Site updates

I added some stuff to the site, including OpenID authentication, and sporked the popup windows. Let me know if you find any bugs.

What I did:

  • Pulled out the only PHP page–the front one–which was only running browser detection to serve up the Netscape 4 stylesheet. My sister no longer uses Netscape 4, and I don’t think I should be enabling anyone else who is. (Nasty, tricksy Netscape 4.x CSS implementation! We hates it, we does!) Besides, it’s better to bake then fry, as a link I got from Bill says.
  • Comments and trackbacks used to launch popup windows. They don’t any more. Die, popups, die!
  • OpenID. I had to edit the javascript that comes with MT3.2 to refer to OpenID, but that was trivial.
  • I used to close comments on entries older than 3 weeks. I turned comments back on for my older entries. I don’t know why you’d want to comment on my old entries, but you can if you log in first.

<wistful>Is anyone ever going to send me a trackback other than spammers?</wistful>

  1. Another Voice in the Cacophony

    I have successfully signed in with OpenID. Now I shall run around the office like Daffy Duck yelling “woo hoo! hoo! woo hoo!”

  2. That’s pretty cool. I wonder if there’s a WordPress plugin.
