Tearing down fences around DecafbadWiki
Oh, and I bit the bullet and turned off the authentication requirement on the wiki. I've decided that ultimately I agree that LoginsAreEvil. I didn't really want to put up fences, or raise the laziness threshold. I mostly wanted to identify people, but I was mistaken. Now, I'd rather AvoidIllusion.
There still are a few fences, however. My reasoning is that my use of this wiki slides into the realm of cheap content management, and I don't prefer public input on certain things. A few pages are access controlled, such as the wiki's front page and my home page. For this purpose, there's an alternate password-protected set of wiki commands. The non-authenticated are under /twiki/bin whereas the authenticated set are at /twiki/sbin. Just as easy as putting an 's' in the URL.
Access to the authenticated commands doesn't necessarily mean you get to edit everything though. :) That's access control for you.
Eventually, maybe I'll drop the access controls too. I was also thinking of moving out of TWiki for another wiki implementation like MoinMoin, too. Still tinkering.
