Drupal 5 release candidate

Rejoice fellow Drupalites! After just two betas we present you the first Drupal 5 release candidate (RC1).

Download it from: http://drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-5.0-rc1.tar.gz.

You can read about the new features in the beta 1 announcement. In contrast to the beta’s, most debugging has been done and, should no more fatal bugs emerge, this version is release worthy. A list of all the bugfixes since beta 2 can be found on the release page.

Block Office Chatter

Introducting ChatterBlocker,
the PC software that uses digital audio technology to mask
the sound of speech and other distractions so you
can
stay focused in any environment.

ChatterBlocker does not use noise-cancellation.
Instead it masks unwanted conversations with a soothing blend
of
nature sounds, music and background chatter.

The goal is to render speech less intelligible,
because intelligible speech is often the most distracting
sound in
the workplace.

Sad that it has gotten this bad in corporate America, but here is the link none the less…

Google offers custom search engine


Wouldn’t it be cool if you could easily build a search engine on
your blog or website tailored to the topics and areas you know and love
the most? You’re not alone if you’d like that — we’ve heard from
partners large and small, and users across the web who want access to
the Google search platform, and want to customize and make it their own. Read more

Pretty simple to do. I went ahead and made one to search my blog. You can search my blog here

Quit Wasting My Time!

I’ve been seeing an alarming trend in the last few weeks/months. Websites are trying to push out there so fast that they show all their features but they don’t work yet. What I mean is they have links that go to a page for you to enter in information, thinking you will get the expected result and then once you fill everything in and hit submit, BOOM! you get some type of error saying this isn’t implemented yet.

Knock it off! If I wanted to waste my time I could find a lot better things to do than screwing around with your crappy un-friendly user interface for twenty minutes complete with anal validation only to find a big “Sorry you cannot do that yet”.
