I am a Apple fan boy, and the ipad is very disappointing. I personally was expecting a high powered mini computer that could do everything. This is a toy!!!!! bccarlso point is also a good point.

Cloud computing is the next thing, so if this could be linked to a server in the sky, that would be a step in the right direction. I have been following the webOS. If I heard correctly, if someone looses their phone, when they get a replacement and after it is activated, all the info from their lost phone is downloaded to their new phone in 5 minutes. Now that is what the iPad needs. A os that does not need a computer.

Nice site!!!!!!

Recently, I have been looking at www.memberhub.com This seems like a good way to go for healty church networking.

Tim

I am with Boyink on this one. Add audio to the PowerPoint and make it into a video using something like http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp or http://www.telestream.net/screen-flow/overview.htm

People like iBuilt.net call me on the phone all the time trying to get me to use their services. I really do not know if they are good. I do not think you will find someone to build a quality site for free unless, they are really good friends with you or your church.

Tim

Hi! I need your help. This is my second web site which can be view here: www.elplanmaestrodecristo.com

Please tell me what you think. Also, could someone help me with the code so that the site looks good on IE.

I know this is another question, but how can I learn to make my sites to look good in all browsers.

Here are my externals files.

Thanks,

I think Zondervan really wanted Zack Hubert and his project.  From the report it looks like Mars Hill did a good job introducing their site, and at 75% daily participation, this is amazing.

Personally I have been keeping my eye on www.Buddypress.com to do the same thing as The City. It is still new, so we will see what will happen.

Hi Destoroyer,

I like your redesign!!!! The only thing I don't like is the click here to order. In your current design, the button is right against the right side of the design. I think the button needs space around it.

Geek for God,

I like the website and the content. Great Idea!!!!!!

Hi Adrian,

I listen to the podcast at http://geeksandgod.com/ They always talk about Drupal for CMS focused on community. I do not know how easy the back end is for the customer who does not know html. Geeks and God has many recordings on setting up a community website. Also, EE can do something, but I think it is a lot of work to get a community feel. Check out this EE site http://greatnonprofits.org/

For our home business, I have been looking at CMS that has community and eCommerce. I can find a lot of community stuff for Drupal and Joomla. The combo of CMS and eCommerce is not happening now. Hopefully in the future.
