Certificate headaches

Creating and managing PKI certificates is always tricky. A small list of what went wrong today when following my own guide for importing your own Oracle Enterprise Manager certificate:

Tag clouds

It is quite hard to find a good tag cloud for Drupal 7.

I had hoped to find a views based solution, as that would be the most flexible. Or, at least, it should be able to filter on content type (as I have one vocabulary for two content types).

Virtual Debian

I have been trying to get old versions of Debian to run as virtual machines. Most of it works without trouble, but there are some things you should be aware of, if you want to try it yourself.

My host is a Debian Wheezy machine running Linux kernel 3.11 and Qemu/KVM 1.1.2, using Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager) 0.9.1.

Releasing old software

After a long, long time, I decided to release a new version of psiconv. That is tooling I wrote between ten and fifteen year ago. In those days I owned a Psion 5 (and later the upgraded model, the Psion 5MX), a small PDA with keyboard running EPOC (also known as EPOC32, a precursor of Symbian).

Images are just files

Just a quick one this time: in Drupal, the image field type is based on the file field type. That means that if you are looking for a way to use IMCE to upload images, the IMCE for File Field module will just do the job.

Creating a poor man's blog

Sometimes you have to write your own Drupal modules. Sometimes you need some heavy weight module. But often, you can fit several smaller modules together to get what you want.
