My friend, Wiebe, keeps his website in Subversion. (Always keep your project files in version management or you'll be sorry.) He used to manually track the date with the last significant change in each file (because who cares about typos, right?). But, of course, he kept forgetting to update this when he actually made such changes. So, he decided that he wanted to publish the full SVN log for each page.

I like GeSHi (enough even to have written a language file for it). For ages now, I've used a WordPress plugin by Dan Peverill. But for as long as I've been using the plugin, I've been looking to get rid of it.

Many X apps these days require a system tray. GNOME and KDE have system tray applets enabled in their panels by default. WindowMaker doesn't have a panel. It supports DockApps, which are, of course, much cooler. :-P

During the ten years of my love-hate relationship with X-Windows, I've often tried and enjoyed using full-fledged desktop environment (starting with KDE and later sometimes GNOME too), but, given time, I always gravitate back to WindowMaker.

Another one of those I-wish-I-had-blogged-about-this moments: I wanted to bulk-edit some pages in my Dutch Hardwood Wiki and I knew I had previously done some scripting using a FUSE filesystem for MediaWiki. However, I didn't remember the name of the filesystem I had used before. Searching for "mediawiki fuse" didn't help in any way.
