As existing users will undoubtedly notice, SIMBunch has gone bananas! The site just went through an overhaul, and even though I'd love to write more about it, I'm just too tired now!

Anyway, most people will probably ask "why bananas"? A month ago I was trying to think of a suitable logo. There are countless examples of great sites with nice relevant logos ("joomlashack" with a shack, "rockettheme" with a rocket, "ninjaforge" with the ninja etc - you get the idea), and so I tried to find something related to "simbunch". The first thing that came to mind was a bunch of bananas, so that pretty much stuck. The monkey part's cool too (I was born in the year of the Monkey).

Still a ton of things to do (newsletter, commenting, skinning extensions, etc). More to come later. Need rest now.

Wow.. a Rockettheme template...woul d have thought you would go custom for the site.. nice concept though a bit bland compared to your last design.

heh yeah, I'm trying to go for a simplistic look. I'm bad with site design. Customizing commercial templates is the way to go for me.

The previous template was from Joomlajunkie.

I like it :) (I also just rip apart commercial templates).

It occurs to me though that the monkey (apart from your being born in the year of said creature) falls into the 'Simian' category (as do we) so you have another tie in with Simians going bananas for Joomla! :)
