On a recent project we had a situation where the client wished to migrate over all the avatars currently in use by their community. Upon investigate we found out that the folder contained over 4GB worth of data. The data was not segmented in such a way that we could identify the images we needed simply from the file structure. Of these images were only needed to obtain approximately 100MB worth, and the database schema told us which ones we needed.

Back in January I wrote about using Drupal as a tool to create decentralized online advocacy campaigns and the upcoming release of the Activism module. We
The Activism module is a framework which we hope will standardize the way in which online advocacy tools are built and deployed with Drupal based websites. The module comes packaged with three modules out of the box:
The CMS Expo Learning and Business conference is coming up this week in Evanston, Illinois. This event is going to be interesting, in part because I will be presenting (more on that below), but also because the session track really covers a lot of bases.
I would like to welcome a few new members to Team Trellon as permanent additions to our development unit.
We are fortunate enough to be adding not one, but two people named Alan in a single month. That is probably not a record, but it is nice to only have to learn one name.

I attended COSSFEST 2009 one week ago. Calgary as it turns out has an active opensource community for its size and the current president of KDE lives there!! I was the only person there who is actively involved in the Drupal community and earning a living from Drupal. However may of the developers were using Drupal in one way or another so I felt at home.
There are days when it seems like my job is Head of HR instead of Chief Internet Strategist. Trellon is hiring developers and project managers again. Check out our jobs page to see the open positions. If you have previously applied with us, please feel free to apply again.
There are a few reasons why we are hiring you may want to know about.
The adoption of CiviCRM in the past couple of years has boomed, and as of late we have taken on some rather large implementations of the CRM system for advocacy and international development organizations. The CiviCRM community has been lacking local user groups to support developers, administrators and persons interested in learning more about the platform. In response to this need, we have decided to start the first Washington DC CiviCRM Meetup group.
The Berkeley Drupal User Group's March meeting was a week and a half ago, but I'm still thinking about it, and now, in the "better late than never" spirit, I'm writing about it.
