So I added the SpecSavvy.algaze.org subdomain. After adding that I had to edit the mediawiki config file to have mediawiki use specsavvy.algaze.org vs. algaze.org/specsavvy. Check out the wiki, create an account and feel free to add specs for any products you know about.
So I got my next idea started. SpecSavvy, a user contribution wiki where users can post specifications (specs) on various levels on products and others can use those specs to compare apples to apples at various vendor. For example, if you are looking to purchase a new computer, you can find the specs for a Basic Desktop computer, bring those specs into several computer stores and talk to online vendors asking how much a computer would cost which met or exceeded those specs.
The DNS name is not set up yet, but for now you can access it at http://algaze.org/specsavvy.
Feel free to contribute information on your area of specialty. If you would like to add a product/page you will need to create an account.
Thank you for reviewing.
So I installed WordPress in a blog subdirectory and then created a blog.algaze.org subdomain to point to that, but I guess WordPress is picky enough that it will only go to the home page if the URL in the configuration is in the URL. I’ve changed my .htaccess file to point to blog.algaze.org vs. algaze.org/blog. Who knew.
An interesting quote I saw recently, it makes me want to explore and take more risks.
What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
While I was doing a web search yesterday I found a cool, free web tool. It seems to be able to get the IP address of each of your current visitors and display a globe of their approximate location. When I visited a site using it, It made me feel like I really exist and that someone is noticing me. I’d like to start using it on sites that I develop. It is flash based so it won’t work on Apple products and many mobile devices.
