      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. Not to mention pointy elbows.
  2. That's America, silly.
  3. ... cool.
  4. Some of the gems from the greatness that is /r/dataisbeautiful today
  5. Bummer
  6. Well, I mean, a counterpoint to that would be a movie like Ocean's Eleven, which manages to both introduce and develop a metric fuckton of characters that almost all have meaningful arcs and purposes. Then again, that was Steven Soderbergh, this is Zack Snyder.
  7. Monday is the start of the week, for sure. Although for me personally, that would be Tuesday. Or maybe Wednesday. I have a weird schedule.
  8. Why do you think ESPN shows basically only talked about this for a full day? They absolutely are pissed. It was one thing for fans to get upset (remember when the Suns offered a partial refund when someone rested against them a couple years ago?), but when TNT or ESPN market a game all week only to have the ratings down 90% because everyone called in sick that day, you can bet your ass Adam Silver heard about it. Now they're fucking with the network's revenue, which in turn fucks with the league's revenue, which means in another few years the players will get fucked in the next CBA. Putting all of this into code will be hard, though. there's nothing Silver can do about teams resting a guy because he has a "pulled hamstring." They're also not going to shorten the season.
  9. I'll eat Subway when I'm desperate at 3am because they have $4 delivery on postmates. That's about it.
  10. I was going to say that we don't know for sure whether this is a reboot at all. Everyone just got in a tizzy. It looks like it won't be.
  11. This whole thing seems blown out of proportion. It doesn't seem at all like Hannity was doing it to be threatening, he's just an idiot. Another piece of gun safety 101 is that you always, ALWAYS check to see if there's a round in the chamber when someone hands you a weapon or when you take one out of its holster etc. You still shouldn't fucking aim it at anybody, but a friend of mine once freaked out at me for flagging him with an unloaded handgun that wasn't even fucking assembled. People can get ridiculous.
  12. I don't understand the logic of this at all. There are both objectively more people on the planet than there has ever been and fewer tasks that require mass human labor than there has ever been. You're basically saying we can have an entire economy based on skilled artisans, salesmen, and artists (which is what we're heading towards). All of those jobs require popularity to be successful, and not everybody can be popular. We went from the vast majority of humans having to work in agriculture, to the vast majority of humans having to work in industry, to... what? Are we going to start training every human to be a skilled tradesman? There's a reason almost all skilled trades are unionized. I'm baffled by the idea conservatives have that "the market will correct itself." It hasn't been doing that for 35 fucking years.
  13. That's the idea. Provide a basic safety net so that people are free to take risks that keep the economy moving.
  14. It baffles me how some people can't realize that pure capitalism (or at least as pure as we have it now) is destined to fail. In a capitalist society, the expectation is placed on the individual to do something that contributes to society, and that individual is rewarded based on the value of that contribution. That's all fine and good, but what happens when society simply runs out of things for everyone to do? We don't need most farmers anymore. We don't need most paralegals anymore. Pretty soon the vast majority of waiters, retail salesmen, truck and cab drivers will be obsolete. Eventually the excuse of "well, they should have picked a better career field" doesn't work. What these billionaires who support UBI seem to realize is that our whole society will collapse (their businesses along with it) if no one has any fucking money to spend. It's basic fucking logic.
