Already green

Contacted these parties about going green

  • Also got a super-cheap server in Vilnus, Lithunia @ https://www.time4vps.eu/ mostly for backup verification purposes and
  • A mostly idling server in Esbo, Finland @ http://www.kotisivut.com/. We've had awesome service and quality from them for 9 yrs and the price is very negotiated from list price so even if there is currently not much use for the server there we'd like to keep it.
  • DNS services we purchase from https://gandi.net in France

First post

First post.

After tiddling around with "blog" in MediaWiki without proper support for blog like activity I decided to activate the this Gandi.net blog to try to get this thing going in a better direction with bigger steps and faster.

The blogging software in use on Gandi blogs is https://dotclear.org/

Changed the default language to English obviously.

An interesting question needing solving sooner rather than later:

Which URL formation scheme to choose?

Which URL formation schemes offered by DotClear would be best for use in http://blog.consumerium.org

The meaning of this blog is not to obsolete the wiki but to work in tandem with it.

The http://develop.consumerium.org/wiki/ was going forward so nicely until 2006 came along and I was forced lock-down the wiki for almost half-a-year. We all know that is an excellent way to kill a blossoming small wiki. I got locked up in a place where I was unable to continue sysop(presseur)ing the wiki so that happened :( :(
