Anyone using Location Taxonomize module for D7?

I'm using Location module (lastest version) with D7. I need the city field to be associated with a city taxonomy vocab. Not seeing how to do that within Location, and the project page makes reference to some lacking features; not sure whether it is meant to support this or not. (The issue queue has nearly 700 posts, so I won't even bother to ask there.)

Miami (Coral Gables) meetup

I was lucky enough to attend a new Florida Drupal Empire meetup in Coral Gables last week at the Planet Linux Cafe (full details - http://www.meetup.com/Drupal-Miami/events/57984462/). We had a nice turnout of 15 people, including Alfred Smith, the person who put it all together (thanks, Alfred!) A few other "regulars" from the Florida Drupal Empire were also in attendance, but I'll let them speak up in the comments below.

Suggestions, please (2 issues)

Could really use some suggestions - not find solutions within the modules. Maybe overlooking. Preference by saying that I am not a module developer. (And, prefer contrib mods for client best interest as well.)

USE CASE:
Business Directory

FEATURE #1
I want good drill-down filtering of data, so using many exposed filters -- all with multiple value option. Played around with template and CSS solutions, but seemed kludgy and never quite good solution.

Problem: Hideous Views exposed filter block (depth and not-so-user-friendly select open-box, rather than checkboxes).

Orlando Drupal Meetup (Migrate), April 21 1pm

Start: 
2012-04-21 13:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Come learn how to use the Migrate API and a small custom module to import data from just about any system into a Drupal 6 or 7 site. Migrate has been around for a while, but the current branch relies heavily on writing code and making it very easy to run all your migrations from Drush. It also integrates with a ticket tracking system so you can have your client review the migrations.

My project is to connect to a backend system that uses Postgres and try to keep Drupal in sync with it - that will be my example this week.

Some DrupalCon Migrate videos:

Drupal 7 Data Module

So, I'm a Drupal n00b and I'm trying to display some data from an external MySQL database in a View. I found a Module called Data that says it can do what I want, however, there is no documentation and I have NO idea where to begin with it.

Do any of you guys/gals have experience with this module?

I could really appreciate some pointers.

Thank you in advance!!!

Upcoming May Meetup Topic for Tampa?

So, Tampa has it's next meetup coming up on May 3rd. As far as I know, we don't have anyone currently scheduled to present anything. We can always fall back to just general questions and show & tell, which I think can be just as valuable as an actual presentation, but if we want a presentation we should throw out some topic ideas and see if we can't get one of us to speak on it.

I'm not actually sure what I want to know more about at the moment, so I don't have any pressing topic ideas :)

Anyone?

Drupal and accounting

How do you take information out of Drupal sites selling widgets and into an accounting programs like Quickbooks?

Business software like TradePoint360 and NetSuite are commercial packages, which are tightly integrated with accounting . . . yet I never see any mention about Drupal and accounting - none whatsoever but this is the very first question I hear form business owners.

Inaccessible site

Hello everyone. I'm having trouble accessing a site migrated from Webenabled to my localhost. It seems that I lost access to the site following a Windows update. Please see attachment with screen shots for file structure, Drupal control panel, and databases as well as a detailed explanation. I am curious if anyone else has encountered a similar problem and if so, how did you solve it? Thank you.
