Drupal has a way of making an otherwise intelligent person feel like a complete bumbling idiot. The CSS functions in Drupal 5 are no exception. I became excited when I read the notes on Ted Serbinski's Blog relating to theming in Drupal 5 and the related information contained at Converting 4.7x themes to 5.x .
I made the commitment and moved back to Colorado. After a week long ordeal of packing and driving I made it up here. Any doubts I had about coming back immediately disapeared as I left Kansas and entered Colorado. Kansas is a horid place and each time I drive through it my dislike for it increases. The wind was sufficient to cut my gas mileage almost in half and the exhaustion from trying to stay on the road was intense. Have been able to visit a few of my old friends and everybody is doing great out here. Spent the day snowboarding at Keystone yesterday and am beginning the job se
My name is Kevin Bridges and I am an Information Architect. I have actively been developing on the Internet since 1994 and have an extensive resume that can be downloaded from this apage (you need to create an account on this site to download). At present, I am actively pursuing additional contracts or employment opportunities near Denver, Colorado.
I specialize in providing high performance security focused Content Management Systems that provide you a flexible base to build your web presence on.
The United States of America is a country founded on the highest moral principles. Foremost among these principles are the equality of all men, and the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In fact, the founders of this great country placed such a high value on individual freedom, that the very first amendment to the Constitution of the United States is the amendment guaranteeing these individual liberties (Roark A-13). The Fourth Amendment expands upon the liberties set forth in the First Amendment by stating that the government cannot search or seize any person without probable cause (A-13). Throughout American history, however, there have been certain instances in which the American Government has suppressed these individual liberties in direct violation of the First and Fourth Amendments. By analyzing these instances, it becomes apparent that not only does limiting personal liberties hamper beneficial change within the government, but promoting individual liberties including free speech, even if that speech is derogatory in nature, actually strengthens the foundation of the government.
I needed Ubuntu Linux, Nvidia and Wine to be able to fully leave Microsoft Windows and still play World Of Warcraft. I have a bit more than an average setup with 2 GeoForce 7800GTX SLI cards on an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe powered by a an AMD 64FX processor. I've been playing with different builds of Linux and various methods to get everything working, but nothing has impressed me or been easy until today. Here's an outline of every step taken to install Linux and start playing World of Warcraft. You can direct question to Slammer on the Undermine server ;-)
If for some reason your dreads weren’t put in correctly to begin with, don’t waste your time waiting to see if by some miracle the dreads will begin to lock and start to look like dreads. They never will. I know from experience, since Kevin's first set of dreads were done by a salon that treated his hair as if it were African American hair. Instead of backcombing, his dreads were twisted, crocheted, and slathered down with goobs of wax. He did everything by the book after the dreads were done (palm rolling, waxing, clockwise rotation, etc.), but at the end of 3 months all he had was a head full of stringy, waxy, ratty looking hair. Some of the dreads had lumps in them as if they were thinking about locking. Others had long pointed tips that looked ridiculous.
In the article Serve or Fail, Mr. Eggers uses broad generalizations based on his experience as the basis of an argument to support a mandated “service requirement” (Eggers) for college students. Undeniably, a work-force of more than “two million volunteer hours a year” (Eggers) could be a blessing to many communities. However, any action forced on another is inherently unethical and against the very freedoms our country was founded on. Forced philanthropy on college students is a narrow solution when compared to the collective potential volunteer force this country has to offer.
I've tried a few times to switch to Linux in the past with different levels of failure. I had to always switch back to Windows for one reason or the other. Most of the time it was because I needed to use Adobe Photoshop or wanted to play a game like World Of Warcraft. At the time, it seemed I would never be able to enjoy Linux as a desktop replacement.
I can finally announce that I, after 13 years as a developer, will never use Microsoft as the basis of a computing environment. I can now perform every task that I used a windows machine for on a Linux machine without a technical nightmare.
I'm evolved hehe. I've undertaken a new venture in my life by not pursuing the professional world and submersing myself in school. I've enrolled at a community college and am now attending full time. My new schedule allows me a decent amount of time to refocus on the application of technology in my life. Now that I'm not focusing on the business needs of a particular organization, I can relax a little and play again.
Before I can play I need to organize a few things and find a groove that is in sync with college. I'm a bit rusty with the demands of a full time educational schedule and am working to adjust. This website is going to be a toolbox of expression and functionality that I can use to further myself. It's my personal version of mySpace that lets me keep my information while sharing with you exactly how I want.
