The AJA TWiki Server at
Bookmark this URL, because there ain't a link to it at
A few years back, the sainted Andreas Dieberger set up a wiki server for
the AJA. It was a great help for planning the Groundhog Day Jugglers
Festival. It kept email traffic down on this list, kept all discussions
preserved so you could follow them from start to finish, and let us
communicate in a new and effective way. Alas, it was only a research
project and it went away after a few months. Ever since then, I've
wanted a wiki of my own. Now I'm opening a wiki up to the AJA again, but
this one won't go away any time soon.
If you don't remember or weren't around when we had our wiki, you might
not know how a wiki server works. It looks just like a web server that
you can look at with your favorite browser, except that each web page
has a button that says "Edit" on the bottom. Press that button to change
any page & save it back to the server for others to view. If you want
to create a brand new page on the server, edit an existing page and put
in a word in WikiNotation (an initial capital letter followed by mixed
case letters), and the word will have a "?" after it when you save the
page back. Click on that "?", and you're editing your brand-new page.
Simple. Plenty of documentation is available on the AJA TWiki to help
you understand the other cool things you can do with it.
Alas, I've set this server up with authentication, which means you'll
need to enter a username & password to edit (not to view) pages. The
anonymous user is TWikiGuest, password "guest". Register yourself by
flunking the authentication
(that is, press "Cancel" when your browser asks for a username and
password). Choosing a secure password is less important than figuring
out a memorable one, since the authentication I'm using is itself not
very secure. Use your last name reversed or the name of the street
where you live rather than your bank PIN or the root password to your
PC. Your password is not stored in clear text, so I can only reset it,
not tell you what it is.
If you want to play with a TWiki without messing stuff up, there's a
test web at http://tomshiro.org/cgi-bin/twiki/view/Test/WebHome. You can
see the other webs available here in the upper right corner of every
TWiki page. If you've read this far and think wikis might be very K00L,
you should take a look at the Ur-wiki at http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki, and
the TWiki web at http://twiki.sourceforge.net
