I have been learning Mambo, a Content Management System that forked from Joomla, another CMS that many people I worked with in OMET have fallen for. I learned to use Mambo because I manage the Mercer Island Education Association website. Using CMS on a project like this makes maintaining such a site a breeze: there is a built-in text editor, you can upload files, be they graphics, audio, or video, and all the content snaps into perfectly formatted pages with no need to edit any html or create any design. I also feel it important to have experience using a CMS to manage a web site, as these are valuable skills.
My only gripe is that I cannot seem to make the management side of things work on a Mac. I've tried Safari and Firefox and they both hang when I am saving changes. I finally resorted to running Internet Explorer in a Parallels virtual machine running XP. It makes me feel a little dirty, running XP inside the Mac, but it gets the job done.
