i am looking for testers and feedback on my project.


true testers and real feed back only please.

here is my project site.
http://members.cox.net/joes_box/

the program is a perl/cgi script that runs on *nix only as of now but i am looking to port to windows soon. This program is a Journal (hense the name, Journal 0.1.0) that allows you to keep a daily log of your thoughts.

It's kinda hard to download:

"The requested URL /joes_box/journal_0.1.0.zip was not found on this server."

well, I don't use any of those directories. How about a set of vars where we can define the path to the files?

from the get-go. I fixed the index page to point to the right place, but then, I get my error 500 page on trying to load the journal.cgi.

I ran it through "perl -w" and got:

syntax error at journal.cgi line 82, near "){"
Execution of journal.cgi aborted due to compilation errors.

Hey, I just fixed it. You left out the spaces in some of the "if ()(this space) { }" statements.

It looks good, too. Nice and clean, and simple.

To make it work under more situations, I made some changes on lines 214, 217, 252, and 324. I changed the paths on journal.txt to relative (./journal.txt). I also fixed the spaces, re-zipped it. here it is. I guess you could call it v.0.1.1. I also changed all of the urls relative to /.

Green_dragon37, I tried your link and got this:
Quote:
Error 404 -- Not Found
The page you requested, journal-0.1.1.tar.bz2, is not here. Check the link and try again.

Request: journal-0.1.1.tar.bz2
Will the program run on a stand alone desktop with no apache or server stuff at all?
