Hi, Sam Mason.  Thanks for trying out Tahoe.

Unfortunately tiddly-on-tahoe doesn't properly save itself to a
mutable file.  At least, I don't think it does, and from your report
it didn't when you tried it.  The recommended way to use
tiddly-on-tahoe is to construct a url of the form
http://$HOST:$PORT/uri/$DIRCAP/$NAME , where $NAME is a name within
that directory such as "wiki.html".

A patch to make tiddly-on-tahoe save itself properly to a mutable file
would be gratefully accepted.  (Note that there is an advantage to the
$DIRCAP/$NAME approach, which is that TiddlyWiki can then also make up
new names to put into the same directory, such as its backup files and
its RSS feed file.)

Also, these instructions are clearly deficient:

http://testgrid.allmydata.org:3567/uri/URI:DIR2-RO:7h7syiurogz5erc2au74tjwguu:h7bdxvjtvidlkcdbld3j2d5sbgyzsbqs7wdnu6yznqrejzssc5za/wiki.html

Since they were supposed to explain that you have to use these
specially shaped URLs for tiddly_on_tahoe.  A patch to make these
instructions clearer would also be gratefully accepted.

Regards,

Zooko
