Right after I got my new appartment in Munich, I'm going to head off to Paris for DrupalCon. I'll be getting there a few days early to visit the city and meet with a few people, so let me know if you'll be around and want to pre-drupalize. I won't be presenting this time, so I'll have more time for everything else!
There are a lot of options when moving from Subversion to a next-generation Version Control System, but Bazaar's ability to interact with a subversion repository can make the transition easy and painless. While it is possible to use the bzr command in a subversion checkout or use it to connect to a subversion repository, you sometimes want to completely move to Bazaar and stop using subversion at all. Here's how to do it.

If you have some friends with a Last.FM account, head over to http://perfectfestival.com, where you can generate the homepage for a fictive music festival where all their favorite bands are playing!

We usually teach kids the alphabet by having them remember common words that start with each letter: A is for Apple, B is for Balloon, C is for Crayon... but what if we wanted to update our notion of "common word" with, let's say, the autocomplete feature of Google search? Here's what we get:
