Plain Text Wiki, Reworked

So, Matt Webb posted about his implementation of a plain text wiki inside of TextMate. Basically whenever it sees a document with WikiTermLikeThis in TextMate you can press Enter to pop it up in a new window. Nifty.

As you may recall I installed a wiki on the webserver on my local machine . Truth be told, I don't really use it as much as I'd like. For a start, I don't get to use my normal editor - I have to type in my browser. Secondly, like Matt says, I don't really care about the formatting either. In most of the documents I write for work I use MediaWiki markup, but this is because it looks good in plain text, not because I care what it renders into. The pain of switching between html and plain text is one edit too much.

So when I saw Matt's idea it resonated very strongly with me. The idea of just keeping these files as plain text which I'll always be able to edit somehow no matter what toolchain I end up with is good.

The problem I faced is that I don't like StrangeCaptialisedWords in my text. I find them hard to read. Oh, and lots of time spent preparing documents for mediawiki has trained me to make [[Links like this]].

Wait, Matt's stuff is just code, right? So I should be able to fix that, right?

Some brief hacking with Ruby later I've fixx0red it. If you fancy checking it out, you can find it in my subversion repository

Category 5 Felix barrels toward Central America
ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.

eine tolle Seite
Tolle Blogartikel die auf jedenfall auch mehreren gefallen dürfte. Aber auch meine Website dürfte gefallen auch wenn sie sich um [url=http://www.web-sex.tv][/b]Erotik[/b][/url] dreht, aber völlig private Frauen zeigt.

I am new at this so am trying to catch up.
Probably, but I am not at all familiar with it. I use DVDdecrypter to burn (free program) available at this web site. It is an excellent burn engine and I highly recommend it. I works especially well with DVDShrink.Cheers.For great guides:http://home.comcast.net/~bbmayo/index.html
