My friend, you are full of good ideas.
Still, i realy have no use for them ...
I am a UNIX guy for over 20 years now, working in that area, also running several server and sites - so PLEASE let me decide myself if i prefer a Wikki or continue to fiddle around with HTLM, yes? And YES, i know HTML and vi and also Emacs BTW.
Thanx!
I realy hate that forums and newsgroups attract people who NEED to jump in and comment - whatever and whyever.

Bah. Just trying to be helpful, since you only mentioned that you're to lazy to make html links. No need to get all pissed off.

Whatever. That's it for OT from me.

Still, a Wikki is much more comfortable for adding, removing and changings lists of URLS ...

I was gonna write a lot here. Imagine that, me writing a lot.
It would have looked like this:

<flame>RANT RANT RANT RANT</flame>

But I decided to be nice. Lets just say that forums are for discussion - and if you're going to make like 50 unsolicted posts in a week, how can you get annoyed when people "just jump in and comment". Forums are for opinions and questions, so stop getting stroppy when people ask why you choose to do something the way you do, or give their view on it. Everyone here has as much right to post as you do, even if you spawned the thread; *especially* so in the case of all these reviews - we're quite aware you only got V running a week ago, remember?

I will also be nice. Fine?

Posting in a topic is different from telling somebody how and what he has to do.
Completely offtopic i said that i am fighting with a wikki and got a comment to drop that and use vi instead.
And this is NOT OK!


BTW, what has people commenting to do with the problems to compile V?!?

Just trying to say something?

Try again ...

To clear things out a little:
I did not say "drop the wiki, use vi". From what I read I thought that you wanted to use a wiki in order to display a simple page with links and reviews, which I think would be overkill. Also, I missed the fact that you were in the process of setting up the wiki already.

Well, I have great sympathy with anyone who dislikes or has trouble with vi. I am old enough to have been told it's the king of editors, and young enough to have failed to master it. Same with emacs. I use nano/pico/whatever if I'm working in a console. There was a really nice editor called le which did colouring and indents and stuff (a bit like IDLE, the Python gui), but it never caught on (last time I looked it had some unresolvable dependency in Debian so I left it).

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I managed to set up my wiki in a single afternoon. It's not much to look at, and there's precious little content yet, but it was easy enough to get working - I'm not stupid, but I'm not a *nix guru either.

If you want to check it out, it's here

Is there any reason you chose a wiki for this particular project? I'm confident a blog would do the same e.g. I hold my opinions strongly one at a time, and tend to forget about them later

Magnate, i planned to use the wiki for similar things as you
I wanted to easy edit pages for my own and others reference ...

My wiki is still empty - mainly because i could not find a way to edit regular webpages with the wiki.

For example:

The page http://www.tja-server.de contains some links ...

Now, i want to edit this page with the wiki!

At best in a transparent way - the wiki should be invisible for the regular user of this site.
Editing would be done over wiki-pages at http://www.tja-server.de/mywiki
But any changes made should be visible on the normal index-page of the domain.


Mh. Not sure if i could explain what i mean


BTW, Andrew ... a Blog could possibly also handle my wishes, but i am not sure how seary to cross-link pages and use a markup-language.
Do you know a good Blog-Software (Linux)?

I am not sure anymore that a Wikki can do what i want.

I want something like this forum - i can just write an URL and in my webbrowser this will be shown as clickable link.

This way i want to easily manage whole pages of URLs - for use in a webbrowser.

If i do this in the wikki, it will destroy my page formating ...
If i write the URLs within "{{{", the URLs will not be clickable :-(

Any idea?

Ups - this is quite Off Topic.
