Prerequisites:

We'll be doing some git-retrieval, meaning we need git installed. Being a sysadmin by trade, I'm naturally lazy, so I'm happy to just pull the git package from EPEL.

In a recent discovery credited to Aaron Stewart here at WorkHabit, it was found that there is an issue converting the cache_router and / or semaphore tables from MyISAM to InnoDB on a Pressflow database.

Over the course of our search for new developers for WorkHabit, I've often gotten a letter or message from Drupal Zealots large and small -- Drupal developers that were born and indoctrinated into the community and believe it's the best thing since sliced bread.

Drupal as a framework doesn't always lend itself well to detailed specifications — and many projects try very hard to do them to "contain risk" and get "a clear and exact" deliverable.

The agile approach is one a lot of people are becoming familiar with.

We've been getting reports of intermittent issues with transcoding on our CDN2 service.

After digging around for a while, we've found an issue where messages are not getting delivered through Amazon SQS to our transcode nodes.

Like so many of us out there, I took the plunge last week and installed Snow Leopard. It purported many advancements, such as a completely rewritten finder and many other apps that take advantage of a better threading model and full 64 bit support.

During one of our recent projects, we ran into the classic deadlock between having non-blocking database updates with the ability to perform fulltext searches against our MySQL database.

Whenever a group of us WorkHabit folks are sitting around the virtual watercooler reviewing upcoming projects, one of the first questions we need to answer is about the quality of the code we're starting with.

The big question we always want to know is this: Is core hacked? And how badly?

After doing this manually several times, I decided to cut to the chase and write a script for it.

The bash script to do this is at the bottom of this post. Just save it as iscorehacked.sh, mark it executable, and have at it.

Sometimes an afterthought, sometimes the only good-looking page on a site: registration pages are the heart and soul of user participation.

I've taken a couple of days off to watch the outcome of the Cloud Expo, CloudCamp, and especially, the CCIF meetings. After three days, this posting is my response to everything I learned, and what I think next steps are. I'd like to have an open dialogue about it: but let's get moving.

Inspired by an experience merging a rather large branch into trunk on a client project (which went surprisingly well, actually), as well as the now-famous Languages: Shooting Yourself in the Foot we present to you a rather comical view of the developer's best and worst friend: The revision control system.

I combed through the Issue queue for Drupal 6 yesterday and have provided a bunch of fixes and updates. I pushed them all into the Dev branch, which seen here, http://drupal.org/node/409912 .

A recent discussion on CloudForum pertains to the nature of what interoperable cloud computing platform might be. It's been a real debate in the community for long time about what and inter operable cloud API actually looks like.

Here's an interesting problem. Through the dot com era (and slightly before), the hosting market was driven to ravenous acquisitions of companies based on the value of their customers.

Over the past few months I have been working on a project to release at Drupalcon DC.

We've had a great response to [CDN2, our video platform for Drupal](http://www.workhabit.com/products/cdn2). The number one request so far was to make a Drupal 6 compatible version.
