Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Thanks, Gud! Oh, related to the board -- are we still on Dreamhost?

No. We are on Digital Ocean.

Ah ha -- I am still paying Dreamhost. Will cancel that!

...Actually, would you go in and confirm that's fine? You should have access to the account.

Hi Gud, thanks for the update and for all of your work here. Do you have the ability to threadsuck in the queue for upgrades/updates? Thanks!

I should probably log into Dreamhost and download everything. I can try to do that this weekend.

Threadsuck is in the queue, but with the move and a big project at work, things are moving slow. The number one item is to overhaul authentication to make logging in smoother (I took most of the code from a guide on Rails authentication and it really hasn't worked as well as I'd like). Ideally, I'd go full OAuth2 with Auth0's free plan, but getting that to work with legacy accounts (people on the old board who have never logged into the current board) could be really tricky and I'm not sure how smooth I could make linking up the current accounts. Leaning toward using Spring Security and porting things to Java since that's the stack I'm most experienced with.

Thanks! That makes sense, and I don’t mean to be a pain about it. I just wasn’t sure if it was part of the plan - apologies if you’ve previously answered and I forgot. I forget a lot these days. Thanks for all that you do for the board!

I adore all you motherfuckers so much -- PMM.

Gudanov, whatever you did recently to change the login/cookie retention, it worked. I am no longer having to re-login every second or third time I visit the site.

Thank you, for that and for all the work you do on the site.

I just closed my browser and reopened it, and had to log in again. I don't see that anything changed.
