Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Would be nice, but at a glance it doesn't seem like the EE World Archive has links to worlds.

posting this here for reference because we get a lot of useful information from it. once a role is confirmed we can narrow down the other PRs significantly

Okay so there's 3 PRs total, all in a row around this clock, and everyone else is vanilla townies?

#5 Re: Forum Discussion » Is registration still working? » 2024-03-20 10:48:36

Yes, registrations are locked out since the email system is broken due to the evolving anti-spam landscape. No need to panic, my email still works and allegedly I'll still respond to that

I am screaming, I am crying, I am **** my pants.

So overall, pretty good.

Lol I haven't been gone that long. But last I checked in the dev team was going dark for a while when it comes to community interaction. I imagine it's still moving along behind the scenes unless there's been any big developments I've missed.

In the year of our lord 2022 2023, I'm content leaving "Guest" as "Guest" since there's more than unconverted accounts using that label. The other two though can be done.

EDIT: Wait, what are you doing on a 32 bit computer? Even Linux distros are dropping support for 32 bit. The last ones of those were made like over a decade ago, and they were horrible, horrible things barely suitable for word processing. The last 32 bit CPU worth anything is even older than that.

I really don't care what linux distros do, and it is very easy for us in the western world to simply go "buy a newer computer".
But quite simply many older machines are slower now because of incapable operating systems, not because the systems became slower over time.
Webkit supports 32bit computers yes, but while I can run my game just fine on these 32bit computers I don't really know if i want to spend all the effort to get webgl2 and wasm running "well" on those machines. Native code really is faster there, especially with modern browsers having a much bigger footprint every version.

And to answer your question of "what are you doing on a 32bit computer"
I would say: Why would I throw away a computer that runs *faster* with the OS I run on it than any windows 10 machine I have touched, if the garbage windows 10 calls an OS is enough speed for people than my 10 year old machine that runs faster ought to be enough easily.

I am all for permacomputing but that's not something you can drag the rest of the world into. At some point you gotta realize that a machine has fallen behind and needs to be retasked.

And I didn't say anything about W10, I said 32 bit CPUs. You can run any OS you want. But again, the last 32 bit CPU was released more than 10 years ago and it was hot trash. The last good 32 bit CPU was released more than 15 years ago. You can take a modern chip and run old software on it. You cannot (indefinitely) take modern software and run it on an older chip. There's a reason the permacomputing movement focuses on creating new, efficient, portable software rather than adapting existing software.

Webrowsers are the oposite of "runs on a potato".

I'm usually all on board the "web is bloat, return to native code" bandwagon, even going a step further to "80x24 oughta be enough for anybody" sometimes but... Web tech absolutely has its uses especially where development resources are scarce, it actually is pretty efficient if you are the tiniest bit mindful of your step, but most of all:

If your potato is of such quality that it can't run a browser, like, that pretty much kicks any kind of game that isn't text based straight out of the picture. And even some games that are text based. Web browsers run on every potato except fossilized ones, that's one of their main benefits.

Dear community,

After holding several racial awareness training sessions internally, we have taken the time to review our policies regarding new user registration. Our review unfortunately concluded that these policies are heavily biased against South Asian citizens, for reasons that cannot be justified. In practice, this resulted in our "spam filter" excluding the voices of our brothers and sisters in primarily the Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi EE communities. This was an egregious error on our part, and was driven by our desire to improve thread and post quality, based on a lack of awareness of different cultures' definitions of "spam".

We sincerely apologise for this mistake. We are reaching out to the affected communities to make amends, and hope to hold workshops and learning sessions with them to review our remaining policies and eliminate any further biases. This will be the first step in a series of efforts to bring our forums into the 21st century.

Effective immediately, we are disabling the forum "spam filter" for users in the affected countries, empowering them to share, learn, debate, create and thrive as they should have been. Please let us make every effort to welcome these users, and to embrace and celebrate our differences through measured and thoughtful discussion.

Thank you,

Forum Staff

It was 60°F (15.5C) here today but here, have some symbolic snow in symbolic celebration of the symbolic holidays and warm yourself in front of a nice, toasty computer/laptop/phone/other such device.

#18 Re: Forum Discussion » help why arent any posts loading :( » 2021-07-16 22:27:31

Wouldn't be a bad idea. Didn't realize it was so large, it wasn't loading at all for me.

I must have been browsing the wrong section of the Microsoft store before, my bad. Plenty of these do support Windows 11. Plenty of machines that are certainly still top-of-the-line are excluded, though, just based solely on the processor whitelist. Even if they support TPM 2.0, although I still have no idea why TPM is a deal-breaker at all, 1.2 or 2.0 or 0.0.

From what I've heard the minimum specs listed on that site are only for new windows devices coming with Windows 11 preinstalled, there are lower requirements for upgrading to Windows 11 that almost all semi-recent devices should meet. (The TPM 2.0 requirement is replaced with TPM 1.2, among other things)

I've heard a few times from a few people that this is the OEM list and does not apply to existing PCs, but at this point we've had a company VP confirm that it'll apply to upgrading PCs as well as a compatibility/health tool that is following those guidelines. Like you pointed out, those guidelines have also been updated to remove the previous "soft floor" limits like 1.2, and despite backlash MS hasn't rushed to backtrack or clarify anything, they're sticking to their guns that these are the requirements. The CPU whitelist really isn't making a lot of sense, either. AFAICT Zen and Zen+ are identical, just a process update. No new features were included in Zen+ that should justify excluding Zen. I think the same goes for 7th gen vs 8th gen on the Intel side. No new features, just more cores.

Everyone's laptop is too old to run windows 11. AFAICT none of the hardware that Microsoft themselves is currently selling, even for multiple thousands of USD, supports Windows 11, although I'll admit I did not search at all exhaustively.
