I added online man pages to the site. Makes reading man pages a little nicer.

Well the Internet pretty much is my business and the stuff I add to this site (like the man page script) took all of about 10 minutes to install. In fact downloading/installing/configuring this forum software took maybe 15 minutes. This site is just a tiny little side project for fun. So there really isn't as much time involvement as you might think. Now reading/posting to the other forums, that is time intensive.

Thanks! Whenever I'm trying to find a man page to send to someone or I don't have access to the man pages, I always endup typing in "man <command>" in google.com and get a Mac OS X man page (grrr...)--now I can just go to your site! Hooray!

No problem. It's a simple PHP script called phpMan.php that you can add to your own site. I think I got it from phpbuilders. There's a show source button at the bottom of the page if you want to get more information about it or worst case, just cut/paste the source.

I made my own once.

It was very boring compared to phpman one.
