  1. I think everybody knows where my preference lies.
  2. Emacs? Bah! I used that for a long time. Then I tried vim. I haven't gone back since.
  3. Could you tell me more about the scgiwrap bug? I've been running my site here for nearly a year without problem. And, yes, your assumption is correct. You can run cgi scripts outside of the cgi-bin directory.
  4. Thanks to FreeBSD and X, I usually have about 4 virtual desktops going at once. One is email and IM programs. One is one giant browser window (Firebird with oodles of tabs, of course). And the other two are for programming and system updates respectively. So, yes, my browser is always maximized.
  5. Certainly. Any mail client that can speak POP or IMAP, as I'm sure Netscape can, will work just fine.
  6. I remember last year when a friend of mine couldn't access my site when he was at school. They were blocking it, claiming that it was a sex site. As I'm sure any who are readers of mine, that's a crock. Probably just some goofed up keyword filtering that eventually got worked out.
  7. I know they have allowed other hosts to do installs in the past, though I do believe those were paid installs. When I get a chance, if you still haven't heard back, I'll look into it a bit further.
  8. Not to toot my own horn, but if we do end up making Movable Type available via a one-click-ish install (on the account level), I'd be happy to allow my MT Plugin Manager to be installed along with it. I imagine that would be a big hit.
  9. There are some license issues with a host providing MT for its users. It is do-able, but I imagine Bill would have to get in contact with the Trotts to work something about beforehand. That said, I can't say I'd be opposed to including MT in the list, but I may be a little biased.
  10. Well, the usual argument is that Mozilla and it's spawn actually implement CSS correctly (and in my experience, that seems to be the case). The implementation of CSS in IE can ba a litte iffy at times.
  11. Here are some good reasons to switch to Firebird: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/why/
  12. Believe me, I know where you're coming from. Having shell access on the offending system does come in handy in these situations. But, there are other ways to track down bugs in CGI scripts. What I've done in the past is wrap the whole darn script up in an giant eval block, like so: >eval { # all my code goes here }; if ($@) { print "Content-Type: text/html\n\n"; print "Got an error: $@"; } And as soon as it craps out, I get a nice little error message in my browser window.

    I figured that one goes without saying around here.
  14. Off the top of my head, I'm guessing that this has to do with a newer version of Mailman (with the older version having the whole list in one page). I tinkered with the new one for a few minutes yesterday but could not figure out how to get the whole membership list onto one page. I'll try again later when I can find some time; I'm sure there has to be some way to do it.
