Had an interesting evening yesterday. I was so pumped up about writing a story and then by Tyran’s and Greg’s comments about wanting to do serialized stories themselves that I started work on Blog 4.0 :p I got the reverse order entries thing done pretty fast but while I was at it, I decided to move quite a bit of the global options to the journal level so that you can have different settings for each journal. I had all of that done when Tyran suggested that I have a way to link to the previous and next journal entries and so Iadded two new tags – < $BlogArchivePrev> and < $BlogArchiveNext> and those work pretty OK except of course when you have no previous entries or next entries <vbg> I guess I could try to put in code to detect that and if so, point to the main file but that seems like a lot of work … so I’m not sure what I’m going to do about that – for the moment I’m leaving it as it is …

I had thought that I had most of the stuff done for 4.0 when I went through an e-mail from Bauke Schildt who suggested about four or five new features/options and since then I’ve been e-mailing back and forth with him and he’s managed to add a couple of more items to the list :-) So looks as if 4.0 will be a while coming but then again since 3.7 was just released, I’m sure you can hold on <vbg>

I need to get a new template done and get started on publishing that story that I was talking about but there’s so much other stuff to be done – Blog, the Data Conversion Utility since a lot is changing for Blog 4.0, work .. ah well, that’s always how it is, isn’t it? :-)
