Technology & Information / Re: Twitch Pricing
« on: November 12, 2019, 06:30:20 PM »
And if you are reading this thinking "just watch with the adverts" then you aren't someone who has ever tried to watch Twitch and been smashed with 5 ads on the bounce every 5 mins. And its not like TV where the program stops during the adverts. Oh no. The stream goes on only you can't follow it until the ads are over.

Never heard of adblockers?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: A question to our resident Brexiteer
« on: November 07, 2019, 07:56:11 AM »
Well that is kind of it. If you provide either of those two options, you haven't solved the problem. It will never ever go away until we leave the EU properly. Millions of people like me will just keep voting out and out and out in every election forever more. We don't move on until the vote is respected. We can't move on. Because our vote is just a democratic placebo if it isn't respected, and there isn't any point in voting for anything else ever if they choose what to respect and what to ignore. So we fuck up every other election from now until we die until they deliver the thing we voted for in 2016. I'll vote UKIP, Brexit party, Monster raving looney party, independent, whatever is tactical and hurts the main parties the most until Brexit is done. In local elections, European elections, general elections, referendums ...

We're not moving on. It needs delivering.

What happens if there's a second Brexit referendum and the result is Remain? Which referendum should be respected then?

Maintenance complete.

I've also enabled caching for the wiki, which should hopefully make it a bit snappier.

The homepage, forum and wiki will be going offline for about 5 minutes on 2019-10-26, between 09:00 and 09:15 UTC.

In your local time (if you are logged in and have your time offset correctly configured), this is:

Some prepatory maintenance work is going to be carried out to facilitate future plans. This does not impact any existing services, but does require a reboot.

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

The wiki is back online. It's having its share of teething problems, so if you notice anything that seems off, please let me know.

Maintenance is mostly done. The wiki is still offline for now, as I'm still trying to get the migration to work.

The homepage, forum and wiki will be going offline for up to 30 minutes on 2019-10-20, between 09:00 and 09:30 UTC.

We are going to migrate the wiki to a new database system, the same one used by the forum. We are also going to be doing some database tuning to adjust it to the new server we migrated to last month.

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

So I slept through this window by accident. Whoops.

I'll schedule another for next weekend. There are some other changes I'd like to make anyway.

Parsifal has taken the Star Citizen approach to development progress.

Almost as if I'm a student now...

But if it is true, isn't it more accurate to say that he's the only one responsible? He'd just be facing the natural fall out and consequences of his own actions. If people are caught the legal way doing horrible things and then commit suicide in jail (or while out on bail before trial or during the investigation), is it the legal system that drove that person to committing suicide? Or their own shame at being found out?

The important difference is that, when you get convicted with due process, you are given the opportunity to present your case to defend yourself. Even if you get convicted, you still have a voice and an opportunity to have both sides heard fairly.

There is no such opportunity with these SJW witch hunts.

The server needs to be rebooted in order to complete the unblock for sending mail as described in the previous maintenance thread.

Yes. I did that deliberately.

Do you have an actual point and/or problem, or are you just shitposting in Announcements for the hell of it?

In the 7 years I have been on this site, I have never received a single e-mail from the forum.

That is because you have disabled e-mail notifications in your settings.

I've already noticed one broken thing: Outbound e-mail is blocked by the new hosting provider. I've raised a ticket for this, but in the meantime you won't be able to receive e-mails from the forum.

For now, I've worked around this by proxying mail via the old server, so it should now work again. I don't expect a reply from the new hosting provider on this issue until Monday.

Maintenance complete. I still have some cleanup steps to take but everything should be operational now. Let me know if anything seems wonky.

The server which hosts the homepage, forum and wiki is to be migrated to a new hosting provider at this time. No user-facing changes are expected.

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

Recently, Forbes had the following to say about star citizen

None of this is news.
