Hey who did the slide show on your homepage? It's one of the better slide shows I've seen on a Drupal site. Is it just using JQuery cycle? Does it use a drupal module so you can load it from the back end?
That was done in-house ... it doesn't use a dedicated module, but it does use jquery cycle. Thanks for the note! :)
Just curious, Matt. I sent in my resume last week and followed up on Friday with an e-mail just to make sure the EduCause had gotten it. I have not gotten a response to either e-mail. Is jobs@educause.edu the correct address?
Hello Matt,

Is this position still open?

Thank you,
Christine
