Category Trackback tags plugin

A simple (by which I mean, mostly copied and pasted from the MT source) plugin to make categories first-class Trackback citizens, adding the four Trackback-related tags that entries have and categories lacked.

Trapped in a vicious circle

Sunday, May 23rd, 2004

Remarkable how simple things like needing a permalink to put in a .zip, but needing the .zip uploaded before I can create the entry to get the permalink, can trap me in a vicious circle of reading weblogs and playing video games instead of actually doing something.

Sunday, May 9th, 2004

Just when you’d completely forgotten about them, Blogger relaunches with actual new features! Features, I say. One of them is comments! Say goodbye, dotcomments support! Yes, I’m over-excited!

Think simple. Spam different.

What better spam for a bunch of Mac-lovers who’ve never seen a site that’s too dumb to deliver text/html? Alexander Morozov’s comment spam just keeps getting better and better.
