I’m still working the bugs out of a couple of little things.

First up is the comment system. Test postings showed that it’s working exactly as it’s supposed to but there’s the little detail that the link you click on to get to the comment form is not the whole “Blogkom” ents: business. It’s just the number in () that indicate how many comments have been posted about a particular post. I’m going to spend some more time tomorrow looking over the Blogkomm code to see if I can change that into either a comment button or at least a larger link who’s purpose is a little more obvious.

The Second item is the .htaccess file. I’m trying to work out the correct syntax for a redirect line (ideally using wildcards) that will redirect all requests for *.html files to thier *.php equivalents with a HTTP 301 “permanent redirect” so that any bookmarks made for a .html file will still work. This isn’t exactly important, since this site is new and readers and the SE’s have only begun to notice it, but I’d still like to learn a bit about what the .htaccess file can be used for and how to do it right.

In other news, I’ve bought a new motherboard finally, an AsRock K7VM3. God willing it’ll get here quickly, be a nice easy install, and the 900Mhz AMD Duron chip I have in my desk drawer will prove to still work (I expect it will, I’ve been told that AMD chips are pretty tough). It’s been roughly two years of running a 266Mhz Pentium with 64mb Ram and I can hardly wait to have something that will actually be able to run Wheel of Time again. Not to mention booting up in less than 10 minutes, having a web browser or any other program start up without draggin everything else to a standstill.
