Hierarchical representation of Taxonomy and pathauto

First of all with just the inclusion of taxonomy I wasn't able to get the desired URL, let alone the hierarchical representation. For that include the pathauto module and include the pattern as blog/[termpath-raw]/[dd]/[mm]/[yyyy]/[title-raw] in the pattern for all blog entry paths of the node path settings in automatted alias settin.

To delete all the url aliases generated automatically as well as user created go to

site building -> URL alias -> delete alias

Applying patch to drupal module manually

In order to get the additional feature of drupal there was a patch released by mattman (http://drupal.org/files/issues/hide_submenu_01.patch) which to my dismay did not apply the patch to the module. So had to do it manually and since the patch was not that big I could easily carry out the task. There were helpful links in drupal on how to get the thing done.

virtual space of my own

This virtual space is designed using drupal atop ext3 fs. The uderlying OS is without doubt GNU/linux.

I never thought of getting a virtual space of my own but then I realized that I was spending unusually  large chunks of my time in front of my box and noting things down on pieces of paper and retrieving it was getting frustating. So it's good get my things organized online :). lets see how this turns out.

Whoami revisited

It's bit tricky how you perceive yourself. It can be either how the world looks at you or how you look upon yourself?

LIving ForEver - LIFE

we as a species are never content in a good way.

It's almost as if being opiniated is instilled in us from childhood.

Life - having felt things that no one cares to feel -

Other day involved in changing the port of apache

It was a simple task of accesssing the webpage from different box in a lan env, but for some crappy reason the wa3002g4 router won't allow the traffic to pass.Igniting the grey matter and a bit of googling found that most of the port in the router is blocked and those allowed are 80 and some other predefined services like tftp, telnet. The port 80 is reserved by the router to access the webadmin page. So thought of changing the port of my webserver to 8080.

NB:- I was able to ping between two boxes. Hmmmm

sudo vi /etc/apache2/ports.conf
