I've admittedly not had much of a visible presence on the site in far too long and wanted to take a few minutes to share what it is that I've been up to.
Much of my time has been taken up by work and its after effects. As lots know, I worked for AtomFilms. I use the past tense because we've been rebranded, refocused, and relaunched as Atom.com.
The new site is pretty cool, but it's been a crazy ride getting there. Actually, there's still a "Beta" moniker attached to the site as we're still working some kinks out, but all the crazy back-end stuff has got me yearning even more for a MWK upgrade!
The big issue with upgrading Drupal, the software that runs MWK, is that some of the modules I use to extend the basic functionality STILL haven't been upgraded to work with the latest Drupal version which was released a loooong time ago.
Thankfully, the image module is finally to the "good enough" stage. What I have noticed are a lot of new modules being created rather than old ones being updated, so I'm going to do some more research on that front and see how jarring a move to those would be for us.
The other thing coming up for air has done is revive my determination in executing a few other projects we've discussed... namely, the book idea and an e-zine with some best-of and editorialized content. I think the latter would be a good place to start, so look for a separate post on that very soon!
Thanks to those who've been sending me little notes over the last few months to say hello. Y'all rock!
Take care and happy summer!
