Feed system will be down or spotty for a day or two for system configuration.

I need to do some large schema changes on the backend of the feed feeder system, which requires taking it offline for a bit periodically PostgreSQL churns.

Unfortunately, the size of the tables in the database make this a many hour, or possibly multi-day process, so things may be shut down for a little while.

Ok, database updates are done, normal service should resume.

Temporary feed issues.

Some of the RSS feeds have been getting stuck this week, due to a combination of a software bug and the fact that I've been away for work and not had time to do any maintenance.

I've been restarting the feed scraper manually when I can, but the issue will probably persist until I have a chance to fix it properly this weekend, when I get back from my trip.

EDIT: I think I've fixed it using SSH.

EDIT EDIT: Ok, it was a priority inversion in the page fetch queue. It looks to be working correctly now

Logged in users can now edit releases!

Logged in users can now edit releases.

This is done by right-clicking on the right hand columns of the release row (vol/chap/extra/group columns). Then, just select the "Edit Release" option on the right-click menu.

The custom right-click dialog also includes some extra information on the release, such as when it was added, who added the release, and whether the release is included in the algorithm for determining what the "newest" chapter is (this is generally used to exclude chapters that are miss-tagged in the source, and as such will be re-added by the feed parsing system if simply deleted).

Questions and comments are welcome on the forum!

Note that the right-click menu as well as the edit dialog (and applying edits) all require javascript.

A number of minor, but nice new additions to the site are going to be rolled out over the next few days. Let me know what you think on the forums!

Login issue should now be fixed.

There was a recent issue (the last few days) where logging in was broken, due to a breaking change in an underlying library I failed to catch (flask-bcrypt decided to start doing explicit type-conversion, apparently).

In any event, the issue should now be fixed. Sorry about that!
