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.)

Sad support ticket: somebody got a Django error page on a cryptocurrency trading site, hit the "Share this traceback" button, then hit the dpaste "Support" button in a cry for help with the broken site. Did I mention this is a CRYPTOCURRENCY TRADING SITE RUNNING IN DEBUG MODE

On the off chance that you've glanced at the dpaste.com "Current Inventory" list and noticed an apparent surge in the popularity of Common Lisp... I am sorry to inform you that it was spam. Fleshing out the blocklist now. dpaste.com/about

A user reported that the `%pastebin` magic command in ipython, submitting to dpaste, was receiving HTTP 400 responses. The cause: the 'python3' syntax name ipython submits is no longer valid (Python 3 is now 'python' and Python 2 is 'python2'). I've added logic to allow this to work again, and will put in a PR on ipython to fix. Grateful for the report!

Between about 4:15amET and 6:45amET the site had some intermittent database trouble (manifesting as "Oops, that didn't work" errors) due to DNS problems upstream. Sorry if you were one of the 100 requests that got the error. Better now.

The dpaste.com Mercurial repo has moved from BitBucket to a new software project platform, . It's in public alpha, but quite capable, and staunchly *not* trying to be a GitHub clone. Thanks Sourcehut! sourcehut.org/
