I've been working on my old PHP diff script, recently, going to hopefully get it to work like GitHub's diff functionality. #php

Working on language localization.

I am relying too heavily on GNOME getting those little squiggly lines (mostly Hiragana) right, that I fear locales will end up needing a lot of work. I hope someone will come along and do a better job translating HashOver than I have. #HashOver #php #japanese

I only have documentation to finish before the code goes up. Let's hope I can do a decent job explaining these things.

So...

I'm developing a comment system similar to Disqus, and after placing the newest files on my website, which include a new, heavily modified, and completely functional static output mode (a.k.a. non-JavaScript mode), I immediately started getting spam on the comments' test page. So much so that I have had to block over 200 spam IP addresses, so far, and counting.

It would be really nice to have a public, free, plain text, list of known spam IP addresses I could simply download every week, as to read into an array to cross-reference the visitor's IP with the blocklist in order to help prevent comment and email spam.

Does such a service exist? Or shall I proceed in starting it? :-)

+Yoga Sukma The comment system has never been officially released, and so never really packaged for proper download either. Nor has it been documented in any meaningful sense.

I can certainly see why you may have had problems getting it working. However, it is nearing its official 1.0 release and it has improved greatly. When it's released the code will be available on both GitHub and as a ZIP/TAR archive from my website.

The TAR archive preserves the file permissions and will make setup really easy!

For future reference, my GitHub is here:
https://github.com/jacobwb

And I will of course announce its release on my Google+ as well. I sincerely hope you can replace Disqus with it soon :-)

In 2014 TildeHash.com is going to be more active, starting with HashOver Comments 1.0 soon to be secondarily hosted on GitHub for easy contributing. After that -- barring remaining lack of API in 2014 -- I will hopefully write the new Pump.io share button.

Part of doing more with TildeHash.com will include posting to Google+ to better propagate my articles and software. So far I've redesigned the site -- layout HTML/CSS, the whole backend/infrastructure, and general navigation and tone of the site -- as such has been a long time coming.

For those of you not subscribed to my little newsletter:

Announcing HashOver 1.0!

Say "goodbye" to Disqusting third-party comments with HashOver, a free and open source PHP comment system under the GNU Affero General Public License. HashOver adds a "comment section" to any website, by placing a few simple lines of JavaScript or PHP to the source code of any webpage. HashOver is a self-hosted system and allows completely anonymous comments to be posted, the only required information is the comment itself. #HashOver #php #javascript

New blog post "XX != Years of Linux":

(A long time gripe of mine)

It merely rewords and clarifies my initial post to this discussion: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AntonyPeel/posts/bSyUVMXiU5C #gnu #linux

Me playing with Firefox's "Scratchpad."

I've been seeing a lot of jQuery "auto-scrollers" lately, and thought I'd try my hand at a plain-JavaScipt page scroller. Turns out, it only takes about 23 lines. #javascript
