The writing and publishing process was an interesting break from my usual Drupal site building and programming work, and I enjoyed it. Working with O'Reilly was great, and I'm thrilled that the book is finally done... at least for now. I expect to be doing revisions for a second edition when Drupal 8.0 comes out (sometime next summer or fall).

The poplarware.com web site has been experiencing some database problems in the last few days, due to a server issue at our hosting provider. The site is running from a new database server now, so hopefully it will be more stable going forward. But due to some lost data (it had forgotten about a large number of the site's pages), I had to restore the site from a backup today (thank goodness I have automatic backups running!). In the process, it appears that I lost a comment or two that had been posted on the site recently.
I've been using Drupal and creating Drupal sites for clients for several years now, and I (finally!) decided it was time to convert my own web site to Drupal too. Like many other people I know in the web industry, I haven't necessarily made my own web site a priority. So, you may have noticed some glitches (broken links, bad text, etc.), but on the whole I think the move was a success.

I am teaching a beginner-level Drupal class in Seattle in two weeks (October 2, 2009), with lots of help from the Seattle Drupal User Group. Enrollment for this class is pretty full, but you can take a look at poplarclass.com, to find out what we're covering. (That site may experience an outage... I was testing out a new web hosting company [A2 hosting], but have decided not to continue with them, for various reasons.
At yesterday's meeting of the Seattle Graphic Artist's Guild, the speaker (Craig Swanson) convinced me of a business case for Twitter that I could actually relate to. So, I'm now on Twitter: @poplarware. Direct email remains the most efficient way to contact Poplar ProductivityWare, however.
