      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. Yeah, it's my favorite Star Trek series as well. Everything about it just stands a little higher than other Star Trek. The classic Star Trek debate seems to be Kirk vs. Piccard. I like Sisko better than either of them. If you haven't seen it, give Babylon 5 a watch.
  2. Oh, I'd definitely prefer Alan Wake 2, but it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon.
  3. Alan Wake - It looked great when it was released on the 360 so I can only imagine how much better it would look now.
  4. Do to the nature of our relationship with the Saudi government, we can do a thorough vetting of anyone coming here from that country. ISIS does not have a foothold there and there is no refugee problem with that country.
  5. He's not banning them on the basis of their religion though. He's blocking them based on the country that they're from. Their religion doesn't matter. If it was a Muslim ban, why can Muslims from Indonesia still come to the US?
  6. That's not the issue though. The courts aren't ruling on whether it's needed or not, they're ruling on whether the president has the authority to make that order. They're basing their decision on material that isn't even in the order. What he said previously shouldn't matter if it's not contained in the actual order.
  7. That's always been a thing though. What about the poor typewriter repair shops?
  8. This is scary. Here's the exact text of the executive order. Exactly where does it implement a religious test for immigration, or discriminate on religious grounds? The fact that judges have stopped ruling on the text of a law or EO and are now ruling on what they perceive as its intent isn't a check on the other two branches of government, but a blatant power grab that allows any federal judge to block anything they don't like for any reason they choose. https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/03/06/executive-order-protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry-united-states
  9. I like the LG G6. It doesn't come out for a few more weeks, but still . . .
  10. Backed Rising Sun on Kickstarter. I love Eric Lang's games and the miniatures look so good.
  11. Does anyone have one of these devices? The complete gadget nerd in me definitely says I should get one, but I question its usefulness. The two big features I always hear mentioned are voice controlled music playback and the ability to quickly/easily order stuff. I have a Groove Music account on my Xbox which is connected to a great 5.1 home theater system. I use that for music. I don't see the ordering features of this device being useful to me and I don't have any smart home devices for it to control. Are there other activities this does that I might find useful?
  12. Picked up the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer board game. Haven't had a chance to play it yet, but it's been described as a lighter version of Eldritch Horror.
  13. I preordered the Ultimate Edition from the Xbox Store and it said it would come up the Halo Wars Definitive Edition. I assumed that I'd get the code early for the original one and could play that until launch, but I have not received any code for the Definitive Edition yet. Has anyone else purchased this? Will I need to wait for Halo Wars 2 to come out before I'll be able to play the original?
  14. Is that game an actual board game or is it more of a tabletop miniatures type game?
  15. A sequel or remake of the fighting game Mace: The Dark Age.
