hoodwink.d enhanced


Wonderfully Desolate #

by why in cult

Part of hoodwink.d is moving above ground. Namely, the new forum: Wasteland. This forum will revolutionize blank HTML.

See, as rewriting the web catches on, we’re really going to be glad for blank pages. If you don’t want to use Wasteland as a forum, please be my guest and use Greasemonkey/MouseHole/et al. to build a videoblogging service in its place.

Behold, a fox, borne aloft in the title bar, watches over a grumpy grey monkey.

The fox will defend you and weep tears of purple and cyan (but monkey’s fur remains bleak until we put on our hoods).

A bleak snowstorm of blankness with unseen white animals walking about.

I do sob .. Can’t reach hoodwink.d from my corporate network :( Any plan to make it easily reachable from this kind of environments ?? :(

mouseHole seems to be working (I can see winks, etc), but going to any Wasteland url just results in a blank page, though viewing page source shows me all of the posts I’m not seeing.

I think I get the point of Wasteland (posting winks on blank pages – cool!), but I’m obviously missing something here – do I need to install a new script?

Okay, there we go. Try again, the new user.rb hadn’t been released yet.

Thanks for the reply why. I installed the latest user.rb listed on hoodwink.d. I can now see the Wasteland main page, but choosing a topic results in a blank page and the following error in mouseHole:

c15233 – - [05/Oct/2005:10:28:08 Central Daylight Time] “GET http://wasteland.ho bix.com/Refinement HTTP /1.1” 200 1636 http://wasteland.hobix.com/ → http://wasteland.hobix.com/Refinement [2005-10-05 10:28:08] ERROR LoadError: No such file to load—htree

I’m running Ruby 1.8.2 with mouseHole 1.2.

BTW , thanks for all the great stuff you have been doing with Ruby, and for taking the time to share it with Ruby n00bs like myself!

I am having the same problem as foomin, purrhaps we should upgrade to 1.8.3?

said on 05 Oct 2005 at 12:27

erhm… nope, same error

AH hah!!! The win32 EXE is borkered!

By upgrading to 1.8.3 the source could be successfully activated (after copying over the dlls from the win32 installer directory of course)

This fixed wasteland AND brought syntax highlighting to MouseCommand (for the wee rubyists with the Syntax gem)

Yeah, it’s an encoding issue between Tidy and REXML . Tidy is faster than HTree, but Tidy is much more strict. I just need to dig in.

Thanks Mister Cat! I was wondering if it was a 1.8.3 related issue, but have not had time to do a new installation and stuff (they actually expect me to do work here! Sheesh).
