Yeah, so life has managed to delay our December Update until February. Things happen. The only change to what's in it is that I wrote up a simple plugin to syndicate content to Twitter, which is very much preferable to our current situation since we're pushing stories from a hacky little script on my desktop at the moment and I'd like to be able to boot Windows 7 for some vidya once in a while.

Downtime should be five minutes or less starting around 2:00AM UTC (an hour and forty minutes from now).

Meta: A Quick December Update 59 comments

Seems we've hit one of those rare days where circumstances have conspired to keep all the eds busy enough that the story queue ran dry, so I figured I'd go ahead and tell you lot about the upcoming December site update just so they have a little less time to fill now that a couple of them have appeared and started refilling the queue.

It's mostly just a minor bug-fix update, stuff I could get coded quickly and didn't require extensive testing that martyb doesn't have much time for right now, so don't get your hopes too high. Most of the good stuff is currently slated for spring of next year. Here's what we've currently got up on dev for testing with an expected release date of between Christmas and New Years Eve:

  • Add an admin-configurable minimum karma requirement for a journal entry to show up in the Most Recent Journal Entries slashbox. Should eliminate having to see journal spam by folks who don't otherwise contribute anything to the site.
  • Fixed the <spoiler> and a couple other unnoticed tags to work properly in journal entries.
  • Removed the size limit on Editor Notes (the admin page ones, not the ones Eds add to the bottom of a story). Should make takyon happy.
  • Put a link to the submission queue on the left sidebar.
  • Fixed the spacing around <ol> and <ul> lists.
  • Made chromas have to work harder to post comments with no apparent subject or text.
  • Fixed an annoying bug in the admin interface that was trying to use a comment mode no longer in existence.

Like I said, not a whole lot there on account of us not having time to thoroughly test much what with the holidays coming up. Here's the list (using tinyurl due to a Rehash bug that will definitely make the Spring 2018 cut) of what we'd like to get done for this spring if you're curious though.

Them of you of the disposition to celebrate Christmas, have a merry one. Them of you who celebrate otherwise, happy whatever you're celebrating. Them of you who don't celebrate at all, have a happy rest of December.

[Ed note: I nudged the time this story was due to be released by just a few minutes so that it coincided with the beginning of the Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere... and the Summer Solstice for those of you who are south of the equator. Maybe we can get the next release out at the start of the equinox (2018-03-20 @ 16:15:00 UTC). --martyb]

        They're not soviet any more, we don't call them soviet. They stopped being soviet when they lost -- they lost very badly -- the Cold War. When they got rid of Mikhail Gorbachev. Very smart move. I invited the guy to Trump Tower fro dinner, he says he'll come, right? Never calls, never shows up. And he thought he could run the biggest country. He couldn't run it, he ran it into the ground. If he'd listened to me, he could have done great things. With the Cold War, he could have ended it much sooner. Much better for Russia, maybe they would have won. But he flaked on me. And gave Russia a bad reputation. But they got rid of him, they got a much better guy. I think maybe it's time to give Russia a second chance. But some people are afraid, they want to block the ICQ because it has Russians. Because a Russian might find SoylentNews. Believe me, you could do worse than to have some Russian people joining up. A lot worse. It's a witch hunt, folks.

    we're pushing stories from a hacky little script on my desktop at the moment and I'd like to be able to boot Windows 7 for some vidya once in a while.

    Assuming that you have the script on linux...

    You realize that there are plenty of games that run on linux.

    After all, once I was doing all my dev work on linux did I really stop using windows. Even for games. Granted I used wine, but that is far from perfect... there were always a few windows games I would duel boot for... However, dual booting can be a pain in the ass... Saving everything, waiting for the reboot.

    What really stopped me from using windows for games was off hours support calls. If I was in a game, I would have to save the game (assuming I was at a point I could save), spend the time rebooting into linux, fix the problem, reboot into windows and restart my game. Most of the time, fixing the problem was by far the quickest part of the whole process.

    Back then... there were few linux games... but enough... The cross platform Humble Bundle was a godsend and one of the very few places for linux gaming. Since then, Steam, GOG, and others now support linux gaming. While some major publishers still ignore linux, plenty of others do support it. I have more games on linux than I have the time to play... I have no reason to use windows at all anymore, and I have not used it in 10 years.

      Upon further reflection this morning, I will not be fixing non-breaking bugs this AM. I will be booted into Win7 playing some much delayed vidya since I can now reboot again.

        The place where this could make a difference is when folks re-post a "link" that's actually a URL that gets auto-linkified.
        Those would now be several characters longer.
        (I'm the guy who gripes about extra-long/-wide "links".)

        As long as it's on the list, I expect it will get patched.
        No biggie.
        Hey, if that's the most serious thing anybody's spotted, that kind of goodness earned some playtime.

          The comments preferences page broke as well. Somehow the templates for that page lost its unicode-friendly status and Touché being spelled correctly made everything shit the bed. It's temporarily fixed though.

            I read my Messages, the Message came about moderation. So much terrible moderation, very unfair. And the Message says about the tweet I'm replying to, that it has been moderated Troll (-1). Which, I'm not surprised, I write something nice, I say a nice compliment to somebody, along come our moderators and say, "oh look, it's a tweet from realDonaldTrump, Troll (-1)!" But I look at the tweet, where's the moderation? There's no moderation. Maybe there's moderation now, I get so much of it. Too much. Why is it called moderation, when there's so much of it? But when I start to reply, there's nothing.

                Very simple, I look at my Messages, a Message says my tweet "has been moderated Troll (-1)". With the link to tweet #632842. I look, it's not moderated Troll. It's not moderated anything.

                  Ah, yeah, you got mod-bombed and every moderation in the bombing was reversed. We do that not by deleting the moderation or upmodding the comment but by setting a disable flag on that moderation. So, yes, you were moderated but no, it's not taking effect.

                  The same thing happened with my tweet #632865. I get the Message, it "has been moderated Troll (-1). It is currently scored Troll (0)." I go to look, it doesn't say Troll, it doesn't say anything.

                  Another thing. So many down moderations in that Message, it says I got 19 down and 11 up. Not all of them change the Karma -- there was one Overrated and one Underrated -- but you'd think maybe, probably, I lost some Karma there, right? Probably I lost 8 Karma, you'd think, right? I lost a little bit, but it all came back. It totally came back. Like maybe a very crooked administrator did me a favor and canceled some of those down moderations. A lot of people (Dems) will say, "oh, Russia, Russia, Russia." I don't know that it was Russia. It could be Russia. Or it could be someone sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds.

          See, dev environments work fine, prod environments break. The difference? Users! Bloody prod users with their prod data and prod meta data. Life would be far easier without the users!
