DOINS is an interactive web site wherein anyone with common interests may share news. News stories are submitted to the webmaster, who then posts them onto the main page. Then other people can make comments on them. Right now, DOINS is basically a feature-incomplete replica of slashdot.org. DOINS is a heavily database-driven web application, powered by the Linux operating system, Apache webserver, mySQL database, PHP, and a bit of Perl.
