Learning HTML color codes (converting RGB to hexadecimal)

I've been trying to understand how html color codes (hex codes) work and how colors mix so I can experiment with my own color schemes more intuitively. I came across a decent article at sitepronews (Understanding HTML Color Codes) that explained a little bit about the hexadecimal part. It seems intuitve but I learned that the Hex option on the Windows Calculator can help determine the hex values.

Drupal Updated !

I've updated this blog to the latest stable release of Drupal (version 5.1). There are some customizations to my custom-made theme "PuRupal" that I'm still working on but for the most part the move is complete. I really like the new version for a number of reasons.
  • The new themes that come with the core installation are nicer and more flexible.
  • The jquery color picker is very cool. I'm looking forward to seeing what else I can do with this enigmatic javascript library

Teasers added to Google Personalized Pages

Well I must come off as a proponent of Google. I have to admit I like my gmail and I like my personalized page and google reader. They recently added teasers to the google personalized page and I like them too.

Here is a screen shot of one of my feeds on my google personalized page with the teaser opened up. The Allegany and Garrett Countie's Bird Club is a website that I maintain.

Google "Click to Call"

I just discovered Google Maps' "Click to Call" feature while looking for the local UPS facility. You can enter your phone number (which they only use once to connect the call), and your phone will ring. When you pick it up, it is already dialing the number that you are contacting. The call costs you nothing (even for long distance).

Get more information on Click to Call from Google.

IBM Web Design with Drupal

I just listened to the latest Lullabot Podcast. Jeff Robbins interviewed folks from IBM who wrote a series of articles about how they developed a website using Drupal. The articles describe everything from the site planning stages to developing a custom module, theming with CSS and XHTML and major modifications to the code to support a new database (IBM DB2®). See the Lullabot link for more information.
