Latewire: HD

Daniel Roe
Poster: Daniel Roe @ Mon Mar 02, 2009 11:05 pm

If you were on the Latewire tonight, you may have noticed everything went totally bat-shit for about 10 minutes and a faint, panicky voice in the background screaming "SHIT, SHIT, SHIT." There is an explanation for this: Due to a gaping, Goatse-caliber hole in the security for the last CMS, we were forced to upgrade.

You have NO FREAKING IDEA how hard it was to make the new CMS look this ugly. I worked about 15 hours over last two days on this. You all can blow me later.

We have a ton more features, but we also lost a few in the transition because I basically needed to get it done today (attention span => episode of Fraggle Rock).

All the RSS feeds work!... for the most part. Due to a strange parse error in firefox, the RSS system had to be neutered with regards to HTML... sort of... other readers still parse the HTML, but I did a voodoo dance and convinced Firefox not to. This is good, because firefox was skull-fucking the brains out of the feed on the beta site.

We have feeds for EVERYTHING now, including individual users. Each user also has a latewire with JUST their articles (click on a name). Each user also has a RSS feed to go with it, but I haven't put the hyperlinks in (hint: mine is here).

Finally, we've done away with "featured latewires" and divided it up into "best of latewire" and "latewire series" or some shit like that. The "best of" series consists of articles hand-picked by administrators. The ones here tonight were haphazardly chosen by me as a demo. You can actually click on the "best of" title and go to a page populated only by those articles. Theoretically, you could just subscribe to the "best of" FEED and never come to the site except to see the truly inspired material (dick move).

Special thanks to Deadcow who came up with the logo idea (...and the logo). No thanks to anybody else.

Enough on all the technical BS. I plan to do another Poisoned Foods this week or next, for sure. Keep on the feeds, we're about to kick it back up again.

There, reverted.

Fun fact: The font was actually built with pirated software on Hank's iMac 9 years ago.
