Calendar Module relaunched as the Diary Module

After releasing the Calendar module for SilverStripe, we (me and the team at SilverStripe) discovered that naming the module as "Calendar Module" creates some naming conflicts, with another module which is coded by someone else.

So as to avoid the conflicts my module is released as the Diary Module, and if you click on the name you will be able to go to the official SilverStripe page of the module where you will be able to learn a lot about it. And I am really impressed that the module is listed under the supported list (http://www.silverstripe.org/modules).

I will be talking to my partners at whynotonline.com and will arrange a new demo site where you will have a nice URL, most probably http://open.whynotonline.com/ will be that ;)

First release of the Twitter module for SilverStripe

Dear all,

You might remember I wrote something about a new addition to the SilverStripe Open Source CMS called the Twitter Module. If you have a bad memory or you didnt see my previous post here is the link to that "Have you tried to merge your twitter account with your SilverStripe website".

Okay here we go, here is the first release of the module where you can have it installed it with your SilverStripe website.

To download it click here.

I'd love to hear your views about the module, and if you have anything in your mind just post your comments here.
The software is free, released under the Free BSD you can make use of it with out any hesitation.

Have some nice experience with this new addition. To let you know about some stuff about the module it ships with some widgets, where you can have your twitter details in many pages. Also still you can have only one TwitterPage set up on your website. You can have many, but the widgets will not work as you need, I will be fixing this soon, and would like to hear how you need it on a next release. Also I will be posting the codes to the SilverStripe.org so you will be able to download it from there too.

Thanks, I am going to have a beer today evening to celebrate the release, as this is something I was looking forward for sometime ;)

What the hell has happened to this blog?

Hey you might think so, yes I blacked out my blog, just to express my anger towards the grotesque attack to the Sri Lanka Cricket Team, at Pakistan. It was ruined as I did black out it, and now I have just replaced the blog's layout as I didnt want to make this hard to read ;).


What I feel is this is done by some terrorists, and the attack means that every terrorist organization hates our country. So, there are somethings to understand anyway, as a whole all the terrorists are just in the same bunch. And this is a time, that our military forceses are kicking the asses of the LTTE (terrorists again). So I believe that no other terrorist, can stand this out. This is well expressed on this attack where terrorists, show their grotesque nudity to the whole world.

I as an innocent Sri Lankan citizen, pray for gods, that our cricketers will be in good health soon, and wish to see them on the playgrounds with their kicking performances.

Also I am somewhat keen to see what the media's such as CNN, BBC will act on this.
