#1 Blogging?

by WillyWonka

Friday February 8th, 2002 1:43 PM

I was kinda confused about what blogging was until I found this http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1101020211-198891,00.html which describes things in english :)

#2 Blogs vs. "guestbooks" vs. bbses

by Waldo

Friday February 8th, 2002 9:08 PM

I don't get it. What's the difference between a blog in 2001 and a guestbook in 1996 and a bbs in 1982?

The difference is all your writing exist on a single page. There are really two main approaches to it, one is just to cite interersting links from other sites. The other is more like a personal diary published onto the www.

I agree with Mike. A blog is more of an online diary - in general, the audience of readers do not supply direct input to the document - there is no discussion, only one first person point of view.

Creo que es buena idea tener un portal de Mozilla en español. La velocidad para entrar a la página es bien lenta y debe mejorar. Quizás es un problema con tu servidor. ¿Qué piensas incluir en la página?

Hasta el momento esta en blanco, lo que ofresca es algo por ver. Primero que nada es necesario ver que aceptacion tiene en el medio y entonces posteriormente desarrollar el proyecto con quienes gusten de participar en el, pues comprenderas que yo solo no podria llevarlo acabo. Por eso me gustaria leer que se piensa al respecto y a la vez saber que gustaria se incluya en ella, para asi poderse establecer un punto de partida.

#13 nice popup windows

You might want to remove all the <csactiondict> tags and the like. These are included by GoLive 5, and do not mean anything out of that editor: what a poor wysiwyg editor again.

#10 [OT] Attention all dual-booters!

by jensend

Monday February 11th, 2002 11:31 AM

Anyone who dual-boots should vote for bug 12911, at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12911 because a fix for this bug would allow full sharing of preferences, mail data, etc across platforms.

#14 "Sherlock" name not a copyright violation.

by seitz

Thursday February 14th, 2002 6:39 PM

One cannot copyright a single word, nor the title of a work (see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/circs/circ1.html#wnp). So calling a project \"Sherlock\" cannot be a copyright violation. However, Apple could have a trademark on the name Sherlock for its file search software. So Apple might have claimed that using the name \"Sherlock\" for another search product violated their trademark.

Regardless of whether it is a violation, changing the name will probably avoid confusion.
