Mark SuckerBurger (no spelling error there) surely (is a fact actually) has a mountain of info on people who have never been on fb.

Re: The future of our forum - facebook versus web forums

A program to resize images is kind of cheesy and we need software that will innately handle this for us for sure. Forking phpbb would be a pain. The forum had a revolt in 2011 or was it 2012? over commercialization, which i was a part of... Touchy subject, to say the least :lol: We can talk about th...

Re: The future of our forum - facebook versus web forums

Oh you mean something that would resize images as they're being uploaded to make uploads easier. Yeah that's a huge code change and future maintenance nightmare that i'm not willing to take on. It's a key reason we want to get away from phpbb. it's shocking that phpbb hasn't added some basic code to...

I feel your pain, I used to look after a phpbb forum or two for a few years. ....

Re: The future of our forum - facebook versus web forums

I've actually written an addon to phpBB that does exactly that. However, testing the code to ensure it doesn't corrupt or degrade images in an unexpected way on a 40gb set of images is a holdup and takes dozens of hours :/ why? it wouldnt need (or want?) to be used on anything already uploaded to t...

phpbb3.3 is out after 3 years, but doesn't contain much useful stuff for us other than emoji support, different notifications, and a bit better spam protection.

Re: High performance & durability Cannondale Semi Recumbent

CBD is not a COX2 inhibitor. I wasn't suggesting it as a curative but merely as a potentially better way to relieve inflammation and pain than the ibuprofen that you were taking ... apparently to no notable benefit. Understood, i wish it worked better... i've got a nice supplement stack that works ...

Re: High performance & durability Cannondale Semi Recumbent

I've never had notable relief from CBD, ibuprofen, etc. Almost every anti inflammatory will prevent natural cartilage repair and growth ( look up PGE2 and the COX2 pathway ), so ideally you don't want that.. it's like repeatedly throwing new tires on a car that's got a severe alignment problem.

re PSUs, you'd be surprised at how little power modern hardware requires.. it will only get lower over time. My gaming rig has a high efficiency rated 250w seasonic power supply that powers 2 SSDs, a Nvidia 1060, and a 3.5ghz intel quad core from 2013, which is a watt guzzler compared to say, a newe...

Re: Warning about Endless Sphere from Firefox

A lot of low budget operations ( raises hand ) use free letsencrypt certificates, and they expire every 3 months. Setting them to auto renew can be fraught with problems. Notifications can be missed if things aren't set right.

A lot of webmasters drop the ball here and i'm sorry we did.

Re: Internally geared BLDC motor

My big concern is that it has an open case and will need to be sealed to live a long life in the elements.
And where's the dyno sheet?
Better be a damned good motorat that kind of price.
It would be sweet to have a 1lb motor and thus a 3lbs mid drive for sure..

Re: Internally geared BLDC motor

$400 for a 500w rated air cooled motor... OK, it's only 1lb, but that's asking quite a lot.

Personally i'd rather get a little dual reduction geared hub instead, for a third of the price.. i can stand another 5lbs!

Re: Is a 24s battery dangerous?

A precharge connector/system is an absolute must at that voltage. Otherwise you will destroy every battery connection you build. You'll also want a controller with 4115 FETs. 100v will blow 4110 FETs. Of course high voltage is dangerous. Finding a BMS for that voltage is dangerous. I prefer high amp...
