What have I been up to...
This post is cross posted both here and on lordandrei
I've been overhauling my business website. This has been pretty much the goal of the past 3 months.
The main web site is located at http://www.apolo.net
This site is an exploration into my learning PHP and mySQL. The entire main Apolo Productions site is now in PHP/mySQL and as a result has very little code. The entire hierarchy is also being maintained via CVS and as a result can report updates as they are made.
One recent update that makes me very happy is the completely new Family History
site that we're building. Since the family history for my family goes, "Go back 5 generations, get to Ellis Island, find nothing, then go rent Fiddler on the Roof
"; I am living my genealogical dream vicariously through jnanacandra
who we've been able to research back to the 1400s and possibly even the 600s.
The ancestry site requires a log in to look at the data. You can either make your own or use the basic access offered by the user/pw combo of ancestry/ancestry.
Another major project which is finally reaching a stable point is the evolution of our internal and external networking. As I am actually hoping to offer internet hosting solutions to the public (discounted really well for members of the OTO), I really have to up the quality.
I've swapped ISPs and completely redone the internal networking architecture. I've linked to a relatively nifty image
that I've made of the network topology. You may notice that some areas have been blacked out. That's primarily a really simple security mechanism to try to reduce hacking.
In other news, I've begun the process to officially register the name Apolo Productions
as a trade mark. This is necessary as I may also have to deal legally with the people who I feel are cyber-squatting on apolo dot com. (I'd ask people NOT hit that domain. The owner has a web hit counter there. As a result, people looking in on the site will only encourage him to believe that the site has value)
There has been much more on a personal level. And I'll go into those details in my personal journal. Current Mood: pleased
