1  Schome / Help with website / Schome Park blogs on: April 03, 2008, 09:47:07 AM
Since this is apparently the place to post such things, despite the name of the forum, I shall post this here:

All users of the Schome Park Profiles site now have WordPress blogs at theirname.spii.co.uk (e.g. kathyschomer.spii.co.uk). Furthermore, there is a group blog which anyone can post in or edit at http://blog.spii.co.uk.

Login is performed via http://profiles.spii.co.uk, using the same details. If you don't have an account on said site, you should ask me for an attachment.

And I know there's a checkbox that just throws errors if you try unticking it. I'm working on that. I'm also (hopefully) going to add a media browser that lets you insert images from your ┬ÁBlog that have been emails to blog@spii.co.uk.

I log chat too, you know. I imagine many people here do. I'm quite capable of quoting you whenever. In addition, my mention of IRC moots your forum-related points, as I wasn't talking about the forum. I hate forum-like things for the reasons you mentioned above. Plus, they scare me. >.>
3  Virtual worlds (in education) / Virtual world discussions / Prim counts? on: January 22, 2008, 07:57:07 PM
As I mentioned somewhere-or-other, I think it would be both feasible and useful to have an automated prim count system. This would consist of a robot that weekly (or any-other-time-period-ly) counted the prims in-world and updated the wiki page accordingly. Such a system is fairly easy to build.

Any comments? :P

(For the inevitable "Why?" question: because I'm lazy and like automation. Also, a weekly robot would be more reliable than a weekly human)

(P.S. where should this go?)
4  Schome / Schome discussions / MediaWiki on: January 15, 2008, 05:30:44 PM
Okay. The version of MediaWiki used by WikiWorks is currently 1.5.8. The latest version is 1.11. 1.5.8 is several years old. The "legacy" line - i.e. the lowest supported - and potentially secure - version is 1.6.x. There is no excuse for not being on at least version 1.6. Furthermore, the server is running PHP4 - which is unsupported as of 1/1/2008. Six months notice were given. As such, you're running outdated software on an outdated webserver, and thus lacking in both functionality and security.

In the middle of last year I was assured this would be corrected by October. This quite clearly didn't happen.

So, why are we still using five-year-old, deprecated software?
