WikiCrowd: Lightweight Wiki for Collaborative Editing

Sep 23, 2009 GMT

There are a few things that set WikiCrowd apart from other wiki engines. Take, for example, its installation procedure. WikiCrowd doesn't require any database back-end, so you only need a machine with an Apache server and PHP 5.2 for it. WikiCrowd comes as a single install.php file which does the donkey job of installing the wiki on your server. Drop the file into the document root of your server and point your browser to http://yourserver/install.php. Fill out the required fields and specify the access rights for your wiki. You can either choose one of the available access profiles or specify your own by choosing the Your choice option and ticking the appropriate check boxes. Hit then...

Sep 19, 2009 GMT

Mac OS X Snow Leopard? Windows 7? Forget it. The coolest OS release of the year is Puppy Linux 4.3. By now you already know that I have a soft spot for Puppy Linux, so for me each new release of this nifty little distro is a cause for a minor celebration. And the freshly-baked Puppy Linux 4.3 is no exception. In fact, the previous 4.2 release left me somewhat unimpressed, so I've had especially high hopes for the 4.3 version coordinated by Barry Kauler himself. Let me tell you straight away -- I wasn't disappointed. Despite the minor version number bump, the new release represents "a massive upgrade, right from...
