Welcome to the whiteboard. To figure out what this does,
open the test page in several tabs at once, and
try editing in one tab. Then check the other.
About This Service:
- You can use any URL in this directory matching the pattern
"./XXXXXXXXX.wb", ( ./[a-zA-Z0-9._+=-]+\.wb , actually) and you get an
interactive whiteboard you can edit with multiple people.
- Change the extension to ".txt" to get a static version.
- Permanence: *Not* guaranteed to be permanent. However, it *is*
statically stored on the server, so will survive past reboots. The
delete-time right now is set at one year, if you want it deleted
sooner, just erase all text.
- No edit history is kept, so note there is no long-term (or
short-term) guarantee here- anyone with your URL could erase your
work. One workaround is to keep the static link open. Null files and
files under 100 bytes may be deleted sooner.
- The data/ directory will never be publicly browseable - so if your
URL is secret, it is safe from all but the server admin.
This service is run by Richard
Darst, and is not an official Debian service. It should be
considered alpha/beta right now, but stable enough and with a
responsive person to help fix stuff.
I certainly didn't do all of this myself, I just trivially hooked it
together. See http://code.google.com/p/google-mobwrite/
