Hey! This may be a compound problem. We were upgrading PHP and may have had to restart apache several times in the process. This will totally bork your sessions. At one point, all PHP apps were borken, but Master Ra was able to rememdy things in short order. The other deal is the server processes hu...

Just for kicks I completely removed the images directory from the skin. Looks fine, but some of the replacement text sizes need to be changed. I can tackle this later.

When you go to the staging server, you have to change your skin to "Burning Man Lite" in your profile. Otherwise it's exactly the same except no Avatars. (avatars are borken on Staging for some reason)

Sorry gang, the dox won't get posted here tonight...they went to the ETF for review and a cohesive result has not been made yet. Don't fret, we're working on it and we'll get it out AQAP.

To be clear here: No, you boneheads ( ;) ), I wasn't suggesting people use the board this way. It was a good way for ME to review all of the threads OFFLINE!

Two more things: 1. Regarding COPPA: This site already has a COPPA agreement on it when you sign up for an account. Debate may rage on whether it will ever be enforced, if it's useful, etc. 2. I am on a less-than-56K-dailup here and browsing the boards is totally acceptable. The pages come in fast, ...

Hey again!

Now I remeber one - can we end this thread and bust out the subtopics into different threads? The ePlaya Summit is over and I think we could best start a few subtopics to discuss matters. Like, "plonking" and such. Just an idea.

hey gang: Thanks for the feeback. I was unaware of the "too many connections" problem and we'll fix that. Right now this app shares the server with our mail server, which processes more spam than Hormel. Sometimes this may impact the response time, but it's usually "bursty". Don't fret!! We're worki...
