What is mambo?

February 5, 2008

It’s finding $50 bucks on a street full of drunk people, elbowing downtown for a bite to eat, AND winning my bet on the Giants winning the Super Bowl.

Fat Tuesday here I am. I’d like to thank 13 Possums for that meal today. It was, just normal, that topped it off with,

“I’m going to
pull myself up over the side, and get
all the way out of my mind.” – from Just Normal by Evertt Maddox via 13 Possums

    Just What is Mambo?
    By Vito Ceniti

    “Mambo. Chances are you’re familiar with it or have at least heard of it. If not, you’ve no doubt visited a site built on the Mambo platform without even knowing it. So what is it? Well, Mambo is a fully featured content management system (CMS) that can be used to build and maintain a web site. It’s a user friendly intuitive tool that allows both novices and experts alike to efficiently and easily manage online content.

    There are many uses for Mambo. According to a late-2005 survey conducted on the mamboserver site, the most popular use of Mambo is for personal or blog sites. That’s not surprising since blog sites have recently been one of the fastest growing segments of the Internet. The next most common use for Mambo is for portal sites, followed by community and ecommerce sites.”

    Thanks for the link. I need to get some more stuff up there. I’m damned sorry the original everettemaddox.org site vanished and I intend to try to compensate for it
