Database layer done. Need some testers

I have finished up the database layer for Drupaltin 2 and need some testers. This database layer interfaces both the Drupal and vBulletin database to Drupaltin, which is a very important piece.

Something else which is new is the svn repository. I have started a repository for Drupaltin so it is easier to keep track of things. So far I have only committed the database layer, but I will soon be committing other code I have done ;-)

Checkout the the handbook page on SVN for more info on that.

It's Alive!

In the time since my last Drupaltin blog post a lot of things have happened. Probably one of the biggest is the release of vbDrupal 5. I want to start off by saying that Drupaltin and vbDrupal are not the same. vbDrupal is a fork of Drupal which is a heavily modified version of Drupal with it's own code thrown in the mix. It all sounds fine and dandy except the code is not built by hundreds of developers and tested by thousands and used by hundreds of thousands. What does this mean?

Corsair puts water cooling on ice

DDR Dominator developer Corsair has made a name for itself with memory but last year, after making cooling solutions only for RAM modules, it was entered the water-cooling club by releasing the Nautilus 500 system. The system featured a pretty basic setup and, although it was easy to install and had a price tag of only $200, it hasn't made a big enough splash.

Although we can't tell you any exact numbers, the Nautilus 500 hasn't been as successful as Corsair wanted and because of this the company has put cooling projects on hold indefinitely.

Is your phone free?

The OpenMoko project has debuted what could be the ultimate geek handset: a Linux-based mobile phone, complete with an open-source operating system and application suite.

The Neo 1973 handset, which starts at $300, has been under development for the last six months. OpenMoko encourages developers to get their hands dirty by supplying a complete software development kit along with the phone. The advanced edition even comes with a Torx T6 screwdriver for those whose hacking isn't limited to software.


Manufactured by First International Computer, of Taipei, the Neo 1973 is intended to be a hacker's mobile phone, an open platform that anyone and everyone can programme and play with. The idea is that a multitude of small-scale tweaks and developments will create something with which large companies can't complete, the same way that Linux has proved successful.

AMD Phenom expected in November

AMD's delays on their latest product lines haven't helped them any, and in fact have made the market a pushover for Intel. Even now, motherboard manufacturers are estimating that AMD will make their latest and greatest Phenom CPUs available no sooner than November. It also seems that at launch, a mere four varieties of Phenom will show up – making it a bit difficult for retailers to craft a wide variety of options for their customers. In fact, only two models of quad-core Phenom are expected to be available.
