2018 World Cup

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_FIFA_World_Cup Any other World Cup fans here? I'm not a big fan of soccer/football, but I do watch the World Cup since it's only once every 4 years. Since almost every country competes, they start the qualifying matches to see who's in very shortly after the previo...

Re: Server migration Sept 22

Links now open in a new window again. For posting videos, you can just put the link in your post. Or you can use the media tag above in the editing buttons above. But it's best to just put the link in case anything changes in the software in the future. You can also embed other links, including twit...

Re: Advice for scraping a website.

1. Copy and paste the plain text. Right click and save images. 2. A more permanent, better copy would be to get the html code. That can be done by right-clicking a page and then hit View Page Source, then copy and paste that code. And then you could use that code to restart the website, if you choose.

Re: Server migration Sept 22

The move has been very successful overall. There is just one small glitch: for some reason the video links are not working properly. There is no preview (just a black square) and one cannot play them. I noticed this after I included a video link in a post of mine. I believe this is fixed now, test:...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

So yes, gun control, by itself, is not enough. There has to be a radical shift in the American mindset too. Agree, this is the real issue. I believe gun control is triage for the symptoms of much deeper problems. The United States is socially dysfunctional and ill. Parts of it are working for some ...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Here in the Northeast, we generally have a more civilized attitude towards guns, and for example, this kind of incident could never happen in Massachusetts because assault weapons are banned in this state, and second, all guns that one owns must be registered, and third there are laws about how the...

Deadliest mass shooting in U.S. only 3 miles from my house. http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/02/us/las-vegas-shooting-what-we-know/index.html How are you? I'm fine, thanks.

Re: Server migration Sept 22

Another thing that might work: flushing the dns https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html Most operating systems and DNS clients will automatically cache IP addresses and other DNS results, this is done in order to speed up subsequent requests to the same hostname. Sometimes bad results will be cach...

Re: Server migration Sept 22

Ok, we'll check if there is something more we can do to help solve this. In the meantime, check on other computers in your home that have not accessed DW previously. And then if there is no problem getting in with the other computers, then you know that the problem is with your regular computer, cac...

It's a test of equanimity. :tongue: No matter what colors are used someone will complain; it's the nature of a large group. Perhaps some future software version will have that option where individual users can choose their own color schemes. When we moved to the new server, we updated the software t...

Colors are back to more traditional look. And it helps me tell the 3 forums apart with the different colors.

Re: Server migration Sept 22

Are you saying the company that moved the server did not make a backup right before they shut the server down? :shock: Correct, the companies rely on the customers to do that. That is one of the reasons e-sangha went down permanently way back in 2009 because they didn't do a back-up before it crash...

Re: Server migration Sept 22

The move was successful, we are on the new server now. However, we will be down a little later today for some more scheduled maintenance, but hopefully for just a short time.

Re: Server migration Sept 22

It took much longer than expected due to webhosting company delays. At least posts have been restored that were made between the back-up date and when the server went down for the move.
