Gift subscriptions from ACs (Anonymous Cowards) are working again. If you're curious what was broken, have a look.

If you attempted to make a gift subscription as an AC since early to mid May, and received an error, please try again at: https://soylentnews.org/subscribe.pl (Or click the link in the "Navigation" Slashbox).

As is standing SN policy, martyb is to blame for anything warranting blame. =) You can go about your business. Move along.

      Of course not - but a subscription would be nice.

    The commit log states an expression of having a lesser intelligence (aka being dumb), but I beg to differ.

    It is more likely to be an honest mistake while the brain was farting in the wrong direction. So, a "brainfart" statement would be appropriate to be issued here.

    For those of us who do not code may not understand that the simple coding things just go wrong once in a while. We all suffer from this. Then again, who is immune in other occupations from making an obvious mistake? Even if the person in question should know better.

    So, I hereby declare the committer as not being stupid and mentally replace the commit log message with "Brainfart happened.".

    Unfortunately Anonymous Cowards can not buy a subscription for themselves

    Sooo....someone else can buy them one?

    When viewing my comment history, is there a GET or POST parameter I can use to get more comments per page? Being able to search would also be useful.
