  1. Setting up my first # 8 site. Exciting!

  2. @strypey I spent a decade trying to persuade people that they don't need a brochureware site. When I lost the argument I still used # for the #, responsive base themes, APIs that prevent me making elementary security blunders, etc.

  3. @strypey # UUID module was intended as a fix for D2D migration purposes. Not sure of its current status. (Recovering web developer. It has been 3 years since my last web site. One day at a time.)

  4. @strypey In # URL path aliases (if used) are like a file name. A node ID is like referencing a file by hard disk block/sector. No good if you migrate your file to another drive, or your site to another CMS or non-trivial # upgrade.

  6. @strypey I went to every # # [mini-]con from 2008 to 2014. It went from being literally 1 female present in 2008 to easily a third in 2014. Anybody who seriously (outside of fantasy roleplay) believed in the inferiority of women wouldn't be in the # community.

  7. @strypey This seems an example of what Cory Doctorow would call autoimmune dysfunction ("It's something to do with sex! Panic stations!"). Larry is a cornerstone of the # community. Even if all involved eventually conclude it was a mistake, there's no walking this back.

  8. @bsmall2 I've not tried # I couldn't see anything indispensable about what # does that # with a generous char limit can't do. As a former # zealot, these (federated) services should all be readily duplicated by Drupal install profiles as well.

  9. @strypey I dunno. I set up a # account a couple of years ago to check out # integration and just thought "Is this it? Is this what all the fuss is about?" The vanity value of feeling important enough to be surveilled appears the killer feature.

  10. @panda Meant to ask you this morning: do you have a preferred # comment spam solution at the moment?

  11. @kat Yeah, I've just offloaded the last of my gratis # sites to some keen young people, and it's so long neglected it's not worth upgrading. These days I'd use wget. Actually, who am I kidding, I'd rely on Bless Brewster Kahle, curator of the planet Earth.

  12. #! Tried adding a new page display to an existing # view. The things I've completely forgotten in a couple of years!

  13. @zoowar What I really would have liked is to develop an # module for #, so I can microblog from my blog. Maybe one day, but I'm a full-time unpaid freelance academic at the moment.

  14. Wow. Setting up a little # site for the first time in over year. I have forgotten much.

  15. #! I never thought I'd live to see the day. # 8 to be released today (Western hemisphere time).

  16. Upside of glacial # major version release cycle: The version of Drupal in # stable is the current one.

  17. @tregeagle Cool. I was going to do something similar with # Feeds and QueryPath. But I'm always going to do things.

  18. Of course I do lose # on my # sites. Though, come to think of it, I hate WYSIWYG, don't I?

  20. Also the Great # Stagnation was due more to crappy shared hosting providers failure to upgrade than lack of competition. # was quicker to drop legacy PHP4 support than #, IIRC.
