One Year

Well, it’s been a year since I started this thing. My intention was to play with technology, and I’ve certainly succeeded in that! As with many things, this toy has taken on a life of its own; it’s kinda fun writing about the things I find interesting (even if nobody else is reading them :-). In the process I’ve met some new, interesting people, an unexpected bonus…

I started with Movable Type, but the “technology” list has expanded quite a bit:

* “Apache”:http://httpd.apache.org/ (1 and 2)
* “IPv6”:http://www.hs247.net/
* “mod_ssl”:http://www.modssl.org/ and certificate based access controls
* “Python”:http://www.python.org/
* “PHP”:http://www.php.net/
* “XHTML, CSS, and friends”:http://www.w3.org/
* “MySQL”:http://www.mysql.com/
* “mod_gzip”:http://www.schroepl.net/projekte/mod_gzip/
* “Wiki”:http://moin.sourceforge.net/

The server was upgraded by an order of magnitude (something I never blogged about, apparently), thanks to “Greg Wilson”:http://www.third-bit.com/~gvwilson/ and so I’ve been playing with other related software:

* “tomcat”:http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html for the students
* “mailman”:http://www.list.org/ to make it easier for my users to run their own mailing lists
* “postfix”:http://www.postfix.org/ originally because it plays well with Mailman, additionally for its anti-spam features
* “squirrel mail”:http://www.squirrelmail.org/ webmail for me and my users
* “courier imapd”:http://www.inter7.com/courierimap.html because it uses maildir, which makes squirrel much faster

This is fun. I think I’ll keep it going for another year…
