Drupal as base system for Mobile

This is an interesting video — demonstrating how drupal can be used as the base system for iPhone/iPad/Android using Appcelerator Titanium — even if it’s painful to listen to the ‘I Got Drupal’ music video…

New look…

Whew; have been working on getting this site updated on a dev server, and finally got it up and running with fixes on the production server — just have would like to change the way the contact page works — there’s no real UI response that a message was sent… I’ll probably do a quick…
