The order doesn't mean that it's not going to timeout running the ACT. For example everything has run so far this morning except NZ which is after AU and is still running.

Yesterday at 9:00am it was still running NSW which then failed and everything after that died as well.

The challenge is trolling 14,000,000 logs and 100,000 caches to find certain statistics. It's a very I/O intensive process and our disks can't keep up.

I've just tried to publish a cache and go this back:

Future Publish Mode: Courtesy Notice
Cache status is currently in 'Future Publish Mode'.
Your cache is not yet published and will not appear on the listing page.
Your cache will be published 26-Aug-16 12:05 AM AEST.
It is currently 26-Aug-16 2:16 PM.

Note that the publishing date has already passed the current date. I did have a future date listed originally, went in to edit it with today's date, and this is the status I'm left with. What happens from here?

Change the date then select a published log.

I changed the date backwards and forwards and still not able to publish. Maybe I'll wake up in the morning and it will come good.

Future publishing is based on the HIDDEN date, not the published log.

Woke up the next morning and it was all sorted. Just one of those things.

http://geocaching.com.au/cache/ga4696 - It's archived. I expected the cache to be disabled as such.

You do realise that cache vanished into thin air nearly sixteen months ago?

It had an archived log, but was still active, so I changed the status to archived. It was an anomaly in the data stream :-)

Minor text edit - After you submit a rating on a cache, there is an erroneous "D" just hang out below the success message that the rating was added.

A minor issue with the "Find a Cache on Each Day of the Year" email reminders. Usernames with spaces don't get converted to URL format - ie. "Laighside Legends" should become "Laighside+Legends" for the URL link to the graph but it doesn't.

Please post exactly what you get in the email, when you got it, what application you are using to view the email. This will help to troubleshoot issues as the developers cannot see what you see only what you say and we need you to say more.

Thanks. That's a valid URL (copy and past and it works) but your email reader is not interpreting the full URL correctly. I'll add this to the list of defects for rectification.
