…could it be over?

Officially finished my schooling for this year I am exactly 1 hour ahead of schedule. One delivery trip downtown and I will be ready for a summer composed entirely of listening to fools screwing up basic commands in surveyland.

Appologies for the radio silence lately. The business.

tyndale kidz thumbnailTyndaleKidz.org is one thing I’ve been working on. It’s a groupblog/community where the bloggers are a bunch of kids from a downtown community center me and my class partner were working with. The content isn’t always engrossing but I like to think it has it’s niche market (the audience is supposed to be the community itself).

(Skip this next bit if you have never played Dungeons & Dragons or don’t know what a PHP is.)

The site itself is running on a program called Drupal. A super-powerful but also super-backwards content management system (CMS). It does a lot of the same things a forum or WordPress would do, but with a bunch of extra features added on. The code was a mess though (not even an inkling of standards compliance) and a lot of the templating functions were not only counter-intuitive, but required stupid hacks and stylistic compromises where options and user control would have been easy to implement.
It’s all licensed under the GPL (open-source) though, so I guess we can forgive it a few bugs.
Personally, I think I’m going to stick with WordPress for near-future projects. Especially with the added features in the new version (which I can’t wait to implement now that I’ll have some free time!)

I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine.
