|[Motd] ANN v2 pre-release 10
|Posted on 05-Mar-2000 09:18 GMT by Christian Kemp
The behaviour of at least one individual has forced me to implement
a new feature in pre-release 10; or rather disable an existing
feature. It is now no longer possible to use HTML tags in comments,
since this individual repeatedly abused this, and I can't tolerate

|CK, just a quick enhancement request. Is there any chance that you can make the logo at the top right of the page always link to the home page?

|How about disallowing it only for anonymous users?
Btw: Some weeks ago I sent you several emails with suggestions, but you didn't reply to any of them, nor did I see any of my suggestions implemented. Did you actually receive the letters?
P.S. At this comments page, the article title for each box seems to be missing.

That would require me to write a user management system. :)

Yes, I received them. I read them. I considered what you wrote.
It is 22:17 right now. For the past three hours, I've been working non-stop on
another of my projects. There's lots of work to do for that page, too. ANN
would need a few weeks of time to implement all the features I planned for it.
fla.lu is desperately needing an update. gstbk.com is far from complete.
I didn't even start working on chartsurfer.com. yweb.net is empty. My personal
homepage (ckemp.com) needs a rewrite. What am I trying to say? That my
weekend is almost over again and that I didn't even cover 10% of what I wanted
to do. I will, eventually, get around to implementing things that people
suggest. And reply to their mails. But right now, I'm in a position where it
is impossible for me to do anything right away, nor within an acceptable period

I'm aware of that, too. The comments script is due for a full rewrite
"sometime soon", so I didn't really want to fix this and then rewrite it a
short time later.
I'm working 40 hours a week. I have a commute of over 80 minutes daily. I
train for athletics six times a week, up to around 2 hours each. I have not
one but several other websites that I need to take care of. I also have a
need to relax every now and then and turn by back to anything computer and/or
I normally work one or two hours per day on ANN just to keep it updated. Last
month, ANN made me less than (an estimated) 400$. If it paid $2000, I could
run this as a fulltime business and work on it with more energy, and more time on my hands. If this was a fulltime business, I could justify spending more
time on ANN than I do right now. But as things are here and now, I guess you
all have to live with delays concerning the addition of new features and the
fixing of not-so-obvious bugs and errors.
End of rant. :)

Unfortunately, national "elite" and international "elite" are two vastly
different things... My personal best on the 200m so far is 21"58. Required
for Sydney 2000 would be a time of 20"90. Even though I hope to run faster
this year, and am training hard for it, there's still a large gap between
those two times. But if you were to aks this question for 2004, I might
