      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. Lol wtf this is like cartoon super villian
  2. A page full of Americans saying this is bad for consumers and then a Canadian saying it's awesome for consumers. Good show.
  3. Those claims above sound like the definition of libel if they weren't backed by facts.
  4. Same reason for any prosecutable action. The community -- through their elected legislators -- has determined it to be behaviour unfit for the society they want.
  5. You don't have to imagine it. The world exists beyond the borders of the USA.
  6. welp those videos sure are hella different. i think that does illustrate the difference between the hillary campaign and the trump campaign. that being said, i'm not entirely sure that "running as a continuation of a previous president" was a stupid idea. Obama was looked upon very favorably. "more of the same" would've been a good thing to run on, but she should've owned it and she didn't. imagine an ad with the same high energy as the trump advertisement, except instead of speaking of how bad things were and how they were going to change things, speak of how great things are and how they're going to improve things "we've passed ACA, now every american can have insurance. and we're going to work in your corner to continue with more benefits like eleiminating pre-existing conditions blah blah blah... unemployment has fallen over the past four years but we're not stopping we're going to keep working to get america to work blah blah.." and so on. i think it could've worked. but yeah, the campaign that was there didn't and probably couldn't have worked.
  7. I tried one of the noise cancelling Bose headphones at a Best Buy display. Pretty snazzy.
  8. Well yes. Because today a 30 million popular vote would be effectively impossible to do without also having an EV victory. But 30 years ago (or hell any time prior to 5 months ago) a 3 million popular vote victory without an EV victory was also inconceivable. Demographics change. The coastal states are going to get more liberal and more populous, and the interior states will continue to become more irrelevant in every way except wrt to the Senate and the presidential elections. Prior to the election I said that 2004 might be the last time the Republicans win the election for a long time. I was wrong. 2016 will not be the last time either. However, barring some significant changes which the Republicans now have no incentive to make, 2004 will be the last time the Republican presidential candidate ever wins the popular vote.
  9. Trump won by negative 3 million votes. In 2 or 3 decades the next candidate like Donald Trump will win by negative 30 million votes. If d1p is still around I suspect the same arguments will be rehashed, trying to find fault in the losing campaign rather than acknowledging the flawed system.
  10. lbr here, several million more Americans did vote for Clinton than Trump. The fault lies in your broken political system that will likely continue to result in buffoons like trump being elected.
  11. GOOD point. BTW, I drink like 4 or 5 cans of coke zero a day.
  12. Well I wouldn't support a 100% tax but I'd definitely be in support of a marginal tax system that ratchets up to maybe 80 or 90% on incomes above $425k. And no, "every rich person" will not flee the country. For the most part -- they can't. If you're a partner in a law firm, your ability to earn your $425k income is probably going to be hampered if you leave the country where your law firm operates.
