Using a blogging client with this site?

I know that in theory, Drupal can be configured to allow the use of normal blogging clients (that support the MetaWebLog API, for instance) to post to the site.

I'm trying to figure out how to post via client, and I can't tell if it's my client support, my personal account config here, or the site-wide Drupal config that's causing it not to work.

Anyone know?

Laws of online world design - what's your favorite?

An entry on Raph Koster's blog reminded me of his page of The Laws of Online World Design.

There is some very good and serious wisdom there for people starting new MUSHes. Go read it, and then, if you've got a second, reply here and tell us all which of these Laws you consider most important, striking, or otherwise which one most speaks to you as a musher or mush admin.

What would you teach a group of 11 year old kids about text based games - part 4

part 1 part 2 part 3

We began our explorations of MUSHes today. In a nutshell, the activity was slightly disappointing, but I learned something important (especially at the end of the class).

Fuel-less Society

There are a gazillion different organizations and other entities which are recruiting ideas for how to solve global warming, dependency on fossil fuels, etc.

In the United States, we keep hearing this phrase "reduce dependency on foreign oil" (T. Boone Pickens seems to adopted this as his motto for promoting his wind and natural gas "plan"). This phrase is doublespeak for "don't stop giving ME your money, just stop giving it to THEM". It has VERY LITTLE to do with solving the actual problem: DEPENDENCY ON NON-RENEWABLE RESOURCES.
