Update, 2020/12/01
Please see announcement in Forum Stuff for details.

Today, 2020/11/18, suspicions have been expressed that there has been a data breach.
At least some DisMembers' login data may have been compromised.
While the facts behind those suspicions have not yet been established, your Administerrerr is treating them as credible. He is looking into this. He will try and beef up security.
Even if you did so only recently:
Please change your password!
Please click here, or use the menu ( button) to navigate to the the User Control Panel, therein to the Profile Tab, and there click Edit Account Settings. You should get it from there on.
For a safe password that will resist brute-force attempts (which we have been subject to in the past), please use upper and lower case letters, AND numerals, AND symbols, and make it as long as you feel feasible. 16 characters seems to be recommended these days.
DO NOT use a password you also use elsewhere.
While your Administerrerr tries to keep this place safe. Get real. Security here is mostly by obscurity, that is, no one serious enough to crack us like a rotten egg is likely to even bother. But if one does, you don't want the safety of your email of facebook or whatever to depend on one mostly blind, mostly clueless autodidact who can't work at this more than a few hours at a time, if that much.

If you used a password here that you also used elsewhere, you must set a new password there, also!
A different password, this time. If someone did breach us, the first thing they are likely to do with your login credentials is to try them out elsewhere. Login credentials compromised here are compromised everywhere else, also. If you did reuse a password, but with a different email, your administerrerrerr strongly urges you NOT rely on that different email keeping you safe. This whole thing runs on a database. That means your half-blind administerrerrerr can operate a database. Do you honestly think identity thieves, and those who sell them passwords by the ten-thousands, won't?
If you get an error message about an invalid form, click here.
Every form you can debauch is on a time limit. Even if you feel you've been reasonably quick, some browsers seem to think otherwise.
Recommendation: type your password in something like a text editor or word processor, highlight (making sure not to highlight any leading or trailing spaces), copy, then reload the account settings page, paste, paste, debauch, and be all quick about it. Like Dan said, back in the when. Be like the housefly, and see the events of the world unfold in liquid slowness, or something to that effect.
If you cannot reset a forgotten password, click here.
The "I forgot my password" function has been buggy for a while, I apologize. I will look into that, also, over the next few days.
UPDATE: I have looked into this. I think it should work now, but I can't test it all with my admin accounts. Anyone who tries it, please do let me know whether it works or not.
You yourself, meanwhile, might look into your SPAM folder. I know, I know, but humor me, please.
Also, if you have been around for a bit, try and remember whether the email you entered there was also the email you registered with back in the when. I'm sure the email addresses associated to some user-accounts are still hotmail.
If none of that solves your confound, hit me through the contact form, or grab me via dm on the Facebooks, or if none of that works, speak up in the Midget Circus. I will look out for you there, but I can't guarantee nothing.

ASMR - the ootmik selection, best of!

Post by DerGolgo » Mon Apr 27, 2020 1:51 pm

Is it just me, or is ASMR dripping of the everywhere on the everything, anywher between anywhen and anyrecently?

Well, I don't think it's for me. The jet-engine noises my desktop makes are quite sufficient. I consider it digital snoring, and I really can't point fingers - at Doom '14, I had managed to convince my roomy at the Cross Keys to find someone else to bunk with.

However. Maybe it's just that the mere thought of what 2020 might yet shit on us is keeping a lot of people awake, causing a spike in ASMR searches etc., which translates into a recommendation.

Besides maybe the gruff growl of a Ducati twin, or the howl of a CBX-1000 (which, I only realized now, kinda sounds like a never ending zipper getting pulled down, doesn't it?), besides the soul food that is the dripping noise of a coffee maker, or the sliding and very timidly gurgling of the plunger on a french press being pushed down, besides the noise of shears defeating bones and the agonizing cries of whatever noob just joined there.

Besides any of those.
I think most people can agree that for this place, and this crowd, this is it.

If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

I said I have a big stick.

I've been listening to these almost daily:

I'd love to fall asleep listening to them but I've got kiddos that I need to listen for.; so I listen while working.
