February Bongusta news
Bongusta now aggregates 33 phlogs. Two of them have no post in 2018,
other are quite frequently updated - for sure, there were no better
times for gopher in this millennium than right now.
To be able to add SparcIPX's phlog to the list, I had to modify the
code a bit. That particular phlog has the URL in following format:
... I'm sure, you see the pattern.
Yes, there is "Last Updated" in the top-level phlog menu, but I don't
like the idea of Bongusta being dependent on whether author updated or
forgot to update such notice (and some phlogs even don't have it).
I implemented a mechanism for parsing phlogs with variable URLs right
from the beginning, but until now Bongusta could only go through maps
with year or month number in the URL. SparcIPX (obviously) has a month
name there, so Bongusta needed to learn that as well. Now it does.
More changes are to come in March. Stay tuned.
