Happy sixth birthday Drupal
Today, six years ago, Drupal 1.0.0 was released! The following snippet is taken directly from the original announcement:
Today, drop.org announces the release of drupal 1.00 after an extensive period of testing. Drupal is a full-featured content management/discussion engine using Apache/PHP/MySQL and suitable to setup a news-driven community or portal site similar to kuro5hin.org and slashdot.org. Current features include discussion forums, web-based administration, theme support, an open submission queue, content management, a modularized design, PHP sessions, user management with access control and username/profanity/hostname filters, error logging, a public diary module, an affiliate site module, backend/headline generation (RSS/RDF) and much more.
To celebrate the event, Karlijn and I made you some cookies:
Step 1: buy the tools and the ingredients to make the cookies of your choice. Could be peanut butter cookies, oatmeal cookies or sugar cookies as long there is room for custom frosting.
Step 2: unpack the ingredients.
Step 3: mix all the ingredients as you would normally do.
Step 5: bend a metal ring so it takes the shape of Druplicon (the Drupal logo).
Step 6: cut Druplicons in dough using our Druplicon cookie cutter.
Step 7: take out the Druplicon shaped dough.
Step 8: put the Druplicon dough in the oven. That's my "DrupalCon Brussels" t-shirt reflecting in the oven's cover glass.
Step 9: take the cookies out of the oven.
Step 10: mix the frosting with blue food coloring.
Step 11: dip the cookies into the frosting.
Step 12: dip the cookies in the frosting.
Step 13: that's it! Happy birthday Drupal!
