Welcome
Russell Degnan

This website has been designed for use by the first-year Planning students at RMIT. The intention is to combine our resources by sharing any books, articles, comments or just thoughts that relate to the course, or to urban planning and design in general.

Not all parts of it are accessible to the wider world; there are assorted functions to create groups for you and your friends, talk about RMIT specific subjects, and to manage your assignments. To use these, and to post messages you need a login; to obtain one, email me.

For those of you on the outside: welcome as well. David of City Comforts has jumped the gun a bit by commenting on my earlier test post, but thankyou. If this blog creates half as much useful content as his own then it will be very fine indeed.

enjoy.

What software are you using?
Did you develop it all yourself or are you using software for all the fancy interactive things (ie. this comment section)?
Aaron Hewett  31st July, 2003 02:19:58  

Re: What software are you using?
Aaron: I designed it myself. It is often easier that way.

On logins. I'll do that right now.

Re: Something's Missing
Sorry Jess, you are quite right.

How about this then

Having problems posting
There are a few bugs. You expect them with all new websites.

I can't seem to be able to post anything. I added a group called "Tales of the City"... I'm bemused as to why I am able to create a group (and delete people from other groups for that matter). I suspect my permissions are incorrect.

I wanted to include the following as the first post for that group...

Subject: Welcome

Message:

No... this isn't a place to discuss that US series about San Francisco.

This message group is for us all to share our stories, poems, etc about our urban environment - be it romantic, cynical, abstract or whatever.

Just because we're planning students doesn't mean we're boring - so GET CREATIVE!

Re: Problems
Aaron, sorry about that, I installed a new bug when I was trying to fix the timezone issue last night. My dev box is broken right now, so everything is being tested live. If you find anything else it's run me an email.

Also, keep in mind that the group you've set up is "invitation only", so you'll need to add people manually (since you are the administrator).

Nice...very nice...
Very nice site, Russ. I'm not sure everyone knows about it though...
