Site Security Updated

Yep. It's been literally an age or longer since I last posted here. So what better way to break the drought than to tell everyone they should update their passwords :troll:

Why you ask? I've updated Sandbox to use more modern hashing functions that were probably somewhat overdue. The existing setup wasn't in any danger yet, but why wait? With the changes made the site can now adapt to updated security hashing in PHP itself and will gain from stronger algorithms being used to protect passwords.

So ya'll might want to go ahead and update your passwords here to take advantage of the additional security.

Well. I guess that's that then.

Arthmoor, don't take this the wrong way, but you're too dang smart to be a conservative / Republican / right winger... however you define yourself.

While there have been many intelligent and well-versed Conservative thinkers in history, William F. Buckley -for one - was at least a Republican I could respect (even if some of his views in the 50s/60s were terrible). But today's brand of hard right Republican thought of the likes you promote on your About page, like Limbaugh and Hannity, are the very thing that are tearing the Republican establishment apart.

Now don't get me wrong, there are a lot of stupid liberals on the left and we have our own issues (though I consider myself a moderate by most standards), but so much of Conservative politics is steeped in the politics of promoting extreme nationalism, fear of minorities, racism, class division by promoting the interests of the wealthy above common workers, and more importantly the politics of fear of others outside of the straight, white male paradigm.

Surely an intelligent person like you would see through the fear-inducing rhetoric that guys like Limbaugh and Hannity promote as simply crass attempts to solidify the ranks?

Not to mention, you're too smart to be childishly printing "RIP United States of America July 1776 - Nov 2012" as a signature -- why? Because Barack Obama won re-election? That's precisely the kind of hyperbolic nonsensical outrage that modern conservatives promote and yet its not at all based in reality; it is the very antithesis of conservatism, it is reactionary at its core.

Perhaps California's penchant for left-leaning politics has made you cynical?

Either way, whatever your politics are (as long as you stay away from the realm of ultra-nationalist / white supremacist political territory), I'm still a huge fan of your work and I won't let our differences dissuade me from using and admiring your excellent work in the Elder Scrolls modding community.

I hope that in time your views will become more moderate and you'll come to reject the politics that guys like Limbaugh represent for whom there is no middle ground.

Heh. That response was wildly out of place for the topic, but....

Everything you just described in your 3rd paragraph describes liberalism to a T. Extremism, fear (and/or victimization of) minorities, racism, class division, and politics of fear. If you listen to the words spoken by people like Obama, Clinton (bot of them), Sanders, etc, this should be pretty obvious. Follow that with looking at the things these people have actually done, their voting records, and how they've stacked SCOTUS, and you ought to be scared for where this country is heading.

My signature is basically a summation of what I feel the left has done to this country and IMO I don't think it is recoverable if another one is elected in November.

Also, trust me, if you lived in California, you'd know firsthand what letting the left run amok can do, and it's the same crap Obama and other socialists are trying to do to us on a national scale.
