Plan B: Blogging via email
It's late on a Friday, so I figured I'd play around a bit with some of the advanced capabilities of my content management system (Drupal). The wonders of open source continue to amaze me in that people build these great capabilities and contribute them, gratis. It's cool.
After having the Internet connection at Incite Central down a few weeks ago, I figured it was time to start looking into Plan B, just in case. I've actually got a number of Plan B's in mind. I'll get an EV-DO card, once Sprint starts selling their USB modem, so it'll work with my Macbook. I'm hopeful that this will reduce my caffeine intake as well. Every time I go to a different coffee shop to work, I get one of those big coffee drinks. Let's just say I'm an excitable guy to begin with, but after a big coffee or two - WATCH OUT!
I also wanted to be sure I could post to my blog via email, as my Blackberry is pretty reliable. Thus, my Friday afternoon experimentation. A little hocus-pocus, couple of hand waves, a contributed module (called mailhandler), a new email box and BAM! I'm posting via email.
Now this is cool. Not rain, nor sleet, nor crappy Internet service, nor computer failures will keep me away. Have Blackberry will blog is my new motto. Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
