Web Server Software


Grex's web site is served from our main Unix machine by the nginx web server software.

Create Your Own Web Page


Everyone is welcome to create a personal web page on Grex. There are many personal web pages here, which you can browse from Grex's user web page list.

The basic information and limitations are explained in the Grex Web Hosting Page.

If you have further questions about our web server, you can check the Grex WWW FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) list.

Grex's Webmasters

To contact Grex's webmasters, send mail to webmaster@grex.org. For non-web-related questions, such as lost passwords or problems with Grex, please send mail to the Grex staff (help@grex.org), not the webmasters.

Grex has no official webmaster at the moment. Staff volunteers maintain the web site as appropiate. Kent Nassen has done the bulk of the web design and maintenance work for the last several years, including producing the current site layout and page design. Dan Cross converted most of Grex's original HTML to well-formed, conforming XHTML and configured the web server.

Previously, Steve Weiss was the volunteer who handled most of the technical aspects of web maintenance for Grex. He also webmastered HVCN, another non-profit organization in Ann Arbor, which is no longer operating.

Morena Vasquez helped maintain Grex's web pages and answered questions sent to the webmaster address.

Rob Argy was actually a webmister, not a webmaster. He came up with Grex's first logo (which lives on in our favicon), and redesigned some of Grex's main web pages. You can contact Rob at ajax@grex.org.

Several other Grex staffers have helped with Grex's web pages, helped handle webmaster mail, or both. These people include Dan Gryniewicz, Jan Wolter, Mike O'Leary, Valerie Mates, and Marcus Watts.

Carl Miller and Rob Henderson have both contributed to Grex's web pages in the past, but are no longer active webmasters.
