Not to piss too hard on the revisionist parade surrounding GreyMatter today,

but the program sucked as many rocks back then as it still does now. I was pleased to see that Noah has released the code under a Creative Commons license because the initial terms were partly responsible for my not being very interested in submitting fixes and hacks. So, I downloaded the latest tarball and, lo, nothing much has changed. File and directories are both still world writable, passwords are passed around, clear-text in <hidden> fields and the wheel continues to be re-invented which is either the mark of folly, idiocy or both. And it's got to be some of the ugliest code you'll ever see in your life. see also : [Most] third-party weblog setups are fuct from the start (you'll have to scroll down a ways)
