[ok] DNS gone to the bar....
« on: October 02, 2015, 12:10:27 AM »
So, seems there's a bug in DNS or how the game is handling where folks are bouncing in from. Let's play along in Chrome.

1. Play a game, have a logged in session, etc.
2. Close browser (or visit different page) while fetching a beer or two.
3. Navigate to http://airwaysim.com/game to give your CEO a raise.
4. Note that you aren't logged in? Log in again? OK. Then you get an error saying you're already logged in.
5. Repeat step 3.
6. Notice you're still not logged in.
7. This time, try http://www.airwaysim.com/game and find that you really are logged in, and the non-triple-dubya version is some form of imposter.
8. ....
9. Profit.

Disagree. Not fixed.

Now, going to airwaysim.com/game sends me back to www.airwaysim.com

I assume there is a failover dns in place which is probably what happened.  You were logged in on the primary and it failed over to a replica where all those session variables weren't set and needed to be set again.  Chrome actually caches DNS entries and you may just need to flush the cache manually: chrome://net-internals/#dns

The redirect to www (for all cases when trying to access without www) is intentional, since the system is designed to be played through one domain/subdomain.

Understand on the single sub domain, but shouldn't it also push me through to the page requested? Ie take me to /game while injecting the www?
