An error began popping up today that I think came out of an upgrade in one of our peppers running on Mint. The downloads pepper (I think) was redirecting .php files (sometimes) and giving you the option to download them instead of to execute. I have heard from a few people that when they attempted to leave a comment, a dialog box to download the file came up instead. The pepper has now been removed, so if you run into such an error again, please let us know as soon as possible so we can try to get it fixed. I myself haven’t run into the problem since this morning.
Another thing that’s starting to bug me is recent outlash on the recent review of Sitepoint’s RoR book. Apparently, not everyone understands that regardless if a review is paid or not, the review is 100% honest. We don’t play favorites. One reader went so far as to unsubscribe simply because we accept paid reviews. There have been a total of three, yes, three paid reviews in the months I’ve been with with Review me. I’ve gotten plenty more offers, but I only accept requests from sites that are connected to design and development in some ways. I’m not trying to feed you “ads” or some other nonsense like I’m some politician playing favorites to an oil company. Rest assured that each and every one of our reviews is fair.
Feel free to vent (but play nice) on the issue below. We always strive to improve and make our readers happy, so your thoughts on the issue are welcomed.
One final note, be sure to check out Clearmint if you haven’t yet. It’s awfully nice ;).
