Anonymous Coward writes "I just bought a domain and would like to slashcode it out, as a forum for paintball. What would be the best way to get started? I have a sparc2 (running Solaris 8, slowly:^) I also have a few extra machines around....I just bring this up because I assume I will need to load a Linux/Unix box to develop and update the site in perl??? www.engaging.net looks good for hosting, is this the best way to go or could I just use one of those $6.95 a month places? As far as Perl goes, could I learn as I go or do I have to be super-code-guy right from the start? I bought fuznuck.com, it's pointed at my ISP now....could be a big draw, PBallers love to chat, talk smack, etc. as far as I can tell there is no place to do that sort of thing (no place worth a damn)."
