Peek a Boo!

PayPal

I recently paid via PayPal for LJ account. At the end of the PayPal page, I saw this

You have sent a secure payment of $5.00 USD to LiveJournal.com.This credit card transaction will appear on your statement as "PAYPAL *DANGACOM LJ". You will receive an email receipt for this transaction shortly.
For details on your transaction, please contact %1%.

See the %1% bit? I think it's an e-mail address or a website link?

Either way, I thought I'd let you know about it so you can fix it. :)

ljcomint CVS

People have been emailing me, telling me there are conspiracy theories floating about that we're only putting new code in our private "ljcomint" CVS repository.

We do have a private CVS repository, but it's not for super secret features.

Here's what's in it, and why:

-- our config files (bigip, nagios, dns, apache, cricket), not useful for other people to have
-- files listing our projects (assignments.txt), vendor_contacts.txt, contacts.txt (contact info for each employee)
-- server/asset tracking information
-- xcolibur site scheme: our branded site scheme, only private because everybody took and used our previously "ljcom" dystopia scheme, even though it wasn't open. (but it's mostly our fault for not documenting that in the past)
-- component and boxer S2 schemes. this is the closest to a "hidden feature" that's private, but hardly. it's just a scheme, like xcolibur. we paid for them to be developed. it's not core code.

So please, if you see rumors floating about that we're hiding all our new code in ljcomint, point people at this post.

Thanks!
