  1. Sorry about that! I upgraded a few things on the back-end last week and apparently this value reset. Max upload is now 200MB.
  2. We use a combination of five different advertising platforms to generate revenue for the site. I do not allow pop-up/pop-under ads or ads with audio on ANY platform. I hate ads but unfortunately they are necessary to sustain the site financially. Unfortunately it is next to impossible to figure out which platform is allowing the pop-up ads or the ads with audio. I can take a wild guess though, which I just did. I've paused the ads from the newest partner so PLEASE send me a private message if you continue to have pop-up ads or ads with audio. I do not and never will allow them on this site and I sincerely apologize for their appearance as of late, it was never my intention. Sorry @UTgrad09, I thought I replied to the post about this in the mod forum.
  3. I switched our photo/video storage system over to Amazon S3 overnight and it looks like the max upload size was changed to a really low value. I just fixed it so you should be okay now. Shoot me a PM if it still doesn't let you upload what you need. Thanks!
  4. I am, but the reality is that you can only download as fast as the other end can upload, and that is almost always throttled. A 1 gbit connection doesn't get you much for home outside of notoriety and seriously not having any issues whatsoever in being able to stream your favorite content in whatever quality you want to for however many people you can fit in your house. The latency though, that is something else! With that you have an edge against your online opponent in a game and have absolute confidence in your home VoIP system. The latency is far more impressive to me than the speed. We pay several thousand at work for our gbit connection and still can't get a latency that low.
  5. ^ That latency! Wowsers! I had Windstream install a 1 gbit fiber line at my day job a couple of years ago and with the overhead we get about what you're getting, but our latency is ~5 ms. I'm amazed at the latency you posted.
  6. Trying to avoid any suspension acts here...so listen up. I've read through this page and I see no statements from scgrubers that would indicate a blatant racist view as mallguy has reported. As a result, let's back off of placing words in the mouths of others. This is a high tension time, particularly with the election tomorrow. Many are reading words that aren't there and hearing things being said where words were never uttered. This isn't just the case for this particular thread (and the handful of posts above), but for our nation as a whole. Having said that, this site does not allow for racism and other acts of hate. I have yet to read a post where this happened however. If one can be provided that goes beyond personal assumptions and interpretations then we'll talk. Otherwise please stick to the topic and have a civil discussion. Mallguy, you are welcome to remove yourself from the thread and even add another user to your ignore list so that his or her posts never show up on the site for you.
  7. I just suspended one user, anyone else want to join him? Play nice or exit right.
  8. It is a wonderful looking terminal with baggage claim and all! I'm not too keen on Allegiant but it is good for Concord and doesn't really compete with CLT. Direct flights to MSY (New Orleans) start soon which is the first major airport that they will have a route to. I'm certain that the new terminal will make it much easier to make deals with other low-cost carriers interested in flying to the Charlotte area.
  9. For Members (Members being the group where you have between 10 and 100 posts) the limitation was 50 MB. I just changed that to 250 MB after seeing this post. We have better cameras with higher resolutions now so it should be changed to keep up with technology. I'll adjust the back-end to handle the larger space requirements. Note that Members+ (users with 100+ posts) and Supporting Members (those who contribute a small monetary thumbs up to help keep the site running regardless of post count) have unlimited space. Having said that, you should be able to upload photos again since you now have 5x the space available.
  10. Now that I've hidden a bunch of crap, can we please get back to being on-topic? For those that have no idea what this thread is about, it is entitled "The Good News Report." I would have thought that the subject of this thread would have been obvious to everyone, but apparently I have been mistaken. My five year old that just started kindergarten knows better than to take things this far and so off-topic. Clean up or get out.
  11. I'm glad to hear that resolved the issue. Thanks!
  12. That definitely shouldn't be happening. Have you tried clearing your browser's cache? What happens if you use Chrome's incognito (private browsing) mode?
  13. I haven't seen this myself and you're the first to mention of the issue. What browser and version are you using? Can you possibly take a screenshot of an example? No changes have been made recently, particularly ones that would cause what you describe to happen.
  14. Neo, it appears that Piedmont is at war against me. Today he responded on the "Good News" thread about my article on school pay raises. It was uncalled for. I broke no rules and did not deserve his hostile response. I praised the Senate for presenting such a much needed bill raising the pay for teachers now and for the next two years more than it has been raised in ages. I mentioned how bad the situation was previously when I moved here and wanted to continue my teaching career but there were no jobs.

     

     Please tell Piedmont to ignore me or to not respond to my messages. I will abide by the rules of the board. He should be required to do the same. I am not a Republican as he obviously assumes and certainly not anti-LGBT even if we have different views on bathroom use. I am certain that I would be banned if I made a comment like his. Thanks for your attention.

      Neo, I just went through and couldn't find the posting from Piedmont for which I was referring. It may have been deleted, but I will refrain from disagreeing with the "clique" I have been warned of. If it happens again, I will note time, date, etc.  I really do appreciate you're response. I will certainly attempt to not insult or offend anyone. I hope some day I can get the same. Later from some of them.

      The Civil Rights thread has really brought out some harsh opinions from folks. Not many issues have such noticeable divisions. Hopefully the issue will be dealt with once and for all in the near future and we can all move on. :tw_grin:

      You are right. Some don't realize that I have no issues with the LGBT. I simply feel that things concerning bathroom use have been fine without issues. I don't believe in discrimination, and I haven't seen where there has been in that regard. Most of the people I know agree that they have no clue if a trans has been using he same restroom already. It they have, it has not been a problem. It is too bad we have struck such a blow nationally. Oh well, I guess I will leave the issue as is. Take care. I only wish that some would accept the fact that all people don't agree and that doesn't always mean "hate" or "intolerance."

       

  15. I'd say most of us are actually waiting for good news.
