create 2 websites, Security Geeks and News Geeks (I don't even know their
original URLs) and was looking for a CMS. When he couldn't find one that he
liked, he went on to write his own - what eventually became Geeklog
(actually, if you check the very end of public_html/docs/history, there's an
entry that refers to another CMS, phpWebLog, which Geeklog seems to have
borrowed some code from).

you run a site about IT security if the CMS running that site is not secure?
> When Jason moved on (handing Geeklog over to Tony Bibbs), he also sold
those two sites. I don't know what happened to them, but I don't think
they're still operational.
