GlennjiDotCom

I relaunched glennji.com last night, which with Drupal was as easy as changing a setting from “offline” to “online”. Today I’ve tweaked the theme (with the theme_editor module, since I don’t have FTP access from work) to rectify a couple of XHTML validation errors and warnings — and I wouldn’t have noticed them but for the HTML Validator extension in Firefox. There’s still a few funny things about the theme and stylesheet, but I think they’re mostly only in the admin area and thus not visible from the outside. Once I iron it all out I’ll donate the theme to drupal.org I think.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve also launched a new site: glennji.org! This is my purely personal, ego-driven site for rants and rambles, ridiculous ideas and any scribbles I happen to get around to scanning. Unlikely to be interesting to anybody who doesn’t know me, I’m guessing.

It’s another Drupal site, running a separate instance in an “add-on” domain on the same webserver, mostly because I couldn’t figure out who to host multiple websites on the same space any other way (i.e. it probably involves updating DNS records, for one thing, and I don’t have shell access to the webserver to configure Apache for another).

Of course, writing some decent content/applications/themes to host is by far the more difficult task. It’s also more fun!

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
