Updated from the test server
I have pulled the latest code from the testing server. We recieved no bug reports on this code so we assume everything is working properly. If you have any problems with this code please let us know.
Also as you may see we changed the layout of the front page a little bit. Give us some feedback on what you think.

I made a minor change to the site scheme where the site logo is also now an imagemap. If anyone has better ideas of where the links should point, comment here. We'll come to a concensus.

Latest Code Pushed
I have pushed the latest code from the testing server to the live site. The biggest change is that you now have to be validated in order to delete/re-activate your accounts. This will force users who are automatically deleted after being unvalidated for 10 days to validate before they can re-enable their journals.

Okay everyone, the latest code from the test server has been pushed live. I meant to mention it earlier, but I forgot cause I ran into a problem (accidently put a _ in the wrong place a blew the entire site up, totally my fault).
If you need to know what is in this update check codetesting

Okay everyone, I've written some new code, and added new cron jobs for the site.
1. Validation Checking
- This script checks to make sure that a user has validated their email address within 10 days of account creation. If they have not we assume that this account is not being used. Its status is the set to deleted. This action will NOT delete any of the users data, and it gives them a 30 day grace period in which to set their account back to activated AND validate their email address.
2. Data Purging
- This script checks for accounts that have had their status set to deleted for more than 30 days. It then takes those accounts. Removes all posts from their journal, sets all of their comments to Anonymous, and removes any other data (interests, styles, moodthemes, memories, etc.).
3. Username Reclaiming
- This script will check for accounts that have been purged for more than 10 days. It will then set there username to an empty value. This will allow that username to be re-used. We have determined this to be safe because all security related settings are refrenced based on your userid (the number assigned to your account) rather than the username. So when the username is re-used the user who now owns the deleted username will not be able to view any protected entries that the old user who previously owned that username was able to view.
If you didnt understand anything I just typed, you probably have nothing to worry about. Just make sure your email is validated.

Fixed Account Types
Account types have been fixed. I rolled back to somewhere between the old way and the new way of doing things. Its ugly but at least it works. I will play with the code some more tomorrow.
Did a big code update. A lot of things changed. I have to do some work on the account types to get everything back to normal. Dont worry no data was lost anywhere.

Okay, we now have our own IP address. All users should not have seen no downtime as I had the TTL on the zone set to 1 minute and I left the old server running for 1 minute. Along with this, I have removed support for the legacy domain http://journal.insanityspeaks.com/
This URL now sends you to a page the redirects you to http://www.insanejournal.com/
So far everything looks to have moved pretty damn smooth. I am going to wait a day, then bump the TTL on the zone back up to something sane (just incase I have to move back).
After it is fully tested, we will be able to support custom domains (such as pointing your.domain.tld to your journal). This combined with S2, which is coming along quite nicely. Which will allow you a totally customized journaling experience.
