Drupal community for swapping tips and finding people to help you with all your Drupal-related problems.
Task management is not an easy thing. For software projects, it can get extreme. We don't really have a big programming dept here at EverythingHQ, but there is still enough noise around to need a plan.
We are using Eclipse as a development IDE, and Mantis as our issue tracking tool. Both tools are far from perfect, but they do help us get the job done. Today, I made them a little nicer by linking the two together.
"It's natural for organizations to learn from mistakes. The problem is, people who propose new checks almost never consider that the check itself has a cost."
Here is a nice little bit of bash snagging for you. You need to grab lines from a file, process each in turn, and then at the very end report whether or not there was a problem for any of them. Simple ? Not quite.
The following scripts are mangled to show how this works, so don't expect them to operate as-is.
cat $CONF | grep backup | grep @ |
while IFS=$TAB read var1 var2 var3 var4
echo PROBLEM: $PROBLEM
Disclaimer: The worst bit about this lesson is that, as I have written this note, I have realised that what I had planned to be the lesson was incorrect! Anyway, I will post this anyway because I may need to remember all this next time.
Todays Drupal lesson: Keeping things and filters seperate. It's going to apply to any kind of social media site, but this is a little Drupal specific note.

I have been trying to get my head around ssh tunnels lately as I need to be able to access a development web server on our private network that doesn't have an IP accessible from the internet.
It's taken me a while to understand what is going on; it can be pretty confusing.
I'd recommend the following for a good explanation of what ports are used, e.g. when your browser requests a page:
And I thought this was probably the best single page explanation of tunneling:

Slashdot had a great comment thread on helpful/stupid linux commands the other day - "cd" is one of the most basic commands in linux and one of the first you learn, but I never knew that "cd -" would change your directory back to the last one you were on.
The best comment though was the Russian Roulette method to delete something (the original had rm -rf / of course):
[ $[ $RANDOM % 6 ] == 0 ] && rm some-file-to-delete || echo "You live"
Every member of School of Everything can add notes, links, videos, images, documents and other things to the site that help people learn or teach a particular subject. If you're learning, you can use it to keep track of your progress in your subjects and all the things that help you learn like useful websites or how-to videos.
If you're teaching, you can share useful resources and advice that you think will help people learn you subjects. You can tag each resource post with one or more subjects, and your posts will appear to other people looking for those subjects.
School of Everything is all about meeting up in the real world.
Here are some tips on how to arrange your learning and teaching safely.
