Say HI to the project puppers, those faithful companions both past and present, who have contributed to the project in a thousand different ways
Model and comfy place tester
My most challenging task is
Hunting down geckos and squirrels. There's a squirrel who lives in the trees across the road and one day I'm going to get him!
Most famous for
Escaping the garden to hunt down furry things. In the last house we lived at I kept escaping to get into the garden of the house opposite because I once saw a cat there. Unfortunately we have moved to a new house and I haven't figured out how to get out of this garden yet.
Sheba is a very talented model. Day and night, she works hard at her role of looking pretty and getting cuddles. She is also very good at sleeping, which comes from the greyhound side of her breed.
Chief of security, Vince's right hand dawg and ball fetcher extraordinaire.
What Jomres means to me
Jomres means that I can have more rubber balls.
My first Job was
I don't remember my first job, I only remember being in the APASA rescue for 9 months before the Jomres team decided they needed a ball fetcher when I was 3 years old. When I first joined the team my role was to chase tennis balls. Unfortunately I don't know my own strength and I can destroy a tennis ball with one chomp. We have since been upgraded to rubber balls and I couldn't be happier in my duties. I have been in this job for 5 years now, and I love it.
Jason is a hard worker who excels at fetching rubber balls. We've never had a staff member who's so dedicated to his task and we think he will have a bright future in the company. It doesn't matter what task Vince is doing, Jason's right there with him, supervising.
I get up early in the morning to
Go for a walk. I love walks with my sister Sheba. If I could I would walk all day. The other reason I love walks is because when we get home the Jomres team feeds me breakfast, and I do love my food.
Empty food bowls. An empty food bowl is an anathema to me, it simply shouldn't exist at all.
Sally is famous for her ability to inhale treats in record time. There isn't much she will not eat, she once had a phase where she loved carrots, and thought they were the world's best treat however she's grown out of that now. The management team are just grateful that Sally hasn't yet learned how to open dog food tins, otherwise the project would be bankrupt within a month.
Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.
As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.
Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.
Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
