So, now we have the final U in CRUD done, and I can finally edit posts. YOU can't edit comments yet, but that's coming soon, probably tomorrow.

That's fun. EDITING ROCKS! It's also a really neat macro that makes it pretty easy to do SQL update statements.

Here's another neat thing: Basically, I use the exact same statement to create and update a post:

(update-record "Posts" Id PosterId PostDate PostSubject PostContent) ; It's the U in CRUD!

(create-record "Posts" Id PosterId PostDate PostSubject PostContent) ; It's the C in CRUD!

There's a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes to translate the above into two very different SQL statements. Basically the Id in the first is to CHECK for Id's value, and in the second statement it is to SET Id to that value. I like the symmetry,

I do however believe that most people put too much stock in
these things because in the age of information with the
present technology they are illusory protections. Dedicated
efforts with cameras, recording devices, shills, informants,
stings, blackmail <of others if necessary> and such render
most everyone <especially those with something to conceal>
vulnerable to co-option or setup for a fall.

yeah time is way off. On completely the wrong timezone. Have to fix timezones somehow.

I can't edit either! I'm still writing that part!

It's apparently on UTC. So it's the correct time if you happen to live in Greenwich.

Indeed!

I've changed the way the comment button works so it jumps directly to the most recent comment. This should make it easier to get the last word in. :)

Also when you add a comment it jumps as well. Saves on scrolling.
