Blogrimage 2014 Day 1: Let the Games Begin

3/2/2014 in Pathfinder RPG by micah

I wasn't going to join the blogrimage this year, but after hearing Pradeepan talk about Soylent this morning, I decided to join the fun. Besides, I started something new yesterday, so all I need to do is write an extra blog post today to catch up.

So, for the next 29 days, I'm going to explore what it takes to be a Pathfinder RPG Game Master. If that sounds like I've reverted to childhood and gone back to playing D&D, you're right.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 30: Well, that could have gone better

4/2/2013 in Life Online by micah

So today marks the thirtieth day of the Blogrimage, and I am nowhere close to having completed thirty posts. Nor am I satisfied with my progress on my blogrimage projects. Getting sick definitely hampered my efforts, but there's also the fact that my overall busyness makes it difficult to take on new projects.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 22: Why I'm not asleep

3/26/2013 in by micah

Did I mention yesterday that I've been sick for a week? I thought so. Then why am I still awake tonight? Working on the blogrimage, of course. For the next couple of days, I'm putting my Drupal 8 blogrimage aside and focusing on the site that I told Pradeepan I'd help him build for this. And by help, I basically mean, do it, because it involves figuring out all kinds of really finicky Drupal modules that don't work as advertised.

tl;dr: Go check out with the understanding that it's not done yet!

Blogrimage 2013 Day 21: Sick Days

3/24/2013 in Drupal by micah

All in all, by the time I was done being sick, I'd missed almost a week of my blogrimage.

That's right. I didn't even touch a computer for four days, so I definitely skipped out on my blogrimage by being sick. This really hasn't worked out as planned.

But I did make some progress tonight. I submitted a patch against the Drush bug I filed back on day 6 or so.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 15: How did I miss two days?

3/19/2013 in Drupal by micah

I'm not sure how I missed two days. I thought I posted something on Saturday, but I guess not.

tl;dr: I time on Saturday building a test web server, did church audio stuff on Sunday afternoon, and did some configuration work on tonight, so there's not much to report on my Drupal 8 blogrimage project.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 12: Where have all the pictures gone?

3/15/2013 in Drupal by micah

When I checked the site today, I realized that all but one of the photos I'd attached to the Summer Vacation story were missing. Not sure what went wrong, but I uploaded and saved them again. Hopefully they'll stay in place this time!

Blogrimage 2013 Day 11: I had a big lunch

3/14/2013 in Drupal by micah

Some days you get a lot done. Some days you go out to lunch with the guys and are a little unfocused when you get back. Well, that's kind of what happened, but today was actually a pretty productive day. Worked through a site upgrade this morning, then got sucked into reading a week's worth of Drupal news (courtesy of The Weekly Drop) and learning a whole bunch of useful stuff after lunch, then digging back into the rest of that upgrade. So no work on other projects today.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 10: Threadbare

3/13/2013 in Drupal by micah

Today's blogrimage exercise was to try to make the site look a little bit nicer. This is by no means a final theme, which is why I named it Threadbare. The name Threadbare is a pun; it's based on the core Stark theme and incorporates the "fabric" of The Green Bag in its background image.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 9: Pictures are Back!

3/12/2013 in Drupal by micah

Ok, first an update for the non-nerds following my blogrimage! Pictures are back on and I finally got around to reformatting the How I Spent My Summer Vacation story from 1999 into a single (readable) page. So the main contents of the site (our family story circa 2004, the history of The Green Bag, and the 1999 summer mystery tour) are all intact once again.

Blogrimage 2013 Day 8: Patch testing

3/11/2013 in Drupal by micah

Not much progress to report today, but didn't want to miss a day's post on the blogrimage. Spent some time today testing patches and researching. That's about it.
