Trackback is a Go

Following Rael's instructions I've got TrackBack working for my weblog. I think. Someone would have to ping one of my stories to for me to find out.

I decided to go with "Followups" after reading what Edward Felten had to say about it.

I also hacked the CSS for the trackbacks page to make it easier to read and eliminated the stupid "new window" link (I hate those). Finally, I made the URL to ping my site for trackbacks is a link to make it easier to copy and paste.

Now I just need to get libwww-perl installed and I can send TrackBacks, too.

Happily, all of this is free software.
