Made some improvements to the geolocation lookup on the "About" page. Using Django's bundled GeoIP2 feature (http://bit.ly/geo-django) instead of rolling my own made the implementation shorter, more robust, and -- thanks to local datasets from MaxMind -- faster.
A belated writeup about the latest round of changes to the site: https://news.e-scribe.com/post/dpaste-3/
dpaste users are everywhere! Random selection from the 144 locations logged in the last two days:
Aalborg, Region Nordjylland, Danmark
City of Westminster, England, United Kingdom
Delft, Zuid-Holland, Nederland
Göttingen, Niedersachsen, Deutschland
Junagadh, Gujarat, India
Madrid, Comunidad de Madrid, España
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Градска општина Стари град, Централна Србија, Србија (Serbia)
شهر تهران, ایران
New feature for logged in users - favorites! Great for teams who use dpaste. Click the star in the button bar to save any item to your list, which lives at https://dpaste.com/yours
Finally settled on a domain for my app.
FOSS, client side, private contact sharing!
Spread the word (I think it's really cool and you should too, kthx)
Obscure dpaste.com fact of the day: item IDs are base 32, with the digits chosen to minimize ambiguity. No zero or one or the capital letters that look like them. In case you need to read one to somebody or transcribe it without copy/paste. (They're also case-insensitive, though uppercase is canonical.)
