@codemasher out of curiosity, when you have tile issues are you using the subdomains? or just tiles.guildwars2.com?
https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/community/api/Bloodstone-Fen-Tile-Service suggests it might be some weird issue with tiles{n}.guildwars2.com on the EU CloudFront edge servers or something.
I'm really grasping at straws here though since I can't talk to those presumably broken edge servers to see what's up

@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 20:20
wait, there are subdomains? :D
apparently! lol
I'll add them into the example real quick
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 20:21
well, there are some undocumented things that even i don't know XD
well weird; I've got no idea what's up then. That post said switching off subdomains fixed the problem.
I'm really hoping that S3 was just in an inconsistent state (e.g., not fully sync'd to an EU mirror) and the EU edge servers picked up and cached a 404 or something
(if that's the case this invalidation should correct the cache coherency issues)
codemasher @codemasher nods knowingly :D

the subdomains range from 1 - 4 iirc :)

i had used a windows 7 key too many times
had to verify it through the phone last week :P
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 20:59
you can't use it too many times
you just have to activate it by phone
which is harmless
^^

yeah... it's awesome to type 9 blocks of 6 digits, and listen to 8 blocks of 6 digits...
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:00
did that too this week :D
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:00
and i can't even distinguish the number 1 and 2 easily through the phone -.-
bad quality recording

@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:01
Ein oder Zwei? no thanks :P
één en twee is awful enough already
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:02
but it's distinguishable
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:02
but... at least the number was free to call, so there's that
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:03
same here, except you're on a mobile network... like me when i first called
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:03
lol
(btw completely unrelated, is anyone here in EU planning a sab raid? lfg is slow today :()
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:03
they just give you the normal local number which isn't free and hang up :D

i think there was also ahint that it's free when you call from landlines

smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:05
heh
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:05
but i think it isn't free either if you call from mobile
activation was stupid though, i had to disable internet in order to get the option to activate through phone >_>
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:06
huh? works properly each time
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:07
well, it gives me an error otherwise that says i used the key too many times :P
and then i can only close the window
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 21:07
i even managed to install win10 in a vm that way
Archomeda
@Archomeda

you can even break gitter
with empty messages
we need the patch notes bot from reddit here

The Bloodstone Fen Portal Scroll can now only be used by level-80 characters.

aw... i saw a level 1 thief yesterday in BF :D

no raid fixes, so matthias and wing 3 are probably still bugged
teleporting wargs was fun... for about a minute or two
noh, assertion failure on my GW2
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:14
what did you break?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 29 2016 21:14
don't know
Assertion: (m_sphereRadius + TOLERANCE >= m_boxExtent.x) || (m_sphereRadius + TOLERANCE >= m_boxExtent.y) || (m_sphereRadius + TOLERANCE >= m_boxExtent.z) File: ..\..\..\Engine\Gr\GrBound.cpp(94)
something with spheres and boxes I think
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:15
looks like you went out of bounds with something? :P
is this after you loaded in with a character?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 29 2016 21:16
was afking in DR
well good thing it was an assertion, god knows what contract would have been broken otherwise
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:18
jeez, i'm literally looking for a sabetha raid for more than 25 minutes now
there's really no one D:

I had similar issues, was helping people with gorse, took us a while to find two temps and a PS
huhwhat, I still have grub

what are you doing

well, nvm this, i'm gonna do RL
anyone here who plays Rocket League competitively? :D

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:26
gonna throw myself into solo standard and hope that i don't get idiots on my team
Archomeda @Archomeda sighs
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:26
yeah, its bad...
sometimes you dominate when you get great teammates, sometimes you lose 10:0
but its rarely even
played earlier today and got 600 ping ps4 player in 3 games in a row
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:34
wow
lost again
and wtf, again not an even matchup
3 prospect 3s vs 1 prospect 3, 1 prospect 2 and 1 unranked (my team)...
and i'm gonna assume you just added me @darthmaim? :P
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:35
yes :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:36
i'm so hard to find on steam... /s
wth... challenger 3, how do you get out of the prospect hell in solo standard? XD
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:39
well, I used to be rising star and whatever that one above that was called in season 2
really close to get back into rising star again in 2s
currently div5
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:39
omg, i'm not even close
tried to, in season 2, but the matches were so weird
and even more so in this season
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:41
it gets better once you are challenger 2 +
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:43
yeah... not hard to reach that with a party
those win-streaks they've implemented are so weird
win a few matches, you get matched up against better opponents; they destroy you and you just lost all the points you gained from the previous matches
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:44
yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:44
better opponents as in, higher than your actual rank
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:45
but if you win its great to get fast through the lower ranks
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:45
true
sometimes we were up against people that were 1 or 2 ranks above us, and they literally didn't know what they were doing
oh well
so, should i continue my sad life in solo standard or did you want to try 2v2s or 3v3s? :P
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:47
if you want i can help you get out of prospect :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:47
that prospect is only in solo standard XD
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:47
well damn
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:47
i'm challenger 2 in both 2v2 and 3v3
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 29 2016 21:48
we can play some 3s if you want, I'm always playing 2s with the same guy and don't want to have a different mmr as him so we always rank up at the same time
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 29 2016 21:49
sounds reasonable

well, they are cooperating with the canonical (i think) to get a native ubuntu environment in the next win10 update
yay for native terminals

ffmpeg :P?
or did you want a GUI
PiTiVi then

@zeeZ
Jul 29 2016 22:03
does virtualdub do h264?
some google result suggested blender
how to do it commandline on linux
but thats... well... commandline
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 29 2016 22:07
uhh, yeah, i forgot to mention: GUI preferred (i know ffmpeg... :D)

thats boring, Pitivi then

Also as a heads up -- I'm going to be gone next month so if I'm not responsive it's not because I don't love you all
it's because I'm dead/without internet

yeah have fun
blowing two years of saved up PTO so I'd better enjoy it lol
also -- forewarning -- I'm writing the disaster recovery plan for the WvW endpoints (since there's some backend work that may affect them)
the disaster recovery plan is effectively "try to fix it but worst-case disable /v2/wvw/* and message people to use /v1 instead"
I don't anticipate anything going wrong, but y'all know distributed systems :confetti_ball:
@tivac I'll link you the disaster recovery plan as well -- and that particular contingency includes instructions to pay attention to this channel -- but it's helpful if everyone else is also informed
