Is Fark joining the day of IPv6? Should I head up to the mountains that day because the rest of the world as we know it will end?

Yeah I'm working on it after I finish some new toys for the Photoshopper crowd

Hey Mike,

This might be old news now as I've been too busy to notice lately, but thanks for making some progress on the TLS front. It's nice to not be sending my credentials out every time I want to post.
 
  2011-02-08 02:08:56 AM
well, not in plaintext anyway, yeah.

Hiya Geeks!

I am looking to build or buy a desktop for around $600. to run wow cata on ultra graphics. I was thinking about getting a barebones kit but its been 5 years since I built a computer and it's all pretty confusing.

All the off-the-shelf PCs seem to have integrated graphics cards these days. Should I still be avoiding those?

// Not if you want a 600$ box.
Integrated have come a long way, and are generally faster.
OTOH, if you think you might wear it out, get a separate one later [non pci]

Wow, talk about a weird motherboard failure... the machine suddenly will not POST with its normal 4 x 2 GB sticks of memory (like it's been running with for years), but put one or two 1 GB sticks in and it's fine. WTF?

This machine's been having NMI errors for a week, so clearly something is wrong with either the memory or the motherboard itself...
 
  2011-02-17 01:58:15 AM
it's mad at you.
 
  2011-02-17 12:15:07 PM
hah. $1337 to replace the whole system. Nice number.

Say, Mike, about that Fark email notification thingee that got turned on by default so people would notice it (apparently even for people who had it disabled previously when it got tested on TF..):

Could it be that the profile options for managing those subscriptions are still set to TF only?
Because I just got one of those notifications and, reading through my profile preferences, I can't find anything related to it.

Closest thing are watched/favorited link lists under "User Tools" and the option to automatically add threads you commented in to those lists under "Link & headline preferences", but in my case those lists are empty and the checkboxes unchecked.
 
  2011-02-17 03:32:36 PM
Go to the page where you'd go to edit your bio, email address, etc.
 
  2011-02-17 04:10:15 PM
Ah, ok.
I got so used to that wall of checkboxes in the other sections that I read over the part that said to click "edit" to get at the subscription settings.
Not to mention that the section's header with the "Edit"-button is in "my public profile" and while the email address might be part of a public profile, all that subscription and newsflash stuff is, semantics-wise, rather more "preferences" than "public profile".


As a geek I'm all for being able to configure lots of stuff, but I think the Fark profile has grown to a point that it could use a dose of "you'll-get-over-it" redesign.
To be a bit more constructive instead of just whining:
Maybe structure it like BurningBoard does it, with the three main sections (tabs) "public profile", "preferences" and "no clue what it's called in English" ("management", maybe? It's where you manage stuff like favorited/ignored users lists)" and then some subsections like "notification settings", "personal information". "account information" etc.

Or, for the moment, add an "Edit Email subscriptions"-button somewhere next to the email address under "my public profile", where you put all that "notify me in case of X"-stuff instead of mixing those settings directly with the profile picture and whatnot. ;)
 
  2011-02-17 04:36:06 PM
There's already plans to split it into tabs.

anyone mess with the HHD/SSD hybrid drives?

Newegg (pops)has a 500gb drive on sale... been wondering about those as a "in the mean time" until the SSD prices come down some more.

I have two of those drives -- there is a firmware update that fixes some issues with them, and once you apply that, they work pretty well.

Do Macs have a way to lock the screen _now_ requiring password to unlock? All I can find is the slider bar where you say how much idle time should cause a lock. Even sleep mode doesn't require a password if awakened before the timeout.

Could be as simple as the higher-density memory needing more voltage and one of the capacitors supplying said voltage getting old.

If it's got a PCIe graphics slot, you can make it run WoW at ultra settings. If you want something off-the-shelf, get a desktop that looks like a normal mid-tower and add one of these to it.

Now, that's a cheap solution that probably won't be too much for the power supply on a cheap PC. You could probably get by with an even cheaper card, but I don't know what resolution your monitor is.

Yeah, that's my best guess so far -- I haven't found any bulging caps just yet...

vegasj: greatly noticeable speed increase? or 'meh' tis ok?


Well, they're definitely not slower. :) A few specific things are a lot faster, most things feel about the same... It is 7200rpm, so if you're replacing a 5400rpm laptop drive it's an obvious win.

in my infinite laziness, I have installed an RSS feed reader to pull feeds from all my favorite sites.
now I no longer have to actually click to find updates on all the trivialities that compose my modern life. liferea will do it for me, and display them in chronological order.

does anyone have any suggested RSS feeds they find essential? already have a few from BBC and al-jazeera.

// Meh, tis not ok, its a seagate. Maybe they have improved, but needing a Patch after purchase seems a bad mark from the start.
I don't yet trust drives with the new miniature tracks & hi capacity. fill one of those and have it evaporate? ... better to spend for top of line wdc and, keep testing.
hardware fail is remembered even longer than marriage fail.
browser fail is remembered forever...
 
  2011-02-25 11:28:41 AM
...and I've had way more WDCs fail than Seagates, and more (pre-Seagate) Maxtors than WDC's. But I've had a lot of every brand and they all die at some point -- everyone puts out a line of lemons every now and then (pre-Hitachi Deskstar, Seagate 7200.11, etc). Everyone's got their own religion there. :)
 
  2011-02-26 12:12:33 AM
almost every Maxtor I've had has failed at one point or another. I have some Seagates still chugg'n

Lost a WD drive last year. They replaced it quickly enough, though. Other than that, I've been lucky with hard drives.
 
  2011-02-28 04:28:03 AM
they were looking for you so I sent them here...
 
  2011-03-01 12:54:34 PM
looks like they got lost.

Oh good lord. Someone was doing a "count the IP addresses in this photo" thing on Facebook, and for laughs I tried to count how many IPs I'm using on my home network...

I came up with 28.

A bit excessive :p

Yeah, I only have one public one but still, this is kinda why IPv6 matters :)

I kind of like the tabbed profiles, but how about a preference setting for which tab your profile defaults to when you click the myFark link? I know that 99% of the time I go to my profile, it's to see the recent threads I've posted in. The way it is now adds a step.

Same for me.
Considering the amount of "bookmark" posts in certain threads, I suppose it's the same for most people.

I mean, I know what's in my public profile and if I'm not there to change something (which will need a click on the edit tab no matter whether "public" or "recent" is the default), the only reason for me to visit my own profile is the recent threads list.

Anyone got a favorite FOSS backup software? I'm trying AceBackup which is perfect for the file by file backup with keeping all the versions, and also trying macrium reflect which looks great for disk images, but neither does both, which I want. Any suggestions? I used to use Windows' backup which was exactly what I wanted before it decided to not work. It was slow as hell anyway.

Got a terrabyte drive, one of the most exciting things about it was going to be seeing that >1000GB or even 1TB of free space when I start it. But of course I don't think about them using BS non-binary exponent gigabytes. 931GB? F*CK YOUR 931 GB. So ugly.

Will send details, but it's been doing this to me for weeks, so it wasn't caused by a recent change.
