Dining at the Burj al Arab

During my recent trip to Dubai, I stumbled upon this great article on dining at the Burj al Arab. If you are planning a trip out to Dubai, I recommend reading this article. I wish I had read it prior to my trip, as I would have loved to experience the high tea at this beautiful hotel. Make sure not to miss it on your next trip!

Drupal Pop up Confirmation on Node Edit/Add Page

Use this module to help protect users from repeat work and losing time by warning them before they leave the node/edit page by accident. The Node Edit Protection module basically adds some simple javascript to alert the user that they are leaving a node edit or add page without hitting the submit button.

The common case for this is if the user accidentally hits the back button on their browser or accidentally closes the browser tab. If the user is currently adding or editing a node it will pop up a message informing the user that they are navigating away from the page and that any unsaved work will be lost.  Read more »


Locked Phones and Mobile Providers

One thing I strongly recommend everyone to do when deciding on a new phone and mobile provider is to read the fine print. You don't want to spend hundreds of dollars for a phone that can end up being a paperweight in the future. Today, we are going to be talking about a company called Softbank. Read more »


Smart Phone Pictures Pose Privacy Risk - Let's Clarify Things!

WARNING! People can stalk your children and family by looking at your online photos. If you saw the video below, that has been circulating around the web, then you may think the above statements are true. Well, there is some truth to it, but most of it is inaccurate and just down right ridiculous. 

I love watching the news, because it provides me with two things, knowledge of current events (i.e. what the general population is being spoon feed) and comedy relief. I'm amazed by how inaccurate things are reported these days. Your big media agencies must throw darts at a board to create their stories. I often find myself laughing more while watching prime time news than I do when watching an episode of Modern Family, simply because of how ridiculously bad it is.

Drupal 7 and Godaddy Shared hosting with PDO Extension Support

Some of you may be upgrading or installing Drupal 7 on your shared hosting provider in the near future. I wanted to save you all the headache of dealing with hosting company's level 1 support desks. As we all know, if you are a computer expert, developer, or hacker/cracker of several years, there is absolutely no point in calling a IT helpdesk. Odds are you are going to be educating the person whom you are speaking with and they will barely have more knowledge than your uncle that thinks he is a whiz at using his iphone. Read more »


Great Article on Passwords and the Requirements by Different Sites

I came across this great article on passwords and I thought I would share with you all.

"The password creation process on different websites can be a bit like visiting foreign countries with unfamiliar social customs. This one requires eight characters; that one lets you have up to 64. This one allows letters and numbers only; that one allows hyphens. This one allows underscores; that one allows @#$&%, but not ^*()[]!—and heaven forbid you try to put a period in there. Sometimes passwords must have a number and at least one capital letter, but no, don’t start the password with the number—what do you think this is, Lord of the Flies?" - Read more »


Apple's iOS 7 Security Updates

Are you excited about the new iOS 7 security features? Perhaps if you are a consumer, but maybe not if you're a business customer. It seems with the new iOS security changes, managing iOS devices may prove to be a challenge.


Free Education For All!

Recently there have been more and more of these online free education websites popping up. I love the idea, because it's great that anyone in the world has access to free education now. Granted, they will need a computer and internet connection, but  that is slowly becoming available even in developing countries. Five years ago you would have never thought you could take a free online course in cryptography from Stanford! Read more »


Drupal - How to apply Module Patches

Are you a Drupal programmer or someone just starting out with Drupal? You may have come across modules that have issues with their code and you will see the maintainers or someone post up a "patch" for the problem you are experiencing. But how does one apply these Drupal patches?

Even someone that has been playing around with Drupal for some time, may not know how to do this. I came across this guy on Youtube and he makes awesome video tutorials. It's such a treat when you come across tutorials like this. Youtube has no shortage of videos, but videos with value, well that's another story. Enjoy! Read more »
