Another year

It is again almost another year since i blogged.

Time is moving fast, cant believe we are in July of 2013!

I have been planning to improve my blogging for too long. I have so much to tell you … especially about my DIY escapades.

WRITING

I would also like to mention two blogs that I have grown to like:

  1. Mr Money Moustache http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/
    T
    His guy retired at thirty and writes a blog about the decisions that empowered him to retire at that age.
  2. Biko Zulu http://bikozulu.co.ke
    He writes for most Kenyan news publications but the blog is purely creative. excellent writer.

WORK

Since my last blog, I have graduated with a second university degree and switched jobs.

My new boss is much different from my old one but still alright.

LIFE

Life keeps getting more interesting every day.

what is up with you.

Drupalcon Copenhagen

Am pretty excited to be headed to Denmark for Drupalcon!

DrupalCon is the twice-yearly gathering of Drupalistas to learn about, discuss, and contribute to Drupal, networking with other Drupal community members in the process. You will have the opportunity to meet Drupal community leaders, top developers, your favorite module maintainers, dojo trainers, members of the Drupal Association, potential business partners, and future employees!

When and where

The European DrupalCon will be held from August 23rd- 27th, 2010 in Bella Center, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Kenyans.

Any other Kenyan headed to Drupalcon? Holla!

homeboyz.co.ke

The homeboys have been around since forever – not a fact you’d recognize by looking at their website. homeboyz.co.ke. its looks like two things
1. It looks like it was designed using Microsoft word – by a learner
2. It is a classic case of how a website design goes to the dogs! see

time to load
the site takes forever to load – like from now till forever plus a little more.  Embeded flash is dead. Nowadays if you even want to lok the least bit knowledgable about what you are doing – you need to do either full flash or o flash. Embedding heavy flash with fuzzy logos at the top is  not OK for  ‘east africa’s leading entertainment provider’.

Images
Gosh! this is criminal!

vidoes
What part of Mejja’s videos has anything to do with the Homeboyz?? I like the songs and would expect to find them in Calif’s site but what on earth has it got to do with you??

Adverts
the entire space is ugly- an amalgamation of colours, banners, images and acute ugliness that would make my 8-year-old niece laugh at you! Of course the images take forever to load. I unlikes this.

ZAIN: Zain’s club 20 expired like forever ago

RE-UP: No No No. How about you try some fresh mixes, online only, opmised for web

DJ ACADEMY/ MIX UP: Why put an advert whose wors we can’t read??? Why? why?

Top 5 music and top 10 videos
For starters, the fonts are too small to read. then whose top 5/10 are these songs? where is the link to vote?  what is the movement from last week’s top ten! hapa tunadanganywa!

this is one of the worst designed websites ever. its only advantage is that it is there. Just there!

I’ve been working on Drupal for sometime now and think I should be writing some updates about it.

I manage a huge huge drupal multisite installation with multiple admins, databases [some content is in mssql dbs] and twenty content types! So may be i have an idea of what I am talking about.

watch this space
