Fear not, follow inmates - apparently the world outside the asylum has shifted
and the physical laws have changed, but the doctors nurses and construction nanobots
are working on getting everything back into top shape again!

Ok, I will need to dig for the problem with the &quot;entities&quot; being mistranslated, but I need to get to work now.

Please holler if you find any warnings or misbehaviour of the asylum!

Well, apparently dreamhost finally upgraded away from php4 (php 5 is out for 6 years now),
and while the asylum&#039;s code had been prepared for the switch, uh, 5 years ago,
there were some incompatible changes within php 5 since then that broke it at a quite fundamental level:
it couldn&#039;t understand the parameters passed in from the forms and urls anymore....

Unfortunatly, that&#039;s not the only change. There&#039;s something nasty going on with the html entity quoting,
and unfortunatly we don&#039;t have a test base to discover every breakage, so just keep your eyes open for warnings and the like.

Hah! Here&#039;s a funny one:

Q: When is $DOCUMENT_ROOT not the root of the document?
A: When it&#039;s $_SERVER[&quot;DOCUMENT_ROOT&quot;]!

Ha hah hahha! [cue laugh track]

OK, so not so funny, but I&#039;m sick today, and learning Mercurial because I have to. :/ I&#039;m busy building repositories of the http://deepfling.com/ website, so I&#039;m mucking about trying to make http://gurusnetwork.com/ work again while I wait for the clones. I really miss register_globals, truly. And there&#039;s about 8000 references to $DOCUMENT_ROOT in the GN site.

When Dreamhost stopped supporting PHP4 I was [kinda] prepared, everything was already upgraded to PHP5, but I had a lot of anomalies, and our ecommerce site was flaky until I tracked the last bits down. (I hope I&#039;ve tracked the last bits down, I meant to say...)

Ozones.com was also down!

Handson.nu was expired, and now a link-farm!

Mostly all fixed now. Mercurial calls to me- come ye, merge with us! Be one with our distributed objects!

I hate being sick. Fortunately there are drugs for making me loopy.

Your pal, -doc-
