Howdy pardner...

I'd like to welcome you to this here page o'mine, which has been whipped up in no time flat to give some support and outside discussion to the presently stunned Mambo open source project and community.

Why you say? What the heck is this all about? Well pilgrim, you've found yer way to just the place ya'll need to be to get those queries answered. Sure 'nuff this here place is where we can maybe have a chuckle over what's been goin' down of late, maybe even open some eyes to where this all could be headed.

So kick back in front o' the fire and we'll spin some yarns about what could be the biggest showdown Mambo has ever seen in the ol' west

Thankye kindly fer visitin',

Shenanigans at the ol' homestead!

Seems things have been movin' about, vanishin' and changin' here and there over at the ol' homestead of the project formerly known as Mambo, mamboserver.com. Surely they must have a hauntin' over there or some such, right oddly goings on of late.

For starters there's an update from mjjsource.com, who I've now heard news they did in fact tell Miro to remove their site from the gallery and all PR associated with them varmits that have taken over the fine piece of software we know and love.

Indeed I can only speculate that this demand from MJJ Source caused so much fear in the black hearts of lily livered Lamont's gang that they took down the entire gallery, worried other showcase sites would begin protestin' against the actions of these snakes of the open source world.

That's just speculation mind, and I might add a fair whack of anythin' a Miro supporter might find on these here pages would be seen as parody by the law. Just thought ya'll might want to know that, Mr. Lamont.

Anyway, my ol' cowboy paranoia aside, there have been other odd changes at the ranch.

It appears that the new gang are movin' in on the content on mamboserver, adding themselves as authors and such. Although it also seems like these sideshow clowns don't even know how to use the software they've just taken over in this coup.

For example, Brian Teeman, member of the core team of the project formerly known as mambo, left a blurb about his travels to Thailand late last year. It's still there, so all well and good. Exceptin' this, Brian's travel article now seems to have been written by someone by the name of "Travis Fraser".

Now that would be quite bewilderin' to anyone who comes along to have a read, that all this content built up over time by the ol' team is now somehow written by people we've never heard of. Oh yeah, there's plenty more on there.

Now, giving the varmits at Miro the benefit of the doubt, and I'm bein' mighty generous doin' so, this looks just like they've changed existin' accounts into the names of their staff members.

Much like the way they did with the head moderator's account at the ol' forums, when they not only took control of the forum they took a private pilgrim's account and used it to misinform the community, as well as ban other community member's accounts and delete their messages. They had full access to his private messages and the works, pilgrims.

Not what you'd call the actions of anyone familiar with ethics or morals, I'd say.

Makes me even sicker than last week when I was sicker than that time I had to eat my boots. Think I'll go boil me up a chamomile tea.

Thankye kindly for readin',
