Post quirky bug
Here's one that took me a while to figure out: I was getting warnings for one particular user,
that they had solved all available bonus puzzles (currently ~ 1200 puzzles in the pool),
even though their total was around 31000 points...

Turns out they never solved a bonus puzzle, so every time they'd reach the bonus target,
the new target was shifted by only 25 points, and a new bonus puzzle selected.. [bored]

Time to make it so you either keep your current bonus puzzle when this happens, or at the very least
the "lost" puzzle should be made available again.

edit: I've now changed it so unsolved bonus puzzles are returned to the pool of available puzzles.

I love/hate this sort of bug. You design/build a system the way you best think people will use it, but even years later there are edge cases that still require attention.

Every time I see an error and think, "But that's impossible!?", it turns out that I'm wrong! [razz]
