      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. Unfortunately FX processors are not power efficient. Did we establish yet if it will work in your motherboard? As long as the power supply is a good brand, running it close to its limit shouldn't be a problem. I've run systems with seemingly ridiculously underpowered PSU's, it's not as big an issue as some people think.
  2. I'm still a bit nervous about VIII. I want it to carve its own way and be set apart from the rest of Star Wars, and I'm also worried they might make Luke a bit too brooding and emo, in reflection of Mark's protests about the character. There's just so much they can get wrong, it seems impossible to live up to expectations. At the same time I'm excited as hell, so it's not a regrettable state of mind either.
  3. That's pretty dumb. They might as well ask Google for all their private emails just because they hate them.
  4. See, if we just didn't regulate anybody, this situation would better. ...Right?
  5. He can declassify information at will, it's OK.
  6. Don't see vintage games like that at yard sales a lot. Good find.
  7. He was my least favorite Bond.
  8. Y'all know there's basically no price difference between the RX 570 and RX 580 right now, right? Cheapest 570. Cheapest 580. Suddenly my advice on the previous page doesn't seem so ridiculous now, huh?
  9. It's a bit strange. It happened in March and he's only announcing this now. I read the article and I guess he said he'd be returning to the film initially? Can't imagine what he was thinking to say that.
  10. I recommend buying the new graphics card and taking the $200 left over from your budget and building it up for an overhaul later on. Especially if you'd end up with a RX 580 or GTX 1060 either way.
  11. Some misinformation going on in this thread, particularly from @BlueAngel. Running in Vulkan mode I can play Doom rock solid maxed at 2560x1080 at an unflinching 75 fps on my Phenom II. Seriously, stop guessing.
  12. No he would. It will definitely be bottlenecked, but his card right now is slower than my old 5870 was, and the improvement going to my 480 was massive on a very similar CPU. I just don't think there's a reason to go with a lesser card. The 580 is in a very good sweet spot for the money.
  13. I wouldn't buy anything better than a 580 with that CPU.
  14. I don't think shitting in the same spot of the bathtub every day makes a person respectable.
  15. Yeah this is balls. Not seeing it at all.
