Alternate Web Notes

Web notes for this course are kept at multiple sites, including some broken web sites at Algonquin College. I pay for the notes to be stored on commercial Linux-based web hosting services, with backup copies located in various locations.

Write down the locations of the web notes and their backup copies from the list below. (You won't be able to get to this page if the main web site is down!)

  1. http://teaching.idallen.com/cst8207/13f/    (main .com site)
    The main dot .com site is located in a large data centre in Troy, Michigan, USA.
  2. http://teaching.idallen.org/cst8207/13f/    (note the dot .org domain suffix!)
    The .org site is located in a large data centre in New York.
  3. http://elearning.algonquincollege.com/coursemat/alleni/idallen/cst8207/13f/     (on campus)
    The ELEARNING site is accessible from inside Algonquin College even when the College Internet is broken. Unfortunately, the web server on ELEARNING is not configured correctly to run CGI scripts and it will not serve up the directory index files correctly. (See this note.) You can read the Class Notes by appending /notes/ to the above URL.
