Today I fixed the last showstopper bugs in Sudoku and put it up on the main site. So now you have a new game to play.

It doesn’t seem that new to us because Jim wrote the first rough draft of it in September of 2005. Wow, we move kind of slow sometimes! It’s been 99% done for almost a year and a half but we had a bug where it wouldn’t let you type numbers into your username or password so many of you wouldn’t have been able to log in when the page was up. I finally got that fixed today (in a way that made me happy) and so you will now see Sudoku on the leader board and in the menus.

Have fun!

Under the hood changes

About a year ago we got frustrated with some of the behind the scenes workings of the site. Certain things were too slow or just written using old techniques that weren’t making us happy. So we upgraded all of the back-end code and site templating functions which should be faster and easier to work with in the long run.

We’ve been testing them internally for the past 9 months and we haven’t found any bugs in the past 6 months, so today I loaded all the new stuff onto the main site.

It looks like everything is working to me, but if you have any strange problem first try holding down shift while reloading/refreshing the page. If that you still have the problem after that, report it to us so we can fix it.
