Add user blog submenu in Drupal

I've been playing with seriously researching this for a bit and I found a solution to my problem. I am setting up a Drupal site for our library and wanted to have submenus for each individual blog under the blog primary menu. I may just be daft for not being able to find this on Drupal.org, but instead stumbled upon a solution on my own.

IRS to libraries: "Thank You"

After posting about taxing resources recently - discussing the added burden of library resources as government and business push off services and access to the web - I was pleased to see this letter sent to the ALA from the IRS. Notable quotes:
We appreciate the important role libraries play in meeting individual needs for tax help and information.

The grass is always 00FF00er.

Spring! Trees budding, lots of rain, birds singing. Time to turn to yard maintenance as well, which for me isn't much, but for many is quite the ritual and often an expensive one at that. I wanted to blog about something lawn-related, but wondered how it fit into my technology angle - I think I got it. I usually walk to work and have noticed a few prime properties whose grass appears eerily green. It seemed strange that the grass was so green so early in the spring, but on closer examination, I realized that the lawn was simply spray-painted green. Hmmmm.

OSS Freedom!

I came to a sudden realization recently and it can be expressed easily: I started using OSS because it was free, using OSS has made me free. (I'm finally getting what RMS means by free software!) I just gave a round table presentation at the OLA (Oklahoma Library Association) conference titled OSS onramp, and I am relieved to have it over and quite excited with the feedback from it. The round table featured my fellow students from last semester who had used OSS in their projects.

Please mind the gap.

I was speaking to a colleague who just returned from a trip to the U.K. and she commented on how in the tube there was a constant recorded message to mind the gap (between the platform and the train) which is still oddly stuck in her head. Well, I am asking that you mind the gap as well perhaps not with any mind-numbing recording, but with apologies. It has been a big gap in my posting to this blog and it is not for lack of ideas, but for lack of time.

Organic software?

organic software Firefox has a great new ad campaign touting the claim that Firefox is 100% organic software. What a great ad campaign and what a great new term for OSS. From their site:
As software companies go, we’re a little unusual.

Hotmail not so hot.

Patrons were very upset today because of problems logging into Hotmail. I tried to assure them that it was not anything to do with our computers or network, though many still think we control all aspects of the Internet.

Taxing resources

For some, their single annual visit to a public library is to get their necessary tax forms. In Oklahoma, public libraries have an added burden this year. The Oklahoma Tax Commission is NOT sending any forms to public libraries as they have in the past. Instead they are instructing libraries to point patrons to the website where they can print out the necessary forms.

Congratulation Firefox!

Firefox is about to break has broken 500 million downloads as this New York Times article points out.
