More News Updates
Posted by Magnus on 5 August 2000, 14:57 GMT

After the last update of the news system, there have been several requests for new features in the news system, to make it possible to "undo" some of the changes made last time. I have now implemented many new changes, the most noticeable being:

  • An option in Account Preferences to chose how many comments to show on a page.
  • Links on the bottom of each page pointing to all other pages, not just Prev and Next.

There are still a couple of small things left, such as linking back to the page one 'left' when posting a comment. I will look at fixing those as well :-)

Update: Ok, now that linking works as well.

I'm one of the 75%! Thanks for listening to the comments posted on that survey about the news system. These features were *REALLY* wanted (as shown by the 50 posts all requesting the same thing :-)

Thank you for adding the option for "All On One Page". I've got a DSL line and there's not much of a wait for pages with hundreds of comments, so I don't mind.

Hooray for broadband! ISDN is the poor man's broadband, but it still loads these bulky pages just fine.

What exactly is ISDN? I've heard of it all over the place, but I never knew exactly what it was...

Integrated Services Digital Network.

Old-school digital lines, initially intended for small business. It just so happens that the Disabato casbah has one too.

It allows you to use a voice phone (with three separate lines!), fax machine, modem, and (in my case) a 128 kilobit ISDN router), all on the same line.

Versatile!

Except with the dedicated lines and all that, ISDN is almost always more expensive than DSL...

The router (at $300) is expensive (duh), but we only pay $30 per month. That's less than DSL goes for in these parts.

That is a good idea. I still like to see every comment at once.

Actually, those are now 493 and 418 respectively.


When putting up the stats, don't forget the survey "What is your gender?" with 416 comments (just two behind) and "Would yuo buy another TI calculator?" with 406.

Then there is the "Game ideas" in programming which has totalled 785 comments so far.
