This is a reference to the local bugs on the projects being run here. ?TODO items go elsewhere. Link items to ?done when done.

Just because the content here is largely static, doesn't mean that implementing something like a pingback wouldn't be useful

The pingback support idea is out there on the ikiwiki, but remains unimplemented.

There are many other dynamic features that I kind of want. Javascript for the editing menus, for example. Detection of a handheld, for another.

google is following the the cgi-bin/ikiwiki.cgi links to some extent.

I'd like less of these to leak out...

Link formats are slightly different between markdown and org-mode.

[[][Postcards from the Bleeding Edge]] is how org-protocol stores things.

Markdown wants it where the url is second and the title first, separated by a |.

I'd like a "cite" plugin. The syntax might look like

[[!cite url=the_url author=author """ content """]

and generate output using typographic quotes, and an indent. This is closer to the original dream of transclusion (and I like typographic quotes and have no easy way to generate them from my keyboard) Does this work in ikiwiki: “ this is a typographic quote ”? Answer, it does, but it's not curly in the font I'm currently using. Sigh.

God, this simple thing is subject to major essays on the subject essay 1 essay two, and Joel had a really good rant.

OK, let's try various forms of encoding with this:

Standard ASCII"Hello Double" vs. 'Hello single' vs. it's
HTML named character entity references: “, ”, ‘, and ’.“Hello Double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s
HTML numeric (decimal) character entities for standard values: “, ”, ‘, and ’.“Hello Double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s
HTML numeric (hexadecimal) character entities for standard values: “, ”, ‘, and ’.“Hello Double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s
Embedded UTF-8 Encoding“Hello double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s
Microsoft Non-standard Approach (0x93..0x94, 0x91..0x92); embedded�Hello Double� vs. �Hello single� vs. it�s
Microsoft Non-standard Approach; as decimal numeric character entity (“, ”, etc); charset=utf-8“Hello Double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s

Lets fiddle with styling utf-8 and some fonts “Hello double” vs. ‘Hello single’ vs. it’s.

I'd like to find an easy way to show - in the browser - what IP address I just connected to for the page.

NOT connected from. Not VIA php. Not requiring anything on the server side. I mean, the browser knows it... You'd think this would be available, right? Searching the web, thus far, no luck. Gotta RTFM.

The last time I tried ICP with squid, the encoding of the multicast message was incorrect on the Arm boxes I was using. A x86 ICP message would reliably CRASH the squid server on the arm box.

This is too bad as I envisioned using multicast to connect to multiple squid boxes over the local loop, and they were all going to be arm based.

I can't remember if I filed a bug on it or not.

The biggest problem I've had in ages has been focused on finding a good routing protocol to handle the size of the internal ipv6 network. I settled on babeld eventually, and I'm still far from satisfied with it.

No bootloaders support IPv6 out of the box. It would be nice if instead of coming up on a single fairly well defined IPv4 ( address, that one came up on a well defined local AND WELL defined IPv6, based on the local network or mac address...
