Do you ever have one of those days when everything's happening so fast it's impossible to take enough mental notes to remember something for later? I've been having one of those days weeks months, and things are showing little sign of slowing down any time in the near future.
You know those days where you get comfy on the sofa and just, well, vegetate? I tend to do something similar at work - I just park up at the desk and start working through my Never Ending To Do List (TM). Ok, so it's not as relaxing, but I guess it helps to get things done.
I've just spotted a fairly major bug in my code, which seems to be affecting certain URLs on UPSU.net.
I reckon I can have it fixed for 5am, but I'm not 100% sure...
Update: 05:39 - it's fixed, with knobs on. Panic over, normality returns to the streets of Portsmouth. Small babies smile again. The sun's out, birds sing in the trees.
Or not - y'know, whatever...
While I wait for my bedtime cup of hot chocolate to cool down (and yes, that really is the time), I just wanted to jot down a couple of little changes that almost no-one will notice, even fewer people will use, and that I'm fairly proud of regardless.
I know I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm getting bored of having a spam-bot trying to advertise websites offering videos and images of a certain, ahem, "type" of kinky activity. What's even worse is it seems to be happening more on one of my blog entries than anywhere else on the site - is it something I'm writing about? Something in my side bar's "about me" text?
So the NUS Registration system has been online for about a week. 301 people have registered or updated their accounts, but naturally there have been a couple teething troubles which I'm working through now.
Ok, let's see what breaks... ;o)
Let's see if the multiple-entries-on-one-day code is working shall we?
I'm still having problems working out why only admins can post comments. It also seems that the person who wrote the commenting system (which is part of an open source project) is stumped by this problem.
The comments system is a very important one in my eyes because it means everyone can voice their opinion on a subject on the same page, instead of talking about it in the forums (although there's a good argument that drawing people into the forums isn't such a bad thing, either).
