 creating a new account was broken
And I was wondering why I was getting so few new signups,
apart from the usual bunch of fake accounts from Russia:

it turns out I introduced a bug in the signup code almost 6 weeks ago (!)
which made new account creation not work [cursing]

fixed now..

There are things I can do to prevent this in the future.

- automatic message if there is a "critical error" in the web server log
- automatic signup test (for example): there is software that can do a "pretend signup"
and then check if everything went ok

Forced to be more professional about it [lol]
