It's a framework rather than a theme (WordPress-speak cheesy)

In my opinion the site has to be business, client sign up type oriented site for the above bundle. Things like Mad Mimi, Hello Bar, Sendible are not wholly justifiable for "less ambitious" kind of sites.
Themes can be good but again if you use them, Site5 hosting the same.

Protecting their way is part of the "profit". How? they will go down in flames otherwise so lower profits for longer time is better than conceding.

How do they know that?  And if they go down in the process because they hung on to the old ways in the interest of protecting perceived profit instead of adapting to change their business model to keep up with their consumers, then don't they lose out in the end?  Because that's the way things are going...

Even the language- conceding instead of serving.  In the end, if you depend upon a consumer for your livelihood, you are in the business of serving, not competing with your clientele.  So in order to serve them (and in the end yourself), it would seem to behoove you to listen to and work with your customers instead of digging your feet in an alienating your client base.

Thoughts?

The board of director types see your downloading exactly as that. They see you using megaupload as competing with their not free version.

They might call it "shareholder value" or "the interests of the corporation" and just because it is interpretable in a court (many 'higher' laws are challenged in court too) doesn't mean it's not being practiced.

But I've heard it's insanity to continue to do the same things and get the same (or worse) results.  Their current tactics are *not* resulting in increased profits.  The amount they spend on lobbyists and the amount of ill-will they create far outweigh the few results they do get.

Even when shown the truth, they still fight against it.  Case in point- Apple wanted to increase the length of the samples available in iTunes because research had shown that this increased purchases. [1], [2]

Even given this, the music industry fought against it, first saying no, then attempting to get performance rights for a 60-90 second clip.  Greed is the only explanation for something that's better for the consumers and the publishers to be held for ransom like this.

One possible explanation:
Protecting their way is part of the "profit". How? they will go down in flames otherwise so lower profits for longer time is better than conceding.

Living in a society/system where in some jurisdictions public companies are required by law to maximize profits it is almost naive to expect less from them. They will suffer some of the consequences - it is irrelevant how much those consequences are exaggerated by them - but will not stop, guaranteed.

Build 494 crashed when changing views to DetailsWithPreviewTop, though it's something I can't reproduce. This was after creating, importing small catalog.

Some CMS's have options or plug-ins to generate static html and present that, instead of re-building each page from the database each time it's requested. Usually for performance reasons. Doesn't yours?

Front end performance hasn't been the biggest issue for me in this case.
The back end slows when there are page lists to load, modules/plugins to manage, etc.
One option I have is to convert this CMS to another - that may have less memory requirements -  but converting lots of pages, even few pages, from one to another is often not simple and may not be worth it unless the destination CMS is sure to be superior.

@Renegade: Thanks. Teleport Pro seems a good option to create a local copy, that's what it does if I am right?
The bulk of the work is to re-create web pages based on a template. I need a template-based setup for future pages and edits. I am hoping to convert the content portion of the existing database to something (csv or sql) that can be fed to a template based local program.

843  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Static webpage generator on: March 02, 2012, 05:10:18 PM
I am looking for a way to move a site to a "local" set up - for reasons that I will go into if anybody is interested. This is no easy task because it is a medium sized existing site running on a CMS, one whose pages would need to be recreated.
I am looking at Webmerge (some may have heard of it?) where I create a template and feed it a csv or some other form of database export. Googling for "Static HTML generator" comes up with others (Webgen, some ruby scripts and others)
I am curious if anybody has experience with this sort of thing?

I can also download the whole site and re-upload the HTML but this won't help for future (layout changes, etc.)

FXI is preparing to launch the Cotton Candy, a tiny computer that looks like a USB thumb drive. The device, which can run either Ubuntu or Android 4.0, has a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a Mali 400MP GPU that allows it to decode high-definition video.

It has a USB plug on one side, which is used to power the system, and an HDMI plug on the other side, which allows it to be plugged into a display. It also has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth radios for connectivity and supporting input devices. The system can boot standalone and operate as a complete computer when plugged into a display. It's also possible to plug the Cotton Candy into a conventional computer and boot from it like you would from a regular USB mass storage device.

FXI announced today that the Cotton Candy is available for preorder. The standard retail price is $199 plus tax and shipping. The product is expected to ship in March. The small form factor and relatively high specs make the product seem like a compelling choice for enthusiasts who are looking for an ultra-compact Linux system.
