Re: SUGGESTION BOX (for Admin action)

Hi all, At this juncture, we find ourselves in the unfortunate situation where the only person with technical expertise who has access and is regularly available to administer the back end of this forum is none other than yours truly. I assure you, this is not a position that any of us should be com...

The forum's SSL changes over the last week seem to have broken its Mint page: Mint was unable to connect to the database. Please make sure that the correct values have been added to /config/db.php.

Re: Elon Musk, SpaceX and PayPal

There are other even more futuristic ideas. Like there is no real need for stoplights with automated cars. In fact there isn't even a reason to slow down going into intersections as the computer can time them like a mesh of cars. This reminded my of something I saw years ago that I found intriguing...

Re: SUGGESTION BOX (for Admin action)

I can't speak to phpBB specifically, but if it doesn't support listening on multiple ports using multiple protocols (i.e. non-SSL on 80, SSL on 443), it should still be possible to add a reverse proxy server like NGINX to achieve this. https://www.nginx.com/resources/glossary/reverse-proxy-server/ T...

Re: SUGGESTION BOX (for Admin action)

I find the resistance to SSL encryption interesting and not without merit. That being said, there's no reason why the site couldn't provide both options simultaneously: Unencrypted access to the forum could be hosted on port 80 at http://cluesforum.info Encrypted access to the forum could be hosted ...

Re: THE "CHATBOX"

As an information security professional, I am happy to help Simon obtain and install a new SSL certificate. It shouldn't be that difficult. Please feel free to contact me via PM or at pianoracer AT gmail DOT com. Ideally we'd want to set it up so that the certificates are automatically renewed when ...

Re: THE DERAILING ROOM

The language used in this thread, by such otherwise wise and perceptive folks, saddens me. You all are sounding like the silly headlines in the newspapers or reported on the tell-lie-vision - "United States to Iran: Drop Dead!" - you do understand that "countries" are arbitrary geographic areas and ...

Re: Simon in the USA — Summer 2018

If you read "unshakable beleif" in what I write then you are misinterpreting and I might have expressed myself unclear. Apologies, Patrix, that term was perhaps uncalled for. It is the impression that I have gotten from you over the last year or so - I sincerely hope that any conclusion that you ha...

Re: Simon in the USA — Summer 2018

Hi Patrix, You didn't really answer any of my questions, so here they are again: [The idea that stars are distant suns is] based on what evidence? [The idea that the Earth rotates is supported by] which experiments? Any that you have performed yourself? I read a dozen or so pages from the book that ...

Re: Simon in the USA — Summer 2018

I find it evident that stars are distant suns Based on what evidence? Even the mainstream - and Mr. Brahe himself - seem to acknowledge that there are issues with the "stars are distant suns" theory: https://imgur.com/download/jXosgtt https://physics.ucf.edu/~britt/Geophysics/Readings/R2The%20case%...

Re: Simon in the USA — Summer 2018

Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur. I’m not sure why anyone expected anything different. Kent Hovind has many videos where he goes and gives presentations at universities, some quite prestigious, and after demolishing the “science” of evolution the reaction is largely the same as you describe (imma...
