The biggest issue I see for Radio, obviously, is that the style there is to have many blog entries on one page for the day. Permalinks are anchors within those pages. However, I haven't seen browsers reporting the post-anchor-hash info for referrals. At first though, one would need to have Radio spew blog entries into individual files to make this JS linkback scheme work at per-entry granularity. Otherwise, I'd love to see this work for Radio. I'd also love to see it woven with community server services.
A few brief musings on the referrers script itself:
- Hmm, haven't seen cgi-lib.pl used since my Perl 4 and pre-CGI.pm days. I'd forgotten how serviceable the thing still is.
get_page_title(). It's a start on what I was musing about over here.
- I want to steal this, maybe transliterate it into PHP (since my webhost frowns on my CGIs now), and hook it up to a MySQL database. Stephen doesn't want to host the world's referers, but I wonder how mad my host will get if I open mine up. :) Would make for some neat data to draw maps with, but probably shouldn't do things to make myself an even more annoying band practicing neighbor.
