It's 3.30am ... oh, why not; let's take a look at the techy details behind the much-publicised-but-not-yet-official blogs.salon.com :-)
126.96.36.199 is the static server (Apache 2.0.39). On Win2K, apparently, and at Exodus. Note that rcs.userland.com is at 188.8.131.52, so it's probably a box in UserLand's rack there.
b!X noticed the comment server URL (from weblogs.com) - presumably this (rcs.salon.com) is a copy of Manila running RCS (ask Netcraft). Is it listening to us with XML-RPC? This is promising.
Python 2.2.1 (#1, Apr 21 2002, 08:38:44)
>>> import xmlrpclib
>>> s = xmlrpclib.Server( 'http://rcs.salon.com/RPC2' )
Updated: Here's a quick note to stake a place as user #2 :) It looks like the static server is password-protected now, so you won't be able to see it ...
