Directory Seeding: How Much is Enough to Start?
Gah!  I'm in a bit of a quandary about seeding this directory project:  how much is enough to start out with and how much further seeding just adds noise? I have raided my bookmarks, read laters, memory, etc. and have come up with about 300 links which, on the face of it, seems pitiful for…[...]

Logo Fail
This is how Wordpress plays "Joy Whack a Mole": Me: Yay, I made a neat new logo.  Happyhappyjoyjoy.  (Tries to install it on Wordpress.) Sempress Theme:  I insist that your logo be 50px X 50px. Me: Are you daft?  Do you know how tiny 50 X 50 is?  That's almost as small as a favicon.…[...]

Bookmark: dokuwiki [DokuWiki]
Bookmark: dokuwiki [DokuWiki] Another wiki server script.  Doku looks to be even bigger than PmWiki as far as plugins. This one seems more about formatting writing in HTML rather than markup. Pros: No database needed. Files are stored as plain txt, which means they are forever. Low server overhead.  [...]
