When's it out?
Who would have thought that an online Pictionary-type-game could be so addictive?
I've just made a couple of crucial fixes to my Digest Authentication PHP implementation (a workaround for yet another Internet Explorer bug, and a fix for the somewhat broken Basic Authentication support). Also, it should now gracefully degrade to Basic when used on a server where PHP is not installed as an Apache module.
I know that the Auth_HTTP PEAR module now has Digest Authentication support based partly on my code (thanks to the efforts of Rui Hirokawa), so if these issues haven't already been fixed in that, they might want to do so.
Finally figured out why XML-RPC pings have been broken since the last site upgrade. I was including the file containing the XML-RPC class from inside a function. D'oh!
Full pingback support will shortly return.
We have ways of making you restart your computer
In Windows XP SP2 RC1:

Restart Lateractually means
Bug me again with this dialog box in 11 minutes time.
- With the default setting for Windows Automatic Updating, these updates are installed without even asking you first. Therefore the popping up of this dialog can be completely spontaneous.
- Every time it pops up it steals focus away from whatever you are doing, be it writing some stunning piece of code, losing at the game of your choice or even writing a weblog entry.
Restart Nowis the default action (so if you happen to have pressed enter just after the dialog appeared, it's restart time).
