Anyone notice any DP Site Irregularities?Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 01/07/2011 - 23:09
We updated the DP's software last night to a version that should be less resource intensive, i.e. faster. We did a lot of testing, but apparently we didn't catch everything.
One consequence is that the "Who's Online" block on the front page doesn't count visitors anymore. That's kind of sad, but it is a trade off for more power.
Neverquit also noticed that the ReCaptcha isn't working on the signup page, which effectively means that new registration is down until we figure out what's up with that.
(I'm not taking that Captcha off, because the site would be overrun with spam bots instantly. Can you hear them, chanting at the gates of the DP? "Viagra! Cialis! Cheap Rolex!")
Bigmike noticed something too, and I'm wondering if anyone else has. If you notice anything weird, please report it here. And if you'd like to help keep this huge electronic billboard on the side of the global information superhighway glowing, please donate to the cause here.
Many thanks to you all.
