I've been playing with Drupal 7 for the past few days. I have to say, I really like it. I think it's a lot of fun. This could very well be because it's different enough that it's like learning it all over again, so the challenge is there. I really want to upgrade to it so that I'm not left behind. I see that they are already talking about version 8, and I'm still running 6.
Unfortunately, they don't have all the modules I'm currently running available for Drupal 7, so it's just not practical for me to upgrade. So, I shall blissfully remain running 6 for now; but, I think I will continue to play on 7 to see if I can actually get it up and running the way that I want it to. Perhaps, when 8 becomes the standard, I might begin to use 7.
We shall see.
After almost 7 years, 3 locations, 2 servers, 3 platforms, and 3 domains, I think the time may be upon us to call it quits with the Musings of Jo Cose. It's been a lot of fun over the years writing what I thought was witty, entertaining blog entries, and I still get a laugh when I go back and read my posts. I hope that I have lived up to my name and been quite jocose. I hope, also, that you have shared in the laughter and merriment I have tried to imbue in my writing.
I haven't decided 100% if I will be parting ways with this blog yet, and your opinions matter to me. Please send me an email or leave a comment at the bottom of this post to let me know what you think.
Having said all of this, please don't think that I plan to be abandoning my writing or that I will stop blogging. The simple truth of the matter is that it's getting very expensive to keep so may domain names, and I'm beginning to consolidate URLs. Also, my interests have changed, and I would like to blog about other things that don't lend themselves so well to the Jo Cose persona. Unlike Robert Orin Charles Kilroy, I'm not prepared "to throw away this mask," but I am ready to start blogging as me on a completely separate and unrelated site. In fact, I have already started blogging at the new site, and it's going along in about the same fits and starts as this one.
If you're interested in that one, please drop me a line and I'll be happy to send you the new URL.
Thanks for your patronage and support,
