I need to pick up some more of that too.  Lately, I've been experimenting with plantains and sweet potatoes for my pancakes, but I miss those nut flours.

When +MariaDB says that it is a drop in replacement, they're not kidding.  New Mac from my new job.  I copy olddrive/usr/local/mysql/data to /newdrive/usr/local/mariadb/data , restart mariadb and open liya, the recommended DBMS and all of my db's and tables are there. No hoops, no need to edit files or run lengthy dumps and imports, pure magic.

Got my funny bone
Your Google search history is probably littered with typos, questionable queries, embarrassing visits to malware-infected websites, porn, Facebook, porn, Facebook, basic math questions a 6-year-old would know, juvenile jokes and so forth. It's not a proud place to be. But what if in order to make all those searches you do on Google, you had to talk to a real life person? Can you imagine if Google was just some guy in an office answering all of yo...

 It kinda feels dirty to stick the documentation for my Vagrant project into Sharepoint.

OMG Sharepoint is so dirty. And slow. And...bad evil terrible. We use it for project management at Acxiom, and it is the bane of getting anything done.

Get off the phone: Helping users through better UX and tools

Marek Sotak talks about giving your clients and site visitors the help they need without sacrificing all your productive time.

---
jam's Drupal Camp, December 2013 edition - I can't get enough Drupal Camps and I wanted to share some of my favourite sessions and presenters from the Drupal (and open source and business) community with you at regular jam's Drupal Camp events online!

---
Does this ever happen to you? You hand over a site that you have just built to your client and then the phone starts ringing…

You: Hello, how can I help you?
...
Customer: I can't login to my site.
You: Are you sure you used the right password? ...
or
Customer: How do I add an article again?
You: Are you logged in in the admin interface? ...
or
Customer: The picture I just uploaded looks wrong.
You: What site are you on? Which content type are you editing? Is this for a block? Are you looking at a view or the node?
Customer: um ...

Marek Sotak, founder of Inline Manual [LINK: https://inlinemanual.com/] and longtime Drupal developer faced these situations regularly while building client sites and one day decided enough was enough. He started looking for solutions and interviewed many companies and individuals who build websites.

The feedback and insight he gained into how others handle helping clients and end-users after their projects have launched was valuable. Many have tried screencasts, making manuals filled with screenshots, and other options, but none of them had any proven solution or consistent processes in place. Given the lack of reliable or measurable success, most don't offer documentation at all anymore. Instead, they have given up and simply provide their phone number to their clients. This comes at the cost of being on the phone a lot, and losing productive time when they could be working on their next project.

In this session, we will look at
- the results of Marek's research and experience looking for solutions
- how small UX changes can change user perception and behaviour
-what tools there are that can help make our clients and ourselves more productive

  • Aristotle Inc.
    Sr. Web Developer/DevOps, 2010 - 2013
    As team lead I focus the energy and passion of the Open Source development team into creating amazing web applications to the exacting standards of Aristotle. In a collaborative environment I endeavour to sharpen our workflows and understanding of Drupal and Wordpress so that we deliver great results with a budget in mind. Rather than assuming a role as hardline taskmaster I feel that the team members have as much to teach me as I do them. I've learned much through working with them as they have with me at the helm. In my time as lead - with the help of other great minds - I have instituted a work flow that utilises git, rsync, drush and bash. This helps to ensure that we have stellar uptime history as well as enabling multiple team members to collaborate on the same project without stepping all over each other. In a development role, I created a web application that uses Instagram to crowdsource images for media campaigns for big names such as Atlantic City, Elvis and Gulf Shores. This application was a labor of love and at times didn't seem like work. Interacting with third party web-services is something I get excited about. There is so much information out there that excites and inspires end users and I want to tinker with it all. Creating great interfaces to interact with that data is one of the most exciting things about the internet! In addition to creating those great apps, I manage the Linux web servers, MYSQL databases and BSD name-servers in an ESXi Virtual Machine environment fulfilling a systems administration role. At DrupalCon Denver I discovered the discipline/focus/culture known as DevOps. I have since voraciously absorbed as much knowledge as I can find.
