The last time I visited the safari download page at apple.com I was shocked to see that they had posted a banner that read: Download Safari The world’s best browser. If you aren’t a web developer you might not understand why I would be shocked, if you are a web developer it shouldn’t be surprising at all.
If you’re in the web development or software development industry then this list will probably remind you of situations you’ve encountered. If you aren’t in the business then I hope this list is educational.

Well it took me about 5 days to get it all together and test it, but finally the Advanced Book Block Module is finished!
This module went much more quickly than the Advanced Taxonomy Blocks module due to the fact that I had already worked out the kinks in the JQuery Menu Api by the time I started. Also I lost less time on stupid bugs since I knew what to expect.
After spending the last week and a half coding like a mad man and testing the thing to make sure there were no glaring bugs I am finally releasing the Advanced Taxonomy Blocks module. This module took a lot more time and effort than I had expected due to the fact that the Drupal api doesn’t provide a taxonomy tree array that gives all of the necessary information in order to integrate with the JQuery menu module and also due to the fact that I had to rewrite a couple of functions in the JQuery menu module in order to get it to open up for other modules to use.
In Drupal 6 views has been completely rewritten from the ground up, and as such we have to adjust the little code snippets that we developers have collected over the years to compensate.
The old way ( Drupal 5 views 1 ) of inserting a view into a tpl or into a php enabled content area was as follows:
This has now changed to the following:
The Jquery Menu Module for Drupal 6 allows you to create a jquery expandable menu block from any of your existing menus. Though it is similar to the existing Drupal Dhtml menu module and the active menu module it is different in several significant ways. The menu to your right is an example of the Jquery menu interface. Click on the plus symbols to the left of the list items to expand the menu.
