    Our monkeys have tricks and tips instead of ticks and fleas!

    Hi there!

    How’s your jungle today? Our’s is full of too much coffee, multiple projects, and conflicting deadlines. Oh, and did we mention our nests need cleaning, our kids won’t get off our backs, the monkey chief is in a mood, and our significant others forgot to do their share of the household chores, again?  

    Some days it makes you want to screech in frustration.

    When looking for an adaptable, secure, and powerful CMS, why should you choose Drupal? Because you want these things of course! (and there is more...so much more...)

    The drupal admin menu module is something I use everyday. Recently, I ran into a problem with it.

    I needed to give some users access to some specific menu items, however, no matter what I did, that particular user role could not see the menu items. It only displayed an empty admin menu at the top.

    After looking around for sources on Drupal vs ASP.NET it became clear there is a lot of tension regarding which is the superior platform. So, to avoid creating even more, I am just going to lay out the facts and let you decide that Drupal is the better platform.

    Okay maybe I'm wrong - it really depends on your company’s goals - so let's start by looking at what major websites are using for their platforms.

    There is one thing that is universal in all jobs. Communication. It doesn’t matter what your profession is when it comes to the importance of everyone understanding what the heck is going on . This is something I feel I have always been good at, and great communication has definitely helped my transition into the www.holycrapihavenoideawhatyoujustsaidworld.

    I am absolutely shocked that I have been a “noob” now for 9 months! I find myself taking things for granted that would have knocked my brain cells loose back in November. For example, I somehow managed to wipe my laptop clean of all of my “techie tools” that I use everyday for project management (at least I brought my laptop to work...SCORE!) I don’t know how or why the slate was wiped clean, but it was. Instead of the pure panic that I would have experienced so many months ago, I calmly, and logically, started restoring all of my accesses...ALL ON MY OWN. Collective GASP!

    Today’s web design is pretty exciting, and at the same time pretty demanding on its architects. With the desire for device agnostic interfaces and web sites, designers, more than ever, need to focus on function over form.

    The Chair

    I recall a project in college where we were tasked with designing a chair. We could build it out of any material, make it any shape, etc. One of the only requirements was that it had to be usable (if you couldn’t sit on it, it was a failure), and it had to be able to support the weight of a 300 pound person.
