  1. Usually the case, prices drop until it becomes obsolete then after a couple of years when stocks have dried up the price can rise. That RD-Ram might now fall into this category if its the one I'm thinking of, where you needed a 'blank' if you did not have a mirrored pair. Its not that long ago (well it was really I suppose) I was paying £1 or £2 per MB (yes megabyte) for PC-66 sticks... :D
  2. 😄 , I just put in the "as you know" after I saw your reg date so figured there was no need/point to go into specifics or a screenshot of that section. 🙂 Oh OK. 🙂 I can understand that. It did look not far off from how its done in "other software" back then, in particular the one you mention and that version, it looks very similar. 'Folders' of images in effect for the end user to pick from. I do think this would likely be a lot more suitable for a third party application though somehow. Might even be a small $ / € / £ (pick your currency as appropriate or otherwise) in it if there's sufficient demand for said application. Maybe ? 🙂
  3. I have had this at least once, a few years back when trying to find suitable server ram (ECC stuff) , cut a long story short I did end up eventually hunting down some listed ram which worked properly rather than the usual "compatible with" used stuff found elsewhere.
  4. There is that, although I thought in a way it was in the past as most would prefer to choose their own. IPB2x as you know had built in galleries for them, I just mention this last point given your reg date 🙂 I know you've been here erm "a while" much like me! 😄 Having said that, I just looked at the highest content contribution from my membership. The top five here (including me) only two others have uploaded an image of their own. Looking generally it seems to be roughly about 50/50 on if they have added their own or not. I do have a non-standard 'by default' one though. I'm not on the latest version but I won't go into why here as its off topic and the answer is not what you'd expect. 🙂 EDIT... Perhaps the solution here is for a third party developer to recreate / create some kind of 'Gallery Profile Images' (avatars) for members to pick from for those who require such functionality on later versions.
  5. 34x had an option to just show or hide them , nothing more than that a simple yes/no binary choice. Previous versions I think just had an option to remove it from the jumplist dropdown rather than a depth setting, but I obviously don't have access (and can't remember for sure that far back, it was years ago to be fair) the exact specific details. Point here being some form of 'control' for this in IPS4 would be an excellent idea / feedback hence my reply. :)
  6. I'd like to see the return of the option to display them or not on the forum index or perhaps even better some numerical input where you could specify the depth (for want of a better word) to show, such as 1 , 2 or 3 perhaps. By that I mean if you have subforums within subforums how "far down" to show. :)
    Another excellent idea from the author. This really is something that should be built in I think or perhaps an option offered for it at least. 🙂 Does what it "says on the tin" so to speak.
  7. The above used to be the case where there was a separate checkbox for upload and download for each group. This is from the last of the 3x series, 349: I can see why it was removed however it did have some merit. I can tell you one quite common source of confusion for new admins (I used to see it a fair bit in the Peer to Peer support forums) was the fact that uploaded images are attachments and if you disable 'download' for an attached image you are in effect saying "can view it" (or not) , there was actually a third party tweak at the time to exempt images from this behaviour, I remember using it so they could be viewed but files could not be downloaded, useful for guests actually.
  8. All the 2.0.x series have that coloured sidebar. It went awol at 2.1.x although the main 'panel' area gained a bit more colour, increased a bit more with sensible warnings/hints etc with the later 2.2. and then the 2.3.x series. All the 2.x series had a scrollbar unless you had a mass screen resolution (at that time when I think 1024x768 was normal and 1280x1024 for those with a slightly bigger wallet for a monitor perhaps) :) Not sure really what you mean by "changed much" , unless I answered to your satisfaction in my two sentences above. 😀
  9. It might be considered a specialist request I guess, possibly like Fortran or something ? I've not really looked tbh. Having said that there could possibly be some kind of CKE plugin to assist with it, it would be worth a minute of your time to check to see. I have odd display issues if I try to post assembly language in code tags but I kind of consider it expected behaviour. EDIT... A small piece of code, the kind I usually deal with: 36904 LD A,(33799) ; 33799 = The current cavern number (0 to 19) 36907 INC A ; Increase that value 36908 CP 20 ; Is it now 20 ? If so that means (19+1=20) the last cavern completed was The Final Barrier! 36910 JR NZ,37009 ; Jump if it was not Final Barrier 36912 LD A,(33882) ; 33882 = Game mode indicator (0 for live play, other values = demo mode) 36915 OR A ; So are we in Demo Mode ? 36916 JP NZ,37008 ; Jump if we are in Demo Mode 36919 LD A,(33885) ; 33885 = Holds the teleport code if its been activated 36922 CP 7 ; So is the teleport active ? 36924 JR Z,37008 ; Jump if it is as we were cheating!
  10. The .zips are still alive in my initial posts. The splash of colour in the ACP , I mean simply this in the sidebar area:
  11. Got to say I did like the extra splashes of colour in the 2.0.x ACP , something that went away (a bit anyway) in 2.1 although iirc the side menu options for each 'section' were much improved from 2.0 to 2.1 from a 'human navigation' point of view. I can't remember the reason for the colour reduction although I do recall it was a logical decision. :)
  12. That's not actually unexpected given its a browser concern (at least as I see it, and its not my area) but the point was if in any doubt there was (as I indicated) no harm at all in asking in a ticket at least. You may not be out of luck though. It would be very worthwhile in posting the question in the Peer-to-Peer area of the forum to see if others have ideas or thoughts to assist with this. I do think (again, not my area) this is not a common concern generally though.
  13. I could be wrong (I do see what you're saying though) in that if the 'effects' are being caused by browser plugins the scope for support to assist with this is slightly limited as its an 'external factor' (for want of a better phrase) . However there is absolutely no harm at all in sending in a support ticket to enquire about this, something I would probably recommend in this case so a tech can take a look and inform you. :)
  14. 🙂 Would be good to see what you come up with, if/when there's time for an entry on "A look back" as such.
