Contrib update for early September (updated)

Tags: 

So after several months' of work last week I finally got new releases out for the Twitter module. And then this morning released more updates because a few bugs had snook their way in. Sorry about that. I do hope the new versions will keep people content for a while - if you, your client or your employer's site(s) use the module, please consider giving some back (on company/client time!) through helping with the issue queue as there are still a good many feature requests and patches that need some TLC.

Last week also saw a security release for Fieldable Panels Panes. With that out the door the next step for that module is to work through the issue queue and work on plans for the next release.

However, before that happens I do really need to get back to the Panelizer module that has definitely languished from my absence of the past several months. This module is very important to me and I'm ready to fix all the things and get a stable release out. Oh, and to write more tests. A lot more tests. Because tests are the one thing that help avoid the regressions that keep coming up.

PS, I'll be at NERDSummit next Saturday, September 12th, giving a talk on why open source is not just free software - I hope to see you there.

Oh... I almost forgot. This weekend I'll be getting the D8 port of Metatag onto d.o and plotting out my hopes and dreams to take it to v1.0 and beyond - we'll see how that goes.

Three positive things, day fifty five

Tags: 

Hello Monday!

The first positive thing was taking our car in because the TPMS was giving warnings when driving on highways, only for them to say that it looked like it was misfiring from the tires being soft. Fingers crossed.

The second positive thing was doing some more Drupal training with #awesomewife. She's slowly but surely improving the content for her site, and started having our kids help with it.

The third positive thing was putting some detail to my plans for Drupal training, based on what I've been doing with #awesomewife and her friend. I'm going to discuss it with a friend and co-worker tomorrow and hopefully we'll start a local group in the coming weeks.

Three positive things, day fifty

So that was another Wednesday.

The first positive thing was getting to our local monthly Drupal group again. We had a nice turnout today - seven attendees (might have been eight, only I forgot to tell someone).

The second positive thing was Kian picking up two Lego Duplo cows and saying "two cow"! Not "I have cows", specifically "two cows" :-) I thought that was pretty cool.

The third positive thing was... this is the fiftieth post in this series! Woohoo! Lets roll on to 100!

Three positive things, day forty eight

So, how was your Monday?

The first positive thing was.. going to the dentist? He's a really nice guy, he jokes around with the customers & staff, and he fills these holes in my teeth with a plant-based goo that solidifies via UV light. Neat.

The second positive happened when we were having dinner. Kian had some food from his mom's plate but they'd finished everything on her plate. I motioned that I'd get some from the kitchen, my awesomewife asked Kian if he wanted some more potatoes and said.. "Daddy's potatoes?" and he immediately turned around and looked at my plate with this hungry stare - I couldn't do anything but laugh :-)

The third positive thing was doing Drupal training with our friend and my #awesomewife again. Tonight we quietly dipped our toes into content architecture via content tagging.

Three positive things, day forty six

That was a fairly average Saturday.

The first positive thing was receiving an awesome picture from my #awesomewife of the three kids playing at a park, which has become my new desktop picture.

The second positive thing was fixing a bunch more things in a Drupal plugin for interacting with Twitter; I'll be releasing the full update in a day or two.

The third positive thing was getting some ukulele practice time, and showing Kian how to strum :) He wanted to nuts just smacking the strings, but for a little bit I got him to strum gently. Tomorrow (Sunday) I'm going to spend some time with his brothers showing them a few bits that I've learned on it.
