Lately, I've been wearing a sysadmin hat. I upgraded my upstairs computer to Ubuntu 11.10, then loaded Apache2, MySQL, PHP, and Drupal. The user interface of Ubuntu 11.10 is quite a bit different from the Ubuntu 10.4 that I had been using. I have yet to decide whether I like it.
I'll use Drupal to build a new blog and webpage at ztlcox.com, replacing the one that lo5an built for me using Wordpress. That one has been such a target for spam that I've stopped using it. I'm going to build a web page where comments can only be made by signed-in and qualified users, about the same level as lj friends. I also want a nicer home for my rejected stories and genealogy studies. lo5an could have done it with Wordpress, but he suggested that I might like to play around with Drupal 7. He was right. So far it has been fun.
