Re: progress

Changing your password has nothing to do with it, joykler. Tiel doesn't actually have access to your account, as demonstrated by the fact that he didn't reply to the PM I sent you. He still has administrative powers on the forum, and he's using them to post in your name. Your account is not being used to make these posts. I apologize for the hassle Tiel has caused everyone today. Also, joykler, there is a rule about swearing, although granted these are somewhat unusual circumstances.

Re: progress

If that were the case said actions would show up in the administrative logs, as I would have to log in to the ACP to commandeer his account.

They don't.

Nice theory, but no dice. I don't have admin powers anymore, I thought we made that clear.

Re: progress

I've never been entirely clear on what makes stuff show up in the logs. For example, nothing involving the chatbox shows up in the moderator log, even though editing or deleting posts there requires moderator powers.

Re: progress

Not in the moderator logs.

In the administrator logs under the Maintenance tab. Every single admin log in is detected and tracked there, since the launch of the forum - there's no way to remove entries.

I know I won't show up on there since I haven't had admin permissions since February.

@joykler

I never had your password. There is literally no way for me to get it unless I put malware directly on your PC - PHPbb doesn't even offer admins that ability. They're kept encrypted in a MySQL database where they're kept in strings like @#($*FH$EFJJJ#)#@ which the software decodes with a specialized key not even I have access to.

Re: progress

What I did do was replace your password hash with my own in the database, letting me log in to your account with my own password and pretend to be me, and later, hyperlite. I recognize this was a severe misuse of power and it's not going to happen again (granted, as LJS pointed out he, Mack, or fr0st could do the same thing without going through nearly as much trouble through the ACP). I just wanted to lighten up the mood since things were getting pretty tense in here. My apologies.

Re: progress

Wow, you people write a lot whenever I am predisposed.

Okay, here is my progress update: I got my database down to 19 reference tables and 4 multi-entrant tables. Whole thing is handled via the Microsoft Sync Framework 2.1, and I'm using a compact SQL server at each node, all but one of which run in a peer-to-peer distributed framework. The advantage of this is that I no longer need to maintain an inter-process communications framework to pass data around, because each process can access the compact SQL server directly, making it easier to modify and expand to other services in the future. Data is represented in the business layer via ADO Entity Framework, reading directly off the compact database and generally being more capable than the ADO datasets it replaced. This is the first time we've ever used this method. Because the multi-entrant tables can be written to from multiple sources in a p2p network, and because the network topology is designed to handle intermittent disconnects from the internet, I also had to modify the primary key scheme so that records produced on un-synced nodes don't cause collisions. The sync framework prevents me from propagating cascading updates on the primary key because it is used for change tracking, so the alternative is using large semi-random values called GUIDs to provide unique keys, or creating a compound key with one of the columns being a unique identifier. I wasn't able to get in contact with our database architect to find out which one to implement, so I went with the latter, the idea being that it will fragment less as well as provide an indicator for the origin of each record. Not necessary, but potentially handy for reports.

Two weeks ago, I didn't know the first thing about anything I just mentioned; I've had to learn everything from the ground up. This is my 5th design of the data framework, and it has to be perfect this time because I can't afford to spend time on a #6. I'm generally in the office 11-12 hours a day trying to do everything I can to complete this project so that I will actually have time again to work on Futurecraft. I've been on this project for the last eight months, have at least one more month to go, and it's only going to get harder from here on out.

TL;DR I've been busy. I will work on Futurecraft when I have time. Supr sryz 4 tha wait.

*edit*
Don't feel too sorry for me, though. I am getting paid embarrassingly well to do this.
