  • Open Source Elgg opens the door wider

    The project managing Elgg, an open source networking platform, announced a couple days ago that the software is "now more open than ever".  The project will be opening "the development process, codebase, direction and software roadmap to the community". More recently, expected changes at elgg.org were starting to take place with expectations of discussions taking place throughout the week. This will mean structure both in tools to better support community led development of the software but…

  • Croatian community site converts from e107 to Joomla

    I found this on one of the Joomla blogs, Croatian community site converts from e107. The biggest Croatian community site outside of Croatia converts to Joomla. Croworld.ca has been around for 3 years, although just recently went through a e107 -> joomla conversion. We support the Croatian community outside of Croatia by trying to keep everyone in tune with what is going on in the community. http://www.croworld.ca So why am I posting this here at my site?  Could it be that I want to rub…

  • Wordpress 2.3.1 Coming Soon

    A release candidate is out for Wordpress 2.3.1.  It seems like only yesterday that I installed Wordpress 2.3.  These type of updates for bug fixes are typical and, in my opinion, actually a good things to see.  Wordpress 2.3.1 will be fixing over twenty bugs. Some of the notable fixes are: Tagging support for Windows Live Writer A login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than their WordPress Address is fixed Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag…

  • CMSReport.com's server performing well

    Last weekend, both Linux Today and Linux.com provided links and excerpts to an article I posted here at CMS Report.  You can see some of the stats on my newly quantified site at quantcast.com.  While those managing large sites shouldn't be too impressed with those numbers, I'm personally pleased with the current level of traffic this little 'ol site of mine is seeing.  I'm not only "Wowed" with the number of people visiting my site to read the posts, but I'm also grateful for the opportunity to…

  • Tech Support Catches Thief

    This story from InfoWorld shows that crime doesn't pay. After a thief stole a printer for making driver's licenses, his call to the manufacturer's tech support line requesting driver software lead to his arrest. The story then goes on to say that although the thief had stolen the computer connected to the printer, the computer "was locked with a key".  I wonder if that was a key for a physical lock on the case which prevented the computer to boot up or an authentication key…

  • Is Joomla! 1.5 RC3 really a release candidate?

    I was really surprised not only find out that Joomla! 1.5 is going through a third release candidate, but will likely be followed with more release candidates.  In most projects, the release candidate is a nearly-done final product where the only thing left is to make sure all the i's are dotted and all the t's are crossed.  Not so with Joomla! 1.5.Johan Janssens's writes in his post, Is Joomla! 1.5 RC3 really a release candidate?:In the last two weeks after the release of RC3 I have seen this…

  • The Generation Gap Challenges IT Managers

    Another Generation Y (Generation Next) in the workforce has been written.  This time the article is at Infoworld and titled, The Generation Gap Challenges IT Managers. The gap is widening, with more workers stacked at both ends of the age spectrum. There are approximately 80 million Baby Boomers, those born roughly between the years of 1946 and 1964, and 70 million in Generation Y, born 1978 through the present, but only 60 million in the middle in Generation X, those born 1965 to 1977. …

  • Voting for Packt's CMS Award ends October 26, 2007

    There is only one week left to vote for the CMS finalists in Packt Publishing's Open Source Content Management System Award.  If you haven't voted for what you think is the best open source CMS, I would encourage you to vote.  In my opinion, you should vote even in those categories where your favorite CMS may not have made it through the public nomination process.  Remember, not everyone is that sold on open source content management systems.  In other words this award, and those like it, is a…

  • I have lost my Wow

    Last week, I mentioned that Mozilla is planning to give the Firefox browser a makeover.  Alex Faaborg had mentioned that they plan to integrate the look of Firefox with Microsoft's Windows Vista and Apple's Mac OS X.  The problem was Alex had failed to mention anything about the Linux operating system.  Linux users, of course, then replied by comment that they were unhappy that there was no mention of Linux in the post. I even replied with my own poorly written comment (#33) that…
