No Diary tomorrow by BadDoggie (6.00 / 1) #1 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 10:49:04 PM EST
I'll only be posting these Mon-Thurs due, in part, to the considerably smaller of people here on Fridays but mainly due to the total loss and current reconstruction attempts on the Wednesday diary. I'm getting help from some people who were there and Iceland Diary -- Day 2 should be posted Monday.

Your double dashes trigger a scoop bug, could you use something else, pretty please?

I'm enjoying these diaries.

Huh? by BadDoggie (3.00 / 0) #4 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 11:07:54 PM EST
It works fine in IE you filthy SCO/Lunix hippy. What's the bug and would a triple dash do the same thing? Using an en-dash is problematic since it's different for different systems and Scoop won't take Unicode chars in the Title.

I'm pissed off because I had this page looking great but even in editurd mode, I can't specify IMG tags and params, so this looks pretty sucky compared to what I originally had.

Editurd mode by gazbo (3.00 / 0) #7 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 11:39:37 PM EST
You sure?  When posting the story, you have to conform to usual rules, but if you subsequently edit the story, you can do what the hell you want: check the image in the extended text.  Click on it too and see what happens.

In fact, not that it really matters, this is actually a bit of a 'sploit for editrs to gain superuser credentials.  Bit of cookie-sniffing javascript in the onload() handler and Bob's yer uncle.


I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.

Nope. by BadDoggie (3.00 / 0) #11 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 12:10:23 AM EST
It won't do what I want to do, which is a little bit of ALIGN and VALIGN and ALT. Also, even if I use the direct location of the file as shown in the page source, the image won't display. It has to come from the macro. I tried putting the params in the second set of brackets but that didn't do anything. If you'd like I can send you the HTML that didn't work.

There is one difference though by hulver (3.00 / 0) #13 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 12:46:17 AM EST
You are still a SuperUser, whereas BD is "just" an editor.

...until I figure out WTF he was hinting about, 'sploit-wise.

Muahahahahahaha!!!

Huh - didn't notice that by gazbo (3.00 / 0) #16 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 01:12:18 AM EST
But I know I tried the inserting JS trick ages ago (when I was definitely an editor) just to see if it was possible, and also I inserted a table into a story that Trollaxor submitted.  Maybe permissions have got stricter since then.

Ah, I get what you talkin' bout by gazbo (3.00 / 0) #6 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 11:32:55 PM EST
Why don't you add to Comments/Post:filter_subject()


$subject =~ s/--/- -/g;

Or something similar.  Or replace it with a single dash or whatever.

Yes by hulver (3.00 / 0) #10 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 12:04:47 AM EST
I should. Or, just filter it in the trackback auto-detection block (which is what is causing the trouble).

I'm adding it to the increasing list of things to do. Or at least I will when my new PDA gets here.

Question by Herring (6.00 / 2) #2 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 11:01:51 PM EST
Are all the people there twice as crazy as a chimney, or was it just the Sugarcubes?

They were inviting me to private parties, into their homes, and as madbomber can attest, their beds.

Are they nuttier than haute couture designs? You tell me.

I'm pretty surprised that my home city's beer has made it to New York!

I was surprised, too. by BadDoggie (6.00 / 1) #8 Wed Aug 18, 2004 at 11:43:23 PM EST
And quite chuffed. 'Tweren't cheap, but the Atlantic Bar in JFK Terminal 9 is ultra posh and terribly expensive. Still, it was cheaper than the gin & <$mixer>s and lasted longer, too.

You have to try Iceland's beer. Egils Pilsner and Viking are quite pleasant, despite the 390-700kr they'll cost you.

Thank god for that by nebbish (3.00 / 0) #20 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 02:08:44 AM EST
I was starting to worry that I was unwittingly caught up in some sort of conspiracy to take over the internet and fill it with whippets or something.

Icelandic by spiralx (6.00 / 1) #14 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 01:10:15 AM EST
Did you know the written language has barely changed in hundreds of years? Modern Icelanders can pretty much read stuff written in Viking times...

Yep by BadDoggie (6.00 / 1) #17 Thu Aug 19, 2004 at 01:22:45 AM EST
And if you take a close look at the language, you see why we all decided to scrap it for a newer model.

I can the people who designed the language now...
