  • Playing with mulgara, open source java triple store. [mulgara looks like a kinda faceted search/browse thing] Has own query language called TQL which can do more intresting things than SPARQL.

  • Verily I too am unabashedly delighted by the return of the big U.

  • Aww geez, you guys... *blush*

  • Bilby's right--we have indeed suffered, uselessness. We were about to send the Wordie Mounties out to search for you among the snow-covered comment peaks.

    Glad to have you back. :-)

  • Can tags be globally hidden, or does one have to do it on a word-by-word basis?
    Tags here aren't ever attributed — therefore there's no "hiding" going on. The only link between tag and person is to be found from the person's own user pages. And you can tag any word you like without having to list it.

  • It's not that we haven't noticed, uselessness. We have suffered.

  • If y'all haven't noticed, I've been away from Wordie for about a week (give or take). I'm sort of back now, maybe, but I'm sure I'll never get caught up on comments again. ;-) Anyway, glad I saw this discussion.

    Yeah, I tagged this one. I don't even remember why. I guess I wasn't terribly impressed with it. It's nothing personal. All I know is that if I did it unabashedly, it must have seemed important to at the time. So the tag stays. :-P

  • My puzzlement stemmed from the fact that uselessness doesn't list the word mulgara.

    Can tags be globally hidden, or does one have to do it on a word-by-word basis?

    December 10, 2007

  • It's listed right here. Anyway, I'm sure uselessness can speak for himself, so I'll bow out now. :-)

  • Lists are better for thumbing one's nose at particular words.

    December 10, 2007

  • Yes, but the big U doesn't even list this word. So what's with going round attaching faintly disparaging tags anonymously to other people's words? It seems so unnecessarily judgemental somehow.

    Though I'm not really au fait with accepted tagging etiquette, as I've largely been ignoring this particular functionality on Wordie.

  • That's one of uselessness's categories, sionnach.

    December 10, 2007

  • Why would someone anonymously add the tag(s) unabashed meh to this word?
