[00:44:33] <Lucifer_arma> well, it's below freezing, and my scooter was covered by a thin layer of ice
[00:44:58] <Lucifer_arma> this is probably the closest to ice weather that I can ride in safely, since the ground hasn't frozen yet, there was still liquid water on the road
[00:45:35] <Lucifer_arma> but it would have been nice not to have to break my scooter free of its icy protective shield

[12:31:14] <guru3> if FRAGILE shows up again, he's reigstered on the forums with slitebeats at gmail dot com
[12:35:26] <guru3> holy shit, 300 spam accounts since sunday
[17:55:05] <guru3> 12000+ accounts with 0 posts
[18:04:30] <guru3> any suggestions for dealing with them? I'd be happy to bulk delete, but authority... :/
[18:08:25] <Lucifer_arma> first: modify the authority to log the users that login using it
[18:08:46] <Lucifer_arma> second: delete only the ones that don't login with the authority
[18:09:01] <Lucifer_arma> actually, that's still not going to work, because you'll delete accounts tht people use only to read the forums
[18:09:22] <Lucifer_arma> does phpbb store a record indicating when we've denied posts because they were spam?
[18:10:05] <Lucifer_arma> also: guru3: any chance we can get the forums to automatically update the themes from the repository?
[18:10:58] <guru3> no record on spam posts it seems
[18:11:12] <guru3> it'd be technically possible to update themes from the repo
[18:11:19] <guru3> but it feels risky in case something goes wrong
[18:33:52] <Lucifer_arma> yeah, I keep getting a little hung up on that
[18:34:08] <Lucifer_arma> there isn't a way around simply telling people not to push a non-working theme
[18:34:33] <Lucifer_arma> I guess we could tag it when we have a stable theme, and the updater could just pull the most recent tag
[18:35:07] <Lucifer_arma> but we also need a way for anybody who has access to the repo to be able to update the theme, and that seems the easiest/probably more secure option
[18:37:20] <guru3> I don't think there's particularly a big rush to get a theme updated that it couldn't wait for me to read a message and get a moment to update it
[18:58:35] <guru3> re extra accounts, for the moment accounts with no posts and the last login more than 10 years ago will be deleted
[19:45:07] <Lucifer_arma> am I hot enough coming out of the shower that I can go outside without a jacket?  It's like 39 degrees outside
[19:46:12] <Lucifer_arma> guru3: actually, the issue I'm mostly concerned about is when we inevitably screw up a theme, update it without noticing the screwup, and then when the screwup is noticed, neither you nor I are available to fix it
[19:46:28] <Lucifer_arma> but someone like Armanelgtron is, but he (nor I) can't update the forums
[19:47:36] <Lucifer_arma> I am going to write a general-purpose updating script for the wiki, forums, and main site, at some point, but that's mostly for the main site
[19:48:00] <Lucifer_arma> my long term plan to get the main site easily updatable is by working through such a script pulling from the bzr repo that contains the site
[21:43:21] *** Quits: Z-Man (~Z-Man@2002:4fe3:efd3:0:a18b:e8f3:aab7:84a5) (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)

[22:13:39] <Lucifer_arma> it is fucking cold outside :/
[22:14:05] <Lucifer_arma> one of my heated gloves wouldn't stay on, so at least I got to compare my hands with one heated glove working and one not
