Re: Moderator update

Since I can't support projects as much as I'd like with my time and effort, I wanted to poll the group about donating to a beloved program. Ideally would prefer to give to an open source project. Any suggestions? I'd suggest finding out which are the top X app you use on a daily basis, and donating...

Re: TPFC migration

No prob. Thought to @ you but couldn't figure out how to @ handles which contain spaces :P (At least I think the new software supports @'ing, maybe that's only another one I frequent). I did a quick google about this. Don't think it's support it even the latest version of phpBB. It is supported, ho...

Re: Is this site compatible with FF 59.1?

I use FF Portable as my daily driver, and have just upgraded to 59.0.1 as well. So far so good.

It could be a video driver issue, but could also be due to FF's interaction with the driver.

Do you get the same problem with eg. Chrome?

Re: Why does this site constantly log me out?

If you are trying to troubleshoot login problems, check for the following cookies: - tpfc_phpbb3_u - tpfc_phpbb3_k - tpfc_phpbb3_sid and their expiry dates (which should be a couple of years into the future) If these cookies are missing from your browser, something is clearing them (an addon maybe?)...

Re: Why does this site constantly log me out?

AFAIK your IP address shouldn't matter, since the session is wholly persisted by a cookie stored in your browser. Anyway, I did some research and have updated the cookie domain settings (by default, it can be left blank, but some folks have suggested setting it manually). Please lemme know if that h...

Re: Categories

So here's what I have done.

By default now, only public categories are shown.

There's a checkbox that allows one to display the private categories if desired.

Re: TPFC migration

Fixed. Thanks for spotting this! The reason is because some fields for this entry (especially "What's New" is really huge eg. > 1KB). This chokes up the text diff engine and takes a long time to complete, so the script times out. What I have done is to truncate fields greater than 1KB before feeding...

Re: Categories

The categories in the editor are consolidated from both public and private entries, as opposed to the filtered list in the All categories page. I am not sure how this can be reconciled. Purging them will be a lot of work (because you will also need to fix up all the database entries that refer to th...

Added to database: A Sharper Scaling This is one of those tiny app that performs one function very well. In this case, it upsizes a digital image better than conventional metho...

Server temporary outage just now

There was a temporary server outage about 1 1/2 hours ago because the VPS provider brought the server down for security update, which took close to an hour. Then when the server came up and the VPS booted, some critical services did not start up properly. Took me about 1/2 hour to notice and took co...
