The new Forms API comes with an
#ahah attribute that lets you specify the trigger event, e.g. a mouse click, the callback URL that will be requested after the event occurred and the ID value of the HTML element where the server response will be displayed. Pretty awesome stuff.

Yesterday, I watched the Theme Developer Screencast where Moshe Weitzman guides us on how to use the Theme Developer module and what can be done with it. Moshe Weitzman, Jeff Robbins, and Joon Park did nothing less than creating the Firebug for Drupal theming, wow!
Inspired by Dries Buytaert's regular announcements of new Drupal sites, I did some (re)search on which news sites, universities, organizations, companies, musicians, celebrities, communities, software projects, etc. are using Drupal for their websites. The result is the following list of sites, that impressed me somehow. Of course the list is far from complete, so feel free to post Drupal sites you like in the comments.
Bands, Musicians and Celebrities
- Avril Lavigne
- Jennifer Lopez | The Official Jennifer Lopez Site
- Britney Spears | Blackout Magazine - Britney.Com - Jive Records
- Tori Amos Home | The Official Tori Amos Site
- Grateful Dead | Official Site of the Grateful Dead
- Ozzy Osbourne Home | The Official Ozzy Osbourne Site
- Crosby, Stills and Nash
Yesterday I spent about two hours looking for a bug, that prevented videos from being uploaded to a Drupal site using Drupal's built in
