I was just perusing the Linode forums (a VM/VPS host) and came across this jem.
Truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.
'm not really a C (or related languages) person. Do I have this right?
Yes, you've got it.
If you need me, I'll be busy adding a new field to all of my C structs.
Wow, they restore by... letter? And somehow there's only 26? I guess there's no projects named, say, "1password" on SourceForge, because they'd have to add that fucking 27th character!
There's an interesting write-up about the origins of this sharding-by-letter system: https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/3do9k0/sourceforge_is_down_due_to_storage_problems_no_eta/ct77o49
I wish someone would make a github-like thing for subversion. Just a big, free, public SVN server.
Wikipedia has a list of such things: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_source_code_hosting_facilities#Available_version_control_systems
Or at least a ticket/bug report.
Good idea! I'll just go to their GitHub page and ... oh, they have Issues disabled. Hmm, they use a JIRA instance to track bugs. That's fine. I'll just sign up for an account. Oh, but they have account creation disabled. Mere mortals are only allowed to look at the bug tracker, not actually file bugs. Instead you're supposed to post your bug to a mailing list. And then if somebody decides it is actually a bug and can be bothered they'll open an actual issue in JIRA for you. Assuming they don't just ignore you. Or forget about you.
There are currently two active bugs in that bug tracker for this plugin. There's no significant activity on this plugin's GitHub repo for a year and half. I'm not feeling optimistic.
