    Hi Rob

    Can you think of any reason birthdaylist.js would just stop working. It was working fine up to yesterday, and wam, it just locks up the system. You can see the curser blinking on the remote end, and that's it. It's not throwing any errors, it just locks up everytime. I have not made any changes or added anything to the system in several weeks, so I can rule out operator error on my part. I had one new user log in and register 0n 5/13/2022, and I noticed it stopped working after that. I don't see anything in his settings that would cause a problem. He did use a birthdate of 19810101, so I changed that thinking that may be the problem, and no change. I've also tried to use it using the sysop ;EXEC command, and it just locks up the system also. For now I have just removed it, but I'd like to solve the issue. Since it's not throwing any errors, is there a way to debug it that would be easy for me to see what is going on. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Rob

    Can you think of any reason birthdaylist.js would just stop working. It was working fine up to yesterday, and wam, it just locks up the system.

    And by "the system", I'm guessing you just mean the current node.

    You can
    see the curser blinking on the remote end, and that's it. It's not throwing any errors, it just locks up everytime.

    Do you get the same behavior when running it using jsexec?

    I have not made any changes or added
    anything to the system in several weeks, so I can rule out operator error on my part. I had one new user log in and register 0n 5/13/2022, and I noticed it stopped working after that. I don't see anything in his settings that would cause a problem. He did use a birthdate of 19810101, so I changed that thinking that may be the problem, and no change.

Since it's not throwing any errors, is there a way to debug it that would be easy for me to see what is going on. Thanks in advance.

    No immediate ideas. I probably start adding log() lines to exec/birthdaylist.js and load/birthdays.js to find out exactly where is locking or infinite-looping (more likely).

    Yes, just the node. Sorry, I should have said that

    You can

    throwing any errors, it just locks up everytime.

    Do you get the same behavior when running it using jsexec?

    Yes, heres a screen print. it gets to the last line, then locks
    up the window with the curser blinking a "-" just under the last line.

    Seeing this, I tried to jsexec c:\sbbs\exec\load\birthdays.js, and it did the same thing, locked up, curser sits and spins.

    I just don't understand why the program worked flawlessley for months on end, then stops on the 12th with a new user logs in. Also, I checked, windows did an update late on the 12th also, just discovered this today.

    The next step is to add some log() lines to load/birthdays.js and let me know what's displayed before the hang:

    Okay, so it climbs to 270 and then jumps back down to 12? That definitely sounds like a bug.

    Do you mind sending me (ftp or email) your system's user.dat file so I can reproduce and fix the issue? I'll delete it when I'm done. If you're not okay with that, then we can try to work out some other ways of debugging this, but I definitely would like to root-cause and fix it.

    This section below keeps repeating over and over the same thing till I shut down the system. It won't let me exit.

    Please try running 'jsexec userlist' and let me know if you encounter a similar infinite loop. It has very similar logic to birthdays.js.

    I just sent it to you on your bbs. val_user.zip Thanks

    Thank you! Was able to reproduce and fix. I'm not sure why it was only your userbase that reproduced it, but it was a legit bug!

    Thanks Rob, I'll do an update this week, and let you know how it does.

    So I got the bottom of it and there was a bug in load/birthdays.js as well (which caused the issue to *not* occur on systems with at least one deleted or inactive user record). So good find! Thanks for the issue report and patience to work through it.

    Works like a charm. It was indeed a two part problem. I tried loading the new load/birthdays.js without doing the update, and got the same issue, but after doing the update, all is fine, and working well. Thanks so much.
