This really was a large update. Although I've gone back and tested pretty much every function of the site, I may have missed something. If you spot a bug, please be sure to report it!

Can't log in tonight. System doesn't seem to remember my user name or email either.

Which username? Try clicking the "Sign Out" button (if it thinks you are still logged in), or even clearing the cookie manually.

Thanks for the quick reply, clearing the cookies (Firefox, Tools, Pageinfo, Security) worked.

Great stuff, Bryan - thanks!

One issue - when I reply to someone who replied to me, I get notified about a new reply, namely my own. I don't need to know I've just replied to (a reply to) myself.

AH - they're multiplying. I've just got 3 mails telling me about the post I've just made. If the thread continues much longer, then I predict things could get even worse! It'll be an O(N^2) inbox from N posts in the thread!

No UIDs anymore? Fuck that! UID are part of the /. spirit we want to keep :)

Very nice updates, it's now time to move more people here. However, the box to post anonymously disappeared!?

If you are logged in, you see the "Post Anonymously" checkbox. If you aren't logged in, anonymous is assumed and you see a CAPTCHA challenge instead.
