Minicast: Photoshop to CMS

Here's to creative looking CMS websites! You'll hear us complaining on the show quite often about CMS sites that LOOK like CMS sites. They're bland, they're stock, they look like 1,000 other sites on the internet. Let's take a step forward and make our ministry sites unique, shall we...

So, remote control is cool, right? Right. We've got remote controls for TVs, stereos, ipods, planes, trains and automobiles. Why not a remote control for an entire computer? That's what I'm talkin' about, Willis.
