I've upgraded the SSD and reinstalled Windows. Now just to install some games...

Nice. When does it arrive? And what are you going to play other than Scam Shitizen?

It arrived literally half an hour ago. I am now creating a Windows 10 USB installation stick so I can get a clean install of Windows without the Dell crapware (and also so I can install to a bigger SSD).

I'll probably play some Dark Souls, Witcher 3, and of course the great classic of our times, Euro Truck Simulator 2.

So I found a good deal on eBay and snatched it up.

http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Dell-Inspiron-15-7567-7000-Laptop-3-8ghz-16GB-1920x1080-4GB-GeForce-GTX-1050Ti-/292203250345

Kaby Lake i7, 16 GiB of RAM and a 1050 Ti for under €1000. The SSD is a little small, but I happen to have brought a bigger one with me to Europe that I can swap in.

This should be able to play all current titles, and likely all future titles until such time as I have a more permanent home and can build a proper gaming PC.

Guys, can we please keep the bickering out of S&C? This is not the purpose of the thread.

I don't have a strong opinion either way, mainly because my eye for design is comparable to that of a sea slug. I'm happy to go with whatever everyone else wants.

(But also welcome!)

Not that I disagree, but how exactly has the "society" condemned this? This is the first I've heard of it.

Instead of fixing the old webchat, I've installed some new, actively maintained, and apparently more mobile-friendly software.

There are still some odds and ends I need to take care of, but nothing that should be visible to anyone else.

The part of the maintenance requiring downtime is complete, and the homepage, forum, wiki and IRC server are back up. The IRC webchat interface still appears to be broken; I'm working on fixing that right now.

The homepage, forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for up to 2 hours on 2017-06-18, between 08:00 and 10:00 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2017-06-18, 04:00-06:00

BST (UK):
2017-06-18, 09:00-11:00

CEST (Most of Europe):
2017-06-18, 10:00-12:00

AEST (Australia east coast):
2017-06-18, 18:00-20:00


The server will be upgraded to a newer stable release of its operating system. This introduces the risk that problems will arise after the maintenance; in case any are noted, please create a thread in Suggestions & Concerns so that we can deal with it. Thank you.

As SexWarrior said, this really isn't the place to have this discussion. Locked.

The homepage, forum, wiki and IRC will be going offline for about five minutes on 2017-05-23, between 09:00 and 09:15 UTC.

For convenience, this means:

EDT (USA east coast):
2017-05-23, 05:00-05:15

BST (UK):
2017-05-23, 10:00-10:15

CEST (Most of Europe):

We will be updating SMF from 2.0.13 to 2.0.14, which is a larger patch than normal. We will also be taking this opportunity to update the Tapatalk integration code with the latest SMF fixes. While we are endeavouring to test the change as thoroughly as possible beforehand, please report any problems that may arise after it has taken place, either in this thread or in a new thread in S&C (the latter being preferred for bigger issues).

During this maintenance window, we will also be installing security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, forum, wiki and IRC. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.


For details of the changes we will be applying, see these GitHub commits:

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: CN Mobile Formatting
« on: May 17, 2017, 10:50:36 AM »
While we're considering this, it might also be worthwhile making CN more colour-blind-friendly. I know we've had colour-blind users in the past who have complained about the juxtaposed red and green.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: CN Mobile Formatting
« on: May 16, 2017, 11:37:17 PM »
It's something we're aware of. Blanko is the only one here with decent visual design skills (he made our main theme), and he was going to rework CN at one point, but I think he may have gotten distracted by IRL. Thanks for the reminder, I'll remind Blanko about it if he doesn't see this thread first.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Believers section / rank
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:11:42 PM »
This thread is in S&C now. Please try to keep it on topic, everyone.

As has been noted by SexWarrior elsewhere, this hasn't had good results in the past, as it relies on someone (probably the forum admins) trying to figure out who is a "true" believer. That's a very difficult proposition on a forum which encourages playing devil's advocate as a way of examining new ideas.

If consensus is reached that this is a good idea, I will go ahead and set it up. As it stands, this idea is supported by only one person.

The maintenance took longer than expected due to an issue with login credentials for the hosting provider's rescue console, so I couldn't make sure the system came back up. I will be investigating and fixing that tonight.

This maintenance is done.

The intent is to install security updates on the server which hosts the homepage, forum, wiki and IRC. These will be non-disruptive to functionality, as the server is running a stable OS release that gets critical fixes only.
