After around two day work I have finally started a new on-line scrapbook called The Aethernaut’s Halt which replaced a previous on-line scrapbook. It is a new venture which should allow me the fun of creating a scrapbook full of my own taste in music, comedy and miscellaneous items. It should end up a fun mix of articles.

In the process of creating The Aethernaut’s Halt I learned how to setup, modify and use the Textpattern CMS package. All of which I found easier than I expected though you do need a working knowledge of Apache, CSS, HTML and MySQL to go through the whole set up on your own server. It is lucky I have already gone through similar processes setting up a WordPress.org page on the same file server.

At the start I did have a crisis of confidence in my own abilities which I soon got over playing around with the Textpattern CMS software which created a very passable blog page though I will still will be tweaking over the next few weeks. But the whole process was very quick and easy one you got the hang of modifying the software.

All has been a very good exercise which keeps my hand in setting up and using software packages like Textpattern and WordPress. Though I still have to learn how to set up secure web sites especially if I go down the path of setting up Linux on old laptops as a business.

So another journey starts and to follow it just visit The Aethernaut’s Halt site at the url: http://theaethernautshalt.duckdns.org/.

I am thinking of resurrecting my on-line scrap book under the new name ‘The Aethernaut’s Halt’ as a place where I can put my favourite music, videos, pictures and other things. It is something I did before and I am doing again mainly because I am bored again and want to look into setting it up using a different software package to host it.

Now I have the fun of searching for a new software package I can host on my own server here one which will allow friends to comment and add to the scrap book. This search and setting up is something I like to do every few while as it keeps my mind active and gives me a chance to learn something new and potentially useful.

So watch this space for the launch of ‘The Aethernaut’s Halt’.
