hazzah! Now the server won't freeze for 30 minutes every time someone replies to it!

I also I think they are locked too quickly.

I've been meaning to ask, what happens when the thread count reaches MAXINT?

If we keep allowing threads to lock, we'll never know.

I've been having problems logging in lately. I think ML is messing with the server to cause threads to lock prematurely.

Most recently (this week) it's been fast again. Like Matthew paid the bill again. That or, his software has some terrible memory leak that explodes over the months and starts slamming virtual memory and thrashing constantly.

I just thought of something stupid, make an Allegro powered website. It manually renders all the HTML/CSS and just sends you a blurry JPEG of the results combined with one of those oldschool JPEG-to-mouseclick HTML with coordinates.

Mayhaps the 500 ISEs are slowing down, but I would hardly call allegro.cc reliable at this point. Up and down like a yo yo.

someone really should start an official discord and post it on the liballeg website in case this place magically disappears one day.

rmbeer hates Discord.

Too bad for him. :P It's the defacto standard for communities now.

I'm a member of servers for modding communities. for games. for friend groups. for programming languages. and more. You use the tools people have. Might as well be against git.

TINS has a discord at least.

Bambams had a discord channel but deleted it. I guess that didn't count as official?

I started a TINS discord server and it's pretty cosy now. I'm also moderator of the Amsterdam Indie GameDev Meetup discord server.

I opened the TINS channel because I wanted to attract new audiences. I know some hate it... but as long as it's optional... Oh you can't please everyone.

I'd be happy to start an Allegro discord server, provided that sufficient people want to join. Again, it may help to attract new audience. And a good fail-safe for allegro.cc.

So, Allegro discord channel, yay or nay?

Allegro discord is fine, but allegro.cc is running out of posting members as it is. Unless it's an official page run by developers I don't think it's worthwhile, unless a.cc completely falls over dead someday. Still holding out for Allegro.cc 3.0 .

APPEND
On the other hand, it's nice to have a mix between a full fledged forum and threads and posts and instant messaging styles like Discord does. I'm all for it amarillion.

Is this a continuation of the "Threads lock too soon..." thread? If not, sorry. :D

I did not get the internal Prime Video transfer so now I'm trying to transfer companies. 😡 (Currently attempting to get a job at Disney, not too worried about the interview process, more along the lines of what kind of pay cut am I going to willing to take...? I make 300k/year right now, roughly, ignoring the stock rollercoaster over the last 6 months. I'm willing to take a 1/3rd pay cut honestly if I can get out of Amazon. I'm negotiating from a strong place. In an ideal world I'll land myself a Senior role at Disney with like 160k/salary/yr and 120-140k/stock/yr, but we'll see.)

I'm working on adding this guy to ItsyRealm:

{"name":"613221","src":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/5\/a\/5a374dfa73d29d21c740274f8ea52714.png","w":2784,"h":1816,"tn":"\/\/djungxnpq2nug.cloudfront.net\/image\/cache\/5\/a\/5a374dfa73d29d21c740274f8ea52714"}613221

(Here's a GIF):

ItsyRealm lore if anyone is interested:

Gammon, the Realm Breaker. Gammon is the patron of mimics like the chest mimics, and It manifested itself as a castle mimic. The idea behind It is Gammon is It was killed by The Empty King (god of humans/fate) in a ritual to banish the Old Ones from the world, and then Its body was used to build The Empty King's "Sistine of the Simulacrum" (place of worship; it's the giant purple-ish clocktower in the fog I've shown before). What remains is mostly bone and Its head. You can see Gammon's carcass later in the game, and it looks kinda cool on the ground (super ominious and stuff).

Discord? REFUSED!!

Discord as I always say is dead, they are only leaving for a blazing publicity all the time.

I already have my social network, although nobody wants to enter it. 😎

I think it could be... it is what we make of it.

Disco died in the late 70's or early 80's IIRC. Then Boy Bands roamed the earth. Dark days indeed.

I'm not sold on this whole new fangled "http" thing! Clearly all Allegro needs is gopher links.
