'Twas a good day

That was a rather good day.

It's the first day of our vacation. Next week We go to DC for some sightseeing and for me to attend the Drupal GovCon event for a few days. I'll be giving a presentation on one of my favorite topics (open source software) and running a code sprint for the Metatag module (plugin) for Drupal that I maintain.

TIL

Today I learned a few things, which I thought I'd share.

First off, you can dash your child's dreams by saying "ask your mom to come out for breakfast" when he was all psyched about bringing his mom breakfast in bed. So just roll with it.

Rough plan for planning to port a site to Drupal 8

I have a small freelance client whose site I've offered to port to D8 pro-bono as a learning exercise for myself and a friend who's learning Drupal. It'll take a number of months to do, even though architecturally it's a small site, but that's fine. My very first step was to create an initial plan on what steps we'd need to do to to plan the site build. Seeing as this list ended up being completely generic, I figured I'd share it.

Am posting this to Common Sense Media too.

This historical retelling of a very important time in the Civil Rights movement is exceptional in every way - story, acting, pacing, etc.

There are a few portions that parents may wish to be aware of (spoiler warning, but it's historical so that's to be expected):

Review: Gravity Ghost

A highly recommended game that's a one of the most creative and original I've seen. A cross between an interactive story and a Mario Galaxy-style physics puzzler, the game is incredibly fun to play. It's simple & colorful pencil & paper -style graphics work remarkably well for this story, and its music is gorgeous. While the game is short and many will finish it within a few hours of play, it's such an enjoyable experience it should be very replayable.
