>transparency of where funds are going
We're looking at anywhere from 20-40% reinvestment into the site. In USD our per month upgrade in server spending will be from 3.95 * 2 to 10.00 consolidating our two servers into one big one. Kissu doesn't require funds for services such as backups or CDN since I provide my own hardware and software or use free services.

This means that funding beyond this level(currently 6.00 - 17.00) will have to be put back into it in some meaningful way. This reinvestment plan should begin this month in some form as either stockpiling for later or using outright. Possibly as upgrades to our graphics removing our font-awesome effects for designs or gifting games to community members. Anything to make Kissu a more enjoyable place.

This remainder 60-80% (currently 50.00 - 67.00) going to me pays my internet bill and food. If I don't eat I will die. If I have no internet I can't post.

Hey that's more than I thought.







I lost the SQL to do it. Ask me again if you want me to remake it so it gives a full site count.

mysql> select count(*) from posts_qa where wl_token="
| count(*) |
|      270 |
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

mysql> select count(*) from posts_jp where wl_token="

you can do the query using php like this:

function calcToken($wl_token){
$boards = listBoards();
$query = 'SELECT SUM(`top`) FROM (';
       foreach ($boards as &$_board) {
         $query .= sprintf("SELECT COUNT(ip) AS `top` FROM ``posts_%s`` WHERE `wl_token` = '%s' UNION ALL ", $_board['uri'], $wl_token);
       $query = preg_replace('/UNION ALL $/', ') AS `posts_all`', $query);
       $query = query($query) or error(db_error());
       return (int)$total = number_format($query->fetchColumn());

Can't confirm anything. I told everyone to stop keeping track of posts per __ but I made a stats page so that people with mod privileges would stop counting each recent post to tell me how fast the site was doing compared to others and instead spend that time on something else.
The site's doing 145km/hr right now if you care. People shouldn't since it doesn't mean anything about the success or failures of a website, only an indication of a snapshot of time.

This is the next iteration of Kissu's feedback discussion AKA devblog. Though there's not much in the way of dev there are still bugs to fix. This iteration will hopefully focus on admin-blogging or tool development.

Important Note: If you want a new software feature (or a really any sort of change) provide me with a detailed proposal. It must be at least 3 sentences long and tell me why it's needed.

Kissu's features are in a good place. There's no reason to rewrite anything, only improve and fix. On the outside, this is a unique site with an appearance you won't find anywhere else yet still your typical imageboard interface. This puts software at the software state we were sitting in 1 1/4 years ago before I started drafting a new UI except with more features that were more optimally integrated into the package.
[det]Nerd Things
People may not fully realize it, but Vichan is a dead end and their HTML and JavaScript implementations leave developers at a dead end. Not that I really endorse alternatives such as JSChan or Lynxchan which think NodeJS doesn't have similar problems as PHP... at least the UI is more moddern
Positives: No major raids or attacks on the site yet I've still been promoting Kissu. FAQ and Rules have been clarified to make it more clear to newcomers about what Kissu is about or how to use the new UI.
Negatives: Previously noted that we'd have an IRC channel, that exists(rizon#kissu) for when it needs to be used, but there are other ways to communicate that are better. Finances are what they are.

I can't replicate it but someone reported this once before and I assumed it was because I was uploading files at the time. But since it happened again there must be something a bit more tricky going on.


yeah, ok. I looked at line 1209 and I can see that something is off.


OK it should be resolved. When a mod hasn't posted or done any activity it triggers a set of stronger antispam features. I made a mistake in not including a PHP function file.


Wow, it really got a lot quicker.


yes. right now the only thing slowing down the site is image processing speed and the image transfer speed between servers.

Our tentative upgrade is going to be double the Ram and CPU with 250GB of storage. So images will be way faster and file size limits will likely be raised.

Today I begin a programming project to construct real numbers and various operations on them. I don't mean the wimpy limited precision floating point numbers that you've probably used if you've ever written a program in your life. Nor do I mean arbitrary precision numbers which can have as many digits as you like (until your computer runs out of memory) but still have irrecoverable rounding error because the digits end at some point. I mean exact representations of numbers that can be queried to any precision (which in practice may be limited by time and memory constraints).

This has been done many times before and probably much better than I will manage, so I don't expect to create anything really novel or useful. This is primarily for my own edification, to learn more about numbers and the computable/constructive reals. In this thread I will blog about what I'm doing and discuss the philosophy of numbers with anyone who's interested.

i was thinking about this problem too, and the only thing I got is that if we know one of them halts then we can just wait and then declare the other one as the non-halting one and itll be technically in finite time

but that just seems trivial


it is trivial, but how is that a problem?
The same way is argued for the semidecidability of the halting problem.


What wording would you use to describe a property which, being true for some natural number k, must be true for all subsequent natural numbers? The concept seems to come up a lot in this.


Isn't that the principle of induction, or something related to it?


That's a way of proving things. I'm talking about describing something already known. To give a specific example, one of the requirements chosen for x to represent a real number is that for any rational number eps > 0 there be a k such that width(x[k]) [the width of the kth interval being used to define x] is less then eps. But it's not just one k for which this is true; we can prove that since the widths of the intervals are decreasing, if it's true for some k, it's true for all k that come after.

Ideas for words to describe this property: increasingly true, increasing, monotone, monotonic, isotone, isotonic, weakening, upward, true upward, onward, true onward, expanding, improving, permanent, once-always

it's something easy to patch on my end but it seems like something you should patch because requiring that cookie is no longer vichan api


whatever you did fixed it


I wanted to get /b/thread/5941.json to work in case, but that's seeming to be harder than i thought with all the rules in the server block


will replace the floatbar concept with a window that appears on page startup when there's a new news item.

This will contain the message of the day concept that was attached to the vichan UI and reduce the number of info messages on first load.


the good old days...

Extended downtime in 30 minutes. Site will be redirected while down.
Schedule of downtime:
- 12:00est > DNS redirects and I do a 2nd backup of frozen site.
- 18:00est or less > site is wiped.
- 19:00est > begin restoring stuff
- 00:00est > site back up and I begin fixing any issues
- 12:00est > site should be fully operational

Timetable is just a rough approximation to give you the idea of what's happening. This is based on the 4taba backup which was much harder to do. Should be much smoother on kissu since this server only has the Kissu.moe rendering/posting handlers and the banners.

When the site is restored you can use this for general reporting until I move it back into >>>/b/


File:8d11acd4ec.png (20.52 KB,563x431)

wanted to install php8.0 to give the site a speed boost but it would require the site being down until noon tommorow. They added so many changes to PHP that this decade old vichan hunk of junk flops around like a fish out of water. Maybe another time.

In other news this 10 hour detour in site activity has given us 2-3GB which will last us a bit. If the site fills up too quickly I'll look more seriously into server changes and not penny pinch to the last month of our server lease.


Posting should be fully operational at this point. If anything isn't then place it into this thread.

banners.kissu.moe is still a bit broken. I'll be tending to that for the next few hours.


Looks like everything is back and running. I'll move this thread to /b/ when the timeline has passed.




done with things for now

In order to increase the amount of SSD space we have available for Kissu I'm doing reinstall for our two servers. First will be the side server and then the main server.

Shortly before scheduled downtime posting will be frozen and there will be some redirects set up so that the community is directed into my other imageboards (4taba and kissu).

On Jan 10 at 12:00 EST the following services will be down for 24 hours MAXIMUM(list may be edited):
- 4taba.net -> DNS will be redirected into kissu.moe temporarily
- taba archiver
- theatre.kissu
- luna.kissu -> Most of our images, new images will be redirected into haiji.kissu during downtime
- Sageru IRC Bot
- umami
- Captchouli captcha
- kissu-cards

On Jan 12 at 12:00 EST the main kissu server will be down for 24 hours MAXIMUM:

good chance that the luna servers will still be usable because of cloudflare's CDN, so I'm curious if there will be any service distruption on kissu aside from captcha not working.

I can see the increase in space


I forgot about the squid server.


File:a39989bad9.png (18.02 KB,534x359)

Services should be back now. 4taba has a bit more configuration to get to and the db was an earlier version than I had intended to save, but other than that seems to be smooth.

Learned a few things for Wednesday's clear.
Disk space issues seem to be resolved.
