    The Boneyard - N4A Chat Thread, October 2018

    Sometimes there are a handful of spam accounts that register but don't make it through the filter. The member count dips when those accounts eventually get pruned after failing verification for so long.
  2. Mine is holding up nicely. I've brought it with me on long flights between US and NZ, and I've sunk a fair few hours into Breath of the Wild, Odyssey, and Mario Kart 8. My Switch isn't getting too much attention right now, though. I'm waiting on some new games at this point. Looking forward to Animal Crossing and Pokémon in particular.
  3. I'd really like to see a Switch spec bump, even if it's only a couple of years after the original release. The Switch released with Maxwell GPUs after Pascal GPUs became available, and NVIDIA has since released Turing. Pascal in particular was a huge improvement that significantly improved power efficiency and performance, and Turing only iterated further on that. We could see a pretty healthy performance gain on a new Switch within the same power envelope. Potentially really exciting stuff, in my opinion!

    Ah, right! Done.

    Remember Outsider?

    I have some oddly fond memories of Outsider drama from back in the day. I'm surprised all the data's been kept after all this time! I almost want to take a look around, but I'm terrified of the dumb stuff I may have said then, haha! EDIT Just tried to log in. Got in on my first attempt. Yikes, my passwords a decade ago were just as terrifyingly awful as JSnake's. Also looks like I only made four posts on that account, and they're not showing up in search. Probably for the best.

    @Eliwood8 I looked into that issue, and unfortunately there isn't likely too much that I can do. Basically, when someone copies/pastes their text like that, it's being treated as formatted text by the browser. The way to bypass it is for people to use "Ctrl+Shift+V" when pasting from the clipboard since that pastes text without additional formatting. There may be some sort of workaround that could be applied, though. But unfortunately it isn't quite as straightforward as I'd have hoped. I'll let you know if I figure anything out if I get a chance to have more of a think on it.

    @Eliwood8 thanks, I'll try to look into it sometime in the next few days! Something like that should hopefully be a fairly straightforward fix.

    I've installed several larger updates for the site, which should improve security and performance a bit. Please let me know if you experience any issues!

    Yeah, fibre is really cool tech. We've got gigabit fibre installed to our residence and I'm impressed with both the consistently high speed and rock solid latency. Fibre is often very expandable as well. The physical cables they've rolled out can push 10 Gbps and beyond. The limiting factor is what's on the ends.

    Chelsea Manning will be speaking here in a couple of weekends after getting a special direction for a visa. I think I might go.

    Your experience with camping

    I haven't been camping in ~10 years, but I'd really love to go again sometime. I got a decent view of the night sky on a recent trip up to Mt Ruapehu and it was quite the experience! I need to set aside some time to truly appreciate nature like that again. I miss Camp Hyrule as well. I only got to be in one, but it was a blast!

    One of my flatmates said that he'll get a Switch once Dark Souls is on it. I'll have to see to it that he keeps his word...

    2008 vs. 2018

    2008: • I was a sophomore/junior in high school • Was heavily into technology • NSider2 was still a bustling, active site and I was one of the newer members of staff • I was mostly a loner aside from a small group of friends, but this was mostly by choice because I didn't share many interests with most classmates • My Wii got a fair bit of use still • Grandparents and other close family still alive and tight-knit 2018: • I've graduated college/university. Twice. • Been working professionally as a software developer for a few years • Obtained a New Zealand resident visa less than a year ago, allowing me to stay in the country indefinitely • Run Ninfora • Have a sizable group of friends - sometimes more than I can feasibly keep talking with frequently enough! • Run a Discord server for said friends • Technical Support MVP on Blizzard's forums • Sold the lion's share of my cryptocurrency near the all-time high after holding onto it since 2011/2012 • Just as much into technology as ever before • Play primarily on PC, but also have a Switch (hooray for no region locking!) • Grandparents and other family members passed away; other members of family moved across the United States I'd like to think that life has been going quite well for me over these past several years. I have incredibly fond memories of my time back in 2008, and I do often get lost in nostalgia - especially when I think back to my time with family - but I try to always keep moving forward and have goals in mind. I think that I've definitely come out of my shell IRL over the past decade, and I attribute a lot of that to the level of comfort that I gained from interacting with others online. When it comes to politics, I'll just say that I feel quite fortunate to not be in the United States anymore during all of this. There's been some real nastiness boiling over these past couple of years, but it's not really something that I encounter in my daily life here, thankfully. I'm more politically motivated than ever, though, and I'm looking forward to voting in NZ in these coming years.

    I usually play local multiplayer with my friends and flatmates, so it's not looking particularly enticing to me so far. I'm certainly going to be playing a lot of Smash Bros once it's out, though! I never picked up a Wii U or 3DS because I was moving countries and the region locking would have been a major headache, so I'm looking forward to playing my first new Smash game since Brawl.
