Okay, I've pretty much lost my mind at this point. This paper is simply killing me. In order to keep myself from going completely insane, I've been taking 15 minute breaks between writing my paper and have somehow managed to get Drupal working.
I've grown tired of Blosxom, so I was looking for a change. Travis has long been a fan of Drupal, but I was previously hesitant because I'm not a big fan of PHP applications in general. I generally consider PHP to be a good prototyping language, but I don't really care for how applications end up looking in the long run—that's a whole other blog, so I'll stop there.
At this point, I like it so much, I'm thinking of recommending it for use on our church site. I still need to figure out how that would look, but I think it's doable.
