    zeusthemoose reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Day Thirty-One - Den-Fi, So Close My 'Friend', So Close   
    In first place we have Den-Fi, who got so close to two billion points, but with 1,998.91 million points he certainly has no reason to be labelled as anything other than a crazy cat GPU lady, Macaw2000 takes second place with 1,374.61 million points, and rodarkone in sitting in third with  897.94 million points. Unilevers, the maker of tasty snacks finds themselves in fourth place with 833.06 million points, miker07 has 756.09 million points taking fifth place. Gorgon takes sixth place with 739.62 million points followed distantly by Shlouski in seventh place with 577.86 million points and then we have _Rlocke with 566.12 million points. Ninth place we have LAR_Systems, the master of the great folding database with 467.49 million points and finally the gatekeeper is Justaphf, someday I wish to learn what a 'phf' actually is, with 545.37 million points.

    zeusthemoose reacted to GOTSpectrum for a blog entry, Day Seven - The Close Of The First Week   
    First off, can I just say how disappointed I am in you all, there has been an issue with the event percentage for the whole first week and no one even noticed, was a stupid error on my part that has now been corrected, but still, seriously guys! It was an unfortunate case of the named range being used for the totals being referencing the wrong call. If I can find the time I will retroactively correct the previous days. Now, onto something a little more personal, I may not be around for most of tomorrow(well, today) as I will be starting a new mental health support group under the charity I run on Tuesday. I still have way more things that I need to get done than I'd like to admit. I'm sure you can all make do without me. I'll attempt to get the blog post done, and if all goes right it shall be done. But I'm not 100% sure on how long it's going to take so I'm just making you all aware in case I am MIA. 
     
    Once again rodarkone has stayed firmly planted on that throne with 234.17 million points, it has to be said, even I'm starting to think that Den-Fi in second with 232.55 million points is telling the truth and can't catch the the current crown holder, but still, there is that small part of me that looks at them trading back and fourth who produces the most and considers how little it would take. Unilevers continues to take the number three spot with 172.38 million points, miker07 with 152.72 million has moved to leapfrog Gorgon who has fallen to 5th place with 147.99m points. Shlouski with 111.8m points is enjoying life in 6th place right now but there are certainly some threats they will need to be keeping an eye on in the coming week is they are looking to keep their place on the board. _Rlocke has has a slow day and bags 103.4m points. 8th place is Justaphf with 95.3m points, but DirectingGnu2 has outproduced phf, whatever a phf even is, and with 92.5m points they will be looking at pushing further up the ranks unless the phf can keep up with the pressure. The gatekeeper continues to be Baha with 88.6m points.
     
    Macaw2000 is certainly making a push and it will be seen if he can keep up the heat and force his way up the ranks. Another one to keep an eye on is D0ks who has performed above his current ranking would suggest and may have his eye on a more prestigious ranking. Also further down the table Scotschy has done well today and although they are unlikely to break into the blue ranks, they most certainly could be looking at the grey ranks if they can maintain.

    zeusthemoose reacted to colonel_mortis for a blog entry, LTT Forum Tech Stack   
    The LTT forum is built on Invision Community (previously known as IPS and IPB), an off-the-shelf forum software. The majority of the code that powers the forum is theirs, and the technologies that we can use are largely constrained by what Invision Community supports.
     
    The backend is written entirely in PHP, using a custom framework built specially for Invision Community. Some type annotations have been introduced into the codebase recently, but most of the code was written before PHP supported types and is therefore untyped (this applies to both IC's code and our custom additions). For a sense of scale, there are over 450,000 lines of PHP in Invision Community, and about 12,000 lines of LTT-specific PHP.
     
    Data is stored in MySQL, Elasticsearch and Redis. MySQL is the source of truth for all of the data in the system, and interaction with it from the backend code use Active Records. User content is duplicated into Elasticsearch to power the search functionality, as well as activity feeds and content feeds on user profiles (everywhere that combines content of multiple different types into one view). Redis is just used as a cache for frequently accessed or expensive values.
     
    Requests are handled using NGINX, and your requests also pass through Cloudflare before getting there to the server.
     
    All of the backend services are hosted on one server, with a 16 core EPYC processor. On the server, we're running CentOS 8.
     
    For the frontend, all of the HTML rendering is performed on the server side, using a custom HTML template syntax that works similarly to mustache (although with considerably less polish). Writing this code is virtually identical to writing raw HTML, except that you can use variables, use loops, and import other templates. Invision Community also has its own front end CSS framework, which generally works well to minimise the specific CSS required for each new feature.
     
    Continuing with the trend, there is also a custom Javascript framework for attaching controllers to elements and for declaring and using UI widgets. The framework is built for ES5 + jQuery; while it is possible to use ES6+ features in custom code, there is rarely enough that needs doing with custom code to be able to make use of much.
     
    We can easily edit the PHP, HTML and CSS provided by Invision Community, both using their hook system and by directly modifying code on our fork of the code, but the Javascript framework is generally not editable because it doesn't provide a generally useable hooking mechanism and the code is stored in the database rather than in files. This means that custom javascript is generally limited to only the small amount needed to support new functionality; accordingly, we only have about 400 lines of LTT-specific JS.
     
    I've also built a couple of GitHub actions in Typescript to automate some boring tasks, such as updating the repo with the latest version of Invision Community.

    Well guys, another year another Folding month!
     
    It is my pleasure to once again, for the third year, to welcome all to the official folding month of 2020! No matter your experience level, hardware reserves, or willingness to financially back your secret mercenaries, you are all welcome!
     
    So far it has to be said that we are a little thin on the ground, with only 152 sign ups, but with a month yet to go before the event commences there is still time for everyone to share the event and to have the numbers rolling in! 
     
    It has been an amazon year for folding at home, unfortunately, most of this growth comes on the back of the worldwide COVID19 pandemic that continues to ravage most of the planet to different degrees. In many parts of the world we are now seeing the start of a second wave that must surely be the initial signs of a coming hard winter for many communities and healthcare providers. We had an amazing response with folding events this year, with the COVID19 event being our largest by a significant margin and the summer sprint being a little more active than we have seen for other summers. This is one of the reasons many of you are folding right now, and for that I just want to thank you all, for there seems to be no single community that hasn't been touched by this silent, invisible adversary.
     
    I think it is safe to say that this year has been a drag on all of us to some degree or another, and I do question if the continued uncertainty has lead to some of these low numbers we are seeing.
     
    Can we all make sure to thank our team this year, we have @leadeater in his returning role of data-collection with his scripting wizardry, @marknd59 who has been massively helpful with validating entries, we also have @RollinLower, @j1philli and @ssmmdd hanging around to lend a hand when it's needed and @LandJ who is taking in how the process works to see if he can be of assistance in future events. 
     
    As usual just a little PSA, we are a small tight-knit community here, so if someone helps you out don't forget to thank them and give them a reaction, Also always remember we fold as a team first and for individual glory second. So be kind, be humble, be human; here at Folding Month 2020!
     
    With a month to go until the event we are slowly ramping up, building out the data sheet and working on entries as they roll in, we are still happy to receive any donations of prizes that you may have, so don't forget to have a look at your humble bundles and behind the sofas to see if you have any left over keys!
