New blog feature....

By Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 02:41 PM EST

I've made the "reply" box draggable. You can move it around if you like, so that you can see what is underneath. Try it, you may like it.

There are  - loading -  comments....

Looks pretty slick, Andrew. Nicely done.

Even more than the draggability, I like the semi-transparency.
Excellent. I plan to add some more controlls for that.By Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 05:08 PM EST
Today I spent a good deal of time adding code to prevent embedded scripting and
html codes in this form.

I hope the interface continues to improve. There have been a few bugs to work
out over the last few days.

I'm with Ben. The transparency is what makes this a great feature. Nicely

Very nice Andrew. I love the transparency when you drag it around. Maybe you
can show us all how you did this :-)
It's the only feature on the site I didn't write myselfBy Andrew Pollack on 11/07/2006 at 09:10 PM EST
I usually do everything from scratch. It's a learning process. In this case,
I used a script library called "" that has a reasonable license
and use policy, excellent functionality, and so far very good cross platform

Once installed, I make this draggable with -1- line of code.....

n = new Draggable('blogCommentEntryArea');

Man, that's cool! Could you arrange to have some Hendrix or Iron Butterfly
play when you do the transparency? It would complete the mood ;-)

That is very cool. I like it more than the inline comment forms.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
