After more complaints from a person -- whom i'll keep confidential -- i've added an "post as anonymous feature" to TrickleUp. S/he was right. It should have been there. I just didn't get to it yet.

S/he mentioned that s/he must clear her/his cache and cookies everyday. This is understandable. And i do know it's a pain to request your cookie everyday, so here's the solution. Request it once, you'll get an email with a URL. Bookmark that URL.

And on authentication, yeah i think it's important for a blog. Animosity exists in the world. I would hate to be the host of nasty impersonation. One could easily hurt the reputation of antoher. It's also possible to incite poor relationships.

Other blogging software such as Blogger, LiveJournal, and WordPress already have these features. (I'm not sure about UserLand and MovableType.) They all require a username and password combo. In TrickleUp, i have have that, but i also have a watered down version, called the User Cookie. Here you give me your email address, and i'll give you a cookie that lasts a year.


TrickleUp now has threading. Threading is the organization or articles by their post-comment relationship. In TrickleUp a comment is also a post (geeks: think inheritance), so comments can have comments.


In the spirit of becoming a bona fide blog, i've added a new feature. Trackbacks are useful to fellow bloggers. Instead of putting their comments on my blog, they can keep their comments on their blog, and leave a reference on my blog to it.

If you have a minute (and a blog), please help me test this feature. It needs to comply to the Movable Type Trackback Technical Specification.

The trackback URL is down below.

Although others can trackback ping me, i am not yet able to ping them. I need to write more code for that.

In terms of TrickleUp taxonomy, the trackback is an extension of the comment.

TrickleUp is Active

As you can see, the website looks a little different. What you see is the TrickleUp Effect. The top page has or will have a summary of every object on the site.

Every object has a summary and that's all you see on the top page. Lower level pages have more detail. For example the Blog, which you must be looking at now has a longer body. The polls replaces this body with an actual poll. In some time you will see pictures, reviews, etc appear.

Old Articles

I linked in my old articles. Go to the Blog section to see the last 42 articles. And i fixed links in the Thoughts section


I continue to make changes to the underlying structure of this web site towards the ideal TrickleUp i envision. The latest change separating the blog into a webObject::blog and a page::blogPage.

Yes i know my News page is similar to my Blog page, but that will change when the News page shows objects of all types.


Readers may now post comments on articles. You may be wondering why don't i just use some blogging software. "Why reinvent the wheel?"

Well one reason is to exercise my programming abilities. Also, i want a blog that blends seemlessly into the my web site. It can't look like a separate entity in any way. Any blogger i'd use must be fully open source.

WordPress looks interesting, but it uses that pseudo-relational sell-out database MySQL, which doesn't even have support for views, transactions, or foreign-key constraints. PostgreSQL is much better. However when i release my blogging software, it will use ODBC.


Blog entries are now in a database. I've got the hooks for comments. I'll need to create a new table for them. I'll work on that tonight. For now they won't be recursive comments.
