Rotating Banners and "SU -"

Posted on Sat 27 November 2004 in About the site

The site is slowly taking shape. The two great leap forwards I've had today are the rotating baners and my attempt at a logo.

Rotating Banners first, I've used a simple PHP script I found at a list apart. I created the images in Macromedia Fireworks (because I have a copy, otherwise the same thing could have been done with any number of free graphics software available on the internet).

The "logo" is a play on my name Root and its use in Linux (an operating system used mostly for servers). Tasks such as installing software can only be done when you are logged in as the 'root' user. The command to log in as the root user is "su -".
