Help with a D6 site.

I was approached by someone who has a D6 site and it started throwing errors to the front page. I am unsure of the state of it and my first thought is to make sure its all updated as much as possible. The problem is they are unsure of the Admin login. Is there a way to change the admin password? I do have direct access to the code base and the database. Thank you for your assistance.

Best out-of-the-box theme and/or carousel for Drupal 8?

I am hoping to assist our UW Madison group with updating microscopy.wisc.edu and also loci.wisc.edu with a new theme. We use Drupal6 and are in the process of trying out migrations with Drupal7 and Drupal8 now. I really like the carousel on the Yale School of Management's website because it is integrated with the kind of web content I create daily: news, profiles, and speaker events so that when I would update something in the site it would appear on the front in a clean way. http://som.yale.edu/

Automating your workflow & Drupal Camp Meeting

Start: 
2015-07-15 12:15 - 14:00 America/Chicago
Event type: 
User group meeting

Hi everyone,

I've recently used Grunt (http://gruntjs.com/) to help automate my theming and it is slick. A quick demo of how you can use it to help speed up your development workflow. I'll show my workflow, which can be improved, and will show how grunt can be used with other tools (SMACSS, BEM, SCSS, livereload, KSS-Node, jshint, uglify, etc.).

connecting Entity

Looking for some guidance.
The basic setup for what I want to do is...

User
Group
Fund_Num

So, I have users who can belong to multiple groups.
I have groups that can contain multiple fund numbers.

I would like to place users in groups and then add fund numbers to groups
So, when a user is selected, he can only select the fund numbers to which groups he is in.

Trying to figure out a way to get this to work without writing actual code.

I have been trying different scenarios. such as
1) - creating users with new entity reference field
