The previous project stack has already covered OS, Database, Web Server, CMS, Mobile Device; for this new project, let's bring wearables or sensors into the picture.

Mon, 07/08/2013 - 20:30 -- skyred

Today, I received a request that how to let certain users to have the permission to edit all user accounts but not admin users. Drupal has this user permission called "Administer users (Warning: Give to trusted roles only; this permission has security implications.)".
