Welcome to chalsattack.com
For those of you who may be wondering, the domain name is a pun on the Disney show Art Attack. It was suggested by a friend of mine.
chalsattack was born in January 2006. Ever since then it has continually moved from one place to another. At first, I hosted it myself but shortly after, I relied on professional hosting. At the moment it is hosted by branchable. I think it is great to have real experts taking care of everything. It is definitely worth it.
Over the years some of this site's content has evolved and changed quite a lot, some of it still remains the same. I am just a bit older now but however, my love and devotion for Debian grows fonder each and every day. As I stated somewhere else: "The day I discovered Debian my computing hobby became a passion" and it seems like it is here to stay.
This site is built with the powerful wiki compiler ikiwiki This means that this is not a conventional site. Let me explain you why:
It can be edited by anyone. The only requirement is having an account provider or an OpenID. So if you find a typo, a weird expression or any other error that needs to be fixed, feel free, go ahead and change it. But please refrain from deleting stupidities as this site might be full of them.
It does not have a database like so many other CMS, it is version controlled using git. Everyone in the world can make a clone of its anonymous repository: git clone git://chalsattack.branchable.com/ but if you want to commit to this site you will have to clone it over ssh and need a key.
More details on how to use this site can be found in the Tutorials section.
I have a gopher version of chalsattack at gopher://sdfeu.org/1/users/chals If your browser does not support the gopher protocol try this link: chals gopher site
There is a plain text (automatically converted to html) version of chalsattack here
This is my new site/wiki, but...
If you are interested in reading my old blog you can find it here. I may eventually transfer all the content here someday but in the meantime you'll be redirected away from this host. Sorry for the inconvenience. And thanks in advance for your patience.
