Nice work Joe and congratulations for all the fixes. Much appreciation to you for keeping all this functioning for our enjoyment.
 
We have a software update the morning of Wednesday, January 26th, 2022, requiring us to close beginning at 5:30AM PST.

Estimated downtime is 1.5 hours.



Update Update (see what I did there? :s0030:)

After three hours of sleep last night, only a few the night before, 51 of the past 58 hours in this chair, and fighting with issues every step of the way, I'm happy to say that I think the worst is finally behind us!

Sleep?? Nah, I'm cracking a beer :s0090:

I've been doing this long enough to know better than to change things just for the sake of change. Has it really been thirteen years?? Anyway, while this update might not appear to be all that big, the underlying changes were no small matter. Just because it looks mostly the same doesn't mean it is. This update was necessary for us to move forward with several big features I've been working on for the past couple years (no, you didn't misread that). We're finally getting close to the launch of our new classified system! We've had a handful of members beta testing it for a while now, and so far the feedback is overwhelmingly positive (still gotta spend some time with @Mikej :s0112:). I'll be opening it up for additional feedback in the coming weeks.

It's going to take me a few days to tackle some of the bugs I found during the update, but I'd appreciate it if you'd continue posting bug reports as you encounter them so I don't miss any. I'll be getting to them as soon as possible.

Here's a rough list of some of the changes. More coming soon!

well, as a fellow computer idiot, let me congratulate you on doing excellent work. The last re-write I was involved directly with (other than upgrading my desktop to the latest Linux version) took six months, eight code writers, three code checkers and three beta testers working 24/7.
Sleep? Who needs sleep, just go get three dozen egg mcmuffins and another three cases of 32 ounce mountain dew.

Now, if entry is greater than six digits return a 404 code and return to original start point.

God Bless and when you are in Kfalls, I'll buy you a pizza and beer at Mia and Pias (best Pizza joint in the whole state of Oregon)
