  1. Kirito added a post in a topic: Beta 6 testing results.   

    I personally don't care for websites like WebPageTest since they're all very finicky on the way they actually perform these tests. For example, the index page on my production forum actually loads in ~0.88 seconds according to WebPageTest, but because of some beacon and analytic scripts that run as delayed Ajax requests in the background, it doesn't recognize the page as being fully loaded until those all fire off and return a response, even though they don't impact actual page load times at all.
    Have you ever used New Relic Rhett? If you haven't, I think you'll really like the insights it can provide you with. It actually measures the application performance for one thing. Browser performance can vary on so many factors that are almost completely irrelevant to the server software itself.
    These are the performance metrics over the last 24 hours for one of my production IP.Board 3.4.7 forums to provide an example,

    It would definitely be nice to see some comparison metrics like this instead.

    Some of the Nokia Lumia Windows phones really do look nice. I wouldn't ever actually replace my Android with it, but I've almost been tempted once. 
    I have a friend who is a Windows fanatic and she loves her Nokia Lumia. (I can't remember what specific model she has.)
    I've been really happy with my S5 overall though. Hardware wise it's an absolutely wonderful and very powerful device.
  3. Kirito added a post in a topic: TV Shows   

    I don't watch a lot of actual television. I completed Sherlock recently though and I loved it. It's one of the few recent shows I've completed that are really worth mentioning.
    Speaking of past favorites, House will probably forever rank near the top of my all-time favorite TV drama's. I've probably watched every episode of the show at least 3 or 4 times. Top Gear is another easy favorite. Shark Tank is also a personal favorite TV series of mine (essentially the American version of Dragons Den for those outside of the U.S.).
    I'm currently on season 4 of White Collar and so far I've enjoyed it. It has its dull moments like just about any TV series, but I do really like the show overall. The cast is great, Neal Caffrey and Mozzie are particularly memorable characters.

    Galaxy S5.
    Kind of hard to take a picture of your phone when your phone is your camera, but here's a screenshot of my home screen,

    I've been meaning to install a custom flavor of Android on it and have fun hacking about with the device like I did with my S3, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. So everything is still pretty much stock and boring.
    If I ever replace this phone in the future, I'm thinking I might get a Galaxy Note.
  6. Kirito added a post in a topic: Full SSL   

    ​How does that work for users who only have SSL enabled on login pages then? What would break if your URL didn't match exactly, out of curiosity?
    (And you say currently, is this something that's going to be changed/fixed at a later date? Since I don't think there's a reason the schema should need to match on your license, and there are people who may want to offer both as options for their users.)
    ​These are issues with the stock media tag configuration that can be easily fixed. See my post here regarding YouTube embeds,

    It doesn't matter if your license is for http or https, it will work the same either way.

  9. Kirito added a post in a topic: Is IPB4 stable enough yet?   

    Well, setting up a  new  forum isn't likely to cause any huge issues. But it's still beta and unsupported. Upgrading a production forum to a beta release can definitely be dangerous, you run the risk of permanently corrupting data at the least. Running beta software can also be seen as an increased security vulnerability.
    I probably wouldn't set up a new forum with IP.Board 3.4 at this point if you're intending on upgrading when IP.Board 4 is released, but if you can I would try and hold off a bit longer for at least the RC releases before setting up your new forum. This is still beta, there are still bugs and things can break between releases.

    You people are going to give Lindy an aneurysm with all this needless drama and bickering.
  11. Kirito added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    I don't think repeatedly mocking what The Admin Zone community says or does will somehow further this discussion in any productive manner. It's just becoming annoying at this point. This is IPS, not TAZ.
    Some of the replies to the topic you are repeatedly referencing on TAZ are completely reasonable, others not so. Kind of like the replies in this thread here.
  12. Kirito added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    I think that's a perfectly fair compromise, and I respect and appreciate your stance on the matter regarding power users here.
    Thank you again for your prompt response and clarification.
  13. Kirito added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    I honestly misread the second part of your post because I was more focused on the first sentence in your response, which is why I edited my post after. Sorry for that.
    If you would remove the message from the front-end entirely (even if it's only after the message is dimissed the first time) then only had the message reappear in the AdminCP every two weeks, I think I would be fine with that personally and I believe that would make it feel much less like nagware.
    You would have to acknowledge that this is almost purely a marketing decision as well though, as saying it's a feature because people don't realize when their license has expired doesn't make sense. They would know their license has expired after they dismiss the message the first time.
    This is kind of off-topic, but you certainly have the right to have an opinion on the decisions a company makes, regardless of if you use their services or not.
  14. Kirito added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    ​You have the right to do pretty much whatever you want. You can turn IP.Board into Nagware if that's what you wish. I hope that's not what you really want though.
    It would be nice if you would just openly recognize this as a flaw and say that it will be fixed, not respond by saying you have the right to do whatever you want.
    But I appreciate your response regardless. Thank you for confirming something will be done.
  15. Kirito added a post in a topic: Kinda questionable IPB   

    ​So, can't you only display this message if those services are enabled? The same way it currently works in IPB3? I don't need/use the anti-spam service and probably won't have use for any other hosted features you offer in the future, as I self-host almost everything on my board. Why should I be harassed with a nagware message when my license expires and I don't renew it?
    I really don't mean to come off as hostile, but I don't know how else to describe this, other than a nagware message. If this is really meant to mitigate support issues like you are saying, there are surely better ways to deal with this. Do you agree?

    Oh awesome, I can see my unapproved/mod qued posts now. I hope that's an intentional feature.

    Out of curiosity, could you tell me who it is IPS recently hired?

  3. Kirito » sijad

    this again is just meant as a friendly correction since I've seen you do it a lot in the jobs board.*

  4. Kirito » sijad

    As a friendly correction (since I don't think English is your primary language), when you want to tell someone you'd like to take up a project for them, you generally say you're "interested in it", not "interesting in it". Interesting just describes a specific something. "This is interesting" vs "I'm interested in this", as an example. I hope that makes sense, and I don't mean to insult you or anything, this again is just meant as a friendly...

      My bad, I'll do it :)
