Does anyone out there know of blogging software that can be used to integrate a simple blog on an asp-based website? Surely some of you know! I asked before, but am assuming the question was buried in a larger post.

I'm hoping for a bit of advice. My mother has a website and you should all go there. It is a website devoted to "the arts" and I think quite a few of you would find various aspects engaging. There are sections for film, fine arts, music, language arts, literature and mythology.

She's interested in integrating a blog, but doesn't know what blogging software exists that would allow her to do this easily. This is an asp-based site.


Neat tech

This is the first time I've ever been glad I listened to the fund-raising drivel on NPR. One of the enticements they're offering is a nifty little bit of technology.

It is a flash drive with a button and probably a microphone or perhaps just an internal clock. I'm guessing as to how this works because they certainly didn't explain it. If you're listening to NPR and you hear a story you like and want to go back to later, you push the button. When you next to go a computer, insert the flash drive and you get a list of bookmarks that will take you to the stories you wanted to listen to again or read about on-line.

I figure they're managing this in one of two ways.

  1. They're transmitting the url during the story on a frequency you can't hear in computer code and when you press the button it records that bookmark
  2. When you press the button it makes a note of the time and when you go on-line it matches that time to the station log to see what they were playing at the time and gives you the bookmark.

  1. Transmission Method

    • Positive

      1. Is more accurate
      2. You don't have to go to their site before you find out what the bookmarks are.

    • Negative

      1. There are more technical hurdles
      2. There's more to set up and maintain
      3. Harder to move to other stations in the NPR network

  2. Clock Method

    • Positive

      1. Flash drive is simpler
      2. No transmission needed
      3. Easy to pass to other stations

    • Negative

      1. More likely to have mismatches if button is pushed at end or beginning of story
      2. Must go to NPR site to see bookmarks

Either way it is a cool bit of technology. I'm hoping it uses the transmission method 'cause I think that's a little cooler.

This is my optomistic view, based on polling I've seen, trends and my opinion on what Bob Barr and turnout will change.

EDIT: [ profile] allegedly informs me that what I posted looks different from her friends list.

My Prediction is Obama: 383, McCain 155.

Before I get too involved in describing the problem I'm having, let me ask if anyone out there might know what I'm talking about.

I'm attempting to enable PHP under IIS.

When I try to run my (prewritten) php page, I get an error of
PHP Warning: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\HRWiki\pmwiki\pmwiki.php on line 535

I may be setting up the Internet Guest Account improperly. It is pretty clearly a permissions problem, but I'm not sure what I need to do.

Before I go describing this in more detail, does anyone think they can help?

1) Would any of you be interested in a part time position (maybe full time) as a help desk person? You'd primarily be screening calls for the support team where I work. You'd likely also get to learn quite a bit. If you personally wouldn't be interested, do any of you know a student that'd like this job as a sumer job?

2) I've only created wikis on public systems that do the hosting and creation for you. Do any of you know how to set up a wiki on your own server? How hard is it? Do you have a resource that'd show me how to do it? What does it cost and what hardware would I need?
