Designer's Diary & Desktop Denotations

 

Every now and then, I'll share a piece of wisdom here, let you in on some interesting discovery, talk about business in general, or web design in particular - or I'll just rant :) Enjoy!

 

Holy cr*p, really? Good God. Where did this year go?

So... much like any other year, I've completely dropped the ball on the blogging bit. Sorry. Again.

As the Joomla! team is getting to the home stretch with Joomla! 3.5 (this will be released at the end of the year, and subsequently, support for Joomla! 2.5 will be phased out), there have definitely been some growing pains. The last update didn't quite work as advertised and eventually had to be installed manually...

I ended up taking down our demo site (at least temporarily), as it was getting hacked and abused left, right, and center. Really ticks me off, too. That site is supposed to help people and act as a reference. The hacker community as a whole has been very industrious, this year...

 

making that job at the grocery checkout look quite appealing at times. Anyways, I do plan on putting the demo site back in service and continue with video tutorials. 

Back to you.
