At the Ref Desk (4/15/18): File under 'Learn Something New Everyday': Wanna print more than one page (say, 2, 4, 9, etc.) on the same side of the paper? That's what the option "Multiple" is for after typing Ctrl-P. (Thanks to the student who figured this out after he asked me and I told him I didn't know.) [more...]

Drupal Camp Chicago: Wow!

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 10/24/08 (3:57pm)

Hoo baby, they got a big crowd for the Drupal Camp Chicago. Easily over 100 attendees!

We had so many people at the Library BoF -- most of whom weren't librarians -- that I had to shift into "presentation" mode -- with a wonderful assist from PLA Webmaster Doug Dawson, Brian Smith from Palsnet.info, a librarian from Brookfield Public and the owner of a development shop creating a website for one of the regional library organizations in Washington State.

If I missed anyone, please forgive me. We really could have gone on for another hour.

They were taping the session plus a couple of people had cameras so hopefully I'll have some photos or clips in a little bit.

In any case, hats off to Kyle and Matt and the rest of the CDMUG.org crowd. What a great event.

Re: Leo - Enjoyed meeting you

Hi Brian,

Thanks for helping out -- if ever so briefly.

Alas, Saturday I had to work.

In any case, I was really impressed by your work and look forward to seeing you again!
