lol, so it actually exists

hmm, we might actually want to backup all forum threads that are linked to from the github issues as well
since @lye links to the forum occasionally
dang
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2017 15:45
e.g. #228

hmm, i wonder if @darthmaim's backup already gets all of them because you posted in the linked threads
unrelated, but i've backed up arenanet's soundcloud tracks because of the impending doom soundcloud is facing :P
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 16:24
anet might want to put these on YT
soundcloud is shutting down?
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 16:24
dunno, maybe on a seperate channel
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2017 16:25
but you can download the original files on soundcloud, youtube doesn't have that :(
well, they were struggling a month ago
also, i've found a way to use the soundcloud api without having to register for it that's even impossible right now
it seems their own website uses the api too

that sounds like a good design choice
why write something twice
now they need to implement access management
I am reading a paper on high level architecture
some weird defense standard to synchronize simulators
but as always, I have found an elephant in the room, that is explicitly not discussed by such a paper
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:08
also; no PoF patch
is that really going to be released friday, that kinda makes no sense
good way to kill your asset servers :P
asset servers are mostly just cloudfront
so good luck killing aws
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:12
right, not going to happen
well, if only a GW2 expac could crash AWS right ;)
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:12
in my experience with amazon
the most likely candidate to kill AWS is amazon

@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:14
maybe I wanted to find an excuse for anet to distribute the dat early
i don't think the final live build happens until wednesday/thursday
so we don't have anything to distribute early yet ;3
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:17
oh that must be kinda stressful
I remember having to hand in stuff
and it breaking like 5 minutes before
but then again, I am not a large company with solid release plans
dunno, I expected you guys to "have gone gold" a few weeks prior so that QA could do one last pass over it. But then again, we don't live in a world anymore where games have to be put on practically-irrevocable cartridges
we did that
there will always be more bugs
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:21
yeah and distribution of your final build is so fast that you can keep fixing them till one day prior :)
I don't work release management so I don't know what's going on with the game bits
but I would guess it's just pri 1/sev A bugs being accepted right now
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:23
Are the game devs gonna be, like, on-call all weekend?
more than that -- there's going to be a lot of people in the office all weekend
anyone who's not in the office is on call
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:24
anet at defcon 2
pretty much
my guys have it easy since we already shipped all of our stuff
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:25
ops on two different locations, in case of zombie apocalypse?
nope
if there's a freak blizzard you're outta luck
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:26
blizzard is in Irvine, probably safe with that
blizzard is normally in irvine, which would make it a freak blizzard if they suddenly showed up here
and, say, cut power and sealed the building with ice
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:27
can imagine a small player like anet being engulfed in a sudden appearance of blizzard
completely zerging
we'd probably all go down to the pub and have a few beers
it'd be a disaster
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:28
or one of the 6000 starbucks
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:28
well for the PoF release that kinda would be :P
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:29
I still distinctly remember the moment I was walking through downtown seattle
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:29
that still amazes me in the states, having a starbucks/mcdonalds/... around the corner
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:29
and saw 2 starbucks within eyesight of each other a block apart
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:29
like you dont have to walk a mile to find another one

yeah, I dont get how thats economically viable
we support local businesses
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:31
I mean starbucks HQ is in sodo
so it's..technically local?
the best kind of local

I hate netflix for removing futurama
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:32
may your fourth wind be soon and everlasting
and forcing DRM through W3C
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:32
on youtube search futurama 24/7
haha
thank me later
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:32
I've noticed those streams
why bother when there's rick and morty 24/7
Werdes
@werdes
Sep 19 2017 17:32
it's back to pirating then
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:32
I don't get how they're allowed
they're not
enforcement is hard
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:33
@lye I'll back that
Werdes
@werdes
Sep 19 2017 17:33
oh jeez, i still have to watch latest episode
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:33
is that why there's 20 of them? XD
Pirate Bay logic. Take one down, 5 pop up.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:33
from what I understand, the google automatic triggers only applies when the stream is done
heh
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:33
so unless they're reported, they won't be taken down
Werdes
@werdes
Sep 19 2017 17:33
@Coffee4cr that's some weak spot in their mechanism
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:33
it's like streaming with music playing
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 19 2017 17:33
that's the whole reason they do 24/7 XD
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:33
the warning comes after it's done
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:34
fun fact, the only overseas place that starbucks produces coffeebeans at is in The Netherlands
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2017 17:34
Like i'm not 100% sure of what i'm saying, but i'm pretty sure i'm right
now I want to go watch futurama
damnit
but before, it's binging with babish
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 19 2017 17:59
I am not guild wars broke before this expac
what is this
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 19 2017 19:06

hmm, i wonder if @darthmaim's backup already gets all of them because you posted in the linked threads

I've backed up everything in API Development @Archomeda

so should be all there
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2017 20:14
oh... everything
cool
