Bash script for updating Drupal Core

Updating Drupal core always makes me a bit nervous, as it involves ripping out the old version and inserting a new. Not having access to Drush, I decided to make a shell script that would automate the steps, eliminating the usual risk of human error. The following is the script. It’s heavily commented, so I’ll keep extra remarks to a minimum.

Scandinavia Slide Show

Recently, Beth, Cody, Jill and I went to Scandinavia (mainly Norway) with my brother and his wife. Attached are a few of the pictures we took. Among us, we took over 2500 pictures, so choosing a few was difficult. Hope these convey some of the feeling of the trip!

Mais do Brasil

Ola pessoal! I just got back from a two-day excursion to Chapada Diamantina (Diamond Plateau), a national park in the state of Bahia about a 7 hour drive away. I went with eight other people (7 girls and 1 other guy) and we took a bus from Salvador at 11:30 pm so that we could sleep on the bus and arrive in the morning.

Um pouco do Salvador

Olá gente, I am writing this blog from Salvador, Brazil in the state of Bahia where I am studying. I have now been in Salvador for three weeks and finally feel somewhat adjusted to the city. I live in a large, two-story penthouse apartment with my host dad (Manuel), my host mom (Noemia) and my host brother (Paulo) on Avenue Sete de Setembro (the day of Brazilian Independence) in an area called Vitoria which is the classiest and safest area of Salvador.

Armação dos Búzios

In the winter, Armação dos Búzios is a quiet beach resort made famous by Brigitte Bardot (one of the pictures below is her statue). Apparently it is shoulder-to-shoulder packed in the summer. They call it the Saint-Tropez of South America. Heavily visited by South Americans (including plenty of Brazilians); very few from the USA. If you don't know some Portuguese, you’ll have to learn quickly—few people speak any English.
