Node.js, MongoDB, Symfony Testers Needed

I've been working with Marc and Salim with Webenabled and they have offered to provide us a free-of-charge VPS for Node, Mongo and Symfony testing.

We get to help out a great company that has been a sponsor of our past Drupalcamps and they get real-world testing of some new services they are trying to implement.

If anyone would like to join in, contact me. We would like to get at least twenty or so people together to work on it.

(They might even pitch in some free hosting for our efforts!)

IE 8 - 9 making me pull my hair out

you have heard the story before site works great in Chrome / Firefox / android phone / Kindle Fire and even IE 7 (changing mode in IE9 developer tools) but is broken in IE 8 and 9.

I have tried everything I can think of but the row heights just don't work right.

http://pookieschmookie.com/ right on the front page.

I took over the site mostly themed and no one had ever tried testing with IE so you can't hurt my feelings if you see something dumb.

PS Murillo is my dog ;-)

you can contact me privately at joemoraca @ gmail.com

Amazon Cloudformation and Commons Presentation

Thanks for a great event this year.

Some attendees were asking if the slides from my Drupal Government Day presentation were available, so here they are:

https://one.ubuntu.com/files/shareoffer/5dfe3e10-0053-4bfa-ae0c-8c705ff3fe31/

I guess with Ubuntu One, you can only share with one person.

I just sent the slides over to Drupal4gov, so they should be posted there soon.

I also copied them here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B4Yr8yX06d9-cTh0UlhBYTlPdHc

There is a keynote, powerpoint, .pdf, and zip file containing html with the slides.

Drupal of Miami Workshops

This week we will going over Jay Callicott's Top 50 Drupal 7 Modules.

What Jay has done is trimmed his list down to the top 50-ish modules that he is most likely to use on any given project. Most of these modules he has used on real projects, many of them have been carried over from Drupal 6. Several of these are new Drupal 7 modules that didn’t exist in Drupal 6 and some others are Drupal 7 replacements for Drupal 6 modules.

I hope that you will come and join us for the fun.
