About This Server

This Web site's source files are preprocessed with a Markdown interpreter and compiled with ssic. Compilation is directed by a makefile that supports environments with (run make) or without (run make local) a Web server.

The site is served by a Debian GNU/Linux system. The system's installed software packages and configuration files are managed using configuration packages (a custom configuration management solution).

The system is virtualized on a KVM-accelerated QEMU hypervisor running on a Debian GNU/Linux host (with no non-free software or firmware). The host system runs on a physical server with an AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor dual-core 3.0-GHz CPU, a 4-GiB DDR3 SDRAM module, an Asus Micro-ATX motherboard, and a 400-W ATX power supply, all inside an old bare Gateway chassis.
