newslog is a simple Perl CGI program that provides a Web interface for updating news items or diary entries on a Web page. It may be run as a CGI or as a mod_perl program. A user-defined number of items appear on the "current news" page and older items are automatically moved into date-based archive files. News postings may be syndicated to Advogato or other sites based on mod_virgule.
Hmmm... a porn coder?
Oh, wait, maybe I have seen the work of some porn
coders. Aren't you the guys who write the code
that spams my users with deceptive email that
drags their browser off to sites they didn't want
to go to and then, when they try to leave, pops up
endless numbers of new windows until their browser
Overall, I like the new features but I think the
visual design needs some work. The single most
apparent problem is the lack of anything
distinctive (other than the small yellow icon) to
seperate one entry from the next. The old design
had well-defined borders around each entry that
made it very easy to see what was part of the
entry you were looking at and what was not. With
the new borderless design, it's a bit harder to
see where one entry ends and another begins. Ones
simple solutions would be to put a light grey bar
at the bop or bottom of each entry - for example,
you could put those tiny link icons at the bottom
in a greay bar or maybe the yellow icon at the top.
The only other complaint I have is with the
layout. It's way too wide for people who don't run
their browsers maximized (which is most people, I
would think). If there was a way to make your
layout size itself to fit the browser rather than
requiring the user to resize their browser to fit
your particular site, that would be nice.
Actually, I think Freshmeat I was also a fixed
size but it was not nearly as wide. Even with my
browser maximized on a 1280x1024 screen, I still
can't see all of the page without scrolling left
and right. I'd recommend a width somewhere in the
600 - 800 range...
Other than those two complaints thought, the new
features look great!
