      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. OOC what did you think was great about the story? I thought the setup was potentially interesting (so I was excited for it before release), but then they never seemed to go anywhere interesting with it.
  2. If that's their reasoning, their executives should be immediately fired and replaced with people who prioritize making money. FF and X-Men I can understand though, because in principle they might be able to make money from that (and they do in the case of X-Men)
  3. This seems odd to me. What are they holding out for? What's the long term value of just sitting on it doing literally nothing? Especially if they lose the rights to all but IV. The only financially viable option that I can imagine is selling it to someone willing to buy it. What am I missing here?
  4. I actually agree with DVD (*gasp*) on this point. Lab experimentation is not nearly as controlled as we might think. More importantly though, it's not the engine of science. The engine of science is testing the predictive power of hypotheses. Laboratory experimentation is a useful tool for testing large sets of predictions, but the lab control isn't the point, just the means. The extent to which concrete predictions from hypotheses can be tested is the extent to which science may be done, and astrophysics absolutely has means to test predictive power. Now theoretical physics... that you can make some jabs about since they often remain in the mathematical space without testing the predictions. But I'm generally happy to count it as science, because it encompasses a really important stage of the entire scientific process (developing a hypothesis) and their work is usually built with the goal to someday test them. I see them as a specialization in the entire scientific enterprise.
  5. That doesn't seem consistent with what they're describing at the moment. What they're describing wouldn't require ads to get on their ad service. It just requires them not to be irritating dicks. I often wonder if the egregious ads actually see increased revenue as a result of their shitty tactics. When an ad is super annoying, I'm not exactly having good thoughts toward the product being advertised and almost want to boycott it out of spite. That doesn't seem like the desired effect.
  6. I think you want a game engine to be able to scale to use all the parallel CPU available, although any specific game should target something that provides some headroom for other processes (like, streaming, which he mentioned just prior).
  7. If only there was some prior evidence that people don't like when a mainline Halo game doesn't focus on MC so that they didn't have to learn this the hard way...
  8. Thanks! Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if he takes the record when all is said and done based on that.
  9. Despite absolutely being into games when this released, I somehow was completely unfamiliar with this game! I just watched some of the controversial scenes and they're incredibly tame. wtf america.
  10. Yeah it seems like a pretty challenge goal.
  11. I'm not personally especially worried about google because so much of their business strategy is beneficial to lots of people, including other companies. For example, their open sourcing of tensorflow is rather huge, and while it does serve them financially (because they can sell cloud services with special hardware for that kind of compute) it also gives a lot of smaller companies tools to bootstrap themselves. As far as content on things like youtube, I'm not sure there is an appreciation for the enormous cost to run a place like youtube. My understanding was they were not making money for a long time, and I'm not sure if that's even changed. At the same time, it has given tons of individuals and small groups lots of opportunities that never existed before. I'd be curious to see what a comprehensive analysis on its overall net effect is. Even if there is a problem, I'm not sure what the solution is. The segment was short, so maybe he has better ideas, but merely opening up the patents doesn't seem like it would help. Again, youtube costs a fuck ton to run and it's hard to monetize, so it's unclear to me how more patent licenses being available would open it up for alternatives that better serve content creators.
  12. Seven and a half.
  13. Why would that title spoil infinity war? Maybe I'm missing an implication from the comics?
  14. So, what is the record for EO's being blocked by judges and how on track is Trump to beating it?
