Anyone played much with Wikis?

I created a Wiki at yesterday, with the idea of using it to organize my bookmarks amongst platforms and also for a little bit of scheming and plotting regarding some of my ideas (eg. the Google Maps idea mentioned a while back).

At the moment the access policy by default offers access only to myself on all pages by default making it a little less open than many wikis that I've observed in the past. One interesting thing is that the access control policies also apply to things like the login page. When I had originally set the access policy to give access only to myself, I was actually prevented from accessing the login page in order to login to the system (a little database hacking fixed that).

The software package that I've chosen to use for my new wiki is Wikka Wiki. (Who comes up with such silly names anyways?)

Daylight savings time extension

I just uncovered a story from my Firefox bookmarks in Windows that I figured was still worthy of posting. Basically, it concerns the extension of daylight savings time in the USA. Anyone think that we'll up being out of sync with US timezones for a while in the not-so-distant future?

Darren's continuing computer problems

I just got off the phone from Darren a few minutes ago, after he called regarding the status of his PC. Although Knoppix 3.2 didn't work on his system, apparently with Knoppix 3.9 he once again has access to the internet from home (apparently stuff like his sound card is now also working so he can listen to his MP3 collection once again).

Unfortunately while Linux worked, Windows still isn't cooperating. (That includes both the Windows XP install CD for a reinstallation, and also BartPE). Apparently it seems to be dying when it attempts to detect / configure the hardware.

An email from Mark...

I received a link to a rather interesting article today from Mark (whom I think most, if not all, of you have met by not.

Basically, the article provides some information about Christian think tanks in Canada. It also offers links to some publications by think tanks which might make for some interesting reading:
