      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. I never thought it was ridiculous. The 470 used to be much cheaper than the 480. I was just going off of that.
  2. The 6300 would was a neat chip and has decent value and it would be better than a 6 core phenom. However, he will be fine with a 570 to hold him over until he can afford a new motherboard, ram, and CPU. My my advice is save up for a R5 1600 with an Asus Prime X370.
  3. What about getting a phenom x6 and the RX 570. 2 extra cores would buy him a little more time and shouldn't be as demanding as a higher clocked 8350. I don't know what they cost these days though.
  4. A 570 4GB card is a perfect stop gag for his situation. It's the most bang for your buck. Put the savings towards a new rig.
  5. I finished Sapiens and have to second SFLUFAN's recommendation. It's good. @Ghost_MH @SFLUFAN I'm starting Homo Deus now on Audible. It's the only way I have time for this stuff.
  6. I would get a R5 1600 on the cheaper end or an i7 7700 on the higher end of the price range. I would feel more comfortable with the higher core/thread count of the R5 overall and a longer life on the AM4 socket.
  7. This is better than I could have hoped!!
  8. I look forward to it. I watched Twin Peaks a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I hope the new one lives up to the original series. I don't have Showtime, so I may get it a few weeks into the show and then binge it.
  9. I don't mind them using the name if it gives us some weird sci fi stuff that would otherwise not do well.
  10. This will blow over in a couple of weeks. Who said that again?
  11. Epyc has nothing to do with gaming. You should drop the bulldozer comparisons since it doesn't accurately describe the current state of CPUs.
  12. I still expect the top consumer Vega to be around 7% faster on average than a 1080. It won't be faster than a 1080Ti on average, and on top of that, AMD is being incredibly vague on when it will be released. I just told a friend to just go with a 1080 on their new rig, otherwise consumer Vega appears to be a July or August release (maybe September at this point who knows?). I have to say AMD really fucking dropped the ball on gamers even as I support their strategy of trying to get a foot in the door with the deep learning market. The problem is Vega is taking too long, and they allowed Nvidia to run unopposed with the 1070 and 1080 for way too long. AMD should have been releasing their deep learning Vega cards around early April and had their consumer cards launched by June 1st. The rumors point to supply issues with HBM2. That's too bad AMD can't seem to get it together. Edit: Also, Nvidia is ready to make Vega completely irrelevant in a matter of months. AMD will have nothing until Navi I guess. The only thing they got going for them now is freesync monitors.
  13. They didn't mention when consumer cards for gaming would be released and I am going to wait for benchmarks before I get excited. We don't know what settings they were running.
