Daily Dragon Fix

Recommended Posts

There is now a very basic Fire Gem 'Clock' page:

https://leviathan.thorngale.net/fire-gem-colour.php

 

It doesn't do much - it just shows you what's dropping now, and the next colours that will drop, in order. I'm the kind of goofball that needs a page like that, so I figured I'd make it available for everyone.

 

Shokomon has kindly let me use the lovely icons made for the fire gem cycler again. ❤️

There is now a basic Solstice helper page (late for this year, but I suppose better late than never):

https://leviathan.thorngale.net/solstice-colour.php

 

We now have enough variant tools that I've created an overview page here:

https://leviathan.thorngale.net/dragon-tools.php

 

Edit: And here's a cycler:

Hey @pinkgothic, may I ask what filling the TMPB does? XD I can't seem to fill it up even a quarter of the way through.

XD I mean, if I explained it, it wouldn't be very mysterious, would it? I can divulge that theories have been proposed, though, and some people have discussed when it resets. I wouldn't know anything about that, though. *nods sagely, as if there were any mystery left about it at all*

New cycler, courtesy of Shokomon kicking my ass to make one (much as I word it snarkily, thanks Shokomon!):

Product of the same PM conversation, there's also a dynamic Lumina Calendar. Note that the calendar sneakily assumes that the percentages are continuous (i.e. change even over the course of the day), which is my theory only, it's not been tested. I've put a disclaimer on the page about that, but I figured I'd mention it from the get-go. ^_^

Oh, thank you for that! I have been hoping someone would do that. :wub:

Since the Dragon Cave IRC's gone away, just in case there's anyone else out there who strongly prefers IRC over Discord, you're welcome to join #dataclaw on irc.darkmyst.org for chatting. I won't likely ever make it mandatory, but I recommend you connect using TLS (SSH) on port 6697.*

 

#dataclaw is a channel primarily for non-Dragon-Cave topics (most notably, it's the OOC channel of the IRC roleplay Tarnish), but frequented by some Dragon Cave players already. Even in times when no DC players are online, you'd still be very welcome. :)

 

Note: IRC Cloud connections will not work - I've chosen to disallow those, since the permanent centralised logging IRC Cloud does may be what people's problems are with Discord, if they're considering alternatives. You're of course free to use literally any other IRC client (web or otherwise). ❤️ (You're also welcome to argue with me about this, of course.)

 

* Let me know if you need help with that, given your IRC client of choice. For mIRC, you can connect using TLS if you supply +6697 as a port (the plus is important, that's what tells mIRC to use TLS).

 

[ Edit: I finally managed to get my more active general purpose channel cleared of IRC Cloud, so I no longer need a dedicated channel for DDF purposes. ]

Thank you for running this site! The care to maintain a unique fan site for the benefit of all of us and our dragons is very evident and I appreciate it every day I come to click. :)

You're very welcome! The brunt of the work was done by @emmilely, though, I just maintain and tweak it. ❤️ Thanks for reaching out with those kind words! I appreciate it.

I'm having problems with the "import all" option. When I click on that it just goes to a blank white page. I can still add eggs individually and otherwise everything on the site seems to be working okay for me.

On it! Thanks for the report.

...okay, that was really strange. A file had completely disappeared (rather, almost surely a whole mini-framework in a system location I rarely use in any of my projects, actually, since my local backup copy of DDF doesn't have the file by its lonesome, either). I wonder if this is related to the maintenance Linode did the other day, given that's the only thing that changed in the past weeks. o_O Anyway, sorry about that - would have been preventable if I'd copied the file in question into the project folder!

 

Try now, @purplehaze!

 

Edit: Okay what. This actually started happening between 06:43 UTC and 07:13 UTC last night. I'm going to dig into the audit logs, see if I find anything. o_O (I do have some co-admins doing non-DDF things on the machine, maybe one of them making a sleep-addled mistake is all that's happened.)

It seems to be working fine, now! Thanks for the quick response. :)  Good luck finding what went wrong.

Glad it works again! Sorry about the mess in the first place.

 

If you're curious, I managed to rule out that it was a co-admin, or indeed anyone logged into the machine. Nothing in process accounting looks suspicious, everything seems to be set to its normal permissions and access rights, so I'm very sure this wasn't some compromise. That leaves automated processes - but I've no clue what automated process might have clobbered this, unfortunately, which is really frustrating! I first suspected unattended system upgrades (which are usually safe to run, and keep the machine patched up with security updates, but mistakes happen), buuuut they ran about three hours later, so I'm at a loss. ಠ_ಠ Very unsatisfying "conclusion", but I'm sure if I try to dig any deeper I'll just waste more time at this point.

 

v_v Anyway, should it ever happen again, give me a shout! ❤️
