Pingbacks Enabled

Tuesday, March 11th, 2003

Well, my features continue to increase. I’ve got a pingback system to work (I continue to cross my fingers). This entry shall serve as a test to see if I can send pings. I already know I can receive them, so go on, link away.

I must give credit to Simon Willison for his work on an XML-RPC library. It made writing the pingback server very easy and I thank him for his work.

Comments Now Active

Tuesday, March 4th, 2003

As promised I have enabled comments on my blog entries. The core of it rests on Simon Willison’s SafeHtmlChecker class. It allows a good amount of XHTML to be used in comments while still requiring:

  • all markup remains well formed
  • no dangerous javascript or other ‘site breaking’ code is allowed
  • comments with invalid markup generate friendly errors.

As a friendly reminder, please keep comments “on-topic”. If you have something to say to me that does not realate to any specific post then feel free to leave some feedback.
