Hi James,

Sorry it took me so long to reply - I read your email on my phone, so it 
didn't get automatically get dumped in my Wolves-LUG folder, and I 
forgot about it. Sorry.

Yes, they are a relic from debugging. They will be removed soon.

Currently, the new recipe form validation  logic *should* reject recipes 
with the same name. Different versions will have to have different 
names, prob describing the difference, eg "Wild mushroom soup" instead 
of "Mushroom soup".  The other duplicates probably found their way in 
during database import. There might have even been duplicates on the 
static site.

Yes, this is pure laziness on my part. In order to format dates, I have 
to really allow the user to select which format they would prefer, and I 
haven't even properly thought about user prefs yet. Anyway, the Japanese 
will be ok with this format!

Hmmm, yes, I know that's not RFC compliant, BUT modern browsers are able 
to cope with this, and it looks much better. I'll probably change them 
to _'s later on, but I'll need to write marshalling code to convert 
between the two (or store the recipe names with them already in there).

What, theres *NON* vegan margarine? That's most certainly Michelle's 
department... <dons teflon shoulder-pads>

Yeh, rite. That's one of the "kids" recipes from the old site. Heh, 
*that* one specifies vegan marge.

Looks like my login failure error handling is borked then.

At least something works ok.

I'm hoping to do a bit of work on the test site (on my home  Proxmox VE 
host) this week, and hopefully fix some of these.
