Long time since I was here!

Wow. I joined in 2005 and was last active 2007. I remember listening to the MacCast when we were still talking about the new Apple phone with iTunes built in (Motorola Rokr).

I'll leave you to figure out how to make that switch work best…

my current ongoing battle is with Drupal in finding the ideal setup. the problem is configuring Apache to deal with drupal's big memory footprint. it will run fast fast for a while then die into slowness. restarting apache using cron sort of fixes this but that's a DUMB fix. for whatever reason the community is not forthcoming in what the ideal settings / distro should be. this makes me never want to use drupal as a CMS ever again. but clients demand it because they know it. grrr…
