Entries

General Syntax

[permission] trigger [mark] [title] [newline] [body]

Introduction

Entries are groups of items. The entry syntax makes it easy to bundle similar items together. This makes it easy to create something like a todo list, or a group of your favorite quotes. Any items underneath an entry trigger will be added to the entry. An entry with no permission trigger will default to private. If an entry with the same title already exists, then the items of that entry will be added to the existing entry.

Types of Entries
  1. List
  2. Contact

Examples

Let's create a private todo list titled "Things I gotta do" with four items to see how simple it is:

list things I gotta do

- Call the parents
I know, I know, it has been too long since I last called.

- throw a huge party and invite all my closest internet friends

- buy milk
and none of that 2% stuff, it's all skim for me

- listen to music
I need some "me" time.

Let's create a public list of some quotes:

public list 5 quotes I like

- From the West Wing episode "17 People"
Ainsley Hayes on Woman/civil rights:
"Because it's humiliating. A new Amendment we vote on declaring that I'm equal under the law to a man? I am mortified to discover there's reason to believe that I wasn't before...
...the same Article 14 that protects you protects me. And I went to law school just to make sure."

-William Feather
"No man is a failure who is enjoying life."

-Barely Legal blog's advice for first year law students
We have been getting lots of requests lately from anxious 1Ls-to-be, asking for advice on a variety of topics, from "how close should I live to school" to "what is the best method to highlight my casebooks". My advice to them is not nearly as narrow as their questions. Simply put, I tell them not to go.

"Michael Moore simultaneously represents everything I detest in a human being and everything I feel obligated to defend in an American. Quite simply, it is that stupid moron's right to be that utterly, completely wrong."
