IPP Update Jan. 25th, 2002 11:46 am
Phase 1 complete.

On the human side... feeling very urgh, there are things going on in my stomach I'd rather not know about; however the rest of me is recovering well; just a touch tired. Oh, and bored witless.

Waah! Get well soon...

Created an account on IPP, but I'm getting "Login Failed" when I try and use the confirmation code. Username "ciphergoth".

On another note, I prefer the confirmation emails that just say "select this URL" where the confirmation code is embedded in the URL... then I don't have to copy and paste anything from the email.

hope this helps...

Right... got the first bug that says "login failed" - there may be another.

The confirmation email now includes the link you suggested - the "password recovery"
one *won't*, specifically because I don't want to make that an easier option than remembering the password in the first case.

All works now.

the "password recovery" one *won't*, specifically because I don't want to make that an easier option than remembering the password in the first case.

Why not, if you don't mind my asking? Would it be so bad if there were users that habitually signed on that way?

Hrm... 'cos no-one else does it that way? (waits for counterexamples). That's actually a good question... should I let people log on just by, effectively, confirming their email address? While I'm not sure I want to create a system that's likely to send vast amounts of email, it does bear thinking about. Actually, most of this project warrants a lot of thinking about, especially on how to make it modular. For the moment I'm trying to get a simple variant of the journal running that I can use as a programming notebook / log.

I received my confirmation OK, haven't tried anything else.

Then again not actually sure what this is for, but anything called 'infinite penguins' I have to sign up for

Heh, well it doesn't really do *anything* yet, but the homepage gives an idea of what it will, eventually, do.
