I ran a database cleanup job around midnight, Thursday morning 8/23. Hopefully this will speed things up a bit, as I know the server has been lagging a bit.

The last time I ran a similar script, some stored case files became corrupted and were unplayable. I think I've ironed out those wrinkles, but let me know if you spot something like that, or something else seems wrong today.

Thanks.

To further clarify for bug reporting.

I log in as:
R anstett, or Treschaude, of X.L. Derringer and I am able to open new cases, solve them and turn them in. I am able to open stored cases and turn them in, I am able to store cases.

Obviously Treschaude was not able to do this on their own computer.

I've lost my cases for the day too. Is anything being done about it or shall I assume it is going to be a holiday for cases today?

In reading RAnstett's post, perhaps cleaning your computers internet history, and cache might help. If he is able to access the files, and get a full case count for the day from his computer, but someone else using the same account from another computer can not, it may not be Sleuth but the computers themselves?

Yup. It's half the day gone and still no cases. :( I was supposed to go pick-up my gift from the prince today. :'( Since it appears that today's steamer is filled-up, I'll have to try to book passage for tomorrow. :P

As it appears that this is a widespread problem, I would appreciate a message from admin explaining what is going on and when they expect it to be fixed.

Arabella, it is a myth that the cookies on your computer contain that info. I had a computer crash about 4 days ago and had to completely re-do my system. I lost 0 files and no information. Our family accounts are all exactly as they were left and everyone plays from my computer. That stuff is stored on the server. The cookies seem to store is the progress in a cases currently being worked on, plus other general stuff about the game itself.

It would be courting disaster to allow such info to be stored in the cookies on the computer of users who are not always competent to be trusted with such things. That's not meant as an insult. The fact is that most people haven't any idea how to empty their cache periodically to speed-up their own access, especially without deleting the important cookies. They don't need to know how their computer works, after all. It would be too easy for them to accidently delete something.

What would you do for those whose system crashes and they have to reformat their hard-drive and do a complete new install of Windows (and everything else)? Your cookies are then gone. Forever.

I don't think it has anything to do with computers that are signed into either. while at home this morning, I signed on from 2 desktops and a laptop, 0 cases, at work I just signed in on my work machine and still 0 cases. Not sure how Rans machine is set up, but the fact that I have more than one workstation affected tells me that it is a more widespread problem.
