Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
Hi everyone. While it is OK to hold and express strong opinions, and to argue them forcefully, please do not make your arguments in a way which insults others. “I find this completely outrageous and wrong, and I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t agree” is OK. “I find this completely outrageous …

Re: Has USA ever looked worse internationally ?

This topic is now closed. I apologise to all of you who were trying to have a meaningful conversation on an incredibly important topic, but there have been several people—who are otherwise helpful and constructive members of the community, and are deeply appreciated for their positive contributions— …

Folks, This thread is turning into version 2 of the Coronavirus thread. Do not post unfounded conspiracy theories as to the origin of the riots. This is against the board rules. If this continues, this thread will also be locked or removed. Thank you.

Ok, I put it on my Google drive. https://drive.google.com/open?id=197dJGV2W7fZ353-T8IYIIt5QRIYC9lHq Thanks, you can remove that file now if you’d like. There’s a barely perceptible difference in the noise pattern between the two which is only noticeable by A/B testing (but not so noticeable that I …

Without them, it is impossible to tell at a glance what kind of thread this is. Is it a brand new thread you might want to jump in on? Is it a very active, large thread? Is it a build thread with lots of pages? Etc. Not so. The “replies” column gives you this information. [hr] Ok. It was taken with …

Is this on purpose. If so, why? I really like having high quality pics and not sure what the reasoning behind reducing image quality / size if it is under 2MB. It is intended. The primary resource constraint for the site is disk space utilisation, and there’s no reason to store a 1.2MiB file when …

Before posting, I did load 1 image attachment and added 1 inline tag (this is the image showing in my post above with the DOS CPUID tool) and took screenshots, then deleted the tag and attachment in the editor before loading 2 new images. I added 2 inline image tags and 2 attachments were present. …

Funny thing I noticed with the changed mousecursor on OS X. When I'm slowly creeping towards the left edge and wait a fraction once the cursor changes to the window-size-changer and then move on, the cursor stays the way Vogons changed it to... I’m pretty sure this is a macOS bug in WindowServer. …

The preview seems to be working again when using the post editor. Was anything changed since my last post? Yes, though not anything that should have affected this. Please keep an eye on it and let me know if it starts happening again and we can continue investigating together. EDIT: As I was …

Re: Style problems/bugs

I haven't uploaded and posted an image for a while on this site. However, I had to use Imgur to host and link today as the usual site uploading and placing inline wouldn't preview images anymore? Anyone know why that is? When you say it would not preview images when placing inline, what do you mean …

Ok I have to ask this: what's the forum color supposed to look like? Excuse the photo quality but I had to take actual photos from my mobile to demonstrate the below Hey, it changes depending upon what you plug into it, just like a C64! Free retro feature :-P The site is not supposed to be any pure …

Re: Style problems/bugs

Yeah, that's a stretch goal if I ever heard one - there's years upon years of wrong character encoding in the post database resulting in mojibake, people writing with country-specific fonts when these days they'd use Unicode, and there's probably no good way to fix it - I know I've brought it up …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

Just noticed that listening to attached MP3s no longer works on my iPad. It used to work fine on the old forum. I’m not sure what would have changed to cause that. Can you give me a link to a specific post and I can look into it? Also can you please tell me which version of iOS you are running? I'm …

Ok, so to disable the custom cursor, you can enter this in Stylus: body * { cursor: auto !important; } This will let your cursor stay however you have it set in your OS. And if you want a pointer hand instead of the text selection cursor for links, add this: (This is only for "a" links. Not working …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

EDIT: And the fact everything is CC. I now know this already was a thing before the redesign, and at least it's clear now, but I'd very much like to be able to disable that for at least photos. Otherwise I'm going to pull all my photos from the site, and do external image linking as to preserve my …

If I upload an attachment > 2MB in size, I get an error message but the posting process crashes: greyed out Preview, Submit, etc. and can't un-attach or delete the offending file. I have been having recurring problems with file attachments when composing private messages. There seem to be two …

Snover if you addressed the font issue previously I did not see it. The current font is really not a very easy to read font especially for numbers. Could you change the font to something that is more horizontally consistent at keast for the Old Skool theme? There’s no plan to replace the current …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

While the forum's getting changes, all I can suggest right now is collapsable quotes. Some are chronic big quoters that leave tiny posts (not naming names) This is done now. The implementation is not great due to limitations in the renderer but I hope it is serviceable. Let me know if there is …
