First trials with Coreblog

towards a multilingual coreblog

First trials with Coreblog

These are my first trials with Coreblog.

Technical purposes:

  1. to transform this weblog into a multilingual blog using Localizer, that nice Zope product. An approach may be passing the locales as a category, that's way there are 3 categories on this blog: eu (basque), es (spanish) and en (you know). I hope to advance little by little.
  2. produce a localised basque version of Coreblog. Or something like that.

Personal purposes:

  1. publish and collect in a single place things I post for several lists and websites in different languages.
  2. experiment with mailing-list and blogging integration. There's a veteran Basque mailing list that I love, Eibartarrak, and I feel like it needs to evolve towards blogging and XML Feeds and maybe the semantic web of the future...

Moblog problems at Zettai

The moblog feature seems to work, but not when attaching a picture. This blog at manterola.org is hosted on Zettai.net as for the POP email account, I have tried with a manterola.org address, also served by Zettai, as well as with another external POP account.

In both cases, messages without attachments go finely into the blog. But not when attaching a picture, this error raises:

Error Type: IndexError Error Value: list index out of range

Another difference. To moblog from the zettai-based email account, I have to select the APOP option in the settings. In the non-zettai email account, it doesn't work with APOP. I had to unselect it.

Larry Trask has died

A great linguist, a friend of our language, Basque

I've just known that Larry Trask died last Saturday. I know how much he liked to take part in sci.lang and I decided to post this here. Seems he was very ill since time ago, but every time he felt OK he used to write here and there, always with interesting points.

I knew Trask by email from the time of Basque-L, probably the first Basque resource of Internet. He was very much appreciated among Basque internet users. His work, History of Basque, is brilliant.
