Call for PostgreSQL developers for drupal 6

For those that don't read the development list; there has been considerable discussion recently (following Khaled's PG vs MySQL benchmarks) about improving PG support in drupal 6.

I haven't followed the whole discussion in detail (so please correct my if I'm wrong or have missed something), but it seems that for PG support to be sustained and/or improve in drupal6, more PG testers and developers with an interest in PG support are needed., online accounting, done right

Xero is another accounting application that competes with the likes of Quicken and MYOB. It isn't the first application-as-a-service in this market, but it is, IMO the best.

There are several efforts around to collect links and summaries of drupal sites. This is by far the most comprehensive I've seen so far. Sites are categorized by region and other useful terms;

Leopard isn't the new Vista (Firehose on PCmag)

Oliver Rist 'reviewed' Mac OS X Leopard and his article was slashdotted.


I'm writing this on my second MacBook Pro, in our house we also have MacBook white (My fiancee's), an iPod Shuffle, an Airport Extreme base station and an Airport Express with Airtunes. Although I wouldn't agree with you, it wouldn't surprise me if you took me for a JAFAF (Just Another Fucking Apple Fanboy). However I make an effort to keep a realistic view on Apple's products and if I felt that an open source operating system could enhance my workflow as much (or nearly as much) as Mac OS X, I would switch, but currently there isn't. I work on FLOSS all day every day -- that's my job, as a web and drupal developer and consultant.


Oliver is clearly having a bitch in this article, and no doubt intentionally to aggravate JAFAFs and motivate discussion responses and click-throughs on the ads. Hence I won't give him or PC mag the pleasure of a long detailed approach, but merely attempt sieve out the parts inspired by T.O.M., and add my own $0.2; a realistic count of my Leopard experience to date.

I wanna go back to school

Google will pay high school kids aged 13 to 18 up to $500 for their participation in GHOP. The first round is a bit of a trial and has only ten projects involved, and Drupal is one of them! The others are;

  • Apache Software Foundation
  • Joomla!
  • MoinMoin
  • Mono
  • Moodle
  • Plone
  • Python
  • SilverStripe

It is both impressive and interesting how many of them are web-content tools (CMS, web-application frameworks, wikis etc). I also need to congratulate SilverStripe, a locally-grown-and-nutured CMS. Kudos to the Wellington whanau.
