  • shellCMS now has external CSS file

    A limitation is that the static web pages are built with inline CSS, so if I want to change the CSS then have to regenerate all of the pages. Ditto, there is some text at the footer of each page that I would like to separate out to another file, so can change if desired and not have to rebuild all the pages.

  • Mozilla VPN Completes Independent Security Audit by Cure53 [Ed: Sort of misses the point. So who handles this data of Firefox users? ]

Today, we’re doing the same with ATO’s Tuesday schedule, because hey, that’s just the way we roll.

Therefore, it can be modified and improved by anyone who wants to collaborate on the project or make their own distribution. It is due to this characteristic that we see the system being implemented for so many purposes.
