SoSLUG's Alan Campion, has done a wonderful job of teaching us all about things we can do using the new HTML5 canvas tag. This is designed as a supplementary article to his efforts, to show some things you can do with the HTML5 canvas tag to save/serialize it's data for use elsewhere.
Lucid Lynx and Drupal 5
If you are a Drupal lover like us or not, it could not have escaped you that Drupal doesn't function very well in Lucid Lynx the reason is neither Drupal's fault nor Ubuntu. The fault lies this time with PHP (PHP Hypertext Processor) Lucid Lynx uses LAMP (Linux, Apache, Mysql, PHP). Many components around Drupal, Linux and Apache core are updated often and in some case regularly PHP is one such component.
Drupal on your Localhost Desktop PC
SoSLUG is changing, with membership increasing almost weekly we have decided to provide more help and assistance to our members by providing formal workshops on a monthly basis covering subjects that as a group, our members would like more information on. These formal workshops will take place each 2nd Thursday in the month starting with me Derek Shaw on the 9th April covering the Drupal installation. Future workshops will include MPD (Mplayer deamon) and client applications by Dan Patynski and Ardour and Jack workshops by Gary Cordery.
