Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Yeah I know I’m not the best about this myself but could we please try to keep it on-topic to Song Fight! Live? Thanks.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

If two nights of Songfight Live isn't enough singing, this is my favorite karaoke bar. It's in a Middle Eastern restaurant/hookah lounge/belly dancing place/gay bar in the middle of a trailer park on top of a hill at the edge of town. STOP. THE. PRESSES. I PROBABLY HAVE SEEN YOU BEFORE. Ben used to...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

That all sounds really neat!

Oh yeah, any recommendations about hotels to stay in or avoid? And best ways of getting to the city from the airport? (Lyft? Taxi? Transit? Or should I just rent a dang car?)

Sorry about the outage!

Dreamhost upgraded our Linux version on us, which is nice, but when they did that they forgot to install the mysqli extension, which isn't so nice. Anyway, it's all sorted out now.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Not to break up the talk about where to buy or rent instruments, but I'd personally be more interested in sightseeing things that don't involve feeding my gear acquisition syndrome. :) Any interesting stuff along those lines? I visited years ago and the capitol building was neat, and then there's th...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Yeah the main problem I'm running into is just the takeoff time for whatever flights. I really cannot do ultra-early-morning stuff.

Yeah it mostly comes down to the flight schedule from Seattle.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

I'm not sure which airport I'd be flying in via, because I'm trying to figure out the itinerary which seems the least-heinous to me and my chronic pain disability (both in terms of connections and in terms of time of day for actual travel).

Re: wireless studio technologies?

Pretty much, yeah. There are low-latency bluetooth extensions which are used by some of the most expensive headphones but they require a lot of agreement down the stack and so far as I know it's only really supported by "fashionable" headphones like the AirPods, and not so much used in professonal a...

Re: the Tick - on Amazon

I never got around to watching season 2 but I felt like season 1.5 wrapped things up nicely enough for me, so maybe I won't watch 2 after all.

Re: Constantly logged out

The longer 500 was because I was inspecting the sessions table and the DoS behavior of the bot was causing some massive database contention, or something. I've banned the DoS-y bot and purged the sessions table and everything seems back to normal, so now everyone will have been logged out but hopefu...

Re: Constantly logged out

As far as I know no configuration has changed and I don't see anything particularly weird in the logs. Weirdly, I'm unable to log in to the admin control panel to see if there's anything odd going on with the sessions table. Hmm.

Re: Constantly logged out

All I see is that you have, in fact, gotten some 500 errors. Nothing more interesting than that unfortunately.

Re: Game of Thrones final season dead pool (spoiler alert)

On the HBO-itself side of things, the SVP of Digital Products (i.e. the person who ran HBO Seattle) has now left, as have the last few people who were in the department I was in. I don't think anyone I worked with is there anymore, except maybe one of the engineers who possibly moved to another depa...

Oh, that’s unfortunate.

FWIW if you do decide to upgrade I highly recommend going with Pro if you can. Home has a lot of frustrating problems.

Re: Arché modeling string synthesizer

Oh nice, their tech support got back to me pretty quickly and said the crashing is a known bug and they're going to be releasing a fix for it within the next week. While I had their attention I asked if there was a way to map MIDI controller changes directly to the bow channel, because that's what I...

Re: Arché modeling string synthesizer

I ended up buying it tonight, and holy heck is it crashy. Also it doesn't have any built-in way of mapping the MIDI controllers and expects you to set up a control surface if you don't have the Touché controller. This isn't an auspicious start. :(
