I lay on my back, staring at the stars in a "freeness" state of mind....thinking. I kept bouncing up hurdles that turned into troubling questions that I did not have the answers too immediately. These questions really puzzled me.

Questions like:

  1. If one billion years elapses, that is surely enough for an entire generation to pass right?
  2. Really and truly, how big is the universe?

So I am currently bored. I decided to google "Shivan needs" and see what I came up with.

Here are the top ten results.

1. Shivan needs prayers

2. Shivan needs this win and a loss from someone just ahead of him to get into the playoffs.

3. Shivan needs to get off his pedestal and realise that to a lot of experienced gamers this game isn't rocket science

4. Shivan needs to walk to the nearest insane asylum

5. Shivan needs to turn 3 more or gain 72 more Zombie points to reach the next level

One day I was just laying in bed staring at my fish bowl (well now my brother's fish bowl)...apparently he named the fish Ziggy.

Ziggy is a gold fish and the size of bowl is about 40 cm in diametre. Then I was thinking: life as a fish must be pretty boring!! Imagine just swimming around in a small bowl with some coloured stones at the bottom. You can literally circle the bowl in like about 3 seconds. How lame! I actually felt sorry for Ziggy.

Today I wanted to merge two PDF files into one final PDF document. On Ubuntu, this was harder than I thought. I have done this on Windows using Adobe and it was pretty simple. I decided that I will make this post so that I can always find the command when I am looking for it. This is a command-line approach. I did not find a nice GUI approach, but if there is anyone out there who has found one, please feel free to leave a comment.

Well that was certainly one of my greatest experiences ever! To all the 29+ organisers, and the Drupal Association, a big hefty CONGRATULATIONS and job well done on hosting a perfect conference. I mean, I expected it to be a good conference, but damnnn, it was far greater than my expectations. I think it was rumoured that this was one of the biggest and most successful Drupalcons ever. Certainly the biggest.

I am certainly looking forward to Drupalcon Paris, although I am not sure if that is financially possible as yet. Time will tell.

Drupalcon Day 1
Wednesday March 4th - Day 1 of Drupalcon and I already feel like I have been here a week! That's because I attended seven (7) full sessions back to back. There was so much information to absorb, so many great people to meet and so much needs being satisfied. Dries' keynote speech was invigorating as was expected. He touched on showing pictures of one of the very first Drupalcons ever with an average turnout of about 30 people. Today, it's a whopping 1400+!! Three meetings rooms were joined together, 3 big white screens and over one thousand people jam packed into the room. It's amazing the wireless network didn't crumble.

This semester, Drupalcon will be held in Washington DC. In case you don't know or you live under a rock, Drupalcon is THE event for Drupal developers. Right now, its sold out with 1400+ Drupal enthusiasts converging under one roof.

This is my first ever Drupalcon (and certainly will not be my last ever!). I am so anxious to meet fellow Drupal developers and finally put a name to their Drupal ID or IRC nick. It's so weird...you collaborate with these guys/girls all the time and yet I have never met them.

I am really looking forward to attending the keynote session by Dries Buytaert, the original creator and project lead of Drupal.
