 A small outage
Posted by Daniel - February 18th, 2014 - 22:21
There was a small outage earlier today. Someone else on the same box as us got DDoSed and the server went boom!
It's back now, Continue your stalking of Kuro-chan!

Some top-of-the-line DS9 Rankset Images can be found by clicking the link.

Also, I think my Ranks page needs some sort of shuffling around. It feels like much of the work is jumbled and out of place.

UPDATE: Answering Eliana Tamerin's question: What has changed is:
  • Different Admiral Trim
  • Minor changes to the Alpha Channel
  • Uses the most recent pip set which was re-created at the start of the year for Meyer's Thin DS9 Ranks project.
  • Additional Cadet and Warrant Officer varities.

Special thanks to Stephen Clark for his incentive... once I get it.

I was also asked about why the change in Warrant Officer ranks. I have been getting a lot of feedback about users wanting different variants of the Warrant Officers. Some want a pips-version, others want single chevrons, etc. So, I ended up creating 3 different variants and put them in separate folders. To make it work with current Nova, move whatever warrant ranks you want to use into the other folder with your navy ranks and it should be good (I do not sim, thus do not use Nova, so I am relying on what others tell me).

 Bug on my Provider End
Posted by Kuro-chan - February 13th, 2014 - 23:21
Currently there seems to be a problem on my provider's end with Sessions. We are working on resolving it. I have noticed I cannot log out at the moment, so I know it affects logging in & out.

UPDATE on Feb. 16th: My provider says it's fixed.

 Another Set is Up.

Hello again. This is Kuro-chan or Kuro-RPG here to announce a 'latest version' of the TNG Ranksets.

You can view it Here.

Special thanks to Jessica of #kepler (IRC) for helping to push and encourage me through getting this set done. People like you are pretty good at motivating me to get the job done.

In the meanwhile, I am not hearing about any demand for the Nova 3-style sets, so unless that changes, I will focus on the old-style ranksets, even though they are more work.

UPDATE 1: For a couple days, the site was acting a bit slower than normal. Apparently, the host server suffered a sort of 'Spambot Attack'. Might also explain the werid emails that keep popping up one of my email accounts...?

UPDATE 2: Looks like the domain was down for a couple hours during the wee hours. Well, obviously we are back up. I blame my provider.

UPDATE 3: Answering Eliana Tamerin's question(Posted February 17th): What has changed is:
  • Different Admiral Trim
  • Minor changes to the Alpha Channel
  • Uses the most recent pip set which was re-created at the start of the year for Meyer's Thin DS9 Ranks project.
  • Additional Cadet and Warrant Officer varities.

I was working on the editor for the Links section. I also removed over 20 dead links.

I was surprised...

 W-w-wait... I put something up?!

Yeah I did.

True Story!
Just have to click here!
It is new.
It even uses newer pips.

... I would be scared too, if I was in my shoes... Wait...

The idea behind the project was to some up with a DS9 variant that used a smaller image. While it is difficulty to condense the width without losing dept. colors or have the pips cut-off, it was very possible to cut off the height of the image, so they make better list images.

Thanks to #SimTrekChat IRC Chatroom and especially Meyer for the push and incentive to get this set done. It helps when I have some good, useful and practical direction.

On another note: I have disabled Ratings for the time being, until I can come up with a system that won't result in everyone's ratings tanking. I will entertain ideas on how to handle this.

 Scam of the Week

I received an email in my box, claiming to be from "QuickBooks Invoice". It reads:
"Please find attached your invoices for the past months. Remit the payment by 01/07/2013 as outlines under our "Payment Terms" agreement.

Thank you for your business,

Lane Burke

The email address looks legit, but other sites have stated it's a fabrication. It includes a .pdf file, which can be coded to include trojans/viruses/etc.
