About a year and a half ago, I came across a post by Miguel Jacq about deploying Drupal automatically with Jenkins. I had grown tired of the manual backup->upload->test->crossFingers->pray->yellExpletives approach to developing or upgrading a Drupal site.
I haven't had a printer in my office in a long time. Ink was just too expensive because I'd print so little that the ink cartridges would dry out before I even got 10% of the way through them. And at the time, color laser printers were prohibitively expensive. So for the two clients that actually wanted something on paper mailed to them, I just used an email-to-snailmail service.
H.R. 3261 (Stop Online Piracy Act) and S. 968 (Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act) are absolutely bad for online freedom. I normal restrain my political postings to my other blog, but I believe that this is important and relevant to the target audience of this website enough so that I believe that I should post something here, too.
Every Drupal developer knows that there many configuration settings that are similar between the sites that they build, whether it's a personal preference or a trend among clients. And every developer that has been around Drupal more than a few minutes knows about the Features module.
A some already know, I have chosen to start hosting Drupal installs for clients. At some point (hopefully soon), I'd like to open this service up to the public. But that's not what you came here to read about.
