Re: [ pic post ] what does your desktop look like ?

Reviving a dead thread. I'm quite taken with this KDE spin of Fedora, although it does need updating. Still moving stuff over to Linux, so it's not on my desktop yet sadly. desktop.png Incidentally, that last image I posted is still the background for my primary monitor - some... seven(?) years later

Re: Ladle 117 (6th September 2020)

...not another tournament we'll play once and forget about... I'm not sure we'd just forget about it, but perhaps it might be a good idea to put it on hold until we have a more stable and diverse player base. Maybe you should write a wiki page for it, that's what 2020 did for the Tronic <kitchen ut...

Re: Ladle 117 (6th September 2020)

I like Sine's idea, actually, but I think it might be better suited to a tournament of it's own. Perhaps it could be held on the last Sunday of every month, and we could call it something like the Whisk.

Actually, now I really like that idea.

Re: Ladle match generation

Pretty much the entire working code is contained within two action methods in form1.cs - it's not pretty, but it serves a purpose. It's pretty replicatable in PHP or JS, so sure

Re: Ladle match generation

I had no idea those tools existed tbh. It's super simple - stick the name of each team into the add team box, then click <code>Create Match</code> until no valid teams remain. I'll add functionality for seeded teams and whatnot later on down the road if they're needed, but it was really just somethi...

Ladle match generation

Since the IRC channel is now inoperable and it falls on volunteers to create the ladle matchups, I made a small application that achieves the same thing. It's built in my Windows VM, but should be fully operable within WINE. Full source has been posted to the Wiki, but it might be helpful if someone...

Re: filter names impossible task ?

Since there are a limited number of current authentication methods, I would simply use an exact match filter - strip out @forums, @lt, @armanelgtron.tk and you're golden.

Re: Branch name adjustments

The question I'd rather ask is whether our communication shows compassion and respect. And is honest in that, of course. Your point is well taken. I suppose my concern is "are we simply pretending it never happened". Nevertheless, I think it prudent to point a few eople to this thread and gauge the...

Re: Branch name adjustments

Perhaps whim is the wrong word. I suppose what I'm suggesting is that we may not be the most qualified to answer the question "is this offensive" or "does this warrant change". Moreover, it might appear more offensive to make such token gestures without actually consulting those to whom we are attem...

Re: Branch name adjustments

You know, it strikes me that we (as a society, not just the Armagetron community) seem to be arbitrarily making decisions about what is offensive and what is not. I wonder if we might not better be equipped to understand what we should be looking at within society if we actually asked the persons wh...

Re: Branch name adjustments

With respect to "Master copy", "Master Server", "Master template" et al, this is an example of multi-definitive language in English. It has no relation to indentured servitude, unlike the term "master/slave", from which such a relationship can be inferred. Rather, it infers "leader" or "commander" -...

Re: var/bans.txt symbolic link ?

It's not, but a CFG is just a structured plaintext file with extra steps. You can rename the bash script to mcp.cfg and it's perfectly fine - although windows might add some weird spacing chars. There's plenty of options to get around that though. Here's your script Galaxip: http://resource.armagetr...

Re: Authentication with unusual URLs

Now that's interesting. nanohttp contains a method for xmlNanoHTTPAuthHeader, which might have some unique value. I'll take a trawl over the source later. Meanwhile, what are the chances of getting a shortlink? It's a long URL to type, and the idea was to create an easy to access authentication serv...
