I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I am ignoring #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

I re-opened account creation with a custom math captcha. Hope it does the trick for a bit.

Now to emails...

Congratulations! That’s awesome. :)

I pretty much finished mike's painting last night. I'm calling it "View of the Fjord". Fjord is a great word. I learned some lighting tricks, as well as some things not to do. This was inspired by a photo that Mike took. I think I'm going to do an original next.

Hubski is still on lockdown. I tried to open the gates, but we had about 1 bot per minute signing up. The captcha isn't doing its job. I was working on an email activation, but then a black fly landed in my chardonnay; we've been added to some spam lists that Google and Microsoft reference. I'm now working on that.

We just had a wooden fence installed that includes our lot, and the vacant one behind it that we got last year. It would kick Danielsan's ass.

Camping this weekend!

Ha. Perhaps, but I don't think so. It seems to be an authentication issue where Google has upped their game. I don't think we've been blacklisted, just that we fell off the best practices list. Working on it atm.

UPDATE: Maybe we are. Outlook says we are on a blocklist. Grrr.

I don't think bots and spammers care.

I'm in Denver with thenewgreen atm. Heading home today.

I think I'm adding an email activation step in account creation, and in doing so, we can maybe remove the promotion mechanism.

I'm going to China for the first time in several years later this month. I'm excited to see what has changed.

I agree. Intersex (genotype) is rare, and in those cases you could use something like testosterone. It just seems odd to use a moving and modifiable target as the primary factor.

    (a) she must be recognised at law either as female or as intersex (or equivalent);

    (b) she must reduce her blood testosterone level to below five (5) nmol/L for a continuous period of at least six months (e.g., by use of hormonal contraceptives); and

    (c) thereafter she must maintain her blood testosterone level below five (5) nmol/L continuously (ie: whether she is in competition or out of competition) for so long as she wishes to remain eligible.

This seems such a weird and arbitrary determination. So a male record-holder could legally become female or intersex, artificially lower his/her testosterone levels, and sweep? It's doping in the other direction. XY/XX is so simple. It's what causes testosterone differences.
