Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Just a very simple message board (no user account registrations of course) for a few of my group members working on a project.

The basic idea I have is to have an XML file which will act as our database, HTML file for users to view and a dash of JavaScript to add stuff submitted from the form to our XML file. I'd probably need help with the JavaScript, which I will post on Stack Overflow.

Does anyone know of something like or similar to this (or a better way to implement this)? I know there's something for Mac users called Frenzy but unfortunately we all have Windows and Linux over here.

Well, i'd suggest keeping it as simple as possible. the closest thing i can think of, offhand is tiddywiki - its a single html file you can edit in a browser as long as its local and pretty much is a wiki on a single file .

One issue i see is, if you have two people posting at once, dropbox will simply split the two versions into separate files.

Good point about the conflict issue, though I'm not too sure. If I post 1 sec before another user would db still flag it as a conflict? –  meiryo Apr 23 '11 at 14:44
    
Just checked out tiddlywiki, the idea doesn't seem to bad actually. Even a simple posting thing like what I'm doing right now would be suffice, I don't want to spend too much time on making a communication tool though ;P –  meiryo Apr 23 '11 at 14:47

well, i'm not sure - i had a word file that that happened to before. i think we were editing it at the same time and saved two different versions. just something to watch out for –  Journeyman Geek Apr 23 '11 at 14:49
    
I see, but it might be a different case if I'm submitting it through a browser though... –  meiryo Apr 23 '11 at 14:54
