Quote from: Pale FireI'm a little confused here by the entries you wrote up Kester.
Quote from: Pale FireEditing and writing up definitions of terms is kind of uninteresting to me before we have a program working. I can accept the role of making sure everyone has something to write and nag if they don't finish it, but first there has to be that cgi program.
Quote from: Pale FireOk, so sure, we could put a forum which is only definitions and stuff, but that is hideously impractical for someone who wants to look up more than one definition. I'd say make a program for it.
Quote from: Pale FireBut as I said: I'm still waiting for the admins to decide what they want...
Quote from: Jonathan WaltonHell, you wouldn't even need CGI. You could write this this up completely in ASP pages and VBscript, pulling the information out of an MS Access database (or whatever kind you wanted to use; I'm most familiar with Access). You could even add data through submittable forms and have them stuck into the database, retrievable by the next person to use it.
Quote from: Jonathan WaltonHell, _I_ could set this up, with the little knowledge I've gained from CS 339 this semester. All I'd need is a list of the fields people wanted in the database and I could have it up and running as long as there was a server available that supported that stuff.
Quote from: AdamJust to be pedantic, because I am - ASP is just another method of programming CGI [Common Gateway Interface] scripts.
