      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. I didn't have HBO before, but got it as part of this loyalty offer. They have a FAQ on their site saying it will be a $5 bill credit for the next 12 months. If you prepaid 3 months, the 12 months start after the prepaid period is over.
  2. When you log in to a service (say gmail) and they text you a code before gaining access. This, in theory, would need you to have a device on you that has already been authenticated on to verify it is you.
  3. You know what, I wonder if they actually did do this. If they had the foresight to take out insurance on the original actors, this should have been thought of as well. At least I'm hoping lol. Definitely could make the CGI more convincing, especially if they had her speak to get lip movement down.
  4. Current Version. Gen 4 AppleTV and second gen FireTV Stick.
  5. If only there was a way to search these things: https://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/?month-filter%5B%5D=5&year-filter%5B%5D=2015 Oh, yeah, they had nothing to do with emails.
  6. Would like to see the full un-edited version. Those could have been completely separate topics of discussion (where he says something about voter fraud & bussing people around). For all we know, he could be talking about running a service that will bring people to their respective polling place to vote not that they are bringing the same people to multiple polling places to cast multiple votes.
  7. It's not so much the negotiation/transparency of how much they will offer. It's about the practice of companies asking how much you currently make, so they can base their offer off of that. Say, the company (HR/hiring manager) have a salary range of 55-65K per year for a certain position. During the interview or even on the application they ask current salary (without ever mentioning what their range is for the position). If someone answers 30K, there would be some people who would jump at an offer of 50K. Even if a person has done research on what a typical position pays via payscale.com (since it could be reasonable that some companies pay on the lower end and 50K is closer to the average). Essentially, the company saved itself 5-15K because of what they made previously even though that should have no bearing on what they are worth and what presumably others are being paid.
  8. Good to know. A local article I read mentioned that specifically being in the bill...so if it's national policy, I wonder why they put it in the state bill (unless the article was wrong).
  9. Also prohibits company policies against employees talking about their salaries with each other.
  10. Brought to you by the police department that target practice using mug shots of black men: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mug-shots-in-target-practice-spur-sniper-training-suspension/
  11. This is actually a very well written article: http://www.redstate.com/leon_h_wolf/2016/07/08/uncomfortable-reason-came-dallas-yesterday/
  12. Wait so every year it's a moving goal post to basically make sure the party gets who it wants in? Our political system is such a joke. LOL.
  13. Wouldn't the more likely outcome be that walmart will undercut the second company in prices, driving them out of business and then leaving pay at a paltry $3/hour? Essentially that is what happened with Mom and Pop shops. Mom and Pop shops are more likely to have empathy towards their community and paying good wages. In comes walmart, undercuts the pricing and makes the small store close up shop. Mega corporations DO NOT CARE about the well being of their community. Only that of their profits and shareholders. Also, there's this: http://gawker.com/business-execs-support-progressive-policies-but-the-ch-1768898477 A poll done by a conservative polling group for the Chamber of Commerce is giving instructions on HOW TO IGNORE that 80% of business execs are in favor of raising minimum wage. They want to do it, just not be the first/only one to do it because they will get undercut by competition who does not (AKA my point above).
