Site overhaul continues

If you've followed my posts lately, you've noticed that I haven't been posting much on my regular topics, because I've been overhauling the back end for the site.
The overhaul wasn't meant to be visible (yet). As I've gone through the process I've screwed up a few things (that is, I've written a few bugs). So if you've been paying attention, you've probably seen a few test posts come and go.
The biggest change to the back-end code is that I've hooked up MSHTML to do HTML parsing, and I've moved the post content out of the database and into the file system. That's been fun, for the most part.
What hasn't been fun is dealing with the bugs I've introduced, and there were quite a few of them. Probably the biggest bug had to do with editing posts online. Creating posts wasn't a problem. Editing them after they existed turned out to be totally messed up. The content of the posts would be duplicated.
That turned out to be because the "clear" method on the "document" object isn't supported in the current release of MSHTML. Fortunately, "InnerHTML" is settable, and that fixed that bug.
So I'm back to posting regularly now, or at least I should be. On that note, this is your open trackbacks post for Tuesday, January 30, 2007.
If you have something interesting you'd like to share, feel free to link it here and leave a trackback.
Just remember the trackback policy.
For the best exposure, go to the blogger's oasis and use the linkfest chooser to choose the posts you'd like to hook up with.

Sorry about that bernie. Your entry does indeed reference the permalink. I'm going to have to look into that. The HTML parser method of validating trackback pings is much stricter than the old mechanism I was using. I can manually add the trackback.
Angel responded with:

Layla responded with:
