iPod Touch iOS4 update problems

A little over a month ago I finally joined the millions of iPod owners by purchasing a 64GB iPod Touch. Between then and now I busied myself in ripping scores of my CDs onto my Mac Mini and thence synching that to the iPod.

Today when I connected the iPod up, iTunes asked me if I would like to install iOS4. OK I thought, why not?

Simple answer: because it might trash the whole thing and waste my evening.

Daft oversight having installed AddThis sharing module

Realising I should be more savvy in respect of sites like Facebook, and not just in the sense of actually joining (done, just), I tried out the AddThis module which promised automatically to add suitable buttons on to my content.

And so it did, but when I tested with Firefox 3.6 what happens when a visitor tries to share a node in Facebook before they are logged in, I got a surprise.

Creating a DATETIME View handler for Views2

Background

A couple of years ago I created a Drupal module to instantiate and process a content type for my own calendar of events. The "proper" Event module seemed too complicated (at least for a newbie as I then was) and anyway I wanted some practice at coding a module.

However I did take a look at Events and this is what prompted me to use DATETIME date columns in my schema declarations, because Event uses that datatype. At the time I wasn't aware that Event is about the only contributed module that does use DATETIME.
