18. September 2005LiveSearch has not been available for a short period of time on this blog. So I reenabled and refined it a bit. It searches now not only blog posts but also wiki titles. Further there is a search term hightlight function, which should make the reading of the result set more comfortable.

Unter Windows lässt sich das ISO auch mittels den Daemontools  direkt mounten, so dass sich ein vorübergehendes Brennen auf eine CD-ROM erübrigt.
Parallel laufen auch Projekte, Wikipedia mittels eines Knoppix-ähnlichen Systems direkt ab CD-ROM laufen zu lassen (e.g. via Morphix oder Lamppix) [3,4].

Just the other day I checked in some code into the CVS of sourceforge. The code is not much more than a hack for now. Anyway. To come to the point of this post: SF does not yet support the sqlite extension. So the title here suggests that there could/should be a way to handle sqlite remote database files. PHP does allow to handle remote files but IMHO the sqlite extension does not. If this is secure or not is to discuss afterwards. PHP5 will generally offer sqlite support. Nevertheless I ask myself if there are any applications that would make sense to have sqlite databases handled remotely. Maybe for portable devices such as mobile phones or handhelds, if they ever offer PHP support (some actually _do_ offer already Python ). Since they offer limited storage space, it could be a solution. Contradictions, comments?

The good thing on weblogs, as Bertrand notes, is that it tells "the story". This is his view of the use of a weblog for project. Quite an interesting aspect if you want to know, what was your project a year ago.

On behalf of the compatibility issue Eric S. Raymond  worked out some guidelines related to open source in his Licensing-HOWTO. The compatibility between different licenses is from my point of view quite important e.g. for work that has been published prior the CC era. We should eventually start a compatibility list as it has been done for licenses regarding open source software. The idea is porbably not new though ;-)

Cvstrac ist based on Sqlite, which means, that the running this tool requires but only two files - the Cvstrac executable and the Sqlite database file. Installing the Wiki looks roughly like:
cvstrac init ~/Desktop/tmp/ wikiProceede with these steps, you should be able to point at http://127.0.0.1:8008/wiki and the login page should show up. The default username/password is setup/setup. The fun with this is, that there is no need to have Apache up and running. HTH.

- Categories do have a wiki page per default
- CamelCase words in the blog post are being parsed and linked automatically to a wiki page
- Wiki pages are now featuring trackback functionality
Data of blog posts and wiki pages are stored in different database tables. Interoperability on stored content - moving conentent from a post to the wiki and vice versa - is basically limited to human interaction. The blog posts are already availabe as RSS, RDF and Atom. Not yet the wiki pages though. Merging blogs and wikis even more could lead to new features not yet available here. I could imagine that some parts of a blog post could be marked to be posted to a wiki page automatically. Or blog engines could generate a new wiki page out of a blog post. Not very spectacular you might say, but a start. The question arising to me here is, what would be nescessary to make those blog and wiki contents interoperable.
Imaginably that Atom  could step into this role. From my point of view, there should be a common format for transport (syndication), storage and editing being able to handle not only those features needed in blogging (micro-cms) but also on wiki-oriented engines.
I will try to have a closer look at Syncato  a weblog engine based on Python and an XML database . Would it make sense to use Atom as an XML storage format?
29. October 2003WikkiTikkiTavi style Wiki syntax. As far as I can see this is not yet done. So what I found is a PDF to text converter for OS X . Wiki formatting has to be done by hand. Some Wikis do allow a subset of HTML to be used but there is probably no way around to write my own PDF to HTML/XML to WikkiTikkiTavi converter. For those using PHPWiki might the HTML to Wiki converter be of interest . Unfortunately the pdftohtml converter did not compile on my OS X .
24. October 2003WikkiTikkiTavi allowing trackbacking Wiki pages. The idea is to let users choose, what pages they want to enable with this feature.
So trackbacking to this SandBoxTrackback (see bottom of page) works as you put the appropriate TrackBack URL into the respective form field. So now one can reference to a Wiki page from within a blog. Pretty nice.
19. October 2003WikkiTikkiTavi that I found today and it took not for long to implement it. The Calendar has been Written by StephanUhlmann. It draws the next few months in multiple tables within a single WikiPage. While tuning it to fit to my needs I had a refreshing chat with ElkeEngel about blogs and wikis and the fusion of them. Actually she is working on a thesis for her diploma work.
Just some days ago I spotted the site upcoming.org, which is dealing with collaborative event calendars. Its intention is to let people register events in the future. Most of the blogger are used to have archived blog posts, sometimes also displayed in a calendar-looking-like manner. But if I look at a calendar, it is mostly to look forward, not into the past.
So I had the idea to extend that Calendar with an RSS export function to make those upcoming events available in a common format . There are still multiple RSS feeds around for this blog here, to be precise; one for each category. This is probably a feature not used by many of you out there. But what could make sense is to merge the past and upcoming posts/events into one feed. Maybe giving a marker depending on the current date, saying past or upcoming. Would the AtomFeed be able to deal with it? Just a thought...

This site is undergoing a constant metamorphosis, so do not take too much for granted here.

Weblogs are said to be "A web site organized by time", a diary with reports, news summaries, random thoughts, interesting songs, pictures etc . The time factor is mostly part of the URL of a specific blog entry, also there are variations [see Joi' URL, 1]. Entries are furthermore organized by one or multiple categories . Even providing an archive does not prevent from searching for a certain entry, which leads to a search engine to be implemented. Weblog entries often can be commented via a comment field or or ping- or trackbacks. I would rather like to have a weblog with a forum attached  than a simple guestbook-style comments collection.
A Wiki  is a web-based writing space and is typically collaborative, but does not have to be. While weblogs basically store events, Wikis categorize data . Furthermore a Wiki has revisions of pages .
Combinations are already fact ; Joi does it, others too - see site of Andrew, Keith, 0xDECAFBAD et. al. I also makes sense to crosspost links or contents to existing Wiki titles. Andrew has a hack:
I now also have a hack to B2 that automatically inserts links to wiki pages (with wiki names) that exist, but only if not in between angle brackets - I don't want to have links inside of links as nested anchors haven't been allowed for a long time in HTML land.There is currently a discussion over a package called "Text_Wiki" to handle Wiki-like markup  that could make such an integration less painful.
Some more thoughts and discussions in this direction, leading to klogs:
