#1806029 Duplication Glitch?

Posted by Cript on 29 September 2014 - 03:36 PM

AFAIK the dupe doesn't work anymore.

 

It definitely does still work...




#1806011 Duplication Glitch?

Posted by Cript on 29 September 2014 - 02:32 PM

They'll have to just rollback the servers. You can't just delete items or freeze people with duped ones anymore, not when items are converted to pure, placed into albums, etc. Joke of a site.




#1680506 Using Amazon EC2

Cript started after me. He'd PM me for information once upon a time.

 

And I recall you not sharing any info at all...then when SL and I figured everything out on our own, got to the point where we couldn't miss, and then you decided to stop and start sharing with everyone else. :)

Still a decent group here from ~9 years ago.

Pretty serious horseshit...you should have created a ticket. Nothing in their TOS says you can't use those names.




#1654465 Is this way of transferring items safe?

Posted by Cript on 12 March 2013 - 02:27 PM

I've experimented with this method and it's definitely not safe. If they want to track where items went, this won't help. The biggest problem is that it's an obvious transfer - you just happen to be looking for the exact item and just happen to find some idiot who priced the items at 1 np. 

 

People need to understand that the proper way for transfers is to make them look realistic, trade an item that's worth 10M for 5M, trade an item that's worth 5M for 800k, etc.




#1641056 HTTP Referer

Posted by Cript on 06 December 2012 - 02:34 PM

I remember pointing this out for programs but indeed looks like it needs to be done on the forum as well.

I've personally always just clicked a different site before heading to Neo so as to change my referer header but automating such a thing would make my life easier.

We have two lhasa apsos who refuse to eat dry food so we make something that contains Boneless Chicken Breasts, White Rice, Rice Milk, Eggs, Squash, Carrots, Peas, and I'm pretty sure that's everything. They absolutely love it.

#1629535 Anti-Islam film: Pakistan minister offers bounty

Posted by Cript on 23 September 2012 - 07:30 AM

Our country is about freedom of and freedom from religion. I'm a Christian and accept that others have the right to despise and mock my beliefs. That our government apologized for and denounced this film told me that they're ok with mocking every religion except for Islam which I believe sends a terrible message that we're going to appease one group by not protecting the free speech of another.

The best way I've seen it put - A film mocks Islam for being a peaceful religion whose followers are hateful and kill innocents. Muslims then react by being hateful and killing innocents. Irony much?


#1624704 Democratic National Convention

Posted by Cript on 05 September 2012 - 04:25 AM

It's pretty difficult to choose a date to measure from because when the last US election took place the economy was still in free-fall, it hadn't actually reached the trough yet. You'd have to give a certain period of time for policies to take hold and have an influence on the economy, no policy is going to turn around the economy overnight (unfortunately). :/ Personally, I'd probably put the marker at a year after election so that there's been enough time to see the effect of new policies and you can make a clearer distinction between the two governments.


He made promises to cut the deficit in half and that unemployment would NEVER go above 8% if the stimulus was passed. No one forced him to make those promises so why would you give him a pass?

And just looking at the last 3 years, we've added $5T to nat'l debt with no plan whatsoever to reduce spending. That doesn't scare you? Food stamp enrollment continues to go up...if we're in a recovery, why the hell would that happen?

Perfect example:




#1624697 Democratic National Convention

Posted by Cript on 05 September 2012 - 04:13 AM

The Ryan speech will go down in history as one of the great mysteries of the day. When the truth could have been used, when you could have picked any type of out of context problems as your examples, why make them up. The fact, that President Obama has not used the secret area 51 time machine and gone back to stop a plant from closing that occurred before he was president; dude, we all know how dangerous those time machines can be.



No to mention I might need to sneak back into Canada when we all lose our health care because the Ryan fantasy has never worked, never can work, never will work.


Since I'm not that far from Janesville, I'll be the millionth person to say there were 100 people working in that plant in April of 2009. It was positively not closed.

I didn't watch last night but did they address any of the following?

1. Unemployment is higher than when Obama took office.
2. National Debt is over $6 trillion higher than when Obama took office.
3. Food stamp enrollment has DOUBLED since Obama took office.

These guys can look people in the fact and say that the country is better off than we were 4 years ago?

Weird, I go to the Dr all the time and never have issues. I worked hard, got a job, and have insurance. You and yours want me to work harder so you don't have to?

Hello, I've started to become a bit of a political junkie myself lately.. I was impressed by Ann Romney's speech at the RNC and thought that Michelle Obama couldn't top that. But she did! I thought Michelle Obama gave a really good performance tonight.

I'm Canadian but if I could vote, I'd vote for Obama. The Romney/Ryan ticket is a bit too outdated in terms of social platform to win, but a part of me is worried that their relentless lying attack ads and outspending Obama will actually result in their victory.


Yeah, good thing Obama doesn't lie...can you imagine if he tried convincing people that Ryan's plan affects current seniors or that they'd raise taxes on the middle class or that he hasn't paid taxes, or I don't know, that he was responsible for some dude losing health insurance and his wife dying of cancer? That'd be quite the stretch...errr...wait, no?

Since we're on the topic of lying at the convention:

http://qvga.factchec...from-charlotte/

  • The keynote speaker and others claimed the Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, would raise taxes on the “middle class.” He has promised he won’t. Democrats base their claim on a study that doesn’t necessarily lead to that conclusion.
  • The keynote speaker, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, also said there have been 4.5 million “new jobs” under Obama. The fact is the economy has regained only 4 million of the 4.3 million jobs lost since Obama took office.
  • Castro also insisted Romney and Ryan would “gut” Pell Grants for lower-income college students. Actually, the Ryan budget calls only for “limiting the growth” of spending for the program, and Ryan has said the maximum grant of $5,550 would not be decreased.
  • A Democratic governor said Romney “left his state 47th out of 50 in job growth.” Actually, Massachusetts went from 50th in job creation during Romney’s first year to 28th in his final year.
  • Two advocates of equal-pay legislation said women make 77 cents for every dollar men earn. That’s true on average, but the gap for women doing the same work as men is much less, and not entirely or even mostly the result of job discrimination.
  • A union president accused Romney of seeking “a government bailout” for “his company.” Not really. In fact, Romney negotiated a favorable but routine settlement with bank regulators on behalf of a former company, the one he had left to form his own Bain Capital firm. No taxpayer funds were involved.
  • Multiple speakers repeated a claim that the Ryan/Romney Medicare plan would cost seniors $6,400 a year. That’s a figure that applied to Ryan’s 2011 budget plan, but his current proposal (the one Romney embraces) is far more generous. The Congressional Budget Office says it “may” lead to higher costs for beneficiaries, but it can’t estimate how much.
  • Rep. James Clyburn engaged in partisan myth-making when he said “Democrats created Social Security” while Republicans “cursed the darkness.” History records strong bipartisan support in both House and Senate for the measure President Roosevelt signed in 1935.

My favorite by far is the fact that there are FEWER people employed today then when Obama took office yet his entire party continues to lie about it.


Keynoter’s Jobs Spin


Keynote speaker Castro also put a misleading spin on employment data. He claimed “we’ve seen 4.5 million new jobs” under President Obama. In fact, the nation has regained 4.5 million jobs that had been lost, but employment is still below where it was when the president took office.


Castro: Four years ago, America stood on the brink of a depression. Despite incredible odds and united Republican opposition, our president took action. And now we’ve seen 4.5 million new jobs.


Although he didn’t say so, Castro is referring only to private-sector jobs — which have fared better than government jobs — and he is using February 2010 as the starting point, because that was the low point for private-sector jobs. There were 106,773,000 jobs then, and the number has been rising ever since. In July, there were 111,317,000 private-sector jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s an increase of 4,544,000.

The picture changes dramatically, however, when starting from the beginning of Obama’s presidency. Between January 2009 and the most recently reported figures, there has been a net increase of just 332,000 private-sector jobs.

Moreover, if you include all jobs — including the hard-hit government job sector — there remains a net decrease of 316,000 jobs since the start of Obama’s presidency. Total employment has gained about 4 million since February 2010, not 4.5 million. It’s all in how you slice the data.


No one is offended that these guys decided to use 2/2010 as the starting point for their job numbers instead of using the actual start of Obama's term? No? Kool-aid tastes that good, eh?

#1614804 Here's a list of how to transfer items from shells to your main!

Posted by Cript on 08 August 2012 - 02:24 PM

Definitely a limit to the amount of items you can transfer without getting flagged so I'd personally recommend a tiered shell->semi-main->main approach.
