software times   History



January 12, 2003

Software Times has moved again. The new server is a P4 2.0GHz, 512KB cache, 1.0GB RAM, 2*80GB IDE 7200rpm drives running Red Hat Linux located in the NAC datacenter in New Jersey.

Software Times is now hosted by cardumen.com my new web services company.

I have given up on the idea of writing forum software. I will now investigate which free forum software might do the trick for Software Times.

September 15, 2002

Essays: Category pop-up list now ordered alphabetically.

August 23, 2002

Software Times is now hosted on a UNIX server with php server side scripting. The book and essay sections are powered by a MySQL database.

First item converted MySQL and php running on a UNIX platform: Book review.

Started conversion from FileMaker Pro and Web Companion running on Macintosh to MySQL and php running on a UNIX platform

June 7, 2002

September 3, 2001

Resumed work on the forum software

September 3, 2001

Created an "Error" page to replace the standard digital.forest error page

August 31, 2001

Did some cosmetic work on the home page. Changed the name of the "GTF Contributions" section to "Essays" to reflect the fact that I am no longer posting on the GTF.

August 11, 2001

Fixed a bug that was causing the text of the essays to appear in a narrow column in some browsers.

July 8, 2001

Added LinkMaker to help GTF members create hot links for the forum.

April 2, 2001

Reported bug (incompatibility) of word exclusion and "Exact phrase" features of Atomz Search.

Changed navigation. Now each HTML GTF file has a link to its PDF version. Also, from the file you can now go to "Home" or to "GTF contributions" (removed the links 8/10/03)

March 30, 2001

Added the search to redwood.forest.net/softwaretimes

March 28, 2001

Added a real search feature to Software Times powered by Atomz

March 27, 2001

GTF find list, reduced the list to 20 entries from "All" and added "Previous - Next" navigation links.

March 25, 2001

GTF contributions HTML page, added navigation links to top and bottom and added a "Software Times" page title.

December 27, 2000

Decided it would be a good idea to keep a running history (added this page).

Book search, changed the default sort from -none- to title.

IE, Current list of books, fixed alignment of top of page links (from center to left).

Book page, changed the way the back link to the Current List works. Now the Current Book is at the top of the back linked Current List. Not the best but better ;-)
