Re: Only Resolutions

- With the losing weight, I want to make more home cooked meals so we're not spending upwards of $100 a week on takeout, especially with the above mentioned electrolysis costs. We started keto on the weekend, and I'm going to take this as a chance to track down my old school projects to do a weekly...

Parenting with a partially disabled spouse

I love my wife dearly. We've been together for more than nine years, engaged for eight, married for coming up on seven. We have two beautiful children separated by 16 months, who are generally pretty good kids. They share, they look after each other, they ask where each other is. We do our best to p...

Re: Only Resolutions

Sometimes it is worth the effort and sometimes it isn't. You have to talk to the other person and find out where they are. Plus I know you are a very exacting person you may have to think about what is worth the fight and what you should let go. I let a lot of things go because they're important in...

Re: Behold: FirebirdNC, the Mad Moderator!

Ehhhxcellent *tents fingers* Have there been many issues where moderator action has been required? Maybe I’m just blissfully unaware of spammers or someone who have been misbehaving. At least now we have an ovarian scalpel to eradicate such ridiculousness :) There are two parts to the spam preventi...

Re: phpBB 3.3 upgrade complete

Looking at the database, seems I've been behind on hashes implemented, and md5 has been deprecated for some time. They switched to bcrypt (hash prefix $2y$10) for a bit, then Argon2id (hash prefix $argon2id), and, most recently, Argon2id with parameters (hash prefix $argon2id$v=19$m=1024,t=2,p=2, wh...

Re: Behold: FirebirdNC, the Mad Moderator!

I for one welcome our new marine overlady. Although I’m not going to mention her underground sugar-cave. Congratulations, Firebird. May your banhammer remain ever vigilant and may modified behaviour come swiftly to your enemies. She only gets the Edit Scalpel. The Banhammer resides in a locked safe...

Behold: FirebirdNC, the Mad Moderator!

Some of you may have noticed that I'm not on here regularly. But someone else is: FirebirdNC. With her approval, I have promoted her to moderator, with all the pain privilege that comes with it. At the same time, I have released Jezebel, Felan, and sneaky ninja from their responsibilities. This is m...

If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Re: phpBB 3.3 upgrade complete

It seems to me like XF has taken over the forum world, barring the the corporate forum farms for profit that still seem to mostly run some heavily bastardized versions of vBulletin. Ars Technica runs a modified version of phpBB, and I think is one of the largest forums that does so. There are a few...

Re: phpBB 3.3 upgrade complete

"Modern" would probably involve different forum software. But I still with phpBB because it's what I know and trust. I was going through some old files last night, looking, oddly enough, for some old files and found the upgrade set for phpBB 3.0...from about a decade ago. The crew is working on 4.0,...

Not the youngest. May 2007 here. I was reading the comic in 2001 I think but hadn't really joined any forums at that point. These days I rarely have time for more than a cursory glance at the forum every few days.
Well, you're doing better than me at checking in. :P

Behold: Rorschach, The Immoral Immortal!

All who read this post shall bear witness to the title bestowed upon our own Rorschach, he who conquered disease most foul while continuing his ribald traditions! Behold, the Immoral Immortal! Thank our good lady, FirebirdNC, for the suggestion some few moons past that a title for this man was long ...

phpBB 3.3 upgrade complete

Hey, everyone. Sorry about the outage. I did an upgrade on the server last night that broke backward PHP compatibility. Rather than figure that out, I opted instead to upgrade the forum to the version that works with PHP 7.3. Yay for supported functionality!
