Post Here's a new one..
Book puzzle totals (last 7 days) shows me to have -48 points.(yes - negative 48). Scratching my head to figure out how that could have happened! (actual total should be 56 pts.) This occurred today when I submitted an 8pt. book solution..

It's been corrected now, but unfortunately I'm not sure what happened.

My best guess is some kind of race condition: you submitting a (book?) solution
right when the new total was computed, even though "table locking" should
have prevented that.

Edit: there was a problem as well because I accidentally deleted June's extra
puzzles from the database, so any points anyone scored for them were no longer counted..
(fixed now)
