[x86] Announcements / Site is updated + moved to new server
« on: June 29, 2018, 01:39:45 PM »
Hey all,

I just updated to the latest version of SMF, and moved the forum to my new server.

If you have any problems or bugs, please tell somebody who cares :D :D :D

Haha, there's enough pushback that FINE! I'll move it and update it and stuff! :P

I couldn't get MySQL to turn on this morning. I knew it was coming - it's been having harddrive problems for awhile.

So, I moved everything to Linode, and it seems to be good! Let me know if you run into any problems, something always goes wrong when I move the server.

FWIW, my last backup was a week old, so earlier today there were a couple posts missing. I just went back and copied the original files (not backups, but the files themselves) off my old server and loaded them here, and it seems to be working. :)

What's wrong is there's no upvote button, even for posts about drawing dicks on Joe's face!

But yeah, I communicate directly with a few x86'ers through FB, and we have a FB group with most of us (if you use FB, send me a link to your account so I can invite you, it's for friends too :) )

Haha yeah, it was more of a plan, but eh? I didn't check back, and I just renewed the domain for 3 years and fixed the SSL cert. So we won't have to worry about this again till 2018 :)

Hey everybody, is coming up for renewal in February, and the SSL cert is up for renewal like tomorrow (and it's gonna be a pain in the butt to renew the cert).

I'm wondering if I should bother? Here's my proposal (which makes my life easier):
- Move the forum to a subdomain of (since I have a wildcard SSL cert and will maintain that domain till I'm cold and dead)
- Make the forum read-only (so we can keep it as a monument, since nobody really posts anymore anyways)
- Declare a new 'official' space for us (whether it's the current Facebook group or we make a Google Group or whatever, I don't care)


[x86] Announcements / TEN FUCKING YEARS!

Holy fucking crap, ten years ago today me and James´╗┐ got the forum online, which I'm counting as our official start. Congrats for remaining such cool people! We definitely did something right. :)

6 of us have managed to gather in San Francisco, it seems. Join us for a virtual drink tonight at 7pm PDT / 8pm MDT / 9pm CDT / 10pm EDT! Here's a link:

(Hopefully that link works! It works for me, but I created it - if there are problems, I'll create a fresh Hangout and post it here)

Note: hanging out with us requires a G+ account ;)

Hey everybody,

I mentioned this on FB, but for those of you who aren't there or didn't see it...

October 11, 2014 - a Saturday - is our 10 year anniversary as a group. To celebrate, I want to have get together in San Francisco. Details to be determined, but who can make it out!? If people need a place to stay, let me know.

All members/friends are welcome :D

The server it's running on has been sketchy lately. I've had 3 or 4 periods of downtime in the last month, I can usually get it back up first thing in the morning (Pacific time), but weekends are harder.

Happy to see the forum has yet to vanish (kudos iago).
It's not going anywhere. I even recently bought a SSL key and made everything encrypted! :)

That's good to hear, but I can't help but feel it's too little, too late.  The damage from their previous enforcement of a real name policy has been already done.  I do remember reading that Vint Cerf had spoken out against the real name policy, so I'm inclined to believe what you say is true.

It's amusing to hear that internally there are complaints about the "Yes" and "Ask me later" YouTube thing.  I'm glad to see that Google employees feel free enough to openly voice their criticisms of absurd decisions like this.  However, the fact that they haven't gotten rid of this yet, makes me wary that Google still is pushing a real name policy to some degree.
Employees are *extremely* empowered to stand up and disagree. It's a really fantastic culture like that. There is a lot of reasoning behind the 'real names' stuff, which I can't really go into. Whether it was a good or bad decision is a matter of perspective, but the Internet at large certainly hated it, and they've responded, albeit slowly.

Anyways, the shit that annoys me the most (recently) about Google is the obnoxiousness of their real name policy.
For what it's worth, there isn't really a "real name policy" anymore. This is the message, word-for-word, from the guy that heads that team (and shared with pemission): "We do require that you have a name on your account, but this isn't required to be your name. You can also use initials for your first or last name if you want. It's better if you pick a name that your friends know you by, so that they can find you, but that's entirely up to you."
