  1. What Are You Listening To?

    Sung by AmaLee, Arrangement Jonathan Parecki, Mixed by Shawn Christmas, Song 'Hey Kids!!', originally by Japanese band 'The Oral Cigarettes', from anime; 'Noragami Aragoto' season 2 (2015) ____________________________________________________ Sung by AmaLee, Arrangement Jonathan Parecki, Mixed by Shawn Christmas, Song 'Again', originally Produced & Arranged by Hisashi Kondo & Sung by 'Yui', from anime; 'Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood' (2009) The vocals may sound rushed, due to fitting English over Japanese lyrics, but that's OK - it's an Equivalent Exchange...
  2. Test

  3. nostaglic98 said; "and very small areas where the actual information you want is displayed" The worst standout example of this is a members messages. PREVIOUS board layout - (in a approx 1/2 page size right side panel;) You could view one page with a scroll bar (something like 15+ messages without scrolling), of message headings and part message, that's about 50 messages with scrolling, if I remember correctly. The remaining messages accessible and viewable as previously described, simply by clicking on a page '2' button. NOW Inbox (in a smaller left side panel;) You can view 5 messages, with only about a 6 to 8 words of the message beginning, with a scroll bar to reach all the remaining messages, which are loaded dynamically to the bottom of the scrollable area BUT you can only see 5 messages at a time. This is not helpful if you are trying to find a message by remembering (relating) when it was in relation to other messages you received. (Also, I can't remember if there was previously a 'Sent' box for 'sent' messages, but there doesn't seem to be one (NOW) that I can see.) Sigh. Is there no way the old format/layout of the board can be accessed, perhaps by a 'legacy theme'?

  6. New Issue with links to post

    jaclaz said; (IN RELATION TO MEMBER CONTENT ITEMs ENUMERATION RESULTS) (Ref Post #8 above) "If I go to" ... [Acheron's]" "member page" and look for content I get: Topics and posts: There have been 103 items by Acheron Only Topics: There have been 13 items by Acheron Only Posts: There have been 415 items by Acheron" ..."if you actuallly started 13 topics and posted in total 415 times, you should have any of 415 "items" or 415-13=402 "items" in the latter. I have to presume that it is some "quirk" in the way the database is managed internally." {Above quoting rearranged and compacted somewhat for brevity!.} On this matter I have no IP.Board references, but rather this theory: Using a somewhat smaller sample/example, the Content of Member dinkydi , http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&mid=160984 we see; Topics and posts:__ 8 items Only Topics:_______ 7 items Only Posts:_______ 10 items Examining all that content, as at 12th January 2016 there are; 10 Posts total. 7 Topics started (initial post by dinkydi), of which 2 of those Topics each contain 1 additional post by dinkydi (so 7 + 1 + 1 ) . 1 post in a topic not started by dinkydi (so, reality check with above, 7 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 10 , agrees with the 10 Only Posts) . Therefore it appears the enumeration of items actually works like this; Topics and posts:__ 8 items (sum of; Topics started by member + Posts in Topics not started by member) Only Topics:_______ 7 items (sum of; Topics started by member) Only Posts:_______ 10 items (sum of; Posts by member). N.B. the numbers in the above items could change if any of those items ceased to be searchable in the database. This may occur if for example, a Topic you posted in was deleted, or posts you made were deleted (say you accidently double posted and asked a moderator to delete the second post). Uhh, and of course, remember that Topics that are 'Archived' are not searchable in the database - (well, not at MSFN and probably most IP.Boards, although this Topic; https://community.invisionpower.com/topic/359394-search-and-archives-say-it-isnt-so/?page=1 suggests that it may be/may have been possible to have an option in 'Advanced Seach' on some Ip.Boards to do a separate search only within the Archived section - depending if such IP.Board uses a database engine capable of searching multiple indexes...). One last point, here; http://www.msfn.org/board/user/160984-dinkydi/ we see that dinkydi is attributed 11 active posts - more than the 10 listed above - not sure why that is, possibly that enumeration is a singular field attached to a members profile, incremented only upon each post by the member. If that's the case, searchable results would have no bearing upon it (which would explain why my equivalent profile page always shows about +6 more active posts than my searchable content lists ...I've posted in a deleted Topic, had some double posts removed and probably some of my post(s) have ended up in an archive). Ciao Addendum: There is seen currently on the MSFN webpage; http://www.msfn.org/ an 'Archives' heading which is clickable with this link URL; http://www.msfn.org/author/xper/ however this merely seems to be a listing of MSFN 'general interest' news releases.
  7. New Issue with links to post

    But @jaclaz , (IN RELATION TO YOUR FAULTY LINKS REDIRECTION), you haven't said what browser Version on what OS Version you are experiencing this. I don't see this behaviour, and when pasted to the address bar, the link; hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/topic/61384-how-to-bootinstall-from-usb-key/?p=680254 does resolve immediately correctly for me, to entry 680254 (i.e. post #287 in that topic). Interestingly though, I see that copying, pasting the (xx -fixed) URL; hxxp://www.msfn.org/board/topic/61384-how-to-bootinstall-from-usb-key/page-20#entry680254 into address bar of Firefox v28 running on XPSP3 on an i865G small desktop connected via 100Mbps to an ADSL2 modem, returns initially page 20 of that topic, as evidenced by seeing Page 20 of 20 for a second or so. However, after that second or so, I see that page 20 is replaced by page 12, displaying correctly entry 680254. Maybe Acheron is right that it is a server (parsing) issue, except it is maybe also dependant on your browser (could your browser be sending a somewhat differently parsed request to the MSFN server, compared to other browsers?) FYI, behaviour you are experiencing of being redirected to the first page of the topic with a truncated URL, is as behaviour for this previous fault; https://www.invisionpower.com/support/kb/_/old-page-findpost-p-x-links-do-not-redirect-correctly-r26

FYI, here are the (translated from german) relevant comments from that above mentioned thread; http://www.tomshardware.de/foren/240926-26-suche-windows-treiber-chipsatz "Asus P5K (P35 [so PCI-E ver 1.1] + ICH9 Southbridge) with Pentium Dual Core E6300 [2.8GHz]@ 3GHz 1GB RAM (even recognized!) Geforce 6800GT 512MB PCIe" [not stated if installed in 'blue x16 mode' PCI-E slot or 'black x4/x1 mode' slot - I note this because the relevance is that while the blue slot is surely off the P35, the black slot may be off the ICH9 southbridge..] [Format C mentions] "ForceWare 81.98 is really stable and performat enough for 98" "LAN, sound and SATA [are all] disabled" "everything hung on the IDE."[JMicron JMB363] "That SATA also in IDE mode does not work, I know" installed cards; "external Realtek network card C-Media Audio (AC97)" "First, I have the complete '98 installation files copied to the disk and then install Windows. The missing chipset drivers, I even "tinkered" (also thanks to @7oby for the link!)" [Note: this link;] http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=97588&st=80&p=748075entry748075 "That which was linked there, although not directly helped me (because, unfortunately, only for G31 / ICH7), but the idea was right and with a little logical thinking skills, almost all relevant areas were umfrickeln analogy. Only the USB host spackt a little, but this is rather marginal. Fact: Windows 98 even starts with the dual-core on the new board!" "The OS sees only the single-core" [i.e. 'sees only a single-core' of the dual-core cpu.] "The next problem was the added sent from nVidia graphics card that was not detected in this version of the driver. So again INF-Gefrickel and manually install the driver instead of the Setup program. Successfully, because the map runs. Even with fan control. Windows 98 to 1920 x 1200 is not very funny, but it works;)" [Note; so probably modified the graphic driver INF so that the card is in the inf file of the driver.] "DirectX 9c is now running well, now I just have to find an old version of Fraps [game capture fps video recorder], which is stable under the 98" "I want anyway test with 1 and 2 cores. But what amazes me is that after my Frickelei suddenly 1021 MB RAM (comical value) are available. The complete start (measured between F8 forced Start menu) and desktop less than 3 seconds! However, the desktop does not have a pause of about 5 seconds." "NFS Underground 2 is on it and runs ever. With widescreen patch. My goodness, that was long ago. The old 6800GT even creates 4 x AA at full resolution. Amazing." [Note:game reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Need_for_Speed:_Underground_2 ]

  10. Strange fonts or characters (Opera 12.02)

    @CharlesF The webpages being shifted slightly top-left (out of frame) & larger 'fonts' is mentioned here; http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-xp/windows-xp-fonts-corrupted/183296.html and here; http://labnol.blogspot.com.au/2006/03/how-to-fix-windows-xp-font-problems.html The symptoms are described and (ignoring the virus suggestion) remedies, such as clearing the 'Font Cache' (i.e.; C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.DAT ) then restarting, and/or such as merely resetting the windows default font size 'DPI setting' (Custom Setting) (via the 'General' tab in your monitors 'Display Properties' dialog) to 75%, then returning it back to 100% and restarting. Unfortunately, there is no suggestion as to how to prevent the fault re-occuring.
  11. Well, I haven't seen this bug mentioned... 'When attempting to track back through the 'page numbered lists' of older topics, eventually a point is reached in the page lists where the topic title can be seen, but the link to the topic seems damaged, and does not display the topic posts.' To experience bug; In most MSFN webpages, find your membername towards the top left hand corner. Directly below your membername, is what appears to be a readout of the current path of directories. Now, for example, say you see; MSFN/Miscellaneous/Site & Forum Issues and you click on 'Site & Forum Issues', then see (for example) Page 1 to 56 nn, and you click on the ('double right pointing chevrons'=)Earliest page (which are the highest numbered pages). What you see is the topics listings with all the topics displayed like this; (e.g. for a topic called 'very dumb question') very dumb question _______________________-1 replies______Guest__* Started by Guest__* , --_____________________1,908 views_______-- (Note; the '-1' you see above is not a typo.) If you click on the topic name, it sends you to a page containing the topic but the topic posts are missing. Also, in our example above, where you are on the last page (56 ?), if you click through the pages towards the present day, you will find eventually a 'changeover point' where the topics lists will return to normal - in this example the topic lists change back to normal on about page 53 or 54. (Note; the page numbers quoted here will change, of course, in the following weeks, as new posts topics are created and cause the topic list numbering to be incremented upward in number). The bug makes it difficult to access old topics (posts) if the topics are listed beyond the 'changeover point'. I do have a direct link for an old post (the first ever MSFN post, actually); and that oldest post is still there and obviously accessible, so hopefully this bug is only affecting the link to each topic, in the pages of topic lists, beyond a certain point (the bug does not appear to be date-related). Other (random) examples; MSFN Forum/Unattended Windows Discussion & Support/Device Drivers see page 98 , 99 and back MSFN Forum/Microsoft Software Products/Windows 9x / ME page 185 , 186 and back Cheers
  12. New Stars Wars Movie -- will you go to see it?

    Ha ha ha, seems like similar opinions are echoed in the video on the website; http://www.dearjjabrams.com/ .
  13. Glitched thread

    Xper says; "Maybe, I say maybe we will loose some threads"... Gulp. (I seem to remember several years back Xper mentioned the size of the database was ~ 700MB {as it stood on the server, in compacted database form, then, I guess}). Doesn't seem unreasonable to make a backup as it stands now, before the full change is applied to the database, so there is no way that any threads are lost... forever?
  14. ATI Graphics Crashing

    I wonder if the actions usually taken to mitigate the ATI 'hardware cursor bug' might also act to mitigate this problem? (but probably not fix it). Worth a try - set in Control Panel, Mouse Properties, Display Pointer Trails to 'on' (and its' slider bar to minimum), and check 'off' Enable Pointer Shadow (then Reboot).
