I installed Drupal on the North Idaho Mineral Club web site last night. I was unable to configure it, though. It seems that you have to have a real domain name in order to create a new database for use with Drupal. Right now, we are waiting on those laggard 1 & 1 jerks to finish transferring the domain, so we can finish setting up the web site.

Since I couldn’t finish the Drupal install, I switched back to working on the soccer program. I am still working on the word processor. I want to get it exactly right, so there are no complaints about it. To be honest, I needed some distance from the last time I went through all the dialogs to verify they were all working correctly. I haven’t done that since I changed compilers, so it definitely needs doing.


 

My new phone showed up last night. It’s nice, but not a big change from the old flip phone. I guess there is no new thing under the sun, eh? 8-)
