  • Quoting IT: Corporate Blogging

    "If you think you need filtering technologies to be sure your employees aren't damaging your reputation, that's a management problem, not a technology one.  If employees can't be trusted, technology is the least of your problems." -Tim Bray, Director of Web technologies at Sun Microsystems Inc., "Keeping Secrets in a WikiBlogTubeSpace World", ComputerWorld, March 19, 2007

  • Wall Street discovers content management systems

    This may surprise regular visitors to my site, but I'm an avid reader of the Wall Street Journal.   Why is it surprising for some that I read the WSJ?  Well, probably because after all the links and excerpts to stories I have provided from CMS Report, this is the very first time I have ever mentioned an article from the WSJ in one of my blog posts.  The sad truth is that about every article found at can only be fully read if you are a subscriber of the online newspaper.  I have wanted…

  • cPanel 11: Newest version of the control panel coming soon

    When I originally started hosting my own sites on a server (VPS/VDS), I opted for the easy way to manage those sites by using an online control panel. I originally started with Plesk but eventually moved to cPanel. cPanel at the time seemed to be the control panel everyone was talking about. However, I quickly found that although I liked cPanel it seemed to be dated by the fact that its primary web server support was for Apache 1.x. Support for Apache 2.x was promised in the next version of…

  • Thunderbird 2.0

    Mozilla's flagship e-mail client, Thunderbird, is now available under version 2.0. I've been running the Thunderbird 2.0 nightly development versions for almost six months without any problems. I expect Thunderbird users will have little problem with upgrading from version 1.5 to version 2.0. Straight from the release notes I've listed at the bottom of this post are the new features users will find in Thunderbird 2. None of the new features are earth shattering for e-mail clients but I do…

  • A Drupal book for the Drupal Developer Wannabe

    What seems like a very long time since I first heard about and ordered the new Drupal book, Pro Drupal Development, it finally arrived at my doorstep. So far, I have only read Chapter 1, "How Drupal Works", and glanced at the remaining pages of the book but I'm very impressed. The book is written in a very easy, well organized, and informative writing style. This book is perfect for people like me and most of you, the Drupal Developer Wannabe. I'm no dummy and have written Web pages since…

  • - A Drupal site

    For some time I have wanted to promote and write about a new Drupal site that went online recently.  The site carries a similar mission I've tried to have with my own sites where those from competing projects, products, and organizations can come together for discussion.  In this case, a site with the desire to build a "place for those of us interested in open source solutions and community issues".  The site is   What makes this Drupal site interesting is that one of…

  • Virtually impressed with Microsoft

    I usually spend my weekends writing a few drafts for articles that I'm going to post here at CMS Report.  The idea is that I'm not competing with the hectic pace I usually find myself in during the weekdays.  Well, I found myself distracted from the usual writing endeavor for two reasons: 1) Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 and 2) the snow finally melting leaving a nice warm weekend to be outside.  Needless to say, not much time was spent with the computer.  However, let's talk about Microsoft and something they finally did right
