Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

"Stripping of Non-Printable Chars in the Who Is Online Page"

Stripping of Non-Printable Chars in the Who Is Online Page

Noticed that after changing our site and HTML be to UTF-8 compliant per HTML5 standards, we started to see unprintable chars in the country and city name from the geoip database which converts IP addresses to country and city names. So, I just added this code to that PHP plugin which seems to do the trick:

    $clean = preg_replace('/[\x00-\x1F\x7F]/u', '', $record->city . ", " . $record->country_name); 
     $userinfo['geoip_country_name'] = $clean; 
else { 
    $clean = preg_replace('/[\x00-\x1F\x7F]/u', '', $record->country_name); 
    $userinfo['geoip_country_name'] = $clean; 

I did a check and seems that problem has been solved, or at least a bandaid fix to another issue I don't have time to look into at this time.
