What was it Dries said at Drupalcon? Top two "most difficult things" for both novice and expert Drupal users were 1. finding skilled Drupal designers and 2. finding skilled Drupal developers. We have noticed that as our company grows, we are running into similar issues. Especially #2 - finding skilled Drupal developers has been difficult - in the Oklahoma web industry, Drupal isn't a common platform.

Well, it's about time! I finally got a new version of Imagefield_gallery available for the masses today. I'm not the best with CVS yet (though I'm getting better) so it took a bit of work and some well placed tutoring from Addison Berry and others in the community.

Well I've been back from Drupalcon Szeged for a few days now, although I'm still experiencing a bit of jet lag (asleep by 10pm awake by 7am) which actually isn't all that bad... might try to keep the schedule.

I'll touch on just a few that we found while we were there this time.
