Someone had posted a comment on my Setting Up Drupal in 10 minutes. This is the response to that reader's questions. Hi Isaac, Great job with the install post! I can't wait for the Testing, Site Structure and Creating Content episodes. You had mentioned previously that you had setup two installs running a total of 10 sites. The multi-site funcionalty sounds amazing! Can you walk me through how you implemented those multi-func setups? Read more
Goodyear will start the 2006 racing season with a new tire leasing program for NASCAR's top three series and racing's first deployment of Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) in the form of an embedded computer chip in the tires to help manage the leased inventory.
Goodyear has been evaluating RFID tracking applications for its tires since 1984 and is currently using the technology to also manage its vendor relationship with Walmart. Read more
The Ames Research Center, at Moffat Field, has over $3.0 billion in capital equipment, 4,000 research personnel and a $775 million annual budget. Ames plays a critical role in virtually all of NASA missions in support of America's space and aeronautics programs. Its role expands beyond the realm of space and into things that impact our daily lives. Ames used synthetic brainpower to design antennas for use on three small ST5 satellites that were launched into Earth orbit in March 2006. Read more
I would like to make some obsevations on usability, or rather the lack there of in product design. For the past 12 months I have been working on a web-based electronic signature service. I sat on every meeting, discussing design, layout and usability. Making sure that our product 'made sense' was very important to me. What's very frustrating is seeing a huge company with very large developement budgets just simply fail to think things through. Read more
Google just released a Goverment specific search portal.
This is basically a competitor to the government's own site FirstGov, which is powered by MSN but looks an awful lot like Google.
Google does have a great little notebook and it wants to share it with everyone.... along with its gmail, spreadsheets, maps, calendars and everything else. The problem, and personally its a huge problem is that while 'everyone' and do everything on Google no one person can do everything in one place. What is the benefit of using Google if all of their services are strung around like someone just spilled the jar of Google? I need a search engine/web portal just to organize all of my Google services. At least Microsoft 'integrates' MS Word with Outlook. Google does nothing of the kind. Read more
eWeek's Lisa Vaas had a brief column in the May 29, 2006 issue
concerning the increasing threat of avian bird flu reaching a global
economic impact. I recalled an article in Baseline regarding the same
subject. The 11/2005 article, "Are you playing chicken?" (online here)
has some critical questions on whether companies and IT teams are
prepared for a US outbreak. "In the U.S., the CDC estimates that a Read more

I saw 3 new movies this past weekend; The Break Up, MI:III, X-Men
III. While I did enjoy the shows this is not a review post. Its a post
on why I can't find RSS feeds for any of my local theaters.
I realized that the normal process I go through for finding my
showtimes is cumbersome. I login into My Yahoo (which I only use
because of the movie listing) and then browse my pre-selected favorite
theaters (edit: Now I use Google Search "movie zipcode" for the desktop
and fandango for my Blackberry). Then I thought, why can't I get these Read more
Like everyone else, I hate arriving to a 404 'page not found'. It's like showing up to a party at the wrong house. Sure you can call and find out where the real party is but in the mean time your just lost. Surfers that arrive to missing pages, if they are like me, will more than likely just leave. After all, google has about another 1,000 results waiting for me. Read more
