I am looking to redo my web sites using Joomla!, a CMS or Content Management System. Like many programs I use it is Open Source and works very well. Let’s hope I can work well with the program. I’ll let you know when the changes are made. I am so used to this old HTML site that I will need to learn a few new tricks.
I love the concept of Open Source. SourceForge.net is a great site to learn and to contribute your support to projects of interest.
From Wikepedia “Open source is an approach to the design, development, and distribution of software, offering practical accessibility to a software’s source code. Some consider open source as one of various possible design approaches, while others consider it a critical strategic element of their operations. Before open source became widely adopted, developers and producers used a variety of phrases to describe the concept; the term open source gained popularity with the rise of the Internet, which provided access to diverse production models, communication paths, and interactive communities.”
Here is a flute I will sell to a person with big hands. I made it from Agave and Gourd with some leather and stuff. I will make a few additions and make a few separations to content that are not now a part of my site. I am excited to learn this new program to make a large and intricate yet easy to update site. May be the formula for a more current site.
