Feb. 15, 2010: So, yesterday I was trying to fix the issues I was having with the glossary page and ended up fixing one of them. After trying so many things on the foreach loop ($def_query as $item) of the view page over the past few days, I decided to change the $def_query to ‘def_query’ to match the code in the controller. It ended up getting rid of the Undefined variable Read more »
I keep just posting these damn things on the weekends, maybe I’ll just make that my thing. Knowing how things work, I’ll start posting in the evenings after I’ve finished for the day. Just to contradict myself. I know me:

There’s nothing like doing so much typing that after a while you just hope that everything has been spelled correctly (there’s no spellcheck in this version of Navicat). Man, are my eyes feelin’ all wonky.
So this week has been an “out-of-sorts” seven days. I ended up getting sick around Tuesday/Wednesday and ended up not making it to class on Wednesday or the internship on Thursday. Hence, I’m doing another double post:
Jan. 26, 2010: Today Stevie and I finally started talking about the website. We won’t actually start mapping out the Drupal framework until the end of next week/beginning of next week, but we did discuss the “glossary of terms” page. The plan is to build a database with the current information, with a Read more »
