It’s just data

New blogging code is online

This new codebase has given me the opportunity to fix some things that have been bothering me. More on that later. But for now, a request: can one person out there trackback this entry and another person pingback this same entry?

Yeap, I thought so.

Well, I'd send you a pingback (to return the related favors you've done for me!), but my software will attempt a trackback first, before trying a pingback...so I don't really have an easy way to do it. And you already have a trackback...

I tried to ping you via the Dummy Blog, but it looks like it didn't work.

Greg: hint: if you individual comment entries have no RDF associated with them, but the page has the pingback header.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Aha, good idea Sam. I get an error now trying to pingback...

faultcode = 1
faultstring = exceptions.NameError: pingback.ping

Here ya go, Sam

Whoomp. Use the Dummy ...

Greg, fixed. Please try again.

Still no love, but a different error:

faultcode = 1
faultstring = exceptions.NameError: global name 'target' is not defined

Posted by Greg Reinacker at

Since I can't figure out the problem, I did the next best thing: I added traceback information to the faultstring. Hopefully, this will provide a clue the next time a pingback is attempted.

Meanwhile, thanks for sticking with me this far!

P.S. You can see the code in question at pingback.py.

Here you go...

Traceback (most recent call last): File "pingback.py", line 79, in pingback message=apply(ping, params) File "pingback.py", line 66, in ping writeComment(entry, title, body) File "post.py", line 68, in writeComment if not title: title=open(directory.data+target+'.txt').readline().strip() NameError: global name 'target' is not defined

Thanks, Greg. Now that problem should also be fixed. Onto the next one, I guess. ;-)

Sam, have you seen this paint bug?

http://www.davidwatson.org/images/intertwingly_paint_bug.jpg

It seems to occur when I click through a few of your blog entries and then hit the back button.

Environs:

win2k SP3
ie 6.0.2800.1106 SP1

Posted by david at

David: that's a new one for me. But then again, I rarely load IE for anything. I can't seem to reproduce it here (winXP).

FYI: I didn't (knowingly) change my layout or CSS in this reimplementation of my weblog.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Yeah, I try to avoid ie whenever possible, unfortunately, I get forced into it at work under considerable duress, due to the fact that my company runs exchange and refuses to load any non-M$ mail protocol, else I'd do everything on the linux box. And yes, I've considered evolution with the exchange client, but they don't run the web piece that's required either! And yeah, I try to avoid pre-XP versions of Windows when possible too but again am force-fed a steady diet of pre-cambrian Windows builds at work.

Anyhow, I'm at home now and thrilled to say that your blog looks great in xfs-enhanced mozilla.

I've seen a bunch of squirrely and (relatively) undocumented paint bugs in IE 5.x and 6.x builds generally relating to CSS but they are incredibly arcane to reproduce and difficult to discern causality. I'll ping you if any of this becomes clearer anytime soon.

Posted by david at

David: FYI... I use Windows nearly exclusively as my client, and Linux nearly exclusively as my servers. However, on Windows, I use Mozilla instead of Outlook + IE.
