Karen Sept's Osteopathic Practice

Some of you may know Karen Sept from Saint Stephen's. I just put a web site for osteopathic practice up on my server. She runs her practice in Hawaii. Karen is a great person, and I'm really hoping her practice takes off :) So if you know Karen, link to her site. Osteopathic medicine sounds really cool. I never knew what it was before.

I was really pleased with how easy it was to set up a brand new site. I just logged into my registrar and added the new name, pointing it to my IP address. Then I modified my Apache configuration to bring up that web site when people visited that URL using Apache's Virtual Host system, which took all of 3 minutes, and I didn't even know anything about it; I just copied some example. She wrote the site content, so all I had to do was untar it onto my server.

That probably sounds pretty hard to folks who are using a complete hosting service where you have FTP access and all you have to do is drag the files over to the server. Well, I like doing things the "hard" way and then talking about how easy it is ;)
