I couldn't access my website this morning and I was planning to add more content and forward pages from my old site (using 301 permanent redirects). It turned out that t35 hosting's MySQL was down - meaning that everyone's websites, including t35.com, were unable to access MySQL databases.
By this afternoon the site was back up so I uploaded some of my old pictures of places I've travelled to. These include Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Italy, Spain and South Africa. Check out the photo galleries here.
As you've probably already noticed I've also included "random image" block in the sidebar, and below that my Twitter stream.
The gallery is an open-source web application called Gallery (brilliant name eh). It integrates really well with Drupal and you can't even tell that it's a separate application. It's a very mature application; the developers recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. There's a few things that I would like changed but on the whole it's easy to use and provides all the features I need. I haven't looked into theming it yet - that'll come when I theme the whole site.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, there are thousands of modules available for Drupal - the Twitter block in the side bar is part of the Twitter module for Drupal. It also allows automatically posts to Twitter when I submit a new blog post!
Here's another - it's El Deir ("The Monastery") - a temple an hour long walk up a steep rocky path in Petra, Jordan. By the way, it was featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and I can tell you that it's not possible to see the pyramids in Cairo from Petra. That ruined the film for me; I couldn't think about anything else.
Anyway, if you want to see more pictures then go ahead. If you don't, well that's ok too - I'm sure you have something important to do.
I didn't just play with my website today. I did some work too. I read some papers on software watermarking though they weren't very interesting ones.
