[TriLUG] Tri-LUG member web sites - the sysadmin speaks.
Mon, 28 Jan 2002 15:20:29 -0500
Everyone who has an account on Fatalpha automagically gets a personal web
page. It's part of the setup script for an account. As an example:
Feel free to put your picture up on your site. The only restrictions are
that you can't run a business or store objectionable material on your
web-site (I think that means porn...).
Q: Who determines what is objectionable?
A: Inflow (we are in their site as their guests).
As to running a business... It's fine to put up information about consulting
etc... but no shopping carts please! BTW: there is a quota on disk space
for each user ~40Mb if I remember correctly. That there is a hefty amount
Q: Who is eligible for an account on Fatalpha?
A: Any current member of TriLUG
Q: How do I get me one of them thar accounts?
A: Join TriLUG and request one from either the Sysadmin@trilug.org or
firstname.lastname@example.org (if the sysadmin doesn't answer your note quickly
enough!). Note: we are talking about "card carrying members" here... not
mere lurkers on the Mailing list.
Q: How do I get me one of them TriLUG cards (virtual, though some of them
A: Show up at a meeting, grab a member of the steering committee and
sign-up! Just don't do it while the speaker is presenting or some folks are
going to be right pissed at you...
