Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This weekend, I put together a small application to check if the frontpages of various sites were updated. It does this by doing a HEAD request and checking the ETag and Last-Modified headers, if present, to see if some significant change has been made to the page. If neither is present, it goes a GET request, hashes the page contents, and uses that as the fingerprint.
For some reason, each time it fetches http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic, it gets different ETag and Last-Modified headers, which shouldn't happen as, aside from the ad at the top of the page changing, there's no other significant changes. Is there any chance the site could be tweaked to properly support the ETag and Last-Modified headers and give them more reasonable values?
(Aside: I'm posting this here because there's no technical contact details on the main site, and none given in the "About this forum" topic.)
