Okies, after some time of prolonged absence I am back in the seat (more or less, will take some time to get to 100%, but at least I will check in every day again), here what is on my plate, let me know if you need anything else done.

Known Problems


- Regular members could not see whether their PMs sent to other persons were read by them (FIXED)

- Registration Puzzles (that should keep away spammers) unwantedly keep away everybody, as they are not audible and dont allow input. This is a bugger, did not find a quick fix today, will attack it next week (I have to delve into the change log archives to uninstall the stuff). In the meantime, if you need to register and cannot then please send an email to rattler (at) ohlmer (dot) es, I will then proceed to register you manually.

- Summertime ends on Sunday 0200J and rquires reset of our mil clock. I will adress it early Sunday morning.

- Forum software is way outdated version wise and has security holes, I will address this (and try to update to latest version) not earlier than end of next week.

- Forum software is completely obsolete (and not supported anymore): We need to rebuild the forum from scratch on the newer 2.x platform of SMF, this will lead to big changes both for the positive as for the negative. This is a major project and will be started parrallel to this forum to facilitate a later switch. Layout and functionality will change sometimes dramatically, content will be preserved.

Thats it for now,

Reply to self, more things eem to be broken (its about time we set up the new software):

- Some people cannot upload Avatars (like Rattler, e.g). Anybody got the same problem so I get more data to investigate the cause (my own avatar here works just fine)

- Sitemap does not produce an XML file anymore, no update for Google at the moment, I am afraid. Still clueless what causes it, but investigating.

And so it goes on...

FIXED


The Avatars settings had changed, now everybody should be able to use Avatars (not more than 120 px width !! ) again.

And more things seem to have stopped working: Anybody notes the headers are not rotating anymore? Or is it just on my machine (I keep seeing the Hind).

Feedback welcome,

Must be a machine thing, they do not rotate on my Mac but on the PC of the missus they do.
