I’ve updated my Autolink Drupal module to version 1.2.

New with this version is the ability to add text which will be inserted into a rel=”” attribute on the automatically generated link.

You can use this to insert anything relevant into the rel attribute, for example you could use it to add XFN information to links.

Looking at my logs, I noticed that I was getting quite a lot of people looking for old links, particularly for Last Exit to Hypercard.

As a result, I’ve put up most of my old site at http://old.elegantchaos.com.

I’ve been tinkering with CSS and Drupal today, trying to get a better understanding of the theme system.

As a result, I’ve got a new theme as the default on the site. It’s called Heatwave (if you live in London, you’ll understand why I chose that name…) and it’s basically a cleaned up and pared down version of the Croxted theme that I was using before.

I’ve been trying to simplify the design as much as possible, removing duplication in the css and trying to make the whole thing a bit lighter. I’ve also tried to reduce the impact of the tabs (which you generally only see when editing pages).

There are probably still some things wrong or missing, so let me know what you think, especially if you see anything particularly hideous. The old Croxted theme is still available, so if you log in you can switch back to it if you prefer.

Recently I’ve been working on some odds and ends that I wanted to Open Source, so I had to ponder which license to release them under.

This is a surprisingly gnarly question, and I’m not sure if I’ve got the final answer but right now I’ve gone for the GPL, although I did have some concerns about it.

I’ve just noticed an embarrassing error on this site - the software link on the menu bar was doing a search of all blog posts under the software category, instead of linking to the Elegant Chaos Software page as it should have done.

Doh! I’ve fixed it now - apologies for the confusion.
