I recently purchased a cool new 4 TB external WD hard drive for backups. When I plugged it in and rebooted my computer, I got a black screen and never saw windows boot up. I spent some time looking at various posts but never found anything useful so I thought I'd post my solution here.

If you check Drupal 7 module updates and you get messages indicating no available releases found for modules that you know are legitimate. It usually looks something like this. The URL is ../admin/reports/updates There is a quick fix:
What a great utility Drush is. If you don't know, it is a command-line utility for use to do all sorts of amazing things to a Drupal system. You can easily make a quick database backup with the following command:
On Drupal 7 sites I always spend time in the content view. That is the one at admin/content. I usually install the views bulk operation module so I get these cool new views that I can easily tweak.
