Backend Talent Needed ASAP

Hi Oly/Seattle and Chicago Drupal folks. I am posting this in the hopes that someone local has a bit of time and the skill to assist us.

We have a project for a major NFL fan site that has a very tight timeline and we could really use another pair of hands on the backend API integration pieces.

We have a lead developer and would very much like to add another to supplement and meet the deadline of July 24.

Please email cmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com to discuss rate and availability. Thanks!

Ride sharing at TCDC

I'm wondering if anyone else is flying in/out Wednesday/Sunday and would be interested in sharing a ride? I suppose I'll need to get a cab unless someone already has transport at that time and room for me. :)

On Wednesday, I arrive at the airport at 4pm and will be going to the Millennium Hotel.
On Sunday, I will be leaving from the sprints and need to be there in time to take off at 4PM so I suppose I need to leave about 1?

Resetting the administrator password?!?

Hello Drupal TC,

I have a client who has a Drupal 7 site hosted with Go Daddy, he has access to the Admin user 1 and somehow deleted it. The kicker is he didn't back up the site and the reset password no longer works.
(Trust me, I know this is not ideal!)

I've tried reading through the community documentation and worked on a few step by step solutions, but I'm stuck. I can't seem to get it back. https://www.drupal.org/node/1023428

Anyone have any suggestions or documentation that works and/or I would be happy to hire local tech support to help me fix this issue.

Thank you,

Moderating Content with Revisioning Module - Follow Up

Hey Guys -

I wanted to let you all know that I went back and carefully reviewed my settings for the revisioning module in order to get the published content viewable to anonymous users.

I updated my slides to reflect the correct settings. (Yes, I know we didn't look at slides - I didn't feel like making people dizzy by switching screens around too much.)

Pantheon acquires NodeSquirrel

So that's great and all, but -

will there still be free pizza (and ostensibly some "coding") every 3rd Thursday??? The email announcement from Pantheon mysteriously left that crucial bit of information out...

:)

Seriously, congrats to all involved!
