Well folks, it's taken a lot of hours but it's finally here. In a
marathon session over two days, involving large amounts of coke and small amounts of
sleep, I've converted, checked, and rechecked every page in the website. There has
got to be a better way. [grin].
In case you haven't noticed, the website has
undergone a slight change. Those of you who have already had their coffee have
probably noticed the that the new look is similar to Daily Daemon News. Well, that's
no accident. I like their layout, the color, and the home page. So I did what
every self-respecting http hacker would do. So I stole their idea. Blatently.
No shame. No guilt. And I'm glad I did it. Mind you, I did seek Daemon
News approval first. And they have given me their blessing..
You will also notice that the Diary is now on it's own site (no more /freebsd/).
It's almost become an FAQ. Why don't you create a virtual host and split that sucker
off? Well, I would it if was my box. But it isn't. The Diary has always
been run on a commercial box at a web farm. When I started the Diary, it was small
and tucked away on a subdirectory of my main site DVL Software (http://www.dvl-software.com). And as the
Diary grew, the website began to pay for the site. Yes, those ads, which some of you
hate so much, have allowed me to dedicate a separate webserver to the Diary. There
is no way I could afford to do that without the support of our sponsors. Of note is http://www.tesys.com who have supported the Diary for some
months now. Thank you.
And by the way. For those of you that think I'm getting rich on this site, I
suggest you try different drugs. The site has grown tremendously since it started
almost two years ago. I would not want to run it from home. I feel that you'll
get much better service from my web host than from my home box.
