Out & About
It was fun to see the Trotts in person Thursdsay night at their presentation in Evanston. A whole cadre of Chicago bloggers were out in force. There's various reports of the event, many of them cited here. While the presentation didn't tell us much we didn't already know, the promise of future upgrades gave me some hope that we might be able to use MT effectively for the long-postponed QAX Project.
Day off on Friday for some long-postponed down time. I found what every woman wants at a bargain: cashmere sweatpants. Perfect for lounging and hibernating.
Of course, it's warm and sunny today, so this purchase was not all that well timed. Gotta get E. moving so we can enjoy this early taste of spring.

Cashmere sweatpants sound pornographic, they sound so comfortable.
Here's something I've never mentioned before: but I wanna be involved with the QAX project. Put me down. Okay? Okay. Enjoy the sunshine.
oh yeah? multiple authors? post-to-approval? puhleeeeze?
Laure: Good, because I already had your name on the list to be drafted for the QAX stuff.
Mike has already been drafted, of course.
So far we have come up with some cool stuff, courtesy of a scrapbook maintained by some radio folk down in IN. Lots of clippings about the station's fall-out with IUSA, for example. And coverage of the notorious "Duck-destroying street dance" of the early '80s.
Yes mike, they do plan to have workflow as well as approval. Better support for photos, and some of us learned what this Trackback thing is for. Supposedly you can check the support forum at their website for the list of features.
From my notes...
"Features discussed in PR on site. Photo integration, improved author management and workflow (including groups, streamed workflow), customised entry fields, comment/posting registration, heirarchical categories."
They said "late Summer" but it really sounded more like 3Q2003; they don't have pricing or upgrade pricing or support futures for <Pro sorted out yet.
I looked at the feetch list. No schedding. folks have been yelling for this since day one, so I must presume not addressing it in the list means it won't be there.
Also, I think it's absolutely necessary to enable anon, no reg-process post-to-approval, primarily becasue of my experience watching percentiles of click-though events happen - when your job is to organize the cheese, you have to be willing to look at every piece of it!
