Tentative Blog

I've just tweaked the Xac news feed plugin and I'm going to see how it manages blog entries. There should be an atom feed in the file list on the right. Anyway, I really have no idea if anyone will even bother reading this, so it may be a short-lived experiment.

I might add a way to post comments but I want to give it some thought first. One idea is to put a FluxBB forum on this site and just embed threads on pages using object tags.

The advantage of the forum is that it's simple and I can use it for bug-tracking and general feedback. Again though, I don't know who would use it and I doubt many people want to add another set of login details to their list.

I could also roll my own comment system, but I have neither the time nor the inclination to do that right now.

Anyway, here's the programmer's limbo graph again, just because I feel like showing off the Xac graphviz plugin:

Haha, of course that didn't work the first time because the news feed bypassed Xac pre- and post-parsing. I also found a hanging tag in the embedded object.

sigh

I suppose there's something poetic about that happening while trying to post that graph. Anyway, it's all valid XHTML again.
