    So I have recently discovered that I LOVE Google docs. Once I figured out how to navigate through the system, which has taken me basically six months (sigh), I realized how handy it is to have all of this documentation to reference. I really enjoy the “sharing” feature of Google docs as well which is something I never thought I would say!

    What a fantastic start to my day today. Being the resident newbie, I take a lot of flack from the boys in the office (did I mention that I am the only female? I drink a lot more now, just saying). Typically, when the monkey men mock me (go alliteration!), I go into tone deaf mode, but not this morning. I miiiiight have come to work WITHOUT my laptop. This tiny oopsy, small hiccup if you will, sent the boys into full “ape” mode. You would think that I came to work without an arm, leg or my floatie or something. Sigh.

    Site migrations are a lot like moving into a new house; it’s never easy and can be frustrating to say the least. They both require lots of planning and a little bit of patience. Here are a few things to consider to make your move easier.

    I am completely covered in a “tech” rash since we last communicated. No matter how much I scratch and apply cream, I simply cannot stop the itch. I think I may be allergic to the lingo that is still flying around the office, and perhaps my chair... or maybe just sitting? What a strange thing to do all day. Maybe I should just recline on my floatie.

    First days with your Drupal site

    Congratulations! You finally launched your Drupal site :) I am sure that is a huge relief.. go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back. But, don't take too long because you still have some work ahead of you.

    Why is that?

    Well you need to know how to use the darn thing!

    Getting started

    I hate making assumptions so we are going to start out with the basics. In order to administer the Drupal site you are going to need to be logged in. Assuming you have a standard installation you may see something like this

    Anyone who knows me well, understands that I have a large, paranoia style fear of water. Lakes, rivers, oceans, pools and waterfalls just to name a few. The first day I walked through the doors of Cheeky Monkey, I realized one very real, very terrifying fact. I was about to dive head first into the biggest pool I had ever encountered. The tech pool. And I didn’t even have a floatie.

    A basic study of the world’s most accepted color.

    The color blue, one of the 3 additive primary colors (Red, Green, Blue - or known as RGB) and one of the 3 subtractive primaries (Red, Yellow, Blue - or also known as RYB in the painting world) is the world’s most well accepted color. This really isn’t surprising, remember the last time you asked someone what their favorite color was? If it wasn’t blue - it was probably in their top 3. In contrast to this colors like yellow are typically love it or hate it.

    Welcome to the monkey weekly. This week there was a ton of Drupal stuff happening. Did you have a chance to take a look at our monkey blog?

    The first place we’d like you to check out is all of the new monkeys that have come on board. You can do this by clicking here. Say hello to Justin, Patrick, and Treena. So far they’ve all survived working for Cheeky Monkey Media and we think they like it.

    The parallax effect in simple terms is when something in the foreground appears to be moving faster than objects in the distance. One of the earliest uses of this effect for entertainment are the older 2D video games that had objects in the foreground moving at different rates than those of the background, producing the illusion of depth.
