Tacky Drush-Based Drupal Installer Script

I'm often kicking off new ideas and projects with Drupal and Bootstrap. By default, I'll usually install modules like Pathauto, Jquery_update, Webform, and others, including Ckedtior and Libraries. This also handles any SymlinksIfOwnerMatch issues in .htaccess depending on your environment. This was created for Virtualmin, so your mileage may vary without some editing. 

Isolated Drum Tracks Extracted: Bonham, Moon, Peart, Copeland, Grohl & Starr

I've been seeing this article getting spammed around lately. It includes a list of youtube videos where popular pop songs have had their drum tracks isolated, some with greater success than others. Anyone who wishes to actually use these tracks in their favorite DAW would have to go through the effort of retrieving the audio from the videos; preferably in the highest quality format. Using the command-line python project, youtube-dl, I've already done this for you. The audio has been extracted from the HD versions of the videos, and converted to 44.1k 16bit WAV files. I've also normalized them a bit.

HTML5 Field Validation With Drupal, Bootstrap, and jQuery

In converting Start Bootstrap's Freelancer theme into a responsive Drupal theme that can take advantage of Drupal's regions and blocks, I also wanted to implement the same HTML5, jQuery, and Bootstrap based contact form field validation that the Freelancer theme came with.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Virtual Machine

I wanted to create a DOS VM to allow people to play Infocom's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Interactive Fiction Game as it was originally designed to be played. The recently rehashed web-based versions available online which include additional graphics and maps I find to be a little tacky and lend to removing the player from their own imagination. This can also be done with other DOS emulators and the original floppy images, but I think grabbing VirtualBox, and firing up a 3MB VM is a little easier for most people than setting up DOSBox and wrangling the files; Free to illegally download due to the inclusion of MS-DOS.

How to Organize and Store Cables

Throughout our short lives, many of us have managed to amass encumbering quantities of power cables, network cables, patch cables, cable adapters, usb cables, firewire cables, hdmi cables, and more cables. Most idiots, me being one of them, have wandered through it thinking it was sufficient to simply keep them rolled up and tossed into a crate or dj bag, possibly secured with some velcro or rubber bands. This inevitably results into the katamariesque constuction of a useless "all-in-one-cable" which may allow you to observe the cable you immediately require, but will probably put around five to five hundred minutes between you and it's usability. The solution: zippered ziploc zipper bags; replete with labels and a file cabinet; or be creative. Use the bags. 

Drupal Webform Nodevalues For Passing Data to a Webform Block

On a client's Drupal 6 based websites, we we wanted to create a seminar registration process where the marketing people could simply supply the information for a seminar content type, and the same registration webform could be re-used for each seminar.

Easy Fancy Mixed Nut Jar Label Removal

Manually peeling sticky labels from jars can be overly stressful and very demanding of one's time. A solution to this problem is using gravity to automatically peel the label from the surface for you.
