Blink is a small public-access blog engine. It supports running multiple blogs, displays a main page and links for accessing older posts, and supports searching. Each blog can be oldest post first or newest post first. Any blog can be set to take public posts or allow comments. Admin functions include archiving all blogs, and viewing and deleting posts and comments. Posts can also utilize a semiotic bolding of definitions and automatic linking to all definitions. Anti-spam functionality is included, with an IP-based block list. All functionality is in one CGI file smaller than 15 KB.

Release Notes: The cull.cgi script has been moved into blink as an admin call.
Release Notes: A system using the SHORT variable has been introduced to keep the blog's pages at or under the hosting service's compute-cycle limit. By setting SHORT to true and CYCLES to number of pages which can be served daily, blog use will be kept within the monthly limit.
Release Notes: A bugfix was made in the ACCESS system. A typo was fixed in cull.cgi.
Release Notes: A bug in the despam method was fixed. The access list has been moved from the CGI script to a file. Adding IP addresses to the access list has been automated through the admin log.
Release Notes: The "Next Page" link now correctly displays the earliest entries if they are less than COUNT in number. cull.cgi has been added to the download. This allows the user to view the entries from earliest to latest and delete entries that are no longer relevant.
