(no subject)

I've been lurking here for a while now, and want to know what I can do to help. I'm teaching myself perl, so I don't think major updates / bugfixes would be my thing. I could attempt small fixes or whatnot. I'm a programmer by day, so I'm pretty good at testing things every which way to make sure they don't break.

So, I guess what I'm asking is:

What projects are available for someone who has less than great perl skills? Or where else could I help out? Lemme know. Thanks.

Security Enhancements... testers needed

The more I've been working with my new project fotobilder and its ultra-paranoid security everywhere, the more I realize that LiveJournal's security sucks in comparison.

So, I'm porting over its security infrastructure, piece by piece.

Today's work is detailed in this changelog post.

Please... run this on your machine and test everything out.

Reply here with results, positive or negative.

I want to get this tested and running live so I can start phase 2.
