DrupalCon and archive.org

Was noseying around websites for previous DrupalCon’s and found that previous events have video available hosted on the archive.org site. Even better, archive.org offers RSS feeds based on queries so to get an automated podcast download of DrupalCon chicago 2011 you can use e.g.

http://www.archive.org/services/collection-rss.php?query=subject:drupalcon%20chicago%202011

The Chicago video alone is 48 sessions and over 11GB of MP4s chock full of Drupal goodies…I may be gone for some time 🙂

Mobilising

Since I’ve spent a lot of today at work configuring WordPress installations what do I do when I get home…yes indeed, configure my own WordPress installation. Am experimenting with various plugins so there may be a few different features being tested/trialed. First up, a plugin for serving up a mobile version of a WordPress blog via WPTouch. Have tried it using an iPod touch and the site loads much more quickly and strips things down to lightweight lists rather than full text entries on the homepage. Love this functionality, things are just so easy these days with these huge repositories of plugins/modules. I’m like a kid in a sweetie shop.
