How to display content from other website using your own simple Drupal 7 module

From time to time I went with Drupal into situations where I need to display a block populated with content coming from another website. Parsing other website’s RSS or using the Aggregator module is not always possible nor comfortable.  So own custom module could be a solution. Here is how I did this job.

Everyone is welcome to post his offer/request for an advertising or ad space. People could earn some points and we are planning some bonus system for this points.

My Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 upgrade experience

As Drupal 6 is the reality for a few months already and its main contributed modules are ready for the 6 version, I decided to upgrade my main websites to the Drupal 6. Here is my experience. My biggest website is Czech www.maxiorel.cz with its 2000 visitors per day. It has an English clone running at www.maxiorel.com. As the Maxiorel.com is a smaller, I chose it as the first to migrate. I already migrated some websites like www.anastacia.cz and running some websites (www.backuphowto.info and www.photohowto.info) from their beginning. But the Maxiorel.com should be my first bigger Drupal 6 migration.
