Using Drupal 7, I needed to programattically add a useragent field (webform calls these components) and a url field to my webform nid 7477.  The url field is a hidden field of type: Hidden element (less secure, changeable via JavaScript.)  If you leave off the extra array in the url definition, it will be the normal hidden type.  You can see this when you click the edit button for this component.  I hope someone finds this useful.

My beloved Firefox has been doing something strange when it tries to view websites that have certificate problems such as expired certificates.  For some reason my desktop computer would pop up a bland dialog box whining about the site uses an invalid security certificate.  My laptop doesn't seemt to do this.  Apparently no-one on the internet has ever experienced this problem so I felt it would be useful to share the solution with folks. 


Here is the alert box:


Ducks return to the place they were brooded, much like the local salmon.


Well it finally happened - Drupalcon came to Austin.  I'm excited to attend and meet many of my Drupal buddies. 


It’s been a tough week.

My neighbor, who is very sweet, as well as developmentally challenged, has a habit of coming into my backyard and leaving the gate open.  At least I think it is she who leaves it open... The gate is often mysteriously open after I meticulously close it, and I doubt the chickens know how to open the latch. I know she visits when I'm not home because I've found her there before.

Yesterday morning was the Drip Irrigation Demonstration at Linda and Kurtis Colonna's lovely home in Manchaca. The plan was to install two irrigation systems, one at what I am calling the "Tropical Hook," and the other at the swale and berm they built at the corner of the yard where the driveway meets the street, which I'm calling the "Angle Berm".

Recently, I remarked on Facebook that I needed to thin down my flock of (then) 28 Ameraucanas because the cost of chicken feed was encroaching into the human feed budget. My friend Lorien Hoover sent me a link for Fermented Feed:

Recently, one of my clients let their subscription to AVG anti-virus lapse and all 8 computers on their network were complaining about the subscription having expired.  I purchased a new license key and went about putting it into the AVG's that were running. Strangely, the field for the license number was grayed out so I couldn't paste it in. 

Hi All,

We had a great organizational meeting this past Saturday, after the work part of our day, at Posse East in Austin, Texas. 

Our objectives for meeting were to, 1) make sure we keep up our gardens after they are installed, 2) create work teams and team leaders for upcoming permablitzes, 3) plan the August permablitz, and 4) visit Kealing Middle School and begin the design process for the September permablitz.
