As this blog is pretty much redundant as anything useful in my personal life, and I tend to put updates and interesting things into Facebook (stupid walled gardens!), I am going to use this blog as a means to document some learnings around Drupal 8 and specifically a move from this install of Drupal 6 directly up to Drupal 8.
Finally got my *rse in gear and have upgraded this stagnant site to Drupal 6, I have disabled the gallery for now as the upgrade was consuming *lots* of memory (eeek). Have switched from the old connections theme to fresh_media for now...
Well my more recent foray back into Drupal has led me to be sitting here at nearly midnight on a Saturday night upgrading my install of Drupal for this site to 5.10 (and Gallery to the latest version). All nice and secure now (gives me that fuzzy feeling - or is that a lingering beer buzz?).
Well Gallery2 actually. After a server upgrade and some tinkering I have managed to not only get the gallery of all my photos back online but got the drupal integration working properly (well at least until i can move the gallery menu into the drupal one...) Now all I need to do is add some recent pictures... At least you now get a random image in the righthand column anyway... nice!
Oh and then sort out the rest of the site! :)
