:steele: JFC, it is too early for this shit. Login cookies were default set in the code to expire in the far, far off future of Jan 1, 2020. Fixed it, hopefully we don't lose anybody. Happy new year.πŸ˜… πŸŽ‰ ]

Hopefully you have your passwords or your email account is up to date. If you can't get back in, email sensibleendowment at gmail and with your credit card and social security we'll verify your account and get you back in.

To be fair who ever thought SE or the code would last to 2020. Happy New Year.

matt or marck fucking planned this. lol, maybe, I dunno. All I know is it wasn't me. I just went to double check the original codebase I started with and the 2020 was already in there.

Reminds me of all those scrolling film intros "In the far far distant future of 1999."

3030. No fucking way we're lasting that long.

Good try. You'll not get rid of me that easily.

And... When I tried to post this on my android phone (chrome),the "post" button went away the minute a letter was added to the box.

That is a chrome mobile thing. Turn your phone sideways and then back to normal and the box will realign. Fuck if I know why it does that. Sometimes chrome will also decide not to load half the front page, but then you do a select all and it's there.

The layout still makes heavy use of tables. This triggers a different CSS layout mode: Basically, it waits for all elements to appear before finisihing the render.

Due to performance throttling this may be the reason for mobile glitches.

I figured it was something like that when I checked. It turns out you couldn't log back in if you selected "until logged out." Selecting "session" got me logged back in.

I got a 'data breach' notification after I logged back in. I'm going to ignore it.

Data breach. HA! That's funny.

Is that like paying bills every month?
mechanical contrivance said @ 7:39pm GMT on 2nd Jan
No, that's something else.

Seems like the same thing to me. Private data for content and convenience.
steele said @ 8:07pm GMT on 2nd Jan
Weird. From your browser? Might be because we're not using ssl.
ethanos said @ 5:50pm GMT on 7th Jan
aha... now I see where thieves found my old passwords.
steele said @ 6:46pm GMT on 7th Jan
? SE doesn't store your password in plaintext so it wasn't from here. Unless you mean that I've been selling user information in which case, yeah, I thought I made that very clear. ;)

plus: I would like some attribution for some of the graphics on the page.
steele said @ 6:47pm GMT on 7th Jan
Is that yours?πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ It's got a sig on it...
ethanos said @ 8:57pm GMT on 7th Jan
No... I was just trying to figure out where the drawing came from and if there was more story behind it. Thx.

Oh, no idea, that's from the first site.
