Share Office Space?

Hey all,
Recently, I've been thinking of rounding up a few full time Drupal developers/designers to get some office space (getting tired of working at home). If you're interested in talking about sharing office space in the NW Detroit 'burbs (Novi, Milford, etc) please let me know.

Thanks!

Creating link with user name given uid

This must be easy, but I've spent much time with no joy. Feeling thick headed.

Got a table defined like this:

<?php
  $schema
['learningexercise_user_solutions'] = array(
   
'description' => t('Stores user\'s solutions.'),
   
'fields' => array(
     
'nid' => array(
       
'type' => 'int',
...      ),
     
'vid' => array(
       
'type' => 'int',
...      ),
     
'uid' => array(
       
'type' => 'int',
...      ),

East side and West Side Meetups

Thanks for putting the east side (Oakland U) meetup together. In the past we've met over on the east side as well (Rochester), but for many of us West-siders it was WAY to far to drive (Ann Arbor group is closer to me than even Troy). So, just FYI, I think we'll be trying to have some meetings over on the West side as well to accommodate those of us over here.
