Benchmarking Drupal 8.0 RC1

Drupal 8.0 RC1 has just been released! I've been looking forward to improved performance since Wim Leers wrote about Drupal 8's new caching system six months ago.

My quick benchmark shows that Drupal 8 is 3 times slower than Drupal 7 and Drupal 6.

Banning Unethical Modules

On October 20, 2012, I posted a message on Drupal.org about banning unethical modules hosted on Drupal.org. This is my concern:

There are a few modules on Drupal.org that are clearly unethical. For example, Death By Captcha.

I have several issues with Drupal.org hosting such modules:

phpBB Single Sign-On

I had written earlier about phpBB Forum Integration and the need for a complete rewrite. Feeling ambitious one weekend, I decided to take the plunge and create a replacement, phpBB Single Sign-On.

If you'd like to see new features or bug fixes made to phpBB Single Sign-On, please create an issue in the issue queue.

So far the working features include:

My Drupal Jobs

My Drupal Jobs

The easier way to find Drupal work.

I created My Drupal Jobs out of a frustration with trying to manage the whole application process from within my inbox. I reply to many job postings and I needed an easier way to know exactly where I am with each application. I also needed to be automatically notified of new job postings that match my criteria.

phpBB Forum Integration - Is A Complete Rewrite Needed?

Update: March 10, 2013

I've created a potential successor to phpBBforum, phpBB Single Sign-On.

The phpBB Forum Integration module is a Drupal module written by a clever software developer, Vadim, that integrates phpBB with Drupal.

I first got involved a few months ago when I wanted Drupal users on my site to be automatically logged into phpBB.

ImageCache - The Road Ahead

Long term plans for this module

Although Drupal 7 is picking up steam, not all existing Drupal 6 websites using ImageCache will upgrade to Drupal 7. This is why I offered to maintain ImageCache.

myTinyTodo - the best todo list module for Drupal

myTinyTodo is a simple way to manage your todo list. This module is based on myTinyTodo.net

myTinyTodo can be used by end-users or privately by the administrator.
