I love Cufon. It's easy, lightweight and fast. Cufon is scripts that embeds external font files in your webpage and it's gaining popularity rapidly. I see more and more implementations it mostly it just looks impressive. The headings on this site are also Cufon.
Heads up: you can familiarize yourself with Cufon+Drupal without doing the work, by downloading the Free sooperthemes.com basetheme.
You can download the minified version free of charge. We're going to load and implement Cufon through the theming layer, so download to your theme folder.
Making fonts for Cufon is easy, you can take any...

Today the new sooperthemes.com is officially going live. I have been talking about my awesome new themes for more than a year now but it's finally time to share. I hope that the direction I've taken with my themes will change the perspective people have of Drupal, as being the ugly ducking, and turn it into a awesomely extendable, flexible, configurable and re-colorable beautiful Swan!.
There is also a Design to Drupal service which is a service for superquick...

The first review copy I received from Packt was Drupal 6 Themes. I was pretty unimpressed by that title and decided not to review it, since I didn't have much good to say about it. However, the Drupal 6 jQuery book by Matt Butcher is something else!
The book has everything that you expect from a jQuery/Drupal book, and it delivers it in a clear and understandable way, and it goes in depth into the topic. The whole book revolves around doing things the Drupal way, and using best practices. I also appreciate that the author always uses code in a way that maximizes the use of Drupal's core and it's popular modules, he explains how you can make use of Drupals jQuery behaviours, and there is a cool example using Drupal's AJAX capacities in combinations with a Views2 JSON view.

I think Magento is great and it should be possible to integrate with Drupal, but to make this work well would be a very complex project.
The level of integration that you would want in such a combo is probably most closely matched by vbdrupal. VbDrupal is very powerful but also quiet a resource hog. Disclaimer: I last used VbDrupal about a year ago so maybe it's not slow anymore. A Drupal-fork would also be undesirable.
In the relevant Drupal group a proposal was posted for the integration but I think such a proposal should be preceded by a research of the feasibility of the integration...
