Any ETA on when it will return?

Have you ever considered releasing the code for others to develop on it?

As I understand it, the code was developed by Ian Rons, and isn't LAShTAL's to release to others.

We can't release the code cause it's Ian's. I will take a look at what's going on during the day - it is very old code that is sensitive to changes made in PHP recently. It seems that this latest PHP has brought something that is crashing our Time Server. I will debug and fix as soon as possible. I have planned to write a completely new Time Server but I lack time. If anyone is willing to help me out PM me. πŸ™‚

Fixing this won't be that easy/fast. I will have to move the calendar to my laptop and work locally so that I don't interfere with the rest of the site's functionalities. Hopefully I will have it fixed by Monday. I am sorry for this inconvenience.

Update: I'm still working on solving the issue. Quite a few things seem to be broken and some parts of the code are just plain ancient. I think I will have it all fixed in a few days(limited time for this) but one thing is certain, I will have to write a new Thelemic Time Server.

I apologize to everyone using TTS on their websites - there is an empty space there now. Current TTS will be fixed soon but it isΒ  a matter of time when will it crack again. That said I will start working on a new solution as soon as possible.

What language is the current TTS written in, eol?

PHP and JavaScript. PHP language evolved(we're using the latest of PHP 5.4) and code didn't. I have mitigated some of the errors by disabling error displaying but this time that won't do. I have located the the source of this latest crash and will fix it as soon as possible. That, however, doesn't mean that things won't crash with next PHP upgrade.

I will probably write new server in Python. πŸ™‚

Hi all,

I'm working on TTS bugs - this is utter chaos. You just might see some ERROR messages on the main site at some point, sorry for that. I have solved the issue on my computer but it seems that server somehow differs... sigh. Expect an update soon.

Guess what, it works. I bet crossing the Abyss feels like fixing this piece of [...] code. There were three unrelated errors - one of them caused by PHP upgrade which triggered two other errors which were to explode sooner or later. It will work just fine for now... but I'm definitely starting a new TTS project. If you notice any errors let me know.

There, enjoy your Thelemic time. πŸ˜€
