This page has support material for a session I gave at the 2013 Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit (PNWDS).

As it turns out, this session has also been accepted at BADCamp 2013:

Updating to Mac OS X 10.7.5

Submitted by Mile23 on Sat, 09/29/2012 - 10:02

In short: Don't do it.

I've wasted half of yesterday and much of today getting my Late 2008 MacBook Pro back into shape after installing the 10.7.5 update.

Worst of all: My fink installation won't update, which means re-installing XCode and then re-installing the command line tools, which is so slow that I have time to write this.

My MBP booted 10.7.5 once, and then thereafter only gave a kernel panic on boot. I had to re-install 10.7, and then download the 10.7.4 combo update and install that.

What To Delete?

There's been a long-standing issue in the Examples Project, as to whether an implementation of Node API should delete it's content on uninstall.

This is related to other issues about whether modules that implement fields should delete their data from the DB on uninstall. It took a while, but finally Drupal core will prevent you from uninstalling a module that provides a field (or, IIRC, a formatter), so yay, cross that one off the list.

Some Update-Type Stuff

Please forgive me, anyone-who-is-paying-attention-to-this-site. :-)

I promise to have more to say here.

Really. Because I promised myself I'd try and do a Drupal issue a day, addressing something on my dashboard, probably from the Examples Project but also maybe in Core or any of the other modules I use.

So when I do one of those, I'll write about it here. Ideally.

Stay tuned.

The Most Basic Color Management Info You Need

Submitted by Mile23 on Wed, 03/07/2007 - 16:17

I: Stating the problem

Suppose you took a picture, and you want to print it out. The color might be accurate on your computer screen, but not so right when you print it out. It might be too dark or maybe not saturated enough.

This is the most basic color management problem. Things look different on the screen than on a printout. Got it? Good. :-)
