      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. Again. I don't give a shit what they do. If they try to cut Steam out, honestly? I'll probably just not buy the games. I don't want 30 different download services for my own personal gaming collection. Choices are nice, but I found the best one and I want to stick with it.
  2. Yeah, I've been noticing these assholes raising the price up to $60 for PC games now. I'm sorry, exactly when did it cost more to put a game on PC than a console? Oh it doesn't? Okay. Just checking. I'm pretty sure console licensing costs, making discs, labels, packaging, shipping, etc all cost a HELL of a lot more than paying Steam to put it in their store and handle the logistics. Oh and if you're selling it in YOUR OWN PERSONAL GOD DAMN STORE, I'm pretty sure you have NO excuses at all to raise the price. Except that people will pay it. Thanks to all the people that bought CoD MW2 on PC (god knows why you would anyway). I'm pretty sure they made out like bandits because shit tons of games went up to $60 after that.
  3. What's with all this bickering and side stepping in this topic? Why is it wrong to say ALL the politicians have been insufferable douche bags and that they should tone down the rhetoric? And why is anyone REALLY trying to say that one side is worse than the other? If you're trying to paint Republicans or Democrats as being worse than the other, you haven't been paying attention to politics long enough to know better. They're equally as disingenuous and dramatic. Really. They are. Don't take people gawking at Sarah Palin's stupidity as some attack on the right and blow this whole thing off with "omg stop saying it's just Republicans" because that's not it at all. Sarah Palin is a moron. Period. I honestly don't think anyone here would disagree with that or the fact that her stupid ass map is unnecessary. Did she cause this to happen? Obviously not, no shit. Is that kind of rhetoric really necessary? No. Is anyone proposing a law to stop it? No. We'd just like to see them volunteer to stop being idiots for a while. It's getting ridiculous now. They're super charging every debate with as much partisanship as possible and wonder why everyone is worked up into a froth. This isn't healthy debate. It's a screaming contest. The only people that win are the politicians themselves. The longer they hold onto that office by making you hate the other guy more, the longer they have to hold on to those generous campaign donations. And honestly, I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with calling Sarah Palin a moron. I don't think anyone really has any issues with this, right? I'm pretty sure that calling Sarah Palin an idiot is relevant to every political topic because she sticks her dumb ass into every debate. This isn't an attack on the right or left. It's an attack on really...shut the hell up with your gun metaphors and theatrics. State your stance on the issues, quit attacking each other, and honestly...cross hairs on the districts? Are you fucking serious? Grow up. We want leaders, not children. I'm already getting tired of this shit and I've only been old enough to follow politics ~10 years.
  4. That's almost exactly what this PC was before I upgraded. I didn't use it enough either. Been using it a lot since I got my quad core and 4870x2. I started to game more on the old rig and realized I wanted an upgrade. Lol. Damn video card was expensive at the time too. >_<
  5. They'll get my money when they put it on Steam. I'm not going to their shitty store so that's pretty much it. If I have to wait for it...oh well. I have other games to play anyway. With my gaming backlog I have the advantage of time.
  6. All my stuff is in the sig. First time I've done that but since this is a gaming board, it seemed appropriate.
  7. If it ever came to Steam completely owning the market it would be pretty much because of how awesome Steam is. I pretty much don't buy any PC games outside of Steam myself as well. It's so much less of a pain in the ass to start up ONE program to launch all my games from and Steam sales are legendary. I mean, I don't know what better I could ask for from my service. I don't think that they SHOULD be the only service available but they're definitely the only one I generally use.

There wouldn't be much to see because it isn't an open case and I don't have and lights and shit inside.
  9. I'm pretty sure D2 was 8 as well. This certainly interests me. On the other hand, I think the only reason I even bought Torchlight was because I got it on a Steam Sale for like 5 bucks. I swear it goes on sale for 5 bucks during literally EVERY SINGLE Steam Sale. I sorely miss having multiplayer though. I ended up playing Titan Quest instead since I could actually play with friends. We'll see how close it releases to Diablo 3, because honestly...there's no way I'm going to play both if they release anywhere NEAR each other.
  10. I'm down. http://steamcommunity.com/id/webheaded
  11. Newzbin <_< Usenet service *cough* Wife's cooking website (yearly) I used to pay for Consumer Reports (used it for researching when I was buying a new car) but I realized that after a while...I didn't really use it anymore. Used to have Netflix too, but I was kind of irritated at how much harder it was to get Blurays and then they wanted to actually charge me MORE at the same time. I'll probably end up going back to them again eventually...though the way the media companies dick them around on the streaming stuff still irritates me to no end. They wonder why people pirate their stuff... I've also considering paying for a pro Slashdot account and donating to Reddit. I am, however, a cheap bastard and haven't gotten around to it yet. Pretty much when things go pay-only...I stop using it. There's always someone willing to do it almost as well as the paid sites for free. Pay for NYT? Lol. I'll go to another site, thanks.
  12. This is depressing. I like that place...I only started eating there a couple years ago. That being said, I can't say I'm super surprised. I knew they were super religious baptists of some kind...I was just hoping they were the neutral jesus loving kind that wanted peace and happiness instead of the hating gays and trying to throw them to the back of the bus kind. I hate it when businesses do shit like this. Just give me my food and shut up. You're a business...you're not supposed to want to split people like this. [face_sad]
  13. I was following this a lot and it's sick. This state needs to stop making the news for horrible things happening. I live here and this just makes me ashamed. We're better than this. While I don't think Sarah Palin caused this, I think all this hyper-partisian bullshit needs to stop. They get people frothing at the mouth and act amazed when something awful like this happens. It is irresponsible to make a map with CROSSHAIRS on it and tell people to RELOAD on your Twitter. WTF? How dense can you be? I hope that if one good thing comes out of this it is that the idiot politicians take it down a notch. They're not helping anyone. I'm not a tin foil hat, I'm just getting sick of this shit...from all sides.
