[Low Priority]
The BOINC Milestones app on Facebook used to post on my wall when I reached major milestones, e.g., hitting 23,000.000. However, it hasn't posted anything recently when I did hit some milestones.

Anyone know why? Some new Facebook setting that I have to change, the app is no longer working for anyone, or something else?

Thanks

FB is doing some stuff behind the scenes. Check out this article: http://observer.com/2012/09/broken-on-purpose/

Looks like when I try to access the app page it tried to load something. Then poops out and takes me back to my main page. Perhaps the developer for the app is no longer maintaining it.
