I really liked that E1 "Monster saw you" sound, which literally went ".rar".

Apparently I only changed the default and did not see that the "authenticated user" role used another setting that overrode the default. Silly. It should function now.

I checked and couldn't find out what was wrong. Could you quote the error message (removing file paths if they exist ;) )?

The only problem I could possibly see is if your file is larger than the 4 MB limit. I've raised that to 6 just in case.

Also, new features.

- Next to the CSR score and rank that is already displayed on scenario pages, there is now a link directly to the corresponding topic on the Lyceum. Besides convenience, scraping the data without advertising the origin just would not be polite.

- Below the scenario, a list of the topics that reference it (by full name, in the topic title, correctly spelled) in forums 7, 15 and 18 is displayed. This list is pulled off PPP and cached for a day because of the long time it takes to process PPP searches.

I was planning to add a post search (with even longer caching times), but that will have to wait until PPP's post search stops sucking by searching signatures. Scenario titles are listed in signatures enough to render the search useless.

Not to be discarded, actually. The cost is about 15 dollars per year. On one hand, it would be possible to get that back with Adsense, on the other I don't know if placing ads on a reproduction of Jeff's intellectual property is legally sound.

The Bach Fugue in E1! It would win if only midi were not unilaterally awful when compared to normal music.

As it is, I like Nethergate's and A2's best.

The only opening music I didn't like was that of GF2. Too repetitive...

I will gladly provide hosting and occasional tech support, but would like to leave the administration to someone else as I have played far too little Geneforge to contribute any content.

Why did Starman Get Banned? in General

Unilateral:
Whenever Stareye removes the ban.

Qualifiers:
- A ban does not expire automatically. UBB does not do this.
- Starman has been told when Stareye intends to remove his ban, so everyone who needs to know does.

At a guess? 1-3 weeks.

And now, I believe the topic has exhausted even the temporary potential it held for linguistic debate.

Hence, behold the dawn!

Also, use some detective work. All of the titles contain non-alphanumeric non-space characters. Apparently I need to expand my regex.

Joyous day!

I contacted Support about the slow server. At first they tried to give me their 101 "you lose for using shared hosting but you can get OMGDEDICATEDSERVER for so cheap" pitch, but when I quoted them the server's load stats of between 25-50, apparently they saw sense and fixed whatever caused it. The upshot is that my Drupal sites are now lightning fast, loading in under 1 second in many cases. I'm very happy, and I'm glad I switched to DH. I doubt this would have worked so quickly with my last host.

No it's not, and in fact no longer the case. Thank for the alert.

I guess he has tapped hidden flows of Chi and managed to get a matter/antimatter generation going for some time.

After which the antimatter was disposed of using...

You're trolling, Salmon, or you should do better research. Esperanto has been and is being applied for practical purposes. It is certainly of value to the world.

If Esperanto is not real by virtue of being systematically invented, neither is C, Java or Perl - or in fact most scientific languages and mathematical symbols. That is a pretty shaky argument.

It would be nearly correct if it were Esperanto, but the imperative gets a u, not an a.

This way you're saying "Alive, the Drayks", etc.

Unfortunately, it turns out I have neither the time to participate nor to draw maps. The raw photoshop file I used to make these overlays could still be somewhere in my old stuff, but I'll only hunt for it if someone wants to use it.

Can there be some sane compromise between having an open and transparent administrative system and not starting a thread every time some noob gets a strong hint to stop acting like an idiot?

When somebody like Alec or TM or TGM gets banned, that's controversy. There is room for debate and argument. They're abrasive, border-line profane, while a good part of their contributions has actual value. I'll go out on an NPOV line here and say even Tully or Infernal have been banned controversially.

The same cannot be said for most of the members who have been banned recently. If you want to find out why they're banned, use this URL to find their recent posts. Usually the reason for the ban is among the last 10 posts:

This topic has sadly grown unstable due to its length. Parts of it appeared corrupted at several times today, and I do not doubt that it will be irreversibly broken before it can reach the twentieth page. In keeping to my crash prevention policy for the first time, I will close this topic and restart it.

Rest in Peace. *touches topic with staff*
