Mirroring Fs Site
Webmaster - Info
Well I had to remove all the forms from the site (temporarily), as they were being SPAMMED big time.
Not that any one else would get any emails, but I was receiving many per day due to BOTS accessing them. I guess FREESCOsoft is known a bit :-/ I had tried to add some more security to them, with no luck.
I am working on getting a complete fix for this issue and will re-enable the forms as soon as I am able to.
Well here we go ...
Well I have made what I think will be the final modifications, before this new FREESCOsoft goes live (planned for the weekend of Aug. 14th).
I still have a few small mods, and a couple others that are larger and more involved but not yet ready to be added, I will get as many of these done before I make the final upgrade to this setup, and then I will worry about the rest of them afterwards.
I have made my preliminary tests in the method used to mirror the site. I had some issues at first, fixed a few things, then all of the rest passed with great results. I have one more final test/config, that will determine if the final upgrade will happen as planned , or not .
If you do not see a "Postponed" news article above this one, then all went well
I want to take this time to specifically thank a few people in the FRESCO family.
I will start with Lightning ( the FREESCO Co-ordinator ), for all of his assistance in helping script files, dealing with the FREESCO packages themselves. OH and even more, for dealing with all of my "crazyness", in the process. My Many Thanks
I would also like to specifically thank Dingetje ( A Major Package Author ) for his assitance in working with me, regarding the packages that he has created and hosts on his site, Thanks much Small Thing
I Hope the new site looks & works better for everyone, as much as I hope it works better for me.
Please feel free to contact ( me via email Webmaster,or via the FREESCOsoft forum section located on the FREESCO Support Forums ) if you have any comments or suggestions.

Just an update on some of the improvements and additions to the FREESCOsoft site.
To start with, I have included a section located at the top of the left side menu section. Thjis section will display current mirror location information. To help people determine which FREESCOsoft mirror site they are viewing.
I along with, or more like, Lightning and I, have made some modifications to the packages to allow more inclusion of information, on the FREESCOsoft pages (and other package sites also).
See the "Fs Downloads" page for more information about the files used to help automate the FREESCOsoft site. Which by the way, should be used by package authors if they want their packages added to the FREESCOsoft sites.
I have added something that I thought I would never add to the FREESCOsoft site ... A banner rotation setup. The only thing is that it will only contain banners (and links) to "FREESCO SPECIFIC" sites. So it is not just a normal banner add-on thing. It may contain banners for package authors sites, for appliances/applications/machines/etc. that use FREESCO , or possibly any other banner that I (stating " me / I " loosely) would determine to be appropriate to be shown. (Being the Admin of the FREESCO Support Forums, I may try and include something there also, some time, for banners that are appropriate, like the ones that would be here)
Another inclusion that I am working on, have it set pretty good right now but needs tweaking, is a "mobile" version fo FREESCOsoft. Using your mobile browser, navigate to the very top level of this site (i.e. http:// www.freescosoft.com/ ) and you will be redirected to the 'mobile' version automatically, or should at least. Any problems with the mobile redirection, please let me know and I will look into it for you.
My hopes are that the mobile version might be usefull, for those instances where you are someplace workning on a remote FREESCO setup (remote to you normally) and you need to find a specific package that needs to be installed in order to accomplish what is needed. This is not a problem if you have a working LAN and internet connection to a PC at that location. Well when you do not and you have a web enabled mobile unit (cellphone, PDA, GameUnits, etc.) that can access the internet, you will still be able to access the FREESCOsoft site and view it in a mobile format. I have to appologize to some, that it may not display correctly in every mobile unit that is available. I will try and keep it as universal as possible.
NEW Face Lift - April 2009 - by Howler 2009/04/14 @ 00:31
Well a new face lift is started.
The actual replacement will not take place for some time, but testing and setup began a couple days ago.
The prospect of this for the new site looks good. We will see how the later testing and incorporation with the rest of the files, work out, before a final determination is made, but it does look good.
Fs Face Lift - July 4 2008 - by Howler 2009/04/14 @ 00:28
Well FREESCOsoft has recieved a facelift, not just a makeover. FREESCOsoft has had a rough time over the last couple years, keeping the repository up to date was not really possible. That has most likely been taken care of with this upgrade. Another major change has been the creating options for mirror holders. This means they can now choose to mirror 'all' of the site, packages for the 'latest-only' version of FREESCO, or packages for the 'current' versions of FREESCO, the lastest and the previous. Most of the mirror sites will include 'all' of the packages, but you never know.
0.2.7 Packages Renamed - March 24 2008 - by Howler 2009/04/14 @ 00:25
FREESCOsoft's FREESCO 0.2.7 packages are now renamed. The majority of the 0.2.7 packages were created before the naming convention was created for the 0.3.x packages. Meaning the packages would be like this ... The old 'angel' package by 'dingetje' would now be named 'angel_dingetje' The package named 'games' by 'lukasz' would now be 'games_lukasz'. If the package was created later, after the 0.3.x package naming convention was put into affect, and the new 0.3.x naming was used for the 0.2.7 package, it will be unchanged. An example of this would be the apache package by dingetje 'apache_1.3.27_dingetje' which was named this way from its creation.
