    We had so much fun, we thought we'd do it again!  We are continuing the discussion of Content and Navigation.  There were so many great questions and discussions going on at the last meeting, we thought you might like an opportunity to keep them going.  Kendall is ready for your questions, so fire away!

    You've heard that support for XP was coming to end but you just can't bring yourself to part with your beloved XP machine.  Matt will talk about what that could mean to your site and network.

    April marks the reported release of Joomla 3.3.  What can you expect from this version?  Should you upgrade now or wait for J3.5.  We'll talk about it.

    We hope to see you this month! Register now to save your seat.
