When opening the HU for game x, FF asked me if I wanted to remember my PW, I probably said yes (weeks ago). Later when opening the HU of game y, putting it on hold, and accepting the changes the summary screen that you get at the end told me that I not only had put the game on hold,but that I had also changed the login+PW! I guess FF automatically filled in the remembered login settings directly into the HU ...

Something to keep an eye on.
(I haven't conducted any further testing yet, or other browsers.)

Interesting... probably the variables are named the same between the login page and inside HU itself, and when you save, it overwrites the previously saved values with your admin login values.

Sounds like I need to take a look at it.

FYI, .sy = Syrian Arab Replublic according to IANA. See http://www.iana.org/root-whois/index.html#s.

Not a source I would be inclined to trust without thorough checking of what the software really does and who the programmers are.

They probably only got a .sy domain because they call their product "dai.sy", they use that flower as symbol ... Similar to James McGuigan (Stars!FAQ) who tried to get a .sn domain to make have his website listed as "www.stars.sn" where the sn obviously stands for Super Nova, the site would cover both Stars! and Super Nova Genesis content ... (he never got it btw, but heck SN never made it as well ...)

Hehe, just for fun I did a quick lookup to see who had registered the name. lol, certainly wasn't expecting to get this answer:

Sorry, Syria doesn't seem to have WHOIS:
IANA has no contact information for .sy.

Hehe, not surprised to see FF and Flock as the first ones to get this dai.sy thing (so... what is it? the website doesn't seem to offer much explanation). XUL means that people can develop cross-platform add-ons and extensions for Mozilla software easily--as easy as making a webpage, in fact (I know, 'cuz I've tried. Wink).

This is also not unlike del.icio.us in its naming.

I represent the Mayopi Co.

We are a US Based Technology firm and are the creators of http://dai.sy

For all of those interested in trying Dai.sy, you will be happy to know that Dai.sy has been evaluated and supported by Mozilla.org
check for yourself: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3293/

furthermore Mayopi is an IBM Premiere Business Partner, a title not easily obtained.

In regards to the ".sy" domain extension, we are more then thankful to the Syrian technology firm that facilitated the extension on our behalf.

I hope all of you will give Dai.sy a chance and see dynamite tool it really is.

Thank You,

Federico ViCaDi
Founder and CEO of "the mayopi co." http://www.mayopi.com

But seriously, hehe, nice to see such a prompt and personalised response to our questions. While you are here, don't forget to check out the site, maybe we can get you addicted to playing Stars! Wink

Yea, I'm fairly surprised too. I wonder how he found it? The thread is fairly new so it shouldn't have come up in a search engine. So he must've been monitoring his server logs to see what sites were linking to dai.sy. (which is something that I admittedly compulsively do as well for some of my sites)

70% using Firefox? That's impressive.

I have a feeling this is a somewhat biassed figure though. People who -do- use Firefox see the thread title and vote. People who don't use Firefox ignore the thread entirely.

Ron - what do your access logs tell you?

The logs for Oct show IE at 54.6% and Firefox at 32.8%

The poll ask if you use Firefox on this site. That would mean do you ever access this site with Firefox. It is possible that ~70% of AH members use Firefox on AH at some points, but usually connect with some flavor of IE, and still have only ~33% of connections to AH be Firefox browser connections.
