Comments for Finnegans Web & Wiki A Wiki-based Study Guide to Finnegans Wake... Tue, 09 Feb 2016 10:22:45 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on Waywords and Meansigns is OUT!!!!! by TimFinnegan Tue, 09 Feb 2016 10:22:45 +0000 I’d like to sift thru all your fine chapter-one notes to add to my collection here: but I’d much prefer a format where they’re all on one page– having to open and close every link is really asking too much. I’m also trying to get a new open discussion group for all things Joyce at but I’m still trying to master their rigamarole for inviting new members. Also, I’ve posted new etext editions of FW and Ulysses here:

Why did I suddenly get an e-mail from this site, when it does not appear that anyone posted anything??
or, to re-phrase: Is anybody still there??

Comment on Finnegans Wake, Key West, FL by finnegan Mon, 02 Feb 2015 00:27:21 +0000 Sorry I’m just now catching this. Wow, I’ve been away a while. Apologies if you’ve moved on from your question, I realize that time changes everything. I originally envisioned this wiki being completely open, however, a few bad apples forced my hand. Nothing worse than wiki spam. Very difficult to keep things tidy, especially on such a large wiki as this one. But all registered members can edit. And when I’m paying attention, I’m pretty liberal with approving new users. I’ll try to pay better attention. Your group is welcome here. The more comments/talk, the better.

Comment on Finnegans Wake, Key West, FL by Karel Rei Fri, 29 Aug 2014 05:36:26 +0000 Perhaps you know the large line by line collection of notes called
Fweet. I belong to a mailing list called FWRead and we have been discussing a proposal I made there for an Addendum to Fweet which would not be personally edited and restricted as all previous collections of Finnegans Wake notes have been, including Fweet (Raphael is very personal in his choice of notes to accept). I proposed a Wiki which for each page would link to Raphael’s notes for each page, and would then be open for line by line notes from other contributors. It would also require a section where contributors would write evidence (using their own criteria) for the note(s) they are posting. Such “justifications” would be required for each posting, in order not to just put up free associations, or personal inspirations.
Also the notes page would have a space for “topics” where contributors could place links to Wikipedia, bios, or other brief background information they though was necessary to understand their notes and their relevance.
I proposed this to the group, and their were two responses about

Are people aware already exists?
Apologies if I’ve got the wrong end of the proverbial!

Very good idea. Perhaps it could be done using a service like, which may have a low cost option? As in free.
Plus, as a wiki editing could be open and those monitoring might just enter cautionary notes and requests for clarification on problem pages

I have no idea what you see your wiki doing, or if it would be adaptable to such a scheme. Does it have open editing possibilities?
Is it something you would have any interest in this Wiki becoming?
I bring it up only because you already exist and were suggested.
If not we can of course create a new wiki, which not be a bad idea, except none of us seem to have any Wiki experience.

Comment on James Joyce’s historic sojourn in Nice recalled… by Simone Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:14:17 +0000 hi, tried today to create an account, but the site reports “internal error”… something wrong?

Comment on Finnegans Wake, Key West, FL by Steve H Sun, 23 Jun 2013 23:57:52 +0000 I’m the one still active on the Wiki. Ir really would like to communicate with you about its future. Good luck in Key West.

Comment on Scholars, Students, Teachers and Addicts: Welcome Back! by John rigler Fri, 26 Apr 2013 17:56:12 +0000 I was really quite defeated by ‘Ulysses’ about five years ago so tried ‘Wake’ instead. Obviously it is not easier. However, with the Skeleton Key and fact that most respectable folks would have no real ability to judge my progress through ‘Wake’ became liberating. Some days I just underline HCEs and some days I am pulled into long passages. O foenix culprit!

Comment on About by Thomas Mon, 05 Nov 2012 13:40:56 +0000 #comment-10707 your site is great, unfortunately it is not working at the moment and it is really inconvenient considering I have a Finnegan’s Wake project due in the next couple of days. Could you please get it back up and running as soon as possible. Thanks.
