Penguin Greetings demonstration web site
For more details on Penguin Greetings, You can demo it in action on my
personal server www.canebas.org.
There are two versions running using the same Berkeley DBM databases,
configuration files, and website:
User/password restrictions are in place for this
demonstration. You can use the login: pgreet and the password: trial in order to try out the program on
Penguin Greetings now supports multiple ecard sites running on the
same server. There are six secondary demonstration ecard sites
(five of which are bilingual: English/French) listed below:
Note that the SpeedyCGI version is listed above. Simply drop the
"s" in "scgi" to get the standard cgi version.

canebas.org demonstration site is the
development site for Penguin Greetings. So it is almost
guaranteed not to be running exactly the same software that has
been released (the version number of Penguin Greetings is now
displayed by the startup page of the default web site.) As a
policy, I avoid making major changes for a week after a release,
beyond that things are likely to be different from the available
release. While I try to avoid having the site down for any
length of time ... mistakes and bugs do happen!
Since June 8, 2003 there is new card category: "Recently added
cards." If you want to see which cards are new to an upcoming
release, you can quickly see what is "in the pipeline" by
checking that category.
The ecards shipped with Penguin Greetings reflect my aesthetic
tastes - not any intrinsic limitations of Penguin Greetings to
handle web content. I personally hate cards with silly
animation and clunky sound-effects, so the cards here reflect
what I find appealing in cards. If you can make a card
that a browser will render, you can serve it with Penguin
Greetings. If you doubt this, make up some cards and
install them in Penguin Greetings, or send them to me and I'll
hold my nose and add
them to the demonstration site!

not.) So, if you wish to make your own speed comparisons, first
make sure that the SpeedyCGI backend is loaded before beginning
