Introduction: Book writing and a wiki

At the moment I’m writing my second novel (the first one is paused) and I am really euphoric about that! It is every time a really good feeling to see something happen, to see that your own story becomes a life. It is awesome. But there is a big problem. My story is huge (like many other novels) and becomes very complicated over time. Some characters have a background story, some others have special feelings, etc.

Of course you are the author, it is your story, something of your life, so you must know this all from the head. But let’s be honest, this is complete nonsense. Our brain is limited and it would be stupid if we did not take advantage of the available technology.

Today I want to introduce one of the many possibilities. I use it and love it. It is not something new and I can bet that other authors use this technique too. So it is not my technique. Only my idea to introduce it for you Smiley

Let’s start and make our own Wikipedia, but this time only about our own story…

SourceForge and the lost of Hosted Apps

No Piwik, no MediaWiki, no Trac, …

SourceForge is closing his Hosted Apps service: Hosted apps retirement

As a SourceForge fan and user I’m a bit sad but I think it is a right decision. The old hosted apps service never gives you the necessary access and space to do something like to add a new extension into your MediaWiki instance. Now (in fact you could even do it sooner) you can start your own hosted app in your own project-web space. I have done it and merged my old wiki (https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/pear3dengine/) to a new point (http://pear3dengine.sourceforge.net/wiki/).

But there is one very big problem… SourceForge allows only 16 Mb PHP memory space… this is not enough and the reason for the bad links [1] in the wiki. Hopefully they promised to work on the MediaWiki issues. So I’m looking forward!

PS: The old wiki links are now broken, I will change every link to the new url soon.
