Disable MySite in Sharepoint

Developing a Sharepoint intranet that doesn't confuse users and give free reign to click happy staff can be a daunting task. One of the biggest issues I've come across in the deployment of SharePoint is the idea that yes it can do that but no we shouldn't use the feature.

MindMixer.com gives a voice to all but will they be heard?

I came across MindMixer.com today and immediately felt the need to write about the site. It's a concept I have been looking to get into for some time, the idea of giving all a voice, especially in making improvements in their own town. Personally I stayed away from building an online community for such a purpose due to the need to build traffic and get users to sign up for ANOTHER site.

Theming Drupal Blocks in a Zen Sub-theme

Adding block styles to your sub-theme are important for several reasons. My original objective behind learning to style blocks was to eliminate large  titles and awkward spacing that was inherited from the parent style sheets, especially the H2 tag. Once I got a grasp on how easy it was to style individual blocks or groups of them I started to utilize this more. Blocks.css comes packaged in your sub-theme's CSS directory with many useful classes and ID's listed (commented with their purpose as well).
