PHP/MySQL Experiments

The Blarg

The Blarg is an experiment in interactive design converging on a Blogging application that is live-to-web. It was written from scratch by wOnko because he wanted a blarging tool and didn't want to use anyone elses (picky bastard), and because it was a nicely contained exercise that might lend itself to instruction.

Original rantings on what the Blarg should look and work like should be read first.

A Blarg is a little like a Blog (weB LOG) but Blarg entries are typified by excessive amounts of blah blah blah and considerable amounts of aaaaarrrggghhh!

Goto the completed Blarg.
