In reference to Ricardo's Javascript fix for OS X on the bookmarklet thing: it doesn't work, and isn't supposed to work in the first place. I don't know what the problem is but one of the guys at the ADC told me that IE doesn't support this JavaScript too well. Maybe it's because I have the beta.

Anyway, his suggested fix was similar to the one I sent to Michel, however it also doesn't work too well... I sent an e-mail to Microsoft. We'll see.

Doesn't work? What happens? On 3 of "my" computers it works fine...

I think I know what happened Ian, the board sometimes strip some characters out so probably you are using a crippled version.
I've made a txt file with the code available at http:/lomoblog.com/bm_mac.txt.sit
Download, copy paste it to somewhere near the others on the b2profile page and try it.
btw, it's not a OS X fix, it's an IE fix. It works both on IE5 on OS9 and on IE5.1.1 (or whatever version comes with 10.1) on OS X.
What beta version of IE do you use?

you aren't using OS X 10.1. i've got two ie browsers one is the current 5.1.3, the other happens to be an internal seed.

Yes, I'm using OS X 10.1.
According to the "about IE" screen, I'm using 5.1.2 so your 5.1.3 copy shold work properly. Anyway, try the bookmarklet on your IE on Classic too.
As I said before, the code on the txt link above should work on both IE for OS X and OS 9.

Ever wanted to try some other browser ? IE is known to be very non-standard and different from version to version and platform to platform.
Use a standards-compliant one that at least has the decency to support the same stuff on all platforms... Why does the name Mozilla comes to mind ? : )

I actually like IE very much. It's very elegant and stable. NS6.1 is nice but it's not "there" yet.. maybe in a .x upgrade =)
I do surf a lot with Opera, second best browser avaliable for OS X, IMHO =)
As for the IE bookmarklets, I was trying to help Ian because they are working on a lot of different macs, no reason to not work on his.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
