Sure, because today is the 15th [flapper]

Hint: I had just read this thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=967
and saw that I had to set the country for berka and michaele in the forum database
(a relic from the failures of using the ip2location service).

I then thought "Ah I still have to look at this gold star issue."

... [huh]

I agree that Michaela's puzzle yesterday was something different, but there was no user submitted puzzle on Aug 15, or Sept 1.

Have fun. [thumbup]

Interesting how I was wrong-footed by that user puzzle thing.

It turned out to be quite a tricky "race condition", it'd take a bit too long to explain here..

NO. Eclipses are cool. Every one should try and experience totality some time in their life.

ETA : And you expected us to be able to guess "race condition?" [confused]

Not quite, for a moment I thought "it must be the user puzzle", but it wasn't [blush]

Finding a race condition is very diffiicult. You deserve credit.
