You may have noticed my posts today to Cohousing-L on the subject: Games & Resource List [was: Kid play in small spaces See second below. Rick is a friend here in Mpls and I talked to him on the phone about dealing with his file which was not on the web already so we decided I'd put it up with a link from the wiki. Further we decided to put it up in html (it was originally an Apple file which he sent as a .doc file. It contains a number of URL's so it seemde like having it in html so those could be links would be useful. But the wiki is not configured to allow html to be uploaded (due to the possibility of destructive scripts being embedded in it. I tried changing the html file name to .txt and uploading it (intending to change the file name back via the shell where the wiki runs). But got the following: Upload warning The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again. Apparently the upload procedure looks inside the file, not just at the extension. So I created a files directory at http://l.cohousing.org (outside the wiki subdomain) which I (probably only I) can upload things that the wiki upload procedure does not like (hopefully a few exceptions). I made a "Games" article that redirects to a stub article on "Games to play in cohousing" but I got the url of the file wrong (forgot the files subdir), did not have time to check it and tried to put the url of the redirect in the cohousing-L message since it was shorter than the url to the article's but that seems to go to the edit page for the redirect... I'll keep trying. Fred -- Fred H.

Find it via: > > (bad URL) This was a first experiment to use the wiki to provide access to a file and I blew it (two ways- both fixed now). A correct procedure to get to the games file is: Go to the Cohousing wiki at http://wiki.cohousing.org and search for games. (The direct url is on the long side). Fred -- Fred H.
