    Info: Making Zone 1 Pages
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38

    If you've been hiding under a rock perhaps you missed the news
    of the updating of the Zone 1 pages at fidonet.org/zone1.

    Here's the link:


    All links on the page should work, please let me know if you
    have found any that are broken :)

    Because I was discussing such things with a fellow fido member
    recently -

    How it was created:

    I used a linux tool called Pyblosxom to create the pages at

    While Pyblosxom is no longer under development, it is still a
    great web page 'tool' for a linux geek like me. :) Since it is
    written in Python, one versant in Python should be able to fix
    it if it breaks. I use Python when I need to so while I'm by no
    means an expert I'm ok with that programming language.

    Some Notes From the Pyblosxom Page:
    "Pyblosxom is a lightweight blog system. It was originally a
    Python clone of Blosxom but has since evolved into a blog system
    of its own reminiscent of Blosxom.

    Pyblosxom stores all data on the file system in plain text
    files. This allows you to use any text editor to create, update
    and manipulate entries. You can also use existing
    text-manipulation tools, version control, scripts, grep, ...
    for managing your blog.

    Pyblosxom can run as a CGI script, WSGI component or you can use
    it to statically compile your website into HTML/XML files."
