*What is beaconhall.net? [#na2bf050]

This website is a social group related with the game [[GemStone IV:http://www.play.net/gs4]].  Since it involves roleplaying, you can find a lot of nonsense and fiction here.

*Where is the webserver? [#g7da7a31]

It is hosted by [[Kaldonis]] on a Raspberry Pi in his apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland.

*What engine does it use? [#p18d2fda]
This website is run using [[Pukiwiki:http://pukiwiki.osdn.jp/]].  Originally, the website was hosted on an academic server in Tokyo, and Pukiwiki only requires PHP to be installed on the server.  This wiki engine is quite popular in Japan, but English documentation is sometimes lacking.  Although we are considering to port to a more popular engine like MediaWiki, this engine is simple and it technically sufficient.
