Our site runs on WordPress, very simply the best blogging software in the Universe. Invented by Matt Mullenweg, the roots of WordPress go way back to 2001 and it’s grown to do so much more than simply blog. Got something to say to the world? Head on over to WordPress.org and get a copy of WordPress for your very own.
An Emacs-like editor called Epsilon (Lugaru Software, Ltd.) was used extensively in getting this site to where it is today. If there’s anything – anything – that needs to be done with text then Emacs can do it for you. Ever have a pressing need to do a regex search-and-replace in certain files across multiple servers? A walk in the park. Live-edit in a huge file over an FTP or telnet link without the heavy lifting? No problemo. GNU Emacs is free software while Epsilon is COTS, but Lugaru offers an un-crippled, full-featured, cross-platform 30-day trial for the asking.
When the time came to do things involving money, we chose to hook up with PayPal. Paypal makes it easy to securely accept donations online without the hassle and expense of a full-featured merchant account. Hey! I’ve got a great idea! Why not try it out right now by donating a few bucks to the team?
