    1. Ghost TWiki

      So, I've got a freshly updated TWiki install here on my site, and I don't know what to do with it.

      For years, it's been a static capture to satisfy the occasional request for something I wrote back in the 2002-2005 period when I was serially-enthused about wikis.

      But, fast forward to a month or two ago when I attended a Wiki Wednesday event. I got a brief burst of enthusiasm after seeing what people at KQED are doing with it and after meeting Peter Thoeny for the first time. After getting home, I downloaded a fresh copy of TWiki, discovered that my years-old data files still worked, and got it up and running.

      And that's it — I'm still not using it. Not that it isn't great software: I use TWiki all the time at work, but just not for my own stuff anymore. I wonder if I should revert back to the static capture rather than invite spammers and random garbage?
