Yuppie – my mirror is now officially listed in Apache’s server list.
I have been lately exploring this wonderful LMS called Moodle. My first impression was whoa – why can’t these guys make something that is easy to look at and easier to operate? Look at what a great UI has done to Apple (more on apple and samsung later)! I mean, come on guys – you have got an army of great developers at your aussie headquarters, it is time you get some good UI designers in your team. Even I can design better!!
Finally I could complete mirroring Apache, with some help from sweet PD. Here is the URL guys - http://servingzone.com/mirrors/apache/ Feel free to download from this mirror, and also share this with your friends.
Apache or Cherokee, David or the Goliath?
Apache has been the numero uno web server since a considerable amount of time, and just like WordPress, it had a near dominance in the web server community. Not that I resent it, but this kind of a dominance is not good for any domain. Now there is this budding star, Cherokee, that is pretty well shaping up to give apache a tough fight, or at least that is what people are saying here, here and here.
Btw, what is with web servers that attracts Latin American connect? Both Apache and Cherokee are from the American continents and the writer of Cherokee is a Spaniard, which again has very strong Latin American connections?
PS: I am mirroring both Apache and Cherokee. Let the best man win!
If you are traveling to Estonia, language will be a big big problem, especially if you are an English speaker. With most of the Estonian sites being written in the native language(Google Translator doesn’t really help), it might be mightily difficult for you to do a travel planning due to sheer lack of content. If you are stuck, try checking Lonely Planet – arguably the best Estonian information in English language.
I have already mentioned it once in my nascent blog how surprising to know so few women are in the IT development community. I was surfing along and here is a fine little community for women in PHP. So, if you are from the fairer gender and looking for some company, here is where you should go! Way to go girls!
Well, not THAT mirror.
Now that I have a dedicated server of my own I want to contribute my own way to the world of open source development and I guess the best way I can do that is by setting up mirrors.
Talking about mirrors for FOSS, I just realized there isn’t any mirror for PHP in Estonia. Is going to write to them tomorrow and see if they accept my mirror in their list of official mirrors. Will be fun, I guess.
A dreadfully low number of women are in the world of software development and that is pretty much evident from the post that I just came across. I mean, what the heck – 1.5% to 3% is just too small.
Here is the article I am referring at. have a look.
