Project Pups

Say HI to the project puppers, those faithful companions both past and present, who have contributed to the project in a thousand different ways

Sheba

the prettiest girl on the block

Job title
Model and comfy place tester

Breed
Lurcher

From
Greenacres Animal Rescue

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.

Management review
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. 

Jason

Nickname : Mr. Fluffy

Job title
Chief of security, Vince's right hand dawg and ball fetcher extraordinaire.

Breed
German Shepherd

From
APASA Javea

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.

Management review
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.

Sally

Food thief and treat snaffler

Job title
Walking tummy

Breed
Lurcher

From
Greenacres Animal Rescue

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.

I distrust
Empty food bowls. An empty food bowl is an anathema to me, it simply shouldn't exist at all.

Management review
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.


Honour roll

Gone but never forgotten

Lily

Lily sadly left the company earlier this year after a lifetime of dedicated service. Her greatest contribution to the company was to teach Jason how to chase balls.

Bonnie

Bonnie's legacy was to teach us that it didn't matter what obstacles life put in her way, she could always overcome. Despite having diabetes and going blind as a result, that never stopped her. She would be the first one out the door for her morning walk, and so long as she could feel the path beneath her paws she knew exactly where she was going.

Penny

Penny was with us for most of her life. She will always be remembered for barking at toys and saw her role in life to snuggle up to whoever was in bed and make sure that they were warm.

ABOUT US

Vince portrait smallaladar

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, 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 formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

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. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team 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 new Valentina Template Package.
