Low Hanging Fruit
During our Drupal Multimedia panel on Monday, Nate Haug (quicksketch) mentioned that soon we will be discontinuing the Image module, and providing a migration for existing Image Nodes to ImageField (or its replacement). The same thing needs to happen to the Video module. That could happen now. The module that provides a migration path for …Read more »

So I scanned through the list to see if anyone else was planning …Read more »
Hotlinking Images? No. Wget Instead.

Although this is technically possible, and easy to implement in the module’s framework, this practice is also known as hot-linking, and I’m not particularly interested in enabling that sort of functionality.

Embedded Media Import Roadmap
So I had a dream last night. About Drupal, as I often do. I envisioned a way to make Embedded Media Import, which is bundled with Embedded Media Field, far more useful than it currently is. And I don’t think it’ll be too difficult to implement either. I plan to work on this at DrupalCon, …Read more »
This Blog is Built in Drupal 6
I’ve finally decided to set up a personal blog, which you are looking at right now. I can usually find a few minutes a day to write about whatever’s going on, but haven’t had a decent forum for some of it, or stuff gets all scattered. As most of my day is spent working with …Read more »
