Blog software: bBlog and Snurf

A PHP implementation called [bBlog](http://www.bblog.com/about.php) is [Smary](http://smarty.php.net/)-centric. Neat. Look also at [Snurf](http://bdash.bluewire.net.nz/2004/08/02/snurf-a-python-based-blogging-system/), which is a Python-based blogging system. Snurf’s designer calls attention to [a W3 document](http://www.w3.org/TR/chips/) about problems any blog designer, or CMS designer could run into. He also [points out in a blog entry](http://bdash.bluewire.net.nz/2004/07/28/new-website-backend/) the problems he had with bBlog, what made him hack […]

Evil humour and 80s Movies

[Vice Guide to Everything](http://www.viceland.com/issues/v11n7/htdocs/the_vice.php) was weird. The world becomes clear, in a sexist fashion. If more people thought these exact things about these things, what a world. Tiresome.

Big sweaty men! […]

A Deleuze blog

[Intermezzo](http://www.aquasonido.net/current/) blogs his progress through Gilles Deleuze’s “A Thousand Plateaus”. He mentioned it in an Orkut group as an emergent trend amongst bloggers. I might do that someday: and all you see me type is some inane logging of what I read: I, an automaton of thought. Still, the idea of “blog as tool for […]

Roma, Roma!

As we draw near to our leaving home ground, I start gathering info on Italy. We pray that Heler’s rain rams stay out of the sky during our stay. The [weather in Rome](http://www.dmi.dk/dmi/verdensvejr.htm?city=150039001&country=Italien) seems a little wet for the next week, but we’ll try to keep it sane.

New Finnish blog on literature

This might come as no surprise to anyone connected to the Finnish role-playing set, but they have, according to Mike Pohjola, and in evidence online, started a new blog “focusing on literary and media criticism.” It is called [Perkeleen periskooppi](http://periskooppi.blogspot.com/) and is all-Finnish. Now I really need to learn that language, again. I sorely want […]
