The Daily Ping

The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

PBWiki

I like wikis. They make editing pages easy and are a great tool for quick and dirty collaboration. My department uses them at work to do documentation and my wife and I use one at home for notes and collaborating on shopping lists while we’re at work. They’re nice. And friendly, too.

One worthy of note for those that don’t want to take the time to set up the software to do their own is Check out the PBwiki, the wiki that’s “as easy as making a peanut butter sandwich.” Jelly is extra. It’s a hosted service that’s great for those quick “I need a wiki NOW NOW NOW” moments. C’mon, I know you’ve had one.

So next time you need to make a shopping list or brainstorm ideas with multiple people and you want a record more accessible than e-mail, you certain could do worse than creating a PBwiki.

Cut mine diagonally, please.

http://www.backpackit.com/ is another good one.

I've set up Wikis several times, but they never stick for me.

Peanut butter is sticky, so this one might work better for you.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
