Re: Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

Me: "Hey, Z-Girl, the folks on the Tron forum suggested *I* should just build you an electric bicycle."
Z-Girl: "NO!!!!!"
She knows my weaknesses :)

Re: Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

Hah! I wish I could build anything in the real world. My skills end at shelves. I can saw boards to the right length. And sometimes, I can repair stuff. I replaced a broken spoke on my bike the other day!

Re: Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

I totally want one of those but it would get stolen immediately. That's less of a worry, they're kind of rare and thus easy to track down if stolen. Easier than all the normal bicycles that somehow end up in Eastern Europe here, anyway :) Vandalizing, that's what I'd worry about. The open design is...

Re: Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

Oh well, never mind. Turns out there are two problems there as well: - that particular model cuts the motor out at 11km/h already. Probably hackable with the old "mask ever other impulse from the speed sensor" trick, but still. There's also a Chinese knockoff without that drawback. - Z-Girl is not o...

Re: US Election 2016

Well, almost there... wishing you guys over the big pond all the luck. I firmly believe that there are enough sensible people distributed all over the political spectrum that a civil war is only a very remote possibility. As for riots and assaults by a few well armed nutters... I'm just hoping for a...

Best or worst idea? Getting a Velotaxi/Rikshaw for private use

Right. We're a family of three. We do not currently have a car and don't really need one; what we generally do is in a 10km radius of our home, so well in bicycle range. There are just two problems: - a most typical trip would involve physical activity for Z-Girl at the destination. If we take the b...

Re: Pickup Servers: Disconnects, Timeouts

Ah! That was my evil tournament patch. It simply stopped the game clock there for a bit. That is, the rate of the game clock to the real time clock was modified. I suppose we could make that available separately as a not quite as evil server command/setting.

Re: Pickup Servers: Disconnects, Timeouts

Huh, I don't remember that. Did I maybe just make the pause that catting players can cause at the start of the round effectively infinite? That's the PLAYER_CHAT_WAIT_ family of settings. I also once froze everyone by setting the cycle speed to 0, I think, it may have been someone else. That was a b...

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

I think the system first downloads the file to disk, then reads it from there. So if the file is not writable, nothing will work. What would work is wrapping the server in a script with a loop (everybody does that already, yeah?) and deleting the automatic resource directory every time. Or, better, ...
