My G1 had to be put down Saturday.

My G1 has survived a lot of abuse at my hands. Many wipes, hacks, failed mod attemptsโ€ฆ

However, what ultimately led to its demise was a simple hardware failure; also possibly my fault.

It seems as if the Red Power button was stuck down. So no matter what I was doing the Power Off menu kept popping to the foreground. As soon as I would dismiss it, pop! It would be back again. Which made it impossible to anything with the phone.

Mobile Themed my Drupal site.

I wanted to offer a 'lighter' theme for mobile visitors so I tried out the Mobile Tools module http://drupal.org/project/mobile_tools
I got it to work for me after I made some customizations.

It is very good module that has a lot of options...
The method that appealed to me the most was an option to display a block asking the user if they would like to switch. It even detects if its a mobile user browsing the desktop version. That way you don't have to have the block up all the time.

Drupal, blogapi, Twitter, PixelPipe &Android

I like all the items mentioned in the title.
I use the drupal twitter module to send tweets when I add content to my site. I use pixelpipe to send content to my site from my android phone via drupal's blogapi module.
Unfortunatly the blogapi module does not trigger the twitter module.
One work around is using the actions/trigger module but that doesnt pipe the URL though tinyurl first.
Here is my solution.
I altered the twitter_actions.module so that it automagicly converts the url (using existing code)
