Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


GeoBlog after several days

I'm finally closing GeoBlog because the Internet Explorer task was using 300 MB of memory (about 100 MB of real memory and 200 MB of swap space), and the system was grinding to a halt. Here's a final snapshot, after approx 72 hours:
