Documentation Solution = Wiki?

So at work and the with multiple projects coming along in a very demanding fashion with too much details regarding system setup, network infrastructure, and IP addresses, keeping track of them via email is one thing! But keeping track of the emails and hoping that people use proper subject-lines, or even you remembering what you named your subject in the first place becomes chaotic and too much hassle to figure out a small detail!

While we’re approaching setting up a new document sharing platform for the entire organization and our web-developer is busy with that task, I couldn’t stand it any longer!

ACTION! Yup, I’ve deployed MediaWiki on a virtual machine running Ubuntu 10.10 that I’ve setup on a machine at work! I LOVE IT. This is temp, but nonetheless, it’s resolving my headaches with finding the technicalities and allows for sharing this information across the team and having no excuse for others to delay the documentation until everything is final 🙂 Boy do I hate that stupid excuse!

The installation was painless and straight forward. LOVE IT!
