digitalmars.D - Add 'd-programming-language' to the D newsgroups web pages

If you take a look at the source code of the D newsgroups web pages, you 
will see something like:

<META NAME="keywords" content="news,pnews,webnews,nntp,usenet,netnews" />

Obviously it has nothing to do with the D programming language, so I 
suggest whoever manages that website to modify the PHP code to generate 
proper META tag with the "d-programming-language" as a keyword.

Kind regards

The web-site part of D-related activity is grossly undeveloped.
It needs a serious rethinking. Particularly, the learning pages (none
of them i ever saw), the reference pages (outdated and incomplete) and
community tools (i had to go through the pains of setting up google
with this newsgroup to be able to use it at all).

You can just use any normal NG client. It's no pain at all as long as you don't go using some web interface. 'Course, that said, a better "official" web interface to the NGs probably would be in D's best interest. That, plus suggestions (Opera, T-Bird, OE, etc) and instructions for real NG clients right there on the d site. ...And a clear notice that help with learning D belongs in D.learn, not here...

Sorry to add OT-stuff here, but since you don't have a valid mail 
address placed down anywhere, Nick, I just wanted to state that your 
Goldie parsing system does not compile on 64 bit dmd due to the good 
old size_t vs uint for array sizes/inidices issue. Even after fixing 
these bugs goldie will crash with a range error. 

Plz respond to my mail address so we might fix that issue.

Ahh, thanks. I don't have a 64-bit system ATM, so that's how the problem crept in. Although I think I might at least have access to a 64-bit machine though, I should check... I do have issue tracking for Goldie here: View Tickets: http://www.dsource.org/projects/goldie/report Add Ticket: http://www.dsource.org/projects/goldie/newticket We should probably keep the discussion there unless there's a reason you'd prefer to keep it private. In either case, I'll directly email you a copy of this message in case you're not monitoring this thread any more.
