I'm Wayne Schlitt, and this is my personal website.
I'm the proud father of two, Vicki Schlitt and Brian Schlitt. They
are still too young have their own websites, but I'm sure that will
change in a few years. ;-)
And, now on to an obligatory rant, I'm a big fan of
Open Source Software, not so
much because it can be obtained cheaply
("free beer"), but because it gives you a lot of freedom
With free software, you
control your own system. If you need to have a bug fixed or a feature
added, you can either fix it yourself or pay for someone else to fix
it. With proprietary software, the vendor may or may not do what you
need done, and if they do, they can choose when and how much to
charge. A particular problem that is critical for you or your
company may be very low priority to them.
With free software, you can never be forced to upgrade from an
"obsolete" program. For programmers, free software means that you can
always find out exactly what that weird error message means, and you
can see lots of examples of how to do useful things.
This website runs on Debian
Linux, a free Unix like operating systems. I have run it since
around 1995 and have found it quite stable and very functional.
The biggest problem with Debian is the first install, after that,
upgrades and such go very smoothly. Linux in general, and Debian in
particular is geared toward computer programmers, not the general
public. This is mostly due to the fact that programmers who donate
their time to creating free software tend to program those things they
are interested in.
The webserver that I use is Apache. More websites use Apache
than all other websites combined. Like Debian, it is free software.
The HTML pages are generated using
WML. Like Debian and
Apache, it is free software. It is great for programmer oriented
people like me. I originally obtained the templates and
macros from Tom Gilbert's
website, but I've hacked on them quite a bit. Any bugs are probably mine.
You are invited to view and use the
WML source code for this web site. Be aware
that I'm still regularly making changes to it, so there may be bugs.
