Ultimate Drupal Administration/Control Panel

Blog
Drupal

Perhaps one of Drupal's major cons is the limited number of administration tools. Managing content on any active Drupal site is a very time consuming and frustening job. However it's not a problem because Drupal heavily relies on contributed modules, and solutions are already available and it's only the matter of picking the right ones to make a very powerful Control Panel.

Migrating from Subversion to Bazaar (Including special guide for Sourceforge projects)

Blog

It's about the sixth years since my first commit using Subversion, Moving from CVS to Subversion was really amazing, Subversion was superior in many ways and it served me well. But the age of centralized version control systems is over, we need much more powerful VCSs to deal with huge projects. Now days we should to be able to work with anyone, on anything, anywhere , at anytime, and also keep track of all this activities.

As part of my research project (Comparing Popular Version Control Systems) i decided to start with Bazaar and migrate one of my Subversion Sourceforge projects to this new VCS in order to have a better understanding of how it actually works. And also test the migration utilities because if you can't migrate your code's history then that would be a huge problem.

The Story of Civilization , an amazingly interesting and well written history book

Blog

I've been thinking about reading this book for several month and finallymade up my mind and decided to give it a try. But why? in my opinion for having a better understand of human bings, and also having a better vision for predicting the future and making the right decision in critical events, it's important to have a good understanding of ourselfves. And it's only possible through history. Some may say that history is all lies. That's true becaus history is usually written by the winners! but there is something which makes this lies specially the ancient ones obsoulue.

I think it's a perfect time and perhaps the last change to start planning for safely upgrading our good old Drupal 5 websites to Drupal 6 (If any remained), Drupal 5 will be deprecated as soon  Drupal 7 final comes out. Some module maintainers already removed Drupal 5 releases from their projects which is a trouble for website running Drupal 5.

Linux Shell Bridge (Passing variables from scripting langauges like PHP to Linux Shell)

Blog
Linux
PHP
Programming
Sys Administration

It might sound strange at first but i must say that it's very useful specially if you have shell scripts as part of your application. Usually For making this scripts as automated as possible there should be a way to reuse the application's configurations (ips, passwords , etc) and not having to update a separate configuration file whenever anything changes in the application. It's not limited only to this and can be used to pass any kind of variables.
