project as soon I have some.

Great! I look forward to getting a chance to hear some of your thoughts. Your new site has already turned me on to a new book via your wishlist. Cheers!

Thanks to the "Drupal team" for a great product. Thanks to Dries for his insight and time!

And thanks to Westgate and VanDyke for proselytizing their Drupal-ish ideas at Iowa State. I predict this stuff is going to revolutionize cooperative research, education and extension in the United States.
