Got an email from Arpit with this snapshot. Worth a read for everyone… Its part of the Economic Times Awards for corporate excellence campaign.

I will just type a few lines

Wake Up India.

It’s Time To

Not Go To Work.

It’s Time To Get People

To Work For You.

Don’t Be An Engineer

Just Because You Have

A Degree In Engineering. Do What You

Think You’re Good At. And You’ll Be Good

At What You Think. Start Something

That’s Your Own. Where You Cant Be

Sacked. And You Certainly Can’t Quit.

Drupal. PITA. Avoid.

2 Mar 2009 In: How To's, Tech, Website

Manan writes the first Guest Post on my blog.  Manan is an engineering student who enjoys blogging. Spends majority of his time on the internet following tech blogs & tweeting. A fan of Microsoft & someone who hates Linux. 😀 He blogs at http://beingmanan.com

Many blogs, many feeds. It becomes difficult to filter & follow. So was the idea behind me setting up website dedicated to Microsoft, the idea was simple – an aggregator & self posted content. Searched on the net for plugins for WordPress failing to find anything that would suit me I came across Drupal which had the “module” for feed aggregation. Having heard about Drupal in the past I decided to set it up & the rest is a painful history.

The pinch was felt quick, the admin mode is a maze. It requires a good amount of time to be spent in order to remember what is where. The jargon doesn’t make sense. For example tags, the world knows what they mean & their function but in Drupal they have “taxonomy” that’s used for categorization & tags. Upon realizing what “taxonomy” actually is begins the next challenge, that being of setting it up. Good luck with that. Make sure to do it right ‘coz you will have to push the limits of ease-of-use to edit them.
