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',

Miro on the Beach

Well, this ol' cowboy just aint as fast as he used to be, seems that lily livered Lamont has been on a world tour just lately, spreadin' the Mambo Love (tm).

When MamboLove launched, I was wonderin' how MamboHub.com seemed to have advance notice, bein' as that's how I found out about it. MamboHub is still at the top of the "Leaders of Love" list, well that is after they removed yours truly.

Turns out, Mr. Lamont launched the misguided Mambo Love at a convention in Thailand. "mambo on the beach", on the 27th and 28th of last month, a "First time of Mambo seminar surrounded with sea, sun, sand -- Mambo on the Beach! Exclusive only for Mambo member." I suppose that bit about only for Mambo member is referrin' to this bein' some kinda user group club meetin'...

Seems like an odd time to be proclaimin' the wonders of Mambo when no-one seems to really know what's goin' on...

From the few pics I've found of it, Mr. Lamont seems to give a presentation on the wonders of Love Points. "And people sure love using Mambo...". Why heck, I wonder what comes next? Lovin' fat men in business suits?

Well, they loved him in Thailand 'cos as CEO of Miro as well as head honcho over at the Foundation, he could be their keynote speaker, their financial sponsor, and their Leader of Love!

Financial sponsor, you ask? Well, considerin' that on the english version of the event site there's no reference to Miro, then that'd be a fair question. But mosey on over to the Thai version and you'll get a garner at that there "Sponsor By miro International" banner.

That's right pilgrims, the first act of the new Foundation is to send Mr. Lamont out on a world tour mission to spread the Mambo Love.

How brave a lily livered varmit can be.

Anyways, movin' along. Seems like that Lamont skedaddled all the way to Thailand and beyond right after the release of that Beta thing, maybe before. Who knows?

Could be the Foundation would know, after all as head of that there non-profit Foundation he'd be travellin' first class on the community dollar. He'd be sittin' pretty, and livin' high on the hog.

As ya'll can see, looks like ol' Lamont has been doin' just that for some time. He sure don't look like he does in his avatar. and hey that sure is an odd expression of his face. Can't rightly see where that hand is either...

Bad shirts and facial expressions aside, seems that the "...special surprise for Mambo Thailand" under the info for keynote speaker Peter Lamont on the event page was actually free "I helped spread the love" MamboLove.com buttons.

As far as I could tell, everyone who attended got one of them buttons and all were happy with the event and with what had happened to Mambo for the past couple of weeks.

This young man was so happy about his new MamboLove button, as seen proudly on his shirt, that he began proclaimin' world peace and broke out into a rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar. They sure do have some excitin' events over there.

Seriously tho, I'm sure he was just gettin' carried away with the excitement of seein' the Leader of Love, Miro CEO, Foundation Chairman, and future lord of the universe... Ah, you know who I mean.

While he was there, from what I've found of these here photographs of the event, Mr. Lamont took part in the "Mambo on the beach" durin' the event. What he did outside of those hours I'm supposin' would also be covered by the Foundation. The rumours of Mr. Lamont partakin' in the buildin' of sandcastles on the beach are greatly exaggerated.

The two men in the centre there are Peter Lamont, in case you were wonderin'.

So what's this all mean? Well, surely launchin' a global campaign to promote the new Miro Mambo in Thailand is somewhat odd. How about on their home soil, or were there too many pilgrims that Mr Lamont didn't want to party with downunder...

Here his is with another convert to the Love Points system, wearin' his badge on his bag strap. Don't they look happy, not a care in the world, well except for the entire community fallin' apart. I guess gettin' money beats havin' to pay to become a foundation member anyways. Unless there was a drive for members as well?

Accordin' to a reader, commentin' on this here blog, Mr. Lamont also travelled over here to the States to meet with a former foundation member? What could that mean, I can't rightly think of an american ex-foundation member. Bit of a mystery that one.

If this is what those varmits are plannin' to do with Foundation money in future, we can most likely look forward to seein' Lamont and co in magazines and conferences near ya'll soon. You might even get to have coffee with a Foundation member and if ya do, try not to spill your coffee on them.

Whatever the Miro/Foundation/Mambo camp are doin', they seem to be stickin' to it for the long haul. What can be said at this point but that ol' line, "it aint over till the fat lady sings".

Now after seein' them fancy Mambo Love badges I thought ya'll might like somethin' more appropriate. So thanks to them CafePress cowboys, here's some badges and fridge magnets and such. All proceeds of which will go to the Joomla project, this ol' cowboy don't need no financial compensation. Why, I just rightly fancied havin' a badge meself, and this was the only way I could get one.

So if you want somethin' topical to wear to yer next big event, why not give the Lone Mamber badge a garner. I'd give 'em away free if I could, if there's any pilgrim out there that could arrange for these things to be printed instead of CafePress, send me a smoke signal.

Heck, this is becomin' a product placement.

Thankye kindly for readin',
