Just got my money from Jill Winters--and a little extra: a $25 Borders card. This can probably keep me entertained for a day or two, which is good, since I'm banking all my allowance for Otakon.

That check covers what I want available for Otakon. Now I just have to convince Mom to front me the money she'll owe me for her website, to cover the hotel...

Random Filespace ideas that could probably use a bit of commenting:
  • URL rewriting, to automagically put the appropriate .phtml files in each subdirectory (e.g. username/delfile.phtml would be the same as delfile.phtml?user=username). A minor thing, but still.
  • Access controls on files ("only allow registered users X, Y, and Z access"), which probably requires integration with Apache's Auth and Authz phases. (Not too difficult, really, considering I've already hijacked the Trans phase...)
  • Temporary files, deleted after 48 hours.
  • Sub-fucking-directories.
Some or all of the last three could be restricted to paid users...hmm.

Automagically is a fun word, but I've never heard "subdirectories" phrased like that before. ^^

*hugs* Hope Otakon is fun for you.

Paid services, eh? Good idea. Temp files maybe not so much, as it seems to me that automatically freeing up drivespace would be a good thing for you no matter who does it, but I figure anything you can convince people to pay for has got to be worthwhile.

Yeah, I didn't figure temp files would be paid, but I'm thinking about the others...

I don't know whether I would be willing to pay specifically for any of those features. I doubt it. (Which isn't to say paypal'ing just for the sake of support is unheard of, but those features don't seem very attractive.)

See you soon!
