Last night’s Atlanta Drupal Coffee Club had an impressive turnout and excellent conversations across a range of topics. We try to keep the format for the coffee clubs as an opportunity to be more “hands on” with Drupal and get to work on real world drupal problems. Whether resolving the issues at the meeting or putting people in touch with other experts in the community who are willing to help out, our goal is pointing people in the right direction and hopefully finding a solution for the problem.

I knew the moment my laptop didn't wake from sleep mode something was amiss. Having retired to my office safe haven for the evening I just wanted to wrap up a few items, log my time and call it a night - the basic end to any Drupal developer's day. My Macbook, however, had other plans.

It was the quintessential nightmare for those of use who live on our computers, a dream we often visualize as worse-case situations but often do nothing to lessen the pain of actualities: a complete computer crash with limited hope of a reboot. But despite the Macabre vibe usually surrounding such thoughts, it's something that doesn't always have to be the ultimate disaster.
