The Computer Dudes, Inc have upgraded their basic website to the E107 CMS.
E107 is a Content Management System type website. That means it has a basic website framework and all the other functions are modular.
A modular type website system provides security and compartmentalization of a websites services and functions. The main benefit being that if your website has a coding error or is under attack only one part of your website is down. There are lots of other benefits, especially being able to use and modify working modules written by others.
E107 started out with a bunch of Gamers creating modular websites for their games and gaming "clans." It has always been part of the open source movement with everything being free to download or even to re-code and upload as a new version.
That is how Computer Dudes ran across them, many of us played CounterStrike, TeamFortress, Quake III and many others "back in the day." That's how many computer professionals learned networking, servers and programming, because they were setting up their own game servers. Good times. :)
