  1. Server migration complete. For anyone curious, Ninfora's now running on a personal server of mine with 16 cores, 32 threads, 64 GB RAM, and multiple SSDs in a RAID configuration with a dedicated controller. It's been a long time in the making, and I'm glad to have this done! Your upload limit is now 4 GB, up from 512 MB.
  2. Exciting news: Sometime in the not-too-distant future I'm going to be moving Ninfora to my server in New Zealand! This server is a very significant hardware upgrade for the site with 8x as many CPU threads, 8x as much RAM, and more than 16x as much disk. Once this migration is complete, I will increase the upload cap from 512 MB to 4 GB, and it will be easier to increase this even further down the road if ever necessary. With the site upgrade, performance will ideally be roughly similar. Since the server will be NZ-based, the latency to the origin server will be higher for most of you, although this should be somewhat offset by the far beefier hardware. I will share more information about this with a site-wide announcement when I've scheduled the migration.
  3. Good find. If it's something server-side in that case, it might get improved with the next software update. Not sure when that will be.
  4. @alienboyva the tweets are all using the new-style embed on my end. Try clearing your browser cache if it stops working properly at any point. Otherwise do let me know if you run into any further issues, but do note that it's likely outside of my control with the embed updates.
  5. Paper Mario N64 and TTYD were two of my favourite games of all time. I really hope that this is more of a return to form, but it seems like it will still be lacking some RPG elements and there may not be partners. Nonetheless, I'm feeling a bit more optimistic for this than I was for Sticker Star or Colour Splash. I never did get around to playing those two games, and I don't really feel I've missed out.
  6. @Pichi I've tried out a few other browsers on dekstop and mobile, and everything seems to be rendering tweets and images as expected. Are you running any specific add-ons that I should test with, or anything of that nature? Does anyone else run into problems with images and tweets not displaying correctly? I'd like to resolve that if I can get to the bottom of it, but I'm not able to replicate anything on my end as of yet.
  7. Is anyone else experiencing this? I've tested a few browsers - including Firefox, of course - and everything seems to be working fine on both desktop and mobile.
  8. It's been a few weeks since there's been any forum upgrades on my end. It could be the Twitter embed itself that's changed as well, possibly. Either way, glad it looks better for you!
  9. Second day in a row with no new cases here in New Zealand. We're starting to feel rather optimistic about opening up domestically sooner rather than later, but it's still too early to truly celebrate.
  10. There's no bulk option for it yet. Are you nearing your space limit? If that's the issue, let me know and I'll see what can be done to increase it in the medium-term.
  11. Strange, do let me know if it happens again. I didn't see anything on my end, but I do want to make sure that the site's performing smoothly at all times.
  12. Performance is looking the same here. It's still snappy and fast, even with the extra latency from New Zealand. Is anyone else noticing slower speed? Nothing should have changed for the worse.
  13. I was looking at this data earlier today and it was rather frightening. Michigan is one of the states with the highest number of Covid-19 cases per capita. It rose incredibly quickly and is still significantly above other US states. Sadly it's still hard to say exactly how prevalent it is given the general lack of testing.
  14. The thing that's really strange is that I qualify for one of those checks too simply because I'm a US citizen, even though I've lived in New Zealand for over six years. I guess me still having to file US taxes every year has paid off in a sense. Planning to send the money to my parents.
  15. Finance minister expanded upon all of the measures that are in place to soften the economic blow of this. Incredible all around, really. I'm very proud of this government.
  16. This is going to be for four weeks minimum. Among the most extreme measures in the world, especially this early on.
  17. New Zealand now at alert level 3, and going into alert level 4 in 48 hours. We are in lockdown now, and going into full lockdown in two days. This is on top of the border being closed.
  18. 36 new cases in New Zealand, with 102 total. Over half of cases today were from travel; almost all were from travel or close contact; two were unknown and are being treated as community transmission. Our prime minister is going to address the nation again soon with regards to our alert level, which will likely be raised with this information. We will likely be going into lockdown.
  19. New Zealand had 14 new cases, now 53 total. Community transmission cannot be ruled out; a couple of cases were not linked directly to travel. The government has given the official recommendation that places need to "work differently" now (e.g. work from home where possible). I have been working from home for the past 2+ weeks already so this does not directly impact my day-to-day, although I may be helping other coworkers set up their work-from-home capabilities now. They essentially laid out an alert system with four levels. We're at alert level 2 right now, with level 3 being lockdown, and level 4 being extensive lockdown. This coming week will confirm whether there has been any further spread within the community.
  20. 11 more cases in NZ today, again all from international travel. Total of 39. Still no confirmed community transmission. Fingers crossed...
  21. Literally ten seconds after I posted this I got a notification that someone in my office building (from a different company) tested positive. Whelp...
  22. New Zealand's borders are now completely closed to everyone except citizens and permanent residents. We still haven't had any confirmed community transmission. If we can keep it under control for another week or two, there's actually a distinct possibility that we may be in the clear until vaccines can eventually be distributed.
  23. Another eight new cases in NZ today. 28 total now. Still all from overseas. No community transmission confirmed yet.
  24. Eight new cases in New Zealand. That's a 66% increase. Twenty total now. Meanwhile, my company just announced a pay freeze today, as I was immediately due for a significant pay review next week. Horrible timing and I'm frustrated, but I'm still in a position to weather all of this.
