Register Globals: a thing of the past

And so we switched off the register_globals PHP directive on the OSNews server. Yes, it was ON all these years, because the original osnews and gnomefiles code was written back in 2001, when the directive was ON by default and all PHP books and sample code at the time were fully using it.

Thankfully, this is now a thing of the past, and better, more secure, days are upon us. A big thanks to Adam for all his help transitioning all the web sites on the server.
