This is just an entry for test the Wikilog extension in this wiki. I also includes the old short news. Read on ... :)
“A bliki is a web based collaboration and publishing system that marries the concepts and benefits of a blog based publishing software and a wiki based collaboration system.” (Blog + Wiki = Bliki, retrieved 19:20, 25 June 2009 (UTC)).
“A bliki (also known as a wikiLog, wog, wikiWeblog, wikiblog, or bloki), is combination of the two Internet concepts of a blog and wiki. It combines features from both: as with blogs, posts or articles appear in reverse chronological order on the front page, with the most recent one at the top; but editing is done in wiki style, with a version history for each page and special markup tags. As with wikis, the fact that a site is a bliki does not mean that any reader can edit any page; editing permission is at the discretion of the administrator(s)”.

3 Old News
- April 2009. Upgraded to Mediawiki 1.31.5 (db03554). Added the book collection extension made by PediaPress.com. Please don't abuse this feature and consider buying a book from this friendly company. I may remove this extension again until we get a much faster server. Creating a large book really puts a big strain on the CPU (load averages above 10).
- Sept. 27 2008. Added a file cache and re-enabled the guestbook with a captcha spam protection. If the file cache will act strangly I'll remove it again.
- September 4 2008. Moved edutechwiki to another machine to make it a bit faster. Upgraded to Mediawiki 1.13.
