  1. That's why we're finally getting this site https compliant in a couple of weeks. Right now the address for this site is http://www.therushforum.com, but the search engines like Google and DuckDuckGo have us listed as https://www.therushforum.com. So when you click their link, you get nothing. I had no idea they had us listed that way until recently. Ah, that explains that little issue...had me scratching my head...had to an alternative route to log in. I can't believe how long that problem has existed. It's not something I ever thought to check for, even knowing we were still in need of an SSL certificate -- "Does our link in a search result actually work?" Who knows how many people were looking for a Rush forum to join, found us on Google, clicked the link and got nothing, then just walked away. It's embarrassing. Our pages are are asp.net, but here's a redirect I wrote to handle a related issue where we want to load our https page even if users came to it from an http link: string current_url = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri; if(current_url.IndexOf("https://") == -1) { current_url = current_url.Replace("http://", "https://"); Response.Redirect(current_url); } It may be possible to do something similar here.
  2. Yes, fetching records out of a set of 5 million is going to take some time, regardless of indexing. And yes, your parameters are extremely conservative. I have a ticketing tool app that archives cases 30 days after their closure date. Are all the posted comments stored in a single table or does each sub-forum have a dedicated table? Single table. I don't know enough about this stuff to know if that's advantageous or not. I think it's probably fine. Having them all in one table certainly makes house-keeping tasks, such as archiving, easier. The most obvious drawback is that the table has a buttload of rows.

  4. I mentioned that at the top. I moved it out earlier today. Felt like giving it more exposure. Some talented people here. :Alex: I approve of this message.
  5. My god, don't you know how important it is in SOCN to be able to hold someone accountable for something they said back when Bush was still POTUS?! The horror! I'm pretty sure SOCN goes back to the days of Stalin. Besides, archived or not, those posts you made campaigning for Ross Perot will still be in there. ;) Just lay back and enjoy it.

  7. June 11th, 1977 Amazing coincidence. You had a cameo in a dream I had last night: My family and I were visiting some sort of water-themed amusement park and we ran into you. Introductions were made. You seemed slightly disappointed.
  8. First, I wouldn't throw a flag on the play for politics. You don't mention either political party, any single US politician or place blame on anyone other Putin, who ya know invaded a neighbor. Second, I'm 99.8% sure it's all bluster. Using nukes is a military tactic. Talking about using nukes is a diplomatic tactic. Thank you Jarg. Always a voice of reason. I read somewhere that the US and Russia are constantly aware of the other's nuclear alertness levels, and that the big public announcement was for little other reason than to scare common citizens who don't know about such things. I guess it worked on me! Screw you, Putin! There ya' go!

  10. Really well done, including the work done by (what I assume are) your bandmates!
  11. Who is John Galt? I'm Spartacus.
  12. It's because he likely can't. The Working Man Live in Cleveland is all the proof one needs that Alex is a pale facsimile of what he once was. He still my favorite guitarist, and I am still moved by his earlier work, but he's not the guitarist he used to be.

    Great reaction vid

    Yup. When Alex bends up to that high E rather than going for the F, which is the minor third where D is the tonal root, he removes the tonality of the chord (major vs. minor) and implies that the chord is sus2.

    Maybe I'm partial because I'm a guitarist, but this was great. http://youtu.be/gElx2L1BamE
  15. Yes, that pretty much sums it up for me, too. If I hadn't known Alex was involved, I would've made it about 30 seconds before passing with a "is Sade trying make a comeback?" comment

    Not a fan

    I remember reading this in the magazine back in the day.
  17. The only reason I listened to it all the way through is because I felt obligated to given how much I admire Alex. Not really my cup of tea at all.

    A fan is born

  19. The drumming was very impressive, but I think I'm more impressed with the stitching together of the songs.

  21. Alex certainly captured the spirit of the solo.
