Well, I think this dump was made just before John modernized the site. And after that modernization, it didn’t take very long before as far as I know before things just sort of stopped and John went to do other things. He’s all about climate stuff now.
I think this archive is pretty much all that there is nowadays.

Congrats!December 11, 2016 at 11:31 am in reply to: What's a good laptop to buy?.. #363
I would like to advise you not to limit your choice of laptop simply by looking at whether it has a CD/DVD drive or not. For a small price you can get a separate CD/DVD player/writer that connects over USB, so that ‘limitation’ can be easily overcome. If you limit on this criteria you’re missing out on a lot of laptop choices for no really good reason. I mean, how often do you use CD’s anyways? during installation. Then never again, right?
Minimum cpu: intel core i3. i5 or i7 are better.
memory; if you’re lacking in memory, get an expansion. these are fairly cheap and easy to put in, i can even guide you through it myself. most come with 8gb nowadays anyways.
harddisk: always SSD, don’t get spinning rust, you’ll regret it. i’d personally want a minimum of 256gb in my laptop. if you can’t get a cheap one with 256gb ssd, then get a cheap one with a standard spinning rust harddisk and replace it with a separately purchased 256gb ssd you can buy elsewhere. Should cost around 120 ausd.August 24, 2016 at 7:38 am in reply to: Need Macbookair help #343
They’ll probably put a new keyboard in, since that is likely what is broken.August 23, 2016 at 7:48 pm in reply to: Need Macbookair help #341
Sounds to me like either your keyboard is fucked (shift key broken and continuously pressing down) or that you have MAYBE some ‘accessibility’ feature enabled (although I can’t think of any that does this and it frankly doesn’t make sense).August 9, 2016 at 11:17 am in reply to: USS Enterprise returns to the Smithsonian display #339

I fixed it. It turned out to be the captcha plugin. That damned thing randomly injected ads. It’s gone now.August 11, 2015 at 7:27 am in reply to: Adware question about Sevspace (probably for Dummy?) #275

While many such cleanup programs as the one suggested by a guy on deviantart (what a great source to quote… imagine writing a paper on computer security and quoting ‘a guy on deviantart’ as a source) do help in clearing up the trash such awful programs leave, it’s not a certainty that you’re clean. Best solution indeed is to nuke it.
Macs are different. Their security is different from Windows, much more limited. On Mac I would feel fine running ESET to clean up a minor malware infection. On Windows? Windows lets every piece of shit program in, and once it’s in, it can do anything you can (and more) on the computer. Hard to be sure it’s all fixed then. Total nuke and reinstall is only way to be reasonably sure it’s okay.February 1, 2015 at 8:54 am in reply to: No SmileFiles, I am NOT fucking smiling!!!…! >:+( #208
Re-image the laptop, then install ESET NOD32 Antivirus, a paid antivirus program. When asked enable the ‘block potentially unwanted programs’ option.
AVG has been going down the drain in the past year or so, it really sucks nowadays.January 28, 2015 at 8:20 am in reply to: A new beginning #204
No words were ever used that equate to the meaning implied by the word ‘big’, so I have no idea where you got that from. But from my limited knowledge of astronomical phenomena, yes I do believe that a star is made up of a ball of gas. Usually a few due to fusion in the center.January 24, 2015 at 2:36 pm in reply to: A new beginning #199

Everybody’s a critic.
And I don’t know why editing won’t work on replies. Works on topic. Probably a bug in bbpress, the software I used to slap this thing together. Just be careful what you post 😛
Oh no, you fell for the Frozen thing! You’ve been brainwashed by the little monster in your family.January 9, 2015 at 11:01 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #146
He was a little too kill-happy to me, to be honest. Agent D.. hm. I should know that but I still don’t quite recall. Oh well. Memory goes with age!
Anyways, glad to see there are still some people around that drop in, even if very irregularly, just to keep in touch. We’re already more like 15 years on from when Sev was at its height, and maybe in another 15 years we’ll still drop in occasionally to keep in touch. It’s a small world.January 9, 2015 at 1:13 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #143
I forgot the name of the guy that wanted to kill everyone all the time, all the way on the right. Can anyone remember?January 7, 2015 at 7:49 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #127
I think I’m second from the right, back row. The guy that wouldn’t stop trying to kill people is all the way on the right.January 6, 2015 at 11:04 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #120
Well, did you click the ‘Sev Archive’ link yet? Because that, as far as I know, is the old sev look. Or was there even older? I forget.
I don’t have an older copy than that one, in any case.January 1, 2015 at 7:10 pm in reply to: Happy new year #111
I might take you up on that.
Regarding the name thing – probably OvaFlash.January 1, 2015 at 4:49 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #108

Oh, yeah. It has a rate limiter to prevent disaster when a spambot does make it through the captcha and everything. One post every 100 seconds or so I think the limit is. I guess you were speeding; *gives you a ticket*December 28, 2014 at 4:54 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #85

Hey, looks like you were able to get an avatar in there. Nice picture, Muffin.December 25, 2014 at 4:55 pm in reply to: Refugees gather here! #49
Nah I don’t think I have anything from the ancient SB anymore, sorry.
I do still have a snapshot of Sev from like 2001 or so somewhere online. Perhaps I should put it online for nostalgia, but I dunno if John would be happy about it. I dunno, I never heard anything back from him when I asked about it. I see the site is down too, has been for a long time.
I guess I’ll just put the old thing back online, so we can at least still enjoy the comics. If John ever finds out and complains I’ll take it down.
Oh, I made you a keymaster or whatever in this new forum system so you can bug people and remove forum posts and stuff. The new smart captcha we have in place for user registrations should be enough to keep the spammers out, but you never know.December 25, 2014 at 4:46 pm in reply to: A new beginning #47
Apparently I didn’t check the box for allowing lowly peasant subscribers to get access to the avatar upload function. I have now checked it, so let’s see if it works.
