    It appears that what you were referencing (the KSK rollover) already happened on October 11th: https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/ksk-rollover Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    M.E.O.W. knows exactly what to do with maps! EDIT: Woah, not having the glowy golden background to my posts will take some getting used to. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. Just so people know, I've stepped down from being a mod for the foreseeable future. Don't worry, nothing's wrong, nothing has happened, life in general is pretty awesome; I just have a greater need to focus on my real life responsibilities right now. I'll still be around and posting and willing to help out where I can, I'm just unable to adequately fulfill moderator duties. :) If you have any mod-related questions or concerns, please feel free to contact LadyStorm first, then TaleSpinner, Froggy the Great, or Darsc Zacal; they're all awesome and happy to assist. No replies to this thread are required (I forgot I can't lock threads anymore lol). Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Clearly, due to the absence of @Glitterwolf, nobody was monitoring the Sparkle-o-meter, so it ran out of glitter early. "Management" will do whatever possible to ensure that does not happen again in the future. Such as providing this totally legitimateTM patch for your internets: "Management" thanks you for your patience and cooperation. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    It's...uh... it's a bit late for that. I don't generally have nightmares, though, so there's that. I'm honestly finding the game design highly intriguing. Disturbing as all-get-out, but very cleverly put together. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Apropos of nothing, 2am is TOTALLY the right time to start playing Doki Doki Literature Club. Totally. Yep. ...I'm not going to be sleeping today, am I. (for those of you not familiar with this game...google can explain it far better than I can.) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Somebody-not-me pinned the Randomness thread shortly after it was created. It has remained pinned up until I think a few days ago, when somebody-not-me unpinned it. When a thread gets unpinned I usually assume it was for a good reason and leave it be. Meanwhile: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Woooooooooo! *runs into the thread and does a victory lap* I got MrBoot's computer full functioning again! Once I was able to actually get Windows to load, it only took about 20 minutes to find the video drivers, remove them completely, install the most recent versions (which caused the same issues to reoccur) uninstall them again, then install the previous version. Super easy compared to yesterday! So, it looks like something with the most recent driver update was the root cause of the original problem. Apparently, all MrBoot did to cause stuff to start going wrong was try to update the drivers, which is usually a trivially quick and simple thing to do. I know either my brother or brother-in-law (both programmers) would have probably figured it all out much faster and with far less frustration than I did, but I'm glad I didn't ask in this case. I always feel awesome when I'm able to figure out and solve a gnarly problem on my own. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Very true. I thought I had, but really I didn't do much more than a bit of casual research into how Windows 8 handles boot options before diving in with possible solutions. It's certainly set up differently from Windows 7 (due to the aforementioned change from a BIOS firmware system to a UEFI one), which I'm far more used to, plus it has some wonky things that were fixed in Windows 10. Part of the problem was that I was super tired, and never processed the fact that the "Windows Boot Menu" option that sometimes showed up in the list of boot drives was not a "Return to the boot menu" command, but an actual boot option. Ah well, at least I learned me some computer stuffs, which I'm sure will come in handy again later. ...It occurs to me that I spent rather more time yesterday unironically typing the word 'boot' than is typical for me. Which is saying something. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
