I've been wokring on alot of web apps recently, and I've been cleaning up the 404's and misc. pages around velvetcache.
Today I tried (reasonably hard) to get typo running. I never did, probably because there seems to be absolutely no documentation out there and I don't know ruby. Instead I dropped in a copy of WordPress using Dreamhost's excellent One-Click install system.
I've got to say, WordPress is extremely nifty, and the amount of plugins is enormous. If you want to look at it it's at http://typo.velvetcache.org/ (dead link), though to be honest it's just a wordpress blog with some broken css (plugin issues).
I'm going to play with it some more and try to theme it. It's a really nice app with lots of support, and to be honest, I doubt I'll ever "finish" my system (I'm still inserting new blog posts via phpMyAdmin!) and even if I do, it won't be anywhere near as cool. I guess we'll see.
