In addition to writing much of our own software, we use the efforts of many great software developers, and would like to recognize their products here. These are all fantastic products and we would be happy to talk about how we have implemented them to any interested parties.
- CentOS Linux: CentOS Linux is a powerful, extremely stable, next-generation computer operating system that provides a high performance computing environment for both server and desktop PCs.
- Apache: Apache is an award winning webserver that made this site possible.
- MySQL: MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. SQL (Structured Query Language) is the most popular and standardized database language in the world. MySQL is a client/server implementation that consists of a server daemon mysqld and many different client programs and libraries.
- PHP: PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language.
- SourceForge: An open-source version of the SourceForge system provides Web-based project management to software developers.
- GNU MailMan: Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists, much like Majordomo and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives each mailing list a web page, and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, etc. over the web.
- Subversion: Subversion is the more modern version control system that we use for development projects.
- WebSVN: Scripts to allow easy viewing of live Subversion repositories.
- CVS: CVS is the older version control system for development projects.
- CVSWeb: CGI program to allow easy viewing of live CVS repositories.
- ModSSL: The mod_ssl project provides strong cryptography for the Apache webserver via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols by the help of the Open Source SSL/TLS toolkit OpenSSL, which is based on SSLeay from Eric A. Young and Tim J. Hudson.
- OpenSSH: Secure Shell is a program that allows you to open an encrypted connection to another computer. It allows remote execution of command and copying of files from one machine to another.
