Change the date of a node, using the database

Change the date of a node, using the database. XYZ represents the node ID (NID)

cd /vagrant
drush sql-cli
update node set changed = 1450958544 where nid = XYZ;
update node set changed = 1451563344 where nid = XYZ;

This example sets the time for 2 nodes, the first to 47 weeks ahead and the second update line sets the timestamp 50 weeks ahead of todays date, 1/28/2015

Add a replacement pattern token for a Views field rewrite results

How to programmatically rename a content type (change node type machine name)

Set old_type if you want to programmatically update a node type / machine name.

(This is not about changing the type of a node, but changing what type is called on the machine-info level.)

$type->old_type is what node_type_save() checks for when updating a node type, if it's not set it will create a new node type even if orig_type is set to an existing bundle. So really all you need to do right before saving a modified content type is set the old_type to the orig_type, such as:

Configure Memcache on a Drupal site

This has to be done for each site. This is after installing Memcache on your server.

Remove the delete icon from Tomboy notes' toolbar

I think it used to be possible, fairly certain i had removed it.

Not surprised that Gnome help doesn't have how to remove or add toolbar buttons or otherwise customize the icons on notes.

But i am surprised that does not say anywhere how to get involved at all, how to contribute, nor how to ask for help or support.

MySQL Query to Get Quick Overview of Nodes by Content Type

Exporting views to files to be managed by version control: Drupal 7

The trick to somewhat Drupal 8-esque configuration management in Drupal 7, when it comes to Views, is to make your view defined in the user interface to be defined by a module instead. This is done with hook_views_default_views().

From Michelle Lauer's Views chapter in the Definitive Guide to Drupal 7:
