Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Russell said some pretty nice things about Dot-Net in his most recent anti-Microsoft rant, take a look:
This sounds like a pretty bad situation for us Java advocates. Versions of our favorite open source Java tools are being ported to C#. The GNOME folks are working feverishly to port C# and the CLR to UNIX. To top it all, the chairman of our revered Jakarta Project is a Dot-Net blogger.My thoughts on this? Nobody knows who what technologies will win out in the short term or in the long term so my advice to you is: hedge your bets.
Roller 0.9.6's referer tracker already ignored hits from pages in the same weblog, now Lance has added an
ignoreHosts option so that a Roller admin can configure Roller to ignore hits from different hosts. That is cool, but I want a little mre control over what should be ignored. For example, I got hits today from
file://<some file path>/penis.htm today. Ouch!
I think the Roller referer tracker needs a both
ignoreContaining parameters (each being a list). You could use ignoreStartsWith to ignore hits from your own host, other hosts, and from protocols such as
mailto:. You could use ignoreContaining to ignore hits coming in from URLs containing certain keywords.
