Request to close this group

Hi all,
I have requested that drupal delete this group.
I have since moved from the Pacific with no immediate plans on returning. Since I do not have anyone else interested in maintaining this group, I have requested the deletion.
This group will no longer be active once that is done and I thank you all for participating.

UPDATE: The administrators will not delete the group if a new manager from the group is willing to continue maintaining the group.

Regards,
Lynnold

Ideas for growth in Pacifica

Joomla seems prevalent in many Pacific Island countries as the CMS of choice. I have seen it popular especially in the Cook Islands where most government ministries and private sector run Joomla based websites. In Fiji, there is also a good number of Joomla websites. Here in the Solomon Islands, the uptake of CMS is relatively slower although many people are beginning to appreciate the power of CMS systems. Statistically, I have no empirical evidence to claim the popularity of any particular CMS deployed in the Solomon Islands. However, I could perhaps guess that it is an even split.

Is it viable to stage a Drupal mini conference

Just a question. Is it possible? What avenues can we access to facilitate such an event? Ideas?

Our Telekom launches site on Drupal 6/Ubercart

As the driving force behind web development at Solomon Telekom Company Limited, it gives me a lot of opportunity to initiate open source projects. The first drive to move into the FOSS world was our initiative to deploy our company intranet using Drupal 5. The combination with CCK, Views and Webforms allowed us to replicate many of our business processes easily. Some newer processes were implemented to streamline some existing business processes and conform to current web practises. All in all, it has been a "small" revolution but significant in a way.

DrupalCon Paris 2009 T-Shirt Competition

Added my design of a t-shirt on the T-Shirt Competition: You can view all the designs here, http://paris2009.drupalcon.org/t-shirt-contest/conference-t-shirt. My submission is People - it has certainly got some loving.

This would have been a great event to attend but I hope one were closer to the region. They had CloseTheGap Scholarships available to least developing countries which is probably a good sign for the future.
