  • I'm sorry, but how does one work for a year on a website but not get the login working right?

    I was a bit interested in it, unlike all the previous "goodbye, cruel use Perl;" attempts, but clicking the button on the signup page I got a "can't fork page" error, then trying to login after a few tries it now says "This account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator for access.". Incredible! Maybe it's just me, but I find this to be a major turnoff...

    • We weren't working on it for a year. There have been a number of attempts on the project and this, most recent, version has been built in a couple of months.

      We're still investigating the problem, but it seems that our error was in capacity planning. During two weeks of testing we have seen very few errors, but once the entire Perl community started looking at the site, the server couldn't cope.

      Yes, it's disappointing. But I can assure you that no-one is as disappointed as me today.

      I can only apologise again.
