Opps! Changing teaser/excerpt module changed a few things. And I'm not up to going back for two months of posts to adjust. Tongue

Since upgrading from drupal 4.7.x to 5.x I've been using a module called nodeteaser to make customized teasers for the front page(s). In the past I'd always used one called excerpt, but I didn't notice it wasn't available for 5.x until I'd already done the upgrade.

nodeteaser worked, but it had a few drawbacks or "shortcomings" that make the excerpt module preferable. Finally, the author released a version of it for drupal 5.x and I changed back.

When the excerpt module was no longer available, the teasers made with it didn't disappear. However when I disabled the nodeteaser module, all the teasers made with it disappeared. So, the cool teasers I take several minutes to edit and format are gone for the past two months. With that are the front page site disclosures as well.

Which is the main reason for this post. I'm not discontinuing the practice of informing visitors of the site being linked on the front page, nor did I remove the current ones on purpose. They will begin again and continue using the excerpt module as before.

Sorry folks. Tongue

  • Open education: How students save money by creating open textbooks
    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
