FINALLY a step forward

I just spent the day completing a Lynda.com course. I just completed the "Simplified Drupal Sites with Drush" course. The Certificate can be viewed here. It was a very good run-through of Drush basics. I feel a lot more comfortable with Drush. Using Aegir I have had to become a bit more comfortable with it and this course has simplified my making use of it. Now that I have completed the course I do wish I would have known more about it earlier on.

It's been a month...

Time flies when you have to rebuild your web server at least 10 times...

The last month took forever in one regard, and in another it went by fast.  I was running Ubuntu 12.04 and that came up on EOL (End of Life) the first week of August and in reading about the upgrade I decided NOT to upgrade to the next level of Ubuntu (was reading something about them not using a LTS (Long Term Support) release for their kernel so I decided to move away from that).

The sky has fallen, the sky has fallen

Well, my attempts at learning Omega 4 was a total disaster. It turns out the Omega 4 uses Sass and in order to use Sass one must install all kinds of other program/tools. The procedure for windows was tedious and ended up not working very well so I figured I would install it on my LINUX VM but ended up being just as frustrating and in the process of trying to get Sass installed I ended up hosing up the OS. I ended up reinstalling LINUX twice because the first time reinstalling it I upgraded everything and ended up with incapability issues (guess I need to learn much more about LINUX before doing anything as advanced as upgrading php to 5.5 and drush to 7) but I finally got things up and running again and I decided to abandon Omega 4 for the moment. I got Aegir back up and running and installed a couple of distributions, Commerce KickStart and Bahai Incubator
