Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Aw man, only works on Linux, not on BSD/Mac OS X.

These don't convert to title case. Title case is different than capitalizing the first letter of each word.

Comment by nivek1385 75 weeks ago

While it may not be "proper" title case, it certainly goes a long way to doing most of the work for you.

Comment by pdwalker 20 weeks and 1 day ago

Volt, either install a gnu compatible sed under MacOSX, or rewrite it to use the MacOSX sed syntax.
