  2. Why do you use Arch Linux

    1. alpenwasser

      alpenwasser

      Yeah, it gets me extra 1337 points, of course!

       

      On the more practical side of things: Originally I used Ubuntu until 2011, but Unity was pretty buggy when it came out, which made me look for a new distro. I tried Arch, liked it, and have stuck with it because I haven't really had any reason to switch. It does what I need it to do, and it mostly does it pretty well.

  3. Switching between branches in our semester project's Git repo (26550 objects at the moment) takes between 90 seconds and four minutes when it's based on an HDD.

     

    On my laptop's SSD, the same thing happens in about 10 seconds.

     

    Note to self: Get more SSDs.

      Aye. Must upgrade entire server to SSDs.

       

      On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know of any lightly-guarded banks?

      I do quite like that the posts themselves are now actually stored in the database as HTML, because if you do have HTML edit permissions, you can do some pretty awesome things (the new storage ranking thread relies on that actually). But I really don't see a very valid reason to simply fall back exclusively to rich text editing without proving any alternative for regular users whatsoever.

      Broken HTML tags would probably be the lesser concern. Bigger issue would be stuff like Javascript injection and such.

       

      And yeah, as you say, I don't need BBCode per se, but they could at least have acknowledged that Rich text editing just isn't suited for everyone and everything and added a suitable replacement, be that Markdown, limited HTML editing (strip out all Javascript, stuff like that) or something I haven't thought of.

       

      Personally, I'd quite like LaTeX as an alternative. :D

      It's just a button in the editor which switches between HTML view and regular view. But we can't really enable it for regular users. Assuming the designers of IPS were sane and used prepared statements, you probably couldn't drop databases or tables etc., but you could still do all kinds of very bad things because it's not passed through a sanitizer. The feature isn't even enabled for all mods at the moment I think.

       

      We did look into replacing the editor actually, but unfortunately it's so deeply embedded into the system that it didn't end up being feasible. Personally, I don't mind BBCode being gone, but I'd really like to have a raw editing option instead of a rich text editor (I mean, yeah, I got lucky and I do have that, but as a regular user I mean). Could have gone with something like markdown or similar, that'd be quite awesome IMHO. Or just support a limited set of HTML tags like disqus does. But alas, when mortis and I voiced our opposition to exclusive rich text editing on the IPS dev forums, we received an extremely frosty welcome, to say the least.

      Yeah, I'm honestly not sure what can and cannot be done. Spoilers are probably going to say broken, but I'm going to ask mortis about the post link thingy. Post numbers shouldn't have changed between the upgrade.

       

      In the meantime, if you can give me a link to the broken spoiler post, I can see if I can work some regex magic on them. I can edit the HTML directly, makes things a bit easier than with the rich text editor.

      I actually think we're done with the parsing now. Some things just broke though, spoilers and post links (with "post" tags instead of the complete URL) are probably going to stay broken unless you manually fix them.

       

      Same for my build lots, I used lots of those [ post = <number> ] BBCode tags. Probably going to have to fix them manually.

      From what I can tell, wives aren't that dangerous, it's when you perform the upgrade from spouse to ex that things break. Seems to introduce some malware into your finances or something like that.

      Yup, there are few things which are as scarily adept at sucking your bank account dry as storage builds. :D

      @Goodman: You do realise this is a privately owned forum, not a US government institution, right? Last I heard, the first amendment didn't apply to us.

      @byaleandr: While I haven't been monitoring all communications between the mod team and members, from what I have seen (and done myself), we've been telling people exactly that. You have an issue, contact Slick, that's the official and proper place for complaints about forum management. Complaining to him about us is...

      @Vitalius: Yeah, going through this stuff and cleaning it out takes ages, let alone actually sorting it.

      @Rw: Honestly, I don't actually know, as I haven't sorted through most of it. :D

      I have a bit of a weakness for space pics and beautiful scenery/places actually (I once wrote a pic crawler for a few space sites like Hubble, ESA and eso.org to grab all pictures in their highest-quality version). Not that those make up my entire collection, but they're the ones least li...

      @V: IKR! Very nice indeed.

      And yeah, 53,738 files. The power of semi-automated image collecting. I recently actually deleted about 2 million unsorted images because I finally admitted to myself that I was never going to actually look through them. I still have a few hundred thousand left which are semi-sorted though, so now I have to go through those and cull the undesirables. :D
