Ok, first of all, the squid is D-E-A-D.
This weekend, Bruce and Samsyn slaved away at a bunch of little details uncovered by the latest batch of Guinea Pigs. Things like:
- We used to use an outside provider to send promotional emails, and apparently our code (which I wrote, BTW), didn’t handle the case of us not using that provider any more very gracefully. This was making the servers crashy, SamSyn fixed it.
- Got a good bug where some
boneheadperson with interesting ideas about Avatar names was entering interesting characters in the name. Fixed.
- Did some work on ChangeMe acting weird, with the help of an old friend (whose name I won’t mention because I don’t have their permission.
- Did some research into some folks with GIANT T$ balances. We need to trap them when we restore their inventory to see if they’re “legit”.
That’s “all”, for a W-E-E-K-E-N-D, folks.
Next weeks we’ll invite more GPs.
I’m sure you all want to know why we can’t be done NOW. Well, we want to get things working as perfectly as we can before opening the floodgates. Otherwise, we’ll be faced with lots of people reporting problems. We would rather go slowly, and get things right, than quickly, and have a mess on our hands.
That’s all for tonight.
