Just think: if he had actually paid someone to develop and maintain them, he could have made that true!


They cover the current cost of hosting—with as many corners cut as possible—with very little left over for part-time development/maintenance. Jeffrey mentioned it in one of his earlier announcements, but those hosting costs will be increasing as we undo some of the disasters that make up the frightening state of affairs Lowtax let the forums infrastructure (and code) become.

Sounds like you’re just trying to get on that overpriced cookie wagon

This is the kind of question that could have sidetracked six months of Forums development once upon a time as all resources were put towards this project (and of course the result would never be discovered)

Edit: Oops forgot to put this part in

Dumb Sex-Parrot posted:

I recall back in 2005(?) Lowtax was invited to a university to do a talk about running the forums and the internet in general. I think it was a pretty good talk and I watched it on youtube last year when everything went pearshaped. It has aged, of course, but I think its message is still solid as he describes how people with similar interests gravitate to each other, forming echo chambers, and what you can do as a forums owner to prevent them.

I don't know if he was a wife abuser back then. I know he was an rear end in a top hat, but he was our rear end in a top hat.
That was at the University of Illinois, and I am not necessarily ashamed of how excited I was to attend, since at the time I think even the blowup with """crazy""" Integral had not happened yet to start the red flag parade, but even though it is indeed a fairly interesting talk all things considered, oddly it is not nearly as fun to watch now. I did laugh about how I had no idea what Gaia Online was in 2005, though, reminding me that there was a time before you became aware of nearly all other popular Internet things through osmosis

Goodbye Lowtax, I will always have to wrestle with the reality that I thought you were cool like 15 years ago.

Incredibly excited for the new account re-reg, whenever that comes.

I don't think Lowtax has ten bucks to spare nowadays.

Yes. Wasn't my intention to advertise or anything but if anyone wants a nostalgia trip this ain't bad: https://www.youtube.com/TylerKMusic

I don't monetize that channel. Feel free to rip it and do whatever with the tunes. Just a mausoleum of dumb poo poo I made of the dumb poo poo I made for the forums back in the day. I literally give no poo poo. I've toyed with the idea of making a new EP of the bloopity bloop stuff during the pandemic but turns out I'd rather be depressed and drink a lot. So there.

Don't worry dude, I remembered your name because I ripped the music from that one flash I mentioned and it's still in my playlist 15 odd years later. Liked it back then, still like it!
I'll check out your other stuff, I'm sure it's not dumb poo poo.
