Registration of new forum accounts now requires confirmation via email.

Several hundred dummy forum accounts have been deleted.  By hand.

It turns out, there is a spell-checker feature now.  It has been enabled.  (Thanks to Grant for making me look for this.)

Our web host,, has recently been the target of a widely-distributed denial-of-service attack.  If you have experienced problems accessing the site, it's because of some bored jackholes with nothing better to do.  Pity the poor losers who feel compelled to do such things.  Bluehost is investigating the sources of the attacks, and service is normal.

Excerpt from support email:
Today we experienced several MAJOR distributed denial
of service attacks against our network. We regret that
you experienced some downtime today. We have worked
diligently today to further protect our network from
these types of attacks. The attack today came from
MANY different computers at the same time. This makes
it difficult to block and resolve the issue.

  • (Global)  Updated the registration pages so that the formatting is consistent with the rest of the website.  The page headers are generated by a separate function that can be edited once to change the look of the entire application.

I finally found the bug that was preventing people from editing their own entries and withdrawing from events.  I replaced four lines of insanely crappy and complicated code with a single, elegant line of code that actually works.  So now you can do all that stuff.  Whee.

Results from the first event at Richmond Raceway Complex are posted.

We have begun our new practice of having an OD and a representative of the Timing Team do the final results check after the event.  We reviewed the cards and the results have the blessing of the OD.

OD: Audie Chenery
Timing: Pasha Paterson

Let the trash talking commence.  Cheesy

Follow-up to the post on 08 December 2005:

The features that allow you to edit and withdraw entries in autocrosses aren't working.  I will investigate this when I can.

Hahaha... that should have been December 10th... I've fixed it.
21  Events / Autocross / Edit registration? on: March 06, 2006, 06:51:30 AM
Registration for our first autocross of the year, at Richmond Raceway Complex, is OPEN.

Event Day Schedule:
  • Registration/Gates Open 09:00
  • Registration Closes 10:00
  • Drivers' Meeting 10:30-ish
  • Novice Walkthrough 10:45
  • First Car 11:00
Novices are strongly encouraged to attend the walkthrough following the drivers' meeting.

Please remember that with our use of RRC comes some heightened standards for organization and procedure.  The usual rule applies: Don't be an idiot; pay attention; do what the ODs tell you; no whining allowed; have a fast, fun, safe day. Smiley

Lots of people have said that the "withdraw" page no longer works.  I swear I tested this when I wrote it!  It must be bit rot or cosmic rays or something.  Wink  I'm looking into it.
25  General Category / Announcements / Email Forwarding on: December 08, 2005, 07:29:37 AM
Several people have called for an expansion of the web site administration staff.  I'll go with that.  However, I don't want to pass sensitive userids/passwords over email.  Please meet me at the registration desk at the Dec. 11 autoX or at the Dec. 15 membership meeting, and I'll provide all the necessary login info.
