Built With BBEdit


Technical Specs (July 2008):

It became obvious that it was costing me WAY more to host this at my house than to host it at a provider.
After much looking I decided to go with HostGator
So far they have been reliable, and MUCH faster than my home connection.
I figure that the $7.95 a month is less than the electricity to run the server, not to mention the cost of a static IP address etc.
I am using a router from LinkSys..

I have also switched from BBedit to Coda a very nice editor.
