. Topicala Page Index Token

A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Topicala Needs your Help

I need as many peoples helps as I can get. I am setting up a hierarchical tag directory and I need people to help me populate it.

You can add tags in to the database by simply searching for a topic via the web interface, or you can also use standard http GET requests via my “API”. Simply type in your browser address bar http://www.topicala.com/api/add/[TagName]

To make it hierarchical, it would be a great help if people could put a parent topical category by using the input box on the search results. For example if you seach for C#, a parent topic would be Programming Languages, or musical Notes.

You can also use the API to add a parent topical tag in by using the following query string http://www.topicala.com/api/add/[ParentTag]/[ChildTag]. If either the child tag or the parent tag don’t exist in the database then it will automatically create them.

Once I have a good corpus of information, I will enable it so that it will be easier for people to filter their topical search results through topicala.

I really appreciate any help you can give me!

Cheers
