Manage your TODOs command line style

Why todo.txt? Countless software applications and web sites were built to manage your to do list. But if you're comfortable at the command line and you don't want to depend on someone else's data format or someone else's server, there's an age-old method that's perfect for tracking your stuff: plain text.

Keep on top of all your tasks and projects in a simple file called todo.txt. With a few helper scripts, you can slice, dice, sort, distribute, pipe and munge your lists any way you please. As it should be. Plain-simple. :)

No access for users upgrading drupal from 4.7

Upgrading to Drupal 5.0 may yield unexpected surprises. One surprise can be in a form of "access denied" errors to all but user 1. This is probably left over from an node access control module.

If you find yourself in that situation run the following sql statements:

INSERT INTO users (uid, name, mail) VALUES ('0', '', '');
INSERT INTO users_roles (uid, rid) VALUES (0, 1);
INSERT INTO node_access VALUES (0, 0, 'all', 1, 0, 0);

The Incredibles

There are very few sure things in life. For the longest time I was convinced there were no sure things, but today, I feel confident to say there is at least one sure thing and that is, that Pixar makes exceptional movies. Not just good, not just great or phenomenal... exceptional. They are juggernauts of 3D Animation, the O.G.s of digital imaging and they've made yet another genius film.
THE INCREDIBLES starts in the heyday of the superhero, the comic book world of the pseudo 1950’s where Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) is happy to work in as much heroing as time allows. Bank robbers? Cats stuck in trees? No problem for the dashing Mr. Incredible. He even takes a moment to flirt with Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) before dashing back into the fray. We like this guy right off, because although he's a superhero, he somehow manages to stay just ahead by a tenuous finger hold of luck. And he's loved by the folks in the film, as Buddy, the president of the Mr. Incredible fan club is first to say, he know everything about him.
