The Common Lisp Directory turns 1

Today is the first birthday of the Common Lisp Directory!

First I want to thank all the people who have submitted entries to it, with 
special thanks to Paolo Amoroso who have submitted the majority of them. So 
thanks guys and please go on! :)
As of today the CLD has 1017 entries including 522 libraries/software, 170 
documents and 270 people. It also has 794 registered users.

The CLD is here: www.cl-user.net

Some bits of history:
The Common Lisp Directory started as a reaction to the Reddit's failure to 
use Common Lisp:
Reddit: Let's rewrite a better one in Common Lisp.
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.lisp/msg/c0159fbbc6496def

Then a few days later this evolved into what is now the CLD:
The Common Lisp Directory: Day 1
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.lisp/msg/59d6bd23fc21f2f5

It is interesting to notice that one year later, it is still the same Lisp 
process that is running. The project has evolved from Linkit to the CLD 
without ever quitting the Lisp process. It has never crashed, even though 
the application and the CLOS classes have changed a lot of times. In the 
same time, I had to restart several times the Apache process and reboot a 
lot of time the 3COM firewall router in front of the server.

At the time I'm writing this, after one year and 7 days, the same Lisp 
process has served 111 977 267 HTTP requests.

Nice one. My thanks (as a humble user, essentially) to everyone who's
put in the effort.

Would you care to submit a paper about it to ILC 2007?

Happy Birthday! 

May the directory grow bigger and stronger together with the Common
Lisp community.

Nice. Which Lisp web application framework are you using?

I like the usability and design, but if you want to change the design, you
may find something at http://www.oswd.org

113 233 075 right now :)

My own webapp framework (the one I presented at the ILC02). BTW it has been 
using an Ajax like mode since 2000 even though at that time the term Ajax 
did not even exist.
I've released some parts of this framework that I think were of general 
interest and usable stand alone. These modules are: mod_lisp, cl-pdf and 
cl-typesetting. I also use iterate, clsql, asdf and my own HTML macro.

In fact I use this framework for most of my GUI needs, even in stand alone 
PC applications, excepted when I need OpenGL. But from banking applications 
to FPGA HPC financial applications, most of the time an HTML interface with 
the Ajax like mode is enough.
