Thank you Joseph,

Yes, one of my main goals was to be hosted on the .edu domain because
IMHO that just looks good. I know how to host myself using my personal
internet connection (although that is probably against my ISP's [and
most others'] terms of service) but that's no dice in terms of a
(free) good looking domain name. I've set up Gentoo
Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP before too, but that's laborious. Sorry, but
I'd rather not work with Ubuntu. I once had an interview with the
Chicago Mercantile Exchange in which I believe I did well due to what
Ubuntu would've probably never taught me (or forced me to learn).
Unless it is getting adopted more these days? I really wouldn't know.

Anywho, thanks for the information. I'll have to look into
alternatives for this as making a personal website is only a
possibility of what I had in mind in the first place.

I'm thinking of going with a WordPress with some HADES tutorials for
computer architecture. HADES simulates logic circuits and an entire
processor can be built in it, ALU, registers, memory, datapath, the
whole thing.
