As a brief note to self, when you want to use the Drupal SMTP module with a Gmail SMTP server, such as for a Drupal contact form, the process goes something like this:
This website runs on Drupal, and after the discontinued their anti-spam service (named Mollom), I had to disable the contact form here. The easiest way to contact me right now is at my Twitter account.

As I finish editing this book in January, 2014, it’s a busy time. In addition to releasing this book, I just finished writing a 700+ page computer programming book for O’Reilly named Scala Cookbook.
A funny thing about the Scala Cookbook: I wrote it on a whim, as a dare, wondering, “Am I good enough to write this book, on my own?” I doubted myself for a little while, but then overcame my fears and sent an email to the people at O’Reilly. As I’ve said throughout this book, all you are is attitude.
