moving up the Drupal Learning Curve

I've begun to assist with maintaining a couple Drupal modules authored by Jeff Eaton, Drupal rockstar and Lullabot employee. The Insert Block and Insert View modules allow a person to embed a Drupal block and view, respectively, into the body of a page/node. Pretty elegant modules.

Launchy: file system teleportation

Having to traverse file system paths repeatedly (a common task facing web developers) is the virtual equivalent of lugging sacks of groceries up flights of stairs.

The scenario is this: a client emails a file ("Post this PDF on our site."). You choose to save the file and a dialog box opens either in My Documents or the last location you saved a file in this manner - perhaps another client's folder. So you start clicking. Let's go back to C:, then to "Program Files", to "Apache Group", then to "Apache 2" and ... so on ... and finally to "site-documents."
