General Update :: It's been a while

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. So it’s been a while since I wrote anything on this blog. My bad. I’ve been busy living. My last (published) article (I have several drafts I’m debating finishing or just scrapping) was Theming miniseries :: Omega a review [cferthorney.com] and the mini series was out to review the most recent versions of 4 popular base themes for Drupal [drupal.

New year, new beginnings

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. OK I say this every year, but I really must do this blogging thing more often (And actually really start blogging on my company site [contemporaryfusion.co.uk] too).

New 'Summer' Project

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. OK so I have proven decidedly rubbish as blogging in this 12412 [12412.org] lark but having said that on the front page of 12412 they have got May’s project written up in June and nothing for July, so I don’t feel too too bad (But still very guilty) I have managed to calm down a bit by looking at what I have at least tried to learn this year: [Read More]

An additional blog focus

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. OK OK, so I have once again forgone the idea of making resolutions I know I won’t keep. So does a new year mean I have to change? And does it mean I have to make resolutions? No but change still needs to come and here is why… Obviously I will get older (thankfully not the big 30 this year but will do in 2013), supposedly wiser, and probably not get richer (Especially as I am having to slow down the amount of work I do due to health issues with my CF) but all these things are a change.
