Drupal Tip: Drupal slow on WAMP

So, I've been doing a lot of my Drupal development at work on Windows XP. For some reason Drupal was running extremly slow. After searching off and on for a few days, I finally stumbled across the right key words to find this: http://drupal.org/node/348202 Solution: increase realpath_cache_size in php.ini to something larger. I set it to 20M. I might make it bigger, we'll see. But at least Drupal is usable for now. Oh, and I should note that when I am developing on Linux or on my server, Drupal is plenty fast. So this was a problem specific to my WAMP install.

Thanks Drupal Gardens!

Hey! Yet again, DavidReagan.net get's a new look. Drupal Gardens is giving away free beta keys to their Drupal site building service. I signed up for one, and a few days later they were nice enough to send one to me. It's pretty impressive what they've created. They make the creation of a Drupal site practically painless. Go check out this video. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what else they add as time goes by.
