this is not a blog

I Reckon This Must be the Place, I Reckon

A PHP blog-like application that is small, efficient and fast or something

THIS code should be considered a curiosity. If it was in the state it is in now ten years ago I think it would have caught on. It can do about 90% of what many popular Blog/CMS applications do in 1/10th the size — and with no globals, no classes and no Javascript.

It is near truly customizable with data arrays (sometimes as INI files) controlling most important features. It has true web templates. It has an almost complete separation of code and data: no inline PHP or print statements or SQL strings strewn throughout the code for example.

I think all that has great merit.

But... It's too late. The Internet ain't for small APIs but for massive distributed Javascript that can take months to debug and is fixed by magic.

Sigh

  1. To catch on... I will still work on it. The really interesting thing about this code? It gets smaller with each release even as more features get added. I like that.

Site in Progress


This site is going to appear weird. It's not a blog, though it has "blog" tendencies. It's (trying to be) a technical minded look at Internet software and, at times, programing in general.

There are posts about combatting BOTs and Exploiters and other Netscum, and indepth looks into Apache log files.

As well as commentary about stuff related to Internet websites – so-called CMS programs in particular – among other things.
