What runs this site 3

This site is running on a IBM PC 300 (that’s a Pentium 300 machine that was rescued from the boneyard) under Slackware Linux 10.0 with the Apache webserver v. 2. The blogging software is WordPress with the Connections theme.

I’m running the Firestarter firewall and F-Prot anti-virus for Linux. I’m still looking for an HTML editor that I get along with to use on this box.

I been messing about with Linux for about six months and am just barely beyond complete newbie, but I find this machine, as old as it is, is faster than my Celeron 1 GHz box with Windows XP sp 2. I don’t think I’m much longer for the world of Windows, at least for my home computers.

    Hey Frank,I’m having a lot of trouble with the size of the font you’re using, it appears so small as to be almost unreadable.I’m using med.size for win., and large setting for AOL, so I don’t think it’s me, although I may be wrong :o)The archived entries box is unreadable.I took a screen shot if you want to see it.

    All I can say it it looks right in both Opera and Netscape on both my XP and Linux computers, but Bob had the same comment. I’ll take a look at the CSS tomorrow. And, sure, shoot me the screen shot.

    Oh, yeah, there are no archived entries. Too new. Someday, I hope to have enough entries to archive (grin).
