Election Day

I tried to install a Wiki this afternoon, for organizing the work I’m doing for Professor Lorenz. I tried PhpWiki, MoinMoin and PmWiki.

In the end, I chose PmWiki, cuz it’s so much easier to install than the others. The rest of them are a mess.

There was a scare just now. All my entries disappeared. I thought I had messed up the MySQL database and lost all my entries. I was just about to start re-importing the old entries from LiveJournal, but I popped into #wordpress and asked for some help. Turns out it was a simple cookie/cache problem. Whew!

Here’s a link to My Wiki.

    Media Wiki is a synch to install, although it isn’t so easy to customize. That’s what drives wikipedia.
