aka “Shameless Self Promotion”

I built a very simple web site for the artist Edward Bell, using Joomla!, an open source content management system. I must say that I’m mightily impressed with it’s ease of use. And a real plus is that someone without an in-depth knowledge of XHTML/CSS/PHP can keep it all updated. Ahh, ease of maintenance :) I also love the JCE content editor utilities that give you sliding pop-ups. How childish is that?

Interestingly, the utilities are released as free software under the GPL, though the author makes a bit of money by charging for access to the site. Isn’t this against the spirit of Free Open Source Software?

Edward and I have agreed to use barter as the economic means of exchange. Hopefully I will come into the possession of a couple of lovely paintings. Or a sheep.
