New strange behaviour on sourceforge
« on: October 02, 2014, 08:48:33 am »
This morning, when trying to connect to sourceforge to see if there is something new by http://sourceforge.net/p/codeblocks/code/log/, I have obtained this message in French (on 2 different PC) :

In the french version, some words are pasted, quite strange too.
Is it a normal behaviour or something which looks like phishing ? I'm trying to connect to Sorceforge, not SlashdotMedia..
Can I click the button "Accept cookies" without danger ?

Viewing the svn log in Sourceforge is quite slow. I don't know why. :(
I suggest you to use the web interface through many mirrors listed Developer documentation - CodeBlocks.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

I think this is fine.

The owner seems the same...

I think there won't be any problems.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

OK. Thanks. (I cross my fingers as we say in French ...) ???
